* AnachronismStew: It's implied that the action may be taking place pre-1066 ("Wessex," as a place name, was quickly dispensed with after the Norman Conquest), but the armor and weapons look to be anywhere between the 13 to 15th centuries. Plus peeling potatoes!

Plus peeling potatoes!potatoes! Close investigation of the footage reveals that there are no potatoes in that scene. They do, however, appear in the Target novelisation demonstrating that [[Creator/TerranceDicks Terrance Dicks]] was right to study [[YouFailHistoryForever English]] at university!

Added DiffLines:

* TimeyWimeyBall: The Doctor recognizes the Sontarans, complete with asking about their interminable war against Rutan Host, despite them never appearing in the series before. It's shown ''12 years later'' that the Second Doctor had [[Recap/DoctorWhoS22E4TheTwoDoctors encountered them before]], along with the Sixth Doctor.


Added DiffLines:

* WhatHappenedToTheMouse: We're introduced to the scullions who work in Irongron's castle, who get a significant scene discussing feminism with Sarah Jane. We see the Doctor go out of his way to evacuate Irongron's men, but we never see him go back for the women and they don't appear in later scenes. Sarah doesn't even express any concern about them. Did they get blown up?

Added DiffLines:

* UnwantedRescue: When the Doctor finds Rubeish at the castle, the scientist doesn't want to be rescued because he's too interested in the work being carried out for Linx. Also, he's so nearsighted and so naive that he hasn't actually realized how much danger he's in.

* WorthyOpponent: Irongron briefly considers the Doctor as this, appreciating his [[DeadpanSnarker wit]] as he dodges the bullets of the firing squad.
-->'''Irongron:''' Beshrew me, I grow fond of this Doctor.

** After the Doctor tells the Brigadier that he'll go search for the missing Professor Rubeish in the TARDIS, he pretty much says this to the Brigadier after the Brigadier points out the TARDIS's not-quite-good landing record.
