* ContinuityNod: As Barbra is chewing out the Doctor, she mentions the events of the previous serials.

to:

** However, considering the Doctor concedes that the TARDIS ''does'' possess a "machine intelligence" due to its many computers, and it's eventually revealed that [[spoiler:the TARDIS ''is'' communicating with the group]], this episode [[FridgeBrilliance can easily be read as the moment where the Doctor realized just how intelligent the TARDIS really is]]. It's still [[EarlyInstallmentWeirdness a pretty far cry]] from the TARDIS having "a heart and soul" that [[DoctorWhoS27E11BoomTown manifests]] [[DoctorWhoS27E13ThePartingOfTheWays as glowy yellow light]] and [[DoctorWhoS32E4TheDoctorsWife is sentient enough to manifest in humanoid form]], though.

One of ''Doctor Who''[='s=] few {{Bottle Episode}}s, "The Edge of Destruction" (aka "Inside the Spaceship") is a two-part oddity wedged between two longer stories. Originally, the show was confirmed for four episodes (the opening story) to be reviewed up... then it was increased to 13, two more than "The Daleks" allowed for. Worse, there was no money for sets or extras. Although it's a filler episode, the story triggers some very important CharacterDevelopment for the Doctor and his friendship with Barbara.

* WhatTheHellHero: Delivered by Barbara to the Doctor about his awful behaviour.

* WhatTheHellHero: Delivered by Barbara Wright gets a great one. The Doctor is threatening to throw her and Ian out of the TARDIS, ''into empty space'', and she tells him he has no right to threaten them as he owes his life to the Doctor about his awful behaviour.two of them several times over already.

* BottleEpisode: The entire story takes place in the TARDIS and its functions are shutting down, so a minimalist thing. The production crew likely needed bottle episode at this point due to problems with the first two serials, including the first episode of each needing to be redone due to problems.

** This episode is a major stepping stone in having the Doctor's personality be more like what we know today rather than the {{Jerkass}}ery seen previously.
