* ButtMonkey: Lampshaded by Harry during his encounter with the clam: "Why is it always me that puts a foot in it!?".



* StupidEvil: Nyder has a brilliantly illogical moment where he opens fire on the Doctor, Harry, and ''his own boss'', risking his general's life just to kill a couple of people out of racism. This actually works to enhance how much of a psycho he is.

Meanwhile, some of Davros's fellow scientists are uneasy about the experiments and demand they be stopped. Davros turns the Daleks on them, but his creations then turn on their creator and Davros himself is exterminated. Thals who survived the massacre destroy the entrance to the bunker, sealing the Daleks inside, while the Doctor and co make an escape thanks to the Time Ring. The Doctor estimates that his interference will have put the development of the Daleks back by a thousand years... but instead it's the catalyst for events that nearly destroy him and the whole of creation. Because after all, when it comes to war, someone has to fire the first shot...

* SetRightWhatOnceWentWrong: Not-quite-subverted. The Time Lords send the Doctor tries back in time to prevent the creation of the Daleks, with the goal of either preventing their creation, or at least making them less aggressive. While there, the Doctor is captured by the Daleks' creation.creator and is made to detail every Dalek vulnerability he knows about. Being the universe's resident expert on fighting Daleks, this would have been a catastrophe had he not destroyed the tape before leaving the scene.

* FantasticRacism: This serial shows that on pre-Dalek Skaro, the Kaleds (the race that became the Daleks) and the Thals hated each other, and both of them hated the mutants, to the point that the Thals (who were usually shown as pacifist allies of the Doctor) used them as slave labor.
