The Doctor quotes from ''Theatre/RomeoAndJuliet'' ("Night's candles are burned out and Sarah Jane are found twice near a dead body. Of course, they are jocund day stands tiptoe on the only suspects for most of misty mountain top. Or something like that") and ''Theatre/{{Hamlet}}'' ("That is the serial.
* TheXOfY
question"), and says that he met the Bard once.
-->'''The Doctor''': "I met Shakespeare, you know. Charming fellow, dreadful actor".
-->'''Sarah''': "Maybe that's why he took up writing".
-->'''The Doctor''': "Very probably".

Added DiffLines:

* VideoInsideFilmOutside: The interior scenes were videotaped in the studio and exterior scenes on the alien planet were filmed on location the location in question being another studio, namely Creator/EalingStudios, which required the use of film as opposed to videotape at the time.
* WholePlotReference: To ''Film/ForbiddenPlanet'', which itself was a whole-plot reference to ''Theatre/TheTempest''. It also uses elements from Universal's JekyllAndHyde.
* {{Yellowface}}: According to the actor, the captain was supposed to look Chinese and had heavy latex prosthetics applied to create this effect. However, the makeup 'didn't go with [his] face', with the result that he doesn't even look like they were going for this, let alone look like an East Asian.
