Added DiffLines:

* RealLifeWritesThePlot: K-9's sidelining due to robo-laryngitis. Sources differ on to why exactly this happened some say it was because Creator/TerryNation hated K-9 and didn't want to "degrade" his Daleks by making them appear with K-9 on-screen, while others have said that because of the amount of quarry filming in this episode, there was no way that K-9 would ever have been able to play a major part in the episode

* LighterAndSofter: Compared to the last Dalek story, this one is much more comedic.



* UnusualEuphemism: The Doctor tells the Daleks to "Spack off!" when he's threatening to blow up Davros. (This was Tom Baker messing up a line, but it's entered into Doctor Who history as a particularly vicious Gallifreyan insult.)

Added DiffLines:

* EvilCannotComprehendGood: The Doctor ends up in a MexicanStandoff with the Daleks. He is threatening to destroy Davros with a bomb unless they let him leave with his captive, but the Daleks respond by bringing in several human captives and exterminating them one by one until the Doctor surrenders. He threatens to set off the bomb right on the spot, but the Daleks argue that such an action would be irrational and impossible because it would kill the Doctor as well. Davros tells them that the Doctor is actually willing to do just that since "his logic is impaired by irrational sentiment".


Added DiffLines:

* MexicanStandoff: A squad of Daleks corner the Doctor, but he threatens to blow up Davros if they don't "spack off!" When they do stand down momentarily, the Doctor says "I believe this is what's called a Mexican Standoff".


Added DiffLines:

* UnexpectedCharacter: Davros returns, despite being killed in his first appearance.

Added DiffLines:

* MoodWhiplash: It's pretty obvious where Creator/TerryNation ends and Creator/DouglasAdams begins. Dark scenes (the Daleks executing prisoners) are followed with comedic scenes (the Doctor making fun of Davros).

to:

* AdaptationExpansion: The novelisation adds a few things:
** During the Doctor's escape from the Dalek command centre, the Daleks use hoverbouts to chase him.
** Tyssan tries to bully the Doctor and Romana into going with the prisoners to put Davros on trial.

* YouLookFamiliar: Lalla Ward, after guest-starring as Princess Astra in the previous episode, takes on the role of Romana; the episode spends several minutes climbing out from under the weight of the lampshade. (It doesn't help that Terry Nation turned in his scripts before Romana's re-casting was confirmed; Douglas Adams had to write the new opening scene himself, and the resultant change in tone is jarring.)

Is there a stowaway aboard the TARDIS? No, it's just Romana, who has regenerated off-screen, for no apparent reason, and has chosen to do so into an identical double of [[Recap/DoctorWhoS16E6TheArmageddonFactor Princess Astra]]. The Doctor tells her to pick something better, and she shows off several more bodies (none of which meet the Doctor's approval either) before returning to the one she started with. (The Franchise/DoctorWhoExpandedUniverse has made several attempts to explain ''why'' Romana regenerated, as well as ''why'' she was able to change her form several times without wasting regenerations. Few make real sense.) Also, K-9 comes down with a case of robot laryngitis and stays in the TARDIS for the rest of the adventure.
