* PersonalEffectsReveal: Apparently Adric was quite a magpie, as his old room is chock-full of [[ContinuityNod Continuity Nods]] including his pirate outfit from "Black Orchid" and a double-helix necklace from "Kinda."

* RealitySubtext: Sarah Sutton obviously left at the same time as Nyssa, and it was ''not'' her choice. Nyssa's tears when saying goodbye to Tegan are real.

Added DiffLines:
* BlandNameProduct: Unwittingly inverted; the announcer aboard the ship was credited as "Tannoy Voice," which unbeknownst to the production team is actually a trademark of the Tannoy company rather than a generic term for a PA system, resulting in the BBC being threatened with legal action.

The Doctor, Tegan, Nyssa, and Turlough visit the exact center of the universe[[note]]How they measured this is anyone's guess, as it's like trying to find the center of a sphere's surface area; presumably Time Lords can see into one or more dimensions that make it possible[[/note]], and find Terminus, a derelict old spaceship that's being used as a colony for the victims of the fatal Lazar's Disease. Which Nyssa has just been infected with. D'oh. She takes off her skirt[[note]]The script half-heartedly justifies it as "Nyssa feeling feverish", but even actor Sarah Sutton had it pegged as FanService[[/note]] and proceeds to be taken into the custody of Terminus' employees, the Vanir. They leave her with the other Lazars until it's her turn to be treated by the Garm, a monster that looks like some sort of bulky wolfman. There's a couple of SpacePirates aboard, too, so that ought to be good for a laugh. Especially since one of them has gigantic EightiesHair that nearly completely fills her standard-issue bubble-shaped space helmet. They're just there to give the Doctor someone to talk to, because Tegan and Turlough are stuck crawling through ventilation shafts and avoiding the ship's sterilization procedures. Oh, and the old space hulk was responsible for creating the universe (one of its fuel pods fell back in time and kicked off the Big Bang), and it's now in danger of ''destroying'' it. Only by pulling a really heavy switch can the process be stopped. Nobody tell the Master about this thing, OK?

* AnyoneCanDie: Strangely enough, averted. despite the grim tone of the story and its themes of disease and death, it is the only story from season 20 in which no-one dies.

Per Ask The Tropers, "[a] recap page is, by design, going to be a massive spoiler", and spoiler font on them is "pointless and ugly" (though that probably refers more to the paragraphs than the examples).
* PunchClockVillain: the Vanir are all enslaved criminals who only are obstacles to the Doctor and Co. because they think they'll keep them from getting their supply of hydromel. [[spoiler: when Nyssa says she can synthesize it, they gladly say they'll work for her]]

* WithholdingTheCure: Terminus Incorporated pays the Vanir in hydromel, which keeps them immune to Lazar's Disease and incidentally, bound to working on Terminus. [[spoiler: after examining the stuff, Nyssa announces she can synthesize it, freeing the Vanir from the control of the company]]
