* WhatYearIsThisWhatYearIsThis: The Doctor asks Laurence this, much to his bewilderment:
-->'''Laurence''': What year?
-->'''Doctor''': It's a simple enough question, surely.
-->'''Laurence''': Are you telling me you don't know what
-->'''Doctor''': If I knew I wouldn't ask. Don't be obtuse, man.

* ScrewDestiny: The Doctor and Sarah encounter the wrathful god Sutekh in the 1910s. Sarah argues that they don't have to stop him since they already know the world wasn't destroyed back then. The Doctor takes her into the future and shows the world has been utterly obliterated, proving time is in flux and they're the only ones who can stop Sutekh.

* ScrewDestiny: SeriesContinuityError: The plot hinges on the idea that the TARDIS' controls are "isomorphic" and can only be manipulated by the Doctor, despite characters like Susan, Jo and Harry having piloted it in previous stories. Robert Holmes later offered the explanation that it was because the Doctor and Sarah encounter was lying, though Sutekh's ability to read the wrathful god Sutekh in the 1910s. Sarah argues that they don't have to stop him since they already know the world wasn't destroyed back then. The Doctor takes her into the future and shows the world has been utterly obliterated, proving time is in flux and they're the only ones who can stop Sutekh.Doctor's mind makes this unpopular.



* SmartBall: Sarah Jane suddenly gains a lot of knowledge on how to fire a rifle and on Egyptian mythology.
* TheSocialDarwinist: Sutekh despite already being one of the most powerful beings in the Universe takes this to extremes, wanting to destroy all life to prevent something that could kill him evolving.



* StockPuzzle: In the story's defence, the ol' KnightsAndKnaves stumper might have been new when Sutekh's prison was made. 7000 years ago.

* KillEmAll: Outside the Doctor and Sarah, no-one else makes it out of the serial alive.

to:

* KillEmAll: Outside the Doctor and Sarah, no-one else makes it out of the serial alive. Except a bit-part and he only survives because he's in ''Egypt'' while the action takes place in England. The novelisation states that this character is killed off-screen by cultist henchmen later.

* AlwaysSomeoneBetter: Sutekh is so powerful that if he gets loose, not even the full power of the Time Lords will be able to stop him. It took the combined efforts of seven hundred and forty one of his fellow Phaester Osirians to imprison him the first time - Sutekh is ''that'' powerful.
