. . . just as the Doctor had finished his last goodbye to Rose in the previous episode, [[Creator/CatherineTate some random broad]] pops up in the TARDIS. ([[Recap/BigFinishDoctorWhoNEDAS1E1BloodOfTheDaleksPartOne Again.]]) Neither of them was expecting this. And she's wearing a wedding dress.

* BigDamnHeroes: At first, it seems like the primarily hesitant and cowardly Lance is going to pull a stealthy one, involving a fire axe and an evil monologing Empress . . . [[{{Subverted}} and then it turns out he was just adding insult to injury]] in his EvilAllAlong reveal.

-->'''The Doctor:''' There was a Racnoss web at the centre of the Earth, but my people unravelled their power source. Because huon particles ceased to exist and the Racnoss were stuck, so they just stayed in hibernation for ''billions'' of years, frozen, dead, kaput! So you're the new key, brand new particles, living particles, and they need you to open it . . . and you have never ''been'' so quiet!

'''Donna:''' And it's terrible. That place was flooding and burning and they were dying and you stood there like... I don't know, a stranger. And then you made it ''snow''. I mean, you scare me to death!

The one where the Doctor wins with a Nintendo 64 controller.

* {{Cloudcuckoolander}}: On seeing the massive hole in the Torchwood lab going all the way down to the center of the Earth, Donna wonders if there are dinosaurs down there (because she saw a TV show with something like that once). The Doctor is just completely dumbfounded by that one.

** The Racnoss Webstar bears a striking resemblance to the Cylon Basestar of the re-imagined ''Series/{{Battlestar Galactica|2003}}''. Both ships are made with Y shapes stacked on each other. The names are also quite similar.

* RealitySubtext: Creator/CatherineTate and Creator/DavidTennant became close friends during the filming of this special. This is ''easily'' seen on Tennant's face during pretty much every scene he shares with her, and on Tate's during Donna's softer moments.

She and her fiancé, Lance, go along with the Doctor to help find out what's going on. They avoid the "pilot fish" and find a Racnoss nest inside a Thames Flood Barrier, in the basement of the company where Donna temps. Which, unbeknownst to Donna, turns out to be part of Torchwood.

* {{Foreshadowing}}: A simple rewatch and some critical thinking (or someone who's just paying real close attention on their first watch) will reveal that, for a man who's apparently never been down to the hidden depths of the abandoned Torchwood facility beneath the Thames, Lance sure knows the quickest way to leave the lab, circle around and up, and make his way to the Empress in record time. This is a big clue, but relatively easy-to-miss in the heat of the moment and quick run of the sequence of shots, that he knows more than he lets on about the facility and its general layout.

-->'''Doctor''': Do you know what I said before, about a time machine? Well, I lied, and now it's time to use it.
* ItsAlwaysSpring: It's supposed to be Christmas, but the episode was filmed in warm weather as evidenced by the green trees seen during the car chase on the highway. Also, despite being famous for cold weather Donna doesn't even shiver at running around London with only a sleeveless wedding dress.
