* NiceJobBreakingItHero: One for the ages. Had the Doctor not intentionally tampered with the TARDIS so that they'd visit the Dalek City, none of the trouble with the Daleks in future episodes would've ever happened.

* * AllThereInTheManual: According to the BBC Classic Doctor Who website, the Daleks encountered in this story are early prototypes of Davros' experiments, left behind when most of the Daleks went into space after the end of the Thal-Kaled War. This explains both why the Daleks have a mighty space empire later while the Daleks in this story are confined to the city and are all wiped out, and why later Daleks don't have the same weaknesses of needing high levels of radiation to survive and constant static electricity to power their shells.

* AdaptationExpansion: ''Doctor Who in an Exciting Adventure with the Daleks'' (usually shortened to ''Doctor Who and the Daleks''). The [[UrExample 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 "Revelation of the Daleks".

* GilliganCut: In Episode 5, the TARDIS crew has met up with the friendly Thals, and have been urging them to fight against the Daleks for the good of their race. Back in the Dalek city, the Daleks are looking over surveillance photos of the Thal's camp, leading to this cut:
--> '''Dalek:''' It is logical that together they will attack us.
--> Cut to the main Thal looking unhappily at Ian
--> '''Thal:''' No! And that is my final word.
