* ActingForTwo: Mary Tamm as both Romana and Strella, not to mention all the androids.



* ShoutOut: Count Grendel was named after the anatagonist of ''Mythology/{{Beowulf}}''.



* YouLookFamiliar: The Archimandrite is Professor Clegg, the ill-fated psychic from the beginning of "[[Recap/DoctorWhoS11E5PlanetOfTheSpiders Planet of the Spiders]]". And Lennox, the ill-fated physicist from "[[Recap/DoctorWhoS7E3TheAmbassadorsOfDeath The Ambassadors of Death]]". And Viner, the ill-fated archaeologist from "[[Recap/DoctorWhoS5E1TheTombOfTheCybermen The Tomb of the Cybermen]]". Finding religion and steering clear of professors turns out to be a good move: he survives to the end of this one.

* 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.

* CostumePorn: Romana's purple and green hat-coat-trouser ensemble, which is apparently fashionable on Tara. In reality, Mary Tamm herself actually designed this costume.
