Added DiffLines:

* DatedHistory: The story is heavily dependent on the idea that Mary had a phantom pregnancy, which for a long time was the accepted story. In fact, these days most historians believe she either had [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Molar_pregnancy a molar pregnancy]] or maybe ovarian cancer.

* DevelopmentGag: Six spends most of the episode in velvet and ruffles. Creator/ColinBaker originally wanted to play the Doctor in black velvet, but producer Creator/JohnNathanTurner insisted on the technicolor nightmare coat.

--->What would you say if I were to tell you that I once destroyed an entire race, that I have led friends to their deaths and caused numerous wars. That my intervention has led to peaceful people taking up arms and good people having their faith or reason destroyed. Because I failed to act millions upon millions of people have been enslaved or killed. What if I had done all of those things but had always, always believed I was doing to the right thing.

Written by Jacqueline Rayner, The Marian Conspiracy was the first Doctor Who audio story to introduce an original companion, [[CoolOldLady Dr. Evelyn Smythe]]. The story itself is something of a throwback to the First Doctor era, seeing no involvement of an extraterrestrial threat or technology gone bad, but dealing purely with historical events, something that had been unseen since [[{{Recap/DoctorWhoS19E5BlackOrchid}} the tenure of the Fifth Doctor]].

Written by Jacqueline Rayner, The Marian Conspiracy was the first Doctor Who audio story to introduce an original companion, [[CoolOldLady Dr. Evelyn Smythe]]. It is one of the rare instances of a pure historical story, unseen since [[{{Recap/DoctorWhoS19E5BlackOrchid}} the tenure of the Fifth Doctor]].

* CardboardPrison: The Tower. Lampshaded, but still not quite realistic. The ridiculousness of the escape became a RunningGag throughout BigFinish and got a bit more lampshading later on in "Project: Twilight", "Jubilee", "Colditz" and "Something Inside".
