** The Doctor is reading [[Recap/DoctorWhoS19E5BlackOrchid ''Black Orchid'']] before his argument with Adric.
** Amongst the objects in Adric's room is [[Recap/DoctorWhoS19E4TheVisitation the skull mask worn by the Terileptil Android when it went out in public as the figure of Death]], and [[Recap/DoctorWhoS19E3Kinda one of the many pendants worn by the Kinda tribe 's male members]].


Added DiffLines:

** [[Recap/DoctorWhoS18E5WarriorsGate Adric mentions that Romana is still in E-Space, and could help him if he returned]].


Added DiffLines:

* OohMeAccentsSlipping: James Warwick changes Lt. Scott's accent without narrative cause. There's a clear and inexplicable difference between his work on location, and his later-recorded scenes in the studio. This fact was remarked upon by Janet Fielding and Creator/PeterDavison on the DVD commentary.

* EnhancedOnDVD: The story ends, as we all know by now, with the freighter ship crashing into prehistoric Earth with Adric aboard, killing both him and the dinosaurs on the planet. However, the drama is heavily overshadowed by how the crash scene plays out: the image of Earth used is of modern Earth rather than prehistoric Earth, the freighter is just a still image on the TARDIS monitor, and the "explosion" is just a bunch of Atari-esque pink & white flashing lights. The DVD enhancement changes the image of Earth to (what is generally accepted as) prehistoric Earth, which the new, CGI freighter visibly slams into. The TARDIS's broadcast of the explosion now shows a yellow-white flash over the impact site with a reasonably large shockwave, and the way it plays out delivers the same wham that the writers intended.
** On a slightly related note, the freighter itself and its escape pods are given CGI makeovers as well.


Added DiffLines:

* TemptingFate: The Doctor and Adric get into an argument when Adric demands to go home, but the Doctor says he won't risk taking the TARDIS back into E-Space. At one point, the Doctor tells Adric: "I'm not hanging around while you plot the course to your own destruction!" Then, at the end of Episode Four, Adric gets blown up.

* {{Corpsing}}: Janet Fielding and Sarah Sutton suffered an attack of the giggles while they were filming the final scene, in which their characters were supposed to be grieving for Adric. Fortunately, they eventually managed to regain their composure, enabling the scene to be filmed; the incident is recounted in the "making of" documentary on the DVD.
