* WagTheDirector: By Proxy: The massive (and completely gratuitous) car chase that takes up most of the second episode was the writers' farewell gift to Jon Pertwee, who appreciated any excuse to drive motor vehicles very fast.



* YouLookFamiliar:
** Professor Clegg is the third nervous scientist played in the series by Cyril Shaps, after [[Recap/DoctorWhoS5E1TheTombOfTheCybermen Viner]] and [[Recap/DoctorWhoS7E3TheAmbassadorsOfDeath Lennox]].
** And a case of You Sound Familiar: Lupton was previously the voice of [[Recap/DoctorWhoS10E5TheGreenDeath the BOSS]].

* TimeMaster: Unlike other Time Lords, K'anpo has developed his PsychicPowers to the extent that he can, among other things, travel through time and space without the need for technology.
-->'''K'anpo:''' I wouldn't have chosen your alternative. To borrow a TARDIS was a little naughty, to say the least.
-->'''Doctor:''' Yes, well, I had to get away. I hadn't your power.

* {{Tulpa}}: Cho-je turns out to be a tulpa of K'anpo's next regeneration, projected by the physically frail K'anpo to deal with his students and avoid awkward questions from the humans about his regeneration.

* {{Understatement}}: K'ampo warns that's the Fourth Doctor may at first behave a little erratic. [[CloudCuckoolander It doesn't wear off.]]

But the utterance of hope that the Doctor couldn't gasp out before his demise shows up in the form of K'anpo Rimpoche. Sarah learns the Doctor isn't so dead after all, because the wise Time Lord sees that his old friend needs a "push" to make his cells [[TheNthDoctor regenerate]]. Sarah didn't know what the Doctor meant by regeneration when he first spoke of it, and is a might confused at what is going on. But the Brigadier has dealt with this change of appearance before. A bit diffused by the idea the Doctor is going to have a personality tilt again after two oft incorrigible faces, he resignedly says, "Well, [[HereWeGoAgain here we go again...]]" Jon Pertwee fades away.

* ForgotAboutHisPowers: At one point, there's a lengthy chase scene involving a car, a hovercraft, and two boats... only for the villain to suddenly remember that one of the powers given him by the spiders is the ability to teleport. He disappears and the chase is over.

* WelcomeBackTraitor: Although Yates doesn't rejoin [=UNIT=], Sarah and the Doctor are very trusting of him despite [[Recap/DoctorWhoS11E2InvasionOfTheDinosaurs that nasty "Golden Age" business]].

* WelcomeBackTraitor: Although Yates doesn't actually rejoin [=UNIT=], Sarah and the Doctor are very awfully trusting of him despite him, considering that [[Recap/DoctorWhoS11E2InvasionOfTheDinosaurs that nasty "Golden Age" business]].the last time they saw him]], he tried to RetGone most of the human race.

* InsistentTerminology: The spiders prefer to be called "eight-legs". They prefer it so much, in fact, that using the word "spider" on Metebelis III [[DisproportionateRetribution carries a death sentence]].
