NB: This story is commonly also called "100,000 BC", and less commonly called "The Tribe of Gum". "An Unearthly Child" is the title of the first episode (episodes were individually named until season 3) and is applied to the entire first serial through synecdoche.

* FailedASpotCheck: The Coal Hill school nurse has failed to notice that Susan has a body temperature of sixty degrees and [[Recap/DoctorWhoS14E6TheTalonsOfWengChiang a curious double heartbeat]].
** It would be more accurate to say that the fact Time Lords have two hearts wasn't established until later in the series.
* FamilyUnfriendlyViolence: The oft-quoted truism that Doctor Who was originally supposed to be an educational programme for children seems somewhat dubious in light of this story. There are a lot of dark, violent themes and moments, such as the sight of Za's slashed up, bloody chest after an animal attack, the Doctor trying to smash open the head of an injured man and the heroes being trapped in a cave full of broken skulls, foreshadowing their possible fate. The most shocking part is a lot more subtle however, as Ian and Barbara's attempt to get a policeman, and in particular their fear of what the Doctor might be doing to Susan in the mysterious blue box imply that they (wrongly) fear he may be molesting her.
