* AsLongAsItSoundsForeign: "Gracht" is Dutch for "city canal" or "moat". The actors make a valiant attempt at pronouncing it, but only get the "a" and "t" right and noticably struggle with the "ch" throughout the story. (The "g", "r" and "ch" should actually ''all'' be guttural/rolling.) As later heard in "Arc Of Infinity" and "Vincent And The Doctor", this started a time-honoured tradition of no ''Series/DoctorWho'' actor ever being able to pronounce Dutch. Of course, since the story takes place on another planet altogether, this comes with an easy HandWave here.

Added DiffLines:

* ApatheticCitizens: The peasants don't seem to care for the whole SuccessionCrisis.
** The Archimandrite gets the prize: Grendel explains basically his whole plan (he plans the king's wedding, his funeral and his wife's second wedding in less than a minute) and the Archimandrite doesn't seem to remark anything strange.


Added DiffLines:

* HonorBeforeReason: Reynart's swordmaster refuses to attack Grendel while the latter is under a flag of truce, even though he knows Grendel will break the truce.

* CallBack: This isn't exactly the first time we saw the Doctor win at fencing against a villain.


Added DiffLines:

* DistressedDamsel: Princess Strella can't care for herself as well as Romana can.
* Doppelganger: Strella and Romana look exactly alike.
* DoppelgangerReplacementLoveInterest: played with, Grendel doesn't really care whether Reynart marries Strella, Romana or an android, as long as he can kill both.
* EvenEvilHasLovedOnes: Though he's not in love with her, Grendel really cares about Lamia. Mostly because she knows how to make androids, but there's somewhat more than this.


Added DiffLines:

* HostageSituation: Reynart and Romana are forced to marry (and be killed afterwards) to save the life of Strella.


Added DiffLines:

* StageWhisper: Grendel whispers "think of the princess" to Romana and Reynart, who are on less than an arm's lenght of the Archimandrite, but he doesn't appear to have heard anything.
