Added DiffLines:

* CliffhangerCopout: It looks like it's curtains for Romana in one cliffhanger as she is trapped in a containment tube with a bomb ticking down. Next episode the bomb reaches zero and doesn't go off. Agella then reveals the bomb was never armed and thus Romana was never in any danger.


Added DiffLines:

* MaleGaze: When Agella blocks the Doctor's path in the ruined Dalek City, we are treated to a close-up of her rear.

* RecycledSoundtrack: Skaro sounds from "[[Recap/DoctorWhoS1E2TheDaleks The Daleks]]" can be heard. To be fair, this episode ''takes place'' on Skaro.

The one where the Daleks are almost literally falling apart at the seams.

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 very alien 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.

** The Tenth Doctor's [[Recap/DoctorWho2005CSTheChristmasInvasion later explanation]] about a Time Lord's physical form being slightly malleable post-regeneration is generally accepted by the fans as a halfway decent HandWave as to why this could happen.

At least, as to why the body montage isn't wasting her regenerations for a gag. There's still no knowing what caused her to regenerate.

Added DiffLines:

* AchillesHeel: The major weakness of the Movellan design was each android's external power pack which, being carried on their belts, was easily removed and completely shut down the android, not to mention they could easily be modified, reprogramming the android to obey human orders.


Added DiffLines:

* DeceptivelyHumanRobots: The Movellans outwardly resembled physically attractive Humans of various ethnicities and both genders. All of the Movellan androids wore white, form-fitting uniforms and their hair in silver braids resembling metallic dreadlocks. Being androids, the Movellans were stronger than humans. Because they do not wish to reveal their mechanical status to others, they do not allow aliens to see them in death, claiming such a thing would be against their code of honour.
