* ConspicuousGloves: Chase almost always wears black leather gloves, except when meditating in his greenhouse. According to the {{Novelization}} and the DVD commentary, this is because Chase DoesntLikeBeingTouched, at least not by his fellow humans.

** The novelization by Phillip Hinchcliffe (who produced this story) has the Doctor knock out Scorby with a "Venusian Neck Lock".

* GenreSavvy: The Doctor, overlapping with DangerDeadpan as usual. When Chase says he's going to kill him, Sarah protests, but the Doctor simply points out that, as the villain, Chase ''has'' to kill them; "We keep interfering!" he observes. The Doctor's insight and honesty suitably impress Chase.

Added DiffLines:

* OutOfCharacterMoment: The Fourth Doctor is noticeably more TuxedoAndMartini-like than he is normally, even in his episodes which were originally written with the very SpyFiction-influenced Third Doctor [[CharacterizationMarchesOn still in the writer's minds]] (like "[[Recap/DoctorWhoS12E1Robot Robot]]"). For instance, he is very much an ActionHero in it, and willing to use fists at first opportunity, the same thing the Leela era (when he has a warrior as a companion) makes a very big thing out of him ''not'' doing. He also uses WigDressAccent to infiltrate a mansion, even though the Fourth Doctor had very little skill at disguises and tended to prefer force of personality and charm (one of the things that separated him from Three, who used secret identities, and Two, who was [[MasterActor a chameleon]]). This is all because the script was adapted from a script for ''Series/TheAvengers'' by an ''Avengers'' writer.

The one where the Doctor jumps a man.

One of the scientists, Winlett, is infected by the pod and begins to turn into a Krynoid himself. But he's destroyed by a bomb set by a mercenary, Scorby, and a rather confused botanist, Keeler, who steal the other pod on behalf of their employer, plant collector (and nutjob) Harrison Chase. Chase takes Sarah hostage and plans to open the pod in her presence, which will infect her. The Doctor rescues Sarah, and Keeler, who genuinely never wanted to get caught up in a murder case, ends up infected. This doesn't bother Chase much, and he begins to feed Keeler raw meat to accelerate the transformation. At this point, people start calling UNIT, but the Brig is in Geneva and his replacement isn't really the quick type.

* JanitorImpersonationIfiltration: The Doctor disguises himself as a chauffeur to sneak into a mansion, an odd moment since his usual bluffing tactic is being commanding and having charisma for miles. It convinces no-one - perhaps because of this, or perhaps because he was clearly still wearing his scarf under his coat.

* AmputationStopsSpread: After Winlett is infected by the Kyrnoid, the team plans to amputate his arm in the hope that it would maybe slow the infection while they think of something else to try. However, the Kyrnoid takes him over and he escapes before they can do so.

* ArtShift: Third of four Creator/TomBaker stories which use video rather than film for location shooting; as with "[[Recap/DoctorWhoS12E1Robot Robot]]", this was to accommodate the visual effects used in Parts 5 and 6.

* BerserkButton & BewareTheNiceOnes: This is one of at least two times during Four's tenure where the normally goofy Doctor is PISSED. THE FUCK. OFF.

* BerserkButton & BewareTheNiceOnes: This is one of at least two times during Four's tenure where the normally Folks, we're used to Four smiling a goofy Doctor is smile, all teeth and curls. We have never truly seen him PISSED. THE FUCK. OFF. Until now. While [[Recap/DoctorWhoS12E3TheSontaranExperiment The Sontaran Experiment]] gave us only a glimpse of it, this is the first of at least two times in Four's tenure where we see what happens when you set him off. And if you can piss off the ''Fourth'' Doctor, you're a rare breed. Or a moron.
