* CallForward: The novelization casually references concepts and characters introduced after Tom Baker left the show, up to and including [[Recap/DoctorWhoS32E4TheDoctorsWife the Corsair]].

* ContinuitySnarl: So... which version of "Shada" ''really'' happened? Did Romana and the Fourth Doctor meet Chronotis, or did the events of "The Five Doctors" distract them and it wasn't until four lives later the Doctor remembered to go back? And of course the script and the novelisation don't ''entirely'' match. We'll probably just have to blame the Time War..
* DiscoDan: In the novel, Chris is a mild example. His [[SeventiesHair long hair]] and flared trousers are just starting to be very out of fashion in 1978, and he feels alienated by how all the young undergrads are dressed in tight jeans and short hair. He also gives preferential treatment to a student wearing a Jethro Tull t-shirt because he feels like he looks more normal.

** Multiple further MythologyGags about ''Hitchhiker's'' are made in the novelisation, such as Skagra's observation that the human economy seems to be based on moving small pieces of green paper around and that everyone is very excited about digital watches (a shoutout to the opening of ''The Restaurant at the Edge of the Universe''), and Chronotis saying "Time! Don't talk to me about time!", a paraphrase of Marvin's famous line. Additionally, the whole book is written in a pretty obvious {{pastiche}} of Adams' writing style, which also counts as this.

Added DiffLines:

* EndOfAnEra: Though never broadcast, this story marked the end of the following features of the show from a production standpoint:
** The 1967 arrangement of the theme by Delia Derbyshire.
** The tunnel opening sequence by Bernard Lodge and the diamond series logo introduced in "[[Recap/DoctorWhoS11E1TheTimeWarrior The Time Warrior]]".
** Graham Williams's tenure as producer; the rest of the show's original run would be produced by Creator/JohnNathanTurner.
** Creator/DouglasAdams's tenure as script editor.
** Dudley Simpson's tenure as incidental music composer.
** David Brierley as the voice of K9; John Leeson would reprise the role the following season onwards.
** The Fourth Doctor's multicolour scarf and brown frock coat; the following season would feature the Doctor (in Tom Baker's final season on the show) in a burgundy & purple scarf and a larger burgundy frock coat.
** The TARDIS prop designed by Barry Newberry; the next nine years of the show's original run would utilize a new, fibreglass prop designed by Tom Yardley-Jones.
** The use of six-part stories; all future serials would span four parts at most.

* SissyVillain: One of the flaws Creator/DouglasAdams noted about his script was that he'd written Skagra in this way, which he admitted was lazy on his part and neither funny nor frightening, especially in comparison to the dynamic and interesting villains in his much preferred script "[[Recap/DoctorWhoS17E2CityOfDeath City of Death]]". He is RescuedFromTheScrappyHeap in both the Creator/BigFinish adaptation (in which he gets a ridiculously [[LargeHam hammy]] performance from Creator/AndrewSachs) and the 2012 novelisation, which makes him androgynous and unexpressive as well as fleshing out his backstory and personality a ''lot''.
