** Forcefully involving the Doctor when she didn't ''really'' need him to be present.
** Not noticing exactly who was present for her plan. (Here, that the Doctor's companion who she was recording was not human.)
** Including a Time Lord's brain in her almost complete collection, which destabilizes the whole thing. (Here, the problem is that she got a second time lord instead of a human.)

Sadly, Kate O'Mara made her last on-screen performance as the Rani in this story in her lifetime, continuing the role in audio stories until her eventual death. Oddly enough, she has picked up a passenger. The companion she's seen with in the story has his own origin story in audio format, but since this special is strictly dismissed from canon, he's a holdover from a non-canon universe, and said origin story is placed firmly in non-canon territory as well.

well. That explains why her TARDIS appears to be reduced to a villainous knock-off of the Doctor's rather than the unique design it used to have (besides budgetary constraints/desktop changes).

This was Creator/JonPertwee's last appearance as the Doctor in an official setting before his death three years later, RIP. His final performance as the Doctor in a filmed ''Doctor Who'' story, sets, location shoots and all, was technically in 1995, for the fan production ''Devious''. As a point of trivia, this is also Tom Baker's first reprisal of his role (barring his narration of the unearthed [[{{Recap/DoctorWhoS17E6Shada}} "Shada"]]) since departing the series in '81, and he wouldn't be back again until AudioPlay/BigFinishDoctorWho. Creator/NicholasCourtney finally got to be featured alongside Sixth Doctor Colin Baker -- meaning that he's the ''only'' actor to be featured alongside all seven original Doctors at any point in time in the TV show ([[Recap/DoctorWhoS3E4TheDaleksMasterPlan He also played Bret Vyon]]), and alongside all the original eight if you include ''AudioPlay/BigFinishDoctorWho''.

* TakeOurWordForIt: The Rani's TARDIS has trapped the Doctor in London's East End via a time tunnel that is about to re-materialize in Greenwich. Really! Little effort is made to make the plinth look like a TARDIS; the shot opens with Leeta standing around rather cluelessly in front of it.
