* ShoutOut:
** The Doctor quotes Creator/WilfridGibson's poem ''The Ballad of Flannan Isle'' as they leave Fang Rock.
-->"Aye, though we hunted high and low, and hunted everywhere, of the three men's fate we found no trace. In any time, in any place. But a door ajar and an untouched needle and an over-toppled chair".
** The Doctor, when investigating the generator, says "[[Literature/AliceInWonderland Curiouser and curiouser]]".

* ActionGirl: Leela has already shown herself to be one, but she's particularly BadAss in this episode, slapping a character who goes into hysterics, personally going out into the fog with her knife to kill the alien and later smashing Ruben's door down with a sledgehammer she was earlier taking practice swings with.

* RealLifeWritesThePlot: The reason Leela's eyes are bleached by the explosion in the lighthouse at the end of part four was more practical than story-based: Louise Jameson hated the brown contacts she had to wear, citing them as irritating and painful. As a result, she stated that she would only stay for Season 15 if she could stop wearing the contacts, causing Creator/TerrenceDicks to incorporate a re-write into the script to explain the color change in-universe.
