The one where Creator/MatthewWaterhouse throws up.

Previously on ''Series/DoctorWho'', the Doctor took a nasty spill from disconnecting the [[Recap/DoctorWhoS18E7Logopolis Pharos Project]]'s power cable, prompting a sudden regeneration. (It's a big one too -- [[SeriesContinuityError even his shoes regenerated!]]) Unfortunately, he doesn't take to it very well, and is in danger of turning senile; that is, unless he can get some rest and healing in the TARDIS' Zero Room, a sensory deprivation suite.

* ContinuityPorn: Some pinpoint the first major FanWank moment in the Classic series as being the Fifth Doctor's post-regeneration trauma causing him to go through impressions of all four previous Doctors.



* DistressedDude: Adric spends most of the story strung up in a web inside the Master's TARDIS.



* EverybodyLives: Well, nobody real dies.



* GettingCrapPastTheRadar: During the filming, Creator/MatthewWaterhouse had a ferocious hangover. Eventually, he ended up running over to a tree and vomiting during the scene where Tegan and the Doctor argue about who landed the TARDIS. The actors kept going so they could use the take. In the serial, if one listens carefully, Waterhouse can just barely be heard tossing his cookies off-screen.



* TheNthDoctor

to:

* TheNthDoctorNotNamedInTheOpeningCredits: Creator/TomBaker doesn't get credited for his (archived) pre-regeneration appearance.
* TheNthDoctor: Creator/PeterDavison makes his debut as the Doctor.
* OurGraphicsWillSuckInTheFuture: It turns out that the fantastically advanced TARDIS computer has a display that is outperformed by a UsefulNotes/ZXSpectrum. Justified in that later it turns out that the whole interface was a phony produced by the Master so that Tegan and Nyssa would think they were piloting the TARDIS.



* PlatonicCave: The eponymous Creator/MCEscher-esque setting, custom-made by the Master and PoweredByAForsakenChild, or Adric.



* SceneryPorn: The picturesque Castrovalvan [[GhibliHills countryside]], which comprises a good deal of Part 2.

* TimTaylorTechnology: The TARDIS manages to survive the Big Bang. After jettisoning some rooms first.

* AllThereInTheManual: In the novelisation, Nyssa worries that the Doctor will get high altitude edema.
** The Master set up the trap 500 years ago.



* ThrowItIn: According to TheOtherWiki and the DVDCommentary, Creator/MatthewWaterhouse was severely hungover and vomiting behind a tree in the scene at the end of Part 4 where the Doctor and Nyssa talk about landing the TARDIS. Davison and Sarah Sutton kept acting, and the producers kept the shot, deciding it was useful anyway: it would show the ill effects on Adric's health from being under the Master's control.

The freshly-regenerated Fifth Doctor wanders around his TARDIS with some regeneration amnesia, peeking into rooms and unraveling his scarf. The TARDIS is kind enough to hand her new Doctor a crickety outfit and a cricket room. Tegan just met the Doctor hours ago, and (though she took the whole new-body thing surprisingly calmly) even ''she'' realizes that he's gone batty. They get him into the Zero Room [[note]]which would be a great name for a nightclub[[/note]], but he's only just stretched out (three feet above the ground) and closed his weary eyes when the TARDIS' Cloister Bell alarm starts up. This is annoying enough for us humans when we're tired from a hard day slinging data and just need a good night's sleep before an important meeting in the morning; imagine how much it must suck if you're tired from saving the world and ''dying'' and being born again, plus the alarm isn't for an 8 AM meeting but an urgent warning that your spacetimeship is headed into the Big Bang.

The freshly-regenerated Fifth Doctor wanders around his TARDIS with some regeneration amnesia, briefly and randomly adopting mannerisms from his past selves, constantly mistaking Adric for past companions, peeking into rooms and unraveling his scarf.
