* Foreshadowing: When the Doctor first notices some tiny fish flying around a street light, he questions why people would be afraid of them as they fly away - as the camera turns away from the fish you can just make out the silhouette of the shark behind the Doctor.

* BowTiesAreCool: As [[TheNthDoctor Eleven's]] catchphrase, to be expected. It seems to inspire Kazran to believe likewise. Although in a slight subversion, he acknowledges that it's cool ''because'' he wears it and doesn't care how it looks.

** The Doctor states to Kazran that, in nine hundred years of time and space, he's never met anyone who isn't important.

** As in [[Recap/DoctorWho2007CSVoyageOfTheDamned "Voyage of the Damned"]], a giant space liner is crashing onto a planet, and the Doctor must save the day. Also there is a pretty blonde girl who is played by a famous singer, and a wealthy misanthrope obstructing the Doctor.
** As in [[Recap/DoctorWhoS31E4TheTimeOfAngels "The Time of Angels"]]/[[Recap/DoctorWhoS31E5FleshAndStone "Flesh and Stone"]], the story begins with a crashing Galaxy-class ship.
** Much like in Moffat's [[Recap/DoctorWhoS28E4TheGirlInTheFireplace "The Girl in the Fireplace"]], the Doctor shows up in someone's life at various points, only a few minutes between each visit for the Doctor but years for the person he's meeting. When Kazran asks him if he knows how it feels, the Doctor stays quiet.

'''The Doctor:''' (''looks at it, annoyed'') Yeah, shorted out. Finally, a lie too big.

* KickTheDog: Both subverted and played straight. Early on, Kazran is about to strike a small boy, but can't bring himself to do it. It's Kazran's failure to Kick that particular Dog which convinces the Doctor that [[HeelFaceTurn Kazran's redeemable.]] Kazran's father, however, [[AbusiveParents has no hesitation]] in ''hitting his own son'' because [[DisproportionateRetribution he was interested in an inch-long flying fish, and left the window open about six inches.]]
