* MistakenForSpies: When the Doctor is released, the rebels think it's because he's spying for the Company. Especially given the 1000 talmars he's been paid; the Company ''never'' gives anything away.

* BrokenAesop: The story is supposed to be a right-wing allegory about how taxation is bad, written by an openly Conservative writer. However, ignoring a few throwaway flippant comments made by the Doctor, the story is really about the evil of taxation that targets the poorest in society, and societies that strip away social safety nets so the untaxed rich can rake in massive profits. The reason for this situation is privatisation, where every utility (including sunlight) is run by corporate interests and the government is viewed only as an extension of the MegaCorp. At the very least, it comes across as left-wing in an Occupy kind of way. If you choose to read into the fact that the Doctor wins by inspiring a populist revolt to execute their leaders while quoting Karl Marx, it becomes actively ''Communist''. Not what you'd expect from something written by a UsefulNotes/MargaretThatcher supporter in 1977.
