* ShootTheShaggyDog: A significant proportion of [[spoiler:the ''entire universe'']] is [[spoiler:destroyed by entropy]]. Although insignificant on the scale of such an unbelievably cataclysmic event, the region destroyed includes [[spoiler:the Traken Union]], thereby almost immediately rendering all the events, people and struggles in [[spoiler:''[[Recap/DoctorWhoS18E6TheKeeperOfTraken The Keeper of Traken]]'' (the previous connected story)]] dramatically null, void and pointless. (The fact that this is only obvious when you [[FridgeLogic stop and consider it]] suggests that this was a side-effect rather than dramatic intent on the part of the writers).

The universe nearly ends and Creator/TomBaker leaves ''Doctor Who'' after an amazing seven years and forty-one (Recap/DoctorWhoS17E6Shada or forty-two) episodes. We're not sure which is more important at this stage.

The universe nearly ends and Creator/TomBaker leaves ''Doctor Who''. We're not sure which is more important at this stage.

The Doctor and Adric make a pit stop in 1981 Britain, so that the Doctor can materialize right on top of a real police box and make hyper-precise multi-dimensional measurements of it, which he needs to take to the mathematics nerds of Logopolis so they can fix the chameleon circuit. ([[{{ItMakesSenseInContext}} Just nod along, OK?]]) The Master, anticipating this, materialises his spare TARDIS (which [[Recap/DoctorWhoS14E3TheDeadlyAssassin he nicked from Goth that one time]]) around that exact same police box moments before. Which means that the Doctor's TARDIS now contains the Master's TARDIS containing a real police box. (Still following us?) Time and space get a bit wonky, so the Doctor and Adric investigate the string of [=TARDISes=] in the console room -- all identical except for being [[EvilIsNotWellLit progressively less well-lit]].

* AMillionIsAStatistic: The story involves the destruction of one quarter of the entire universe; by even the most conservative estimates that's a single-episode death toll expressible only in standard notation. And not only does nobody seem to care (including one character whose home ''intergalactic supercluster'' was destroyed [[note]] He also killed her Dad [[/note]]), the villain responsible gets the full DracoInLeatherPants treatment despite being possibly the worst mass-murderer in all fiction (but in all fairness, it was an accident)!

* UnwittingPawn: The Master coerces the Doctor into an alliance. If the whole universe disintegrates, there will never be a galaxy to rule, right? Not so fast: The Master plans to bargain the healing technobabble for the unquestioned allegiance of the universe's inhabitants.
