Added DiffLines:

* AllThereInTheScript: Although the dialogue in which he gives the information is inaudible, the script (or lip-reading his initial message) makes it clear that the White Guardian's mission is for the Doctor to stop Wrack winning the race, which would have devastating consequences for the whole universe.

* BlueAndOrangeMorality: the Eternals, especially Striker and Marriner, simply do not understand human/Time Lord morality. Wrack is a bit more of a clearcut villain, but still has shades of this

* CoolShip: the whole race idea is built on this trope. Admittedly, it ''is'' pretty awesome.

to:

* CompleteImmortality: The Eternals dwelt in the domain of Eternity rather than the smaller one of Time. This meant they were unaffected by Time and thus unaging. Another factor is that Eternals cannot be destroyed, only transferred back to Eternity. However, in the ''Magazine/DoctorWhoMagazine'' comic ''Uninvited Guest'', the Seventh Doctor might have found a loophole.

* EldritchAbomination: The Eternals exist outside of time and space in eternity, have great RealityWarper powers and they are to ''Time Lords'' what Time Lords are to other races.



* SwitchingPOV: switches with the doctor, Tegan and Turlough

Added DiffLines:

* {{Telepathy}}: The Eternals can use telepathy and create objects from the memories of Ephemerals, but their powers were not limitless and they could not read minds from great distance or from strong minds (though Adrenaline from the mind they're accessing helps greatly).

** The consistent tension between Tegan and Marriner is told from both points of view: he views her as fascinating, but she sees his fascination with her as physically (and sexually) threatening, and makes her discomfort VERY clear to him (because she is Tegan, and she does not stand for that sort of behavior). He is often shot as though he physically looms over her, driving the point home. Marriner is deeply puzzled by Teganís fear, which emphasizes his alien nature (and his Eternal privilege).

This story marked the final televised appearance of the Black and White Guardians and their [[NiceHat ducky hats]], though a character intriguingly similar to the Black Guardian -- though minus the hat, and identified as "the Trickster" -- turns up in ''Series/TheSarahJaneAdventures''. The Guardians, of course, return in the DoctorWhoExpandedUniverse, including AudioPlay/BigFinishDoctorWho.
