** [[Recap/DoctorWhoS36E5Oxygen Many, many years later]], it was established that the TARDIS ''can'' fly without the fluid link when the Twelfth Doctor claims that it can't as a bluff to keep someone who wants to strand him from tampering with more important bits of the TARDIS.

* AdaptationExpansion: ''Doctor Who in an Exciting Adventure with the Daleks'' (usually shortened to ''Doctor Who and the Daleks''). The first ever novelization, David Whitaker's expansion adds a completely different introduction for Ian, Barbara, and the Doctor; also, there's a metric ton of TARDIS lore in about the third chapter. Another highlight is the appearance of a "king" Dalek in a glass casing, which would not appear until [[Recap/DoctorWhoS22E6RevelationOfTheDaleks Revelation of the Daleks]].

* InnocuouslyImportantEpisode: It was initially written as a space adventure story based on 1950s sci-fi serials, with anti-war themes and some quirky Nazi-like "bug-eyed monsters" as villains. Due to the extreme popularity of aforementioned villains, it is now impossible to watch the story without being aware that this is the Doctor's first encounter with the Daleks.

Added DiffLines:

* UnbuiltTrope: There's an ongoing [[NeverLiveItDown joke]] that Daleks cannot take over the universe because their impractical design means that they can't climb stairs, even though the Daleks everyone remembers can fly. Nevertheless, the very first Dalek serial deals with this restriction seriously not only can they not climb stairs (which is irrelevant, as they use exclusively lifts to get around their city) they die if they ever lose contact with the floor, relying on electricity channelled through metal floors to power them. The TARDIS crew kill a Dalek by blinding it and forcing it to roll over a plastic cloak, cutting off the connection and its life support system, and later the Doctor kills every Dalek in the city by shorting out the power. This story also dealt with Daleks being rather sad, pathetic beings, and even features the main cast making fun of the Daleks' [[EvilSoundsRaspy monotone, distorted voices]], with Susan laughing out loud when she first hears a Dalek attempt to say her name. It also deconstructs the way that the Doctor's inquisitive nature leads him and his companions into danger: The Doctor wants to explore a city on another planet but his companions refuse. He sabotages the TARDIS, forcing them to search the city. They are captured, as usual, but almost die from radiation poisoning as the meter wasn't checked.
