* AbusiveParents: While sleeping in the TARDIS, Peri has a [[BadDreams nightmare]] about her stepfather, begging him "I-I'm sorry Howard. I didn't mean it. No Howard, p-please don't leave me alone! Do-don't turn out the lights! HOWWAAAARD!".
** WordOfGod has it that she was just reliving a childhood nightmare of being afraid of the dark, inspired by the author's own kid. The Franchise/DoctorWhoExpandedUniverse, however, took those lines and ran with them, including a reveal that Peri's step father molested her as a child.

Added DiffLines:

* ShutUpHannibal: See the page quote. Especially good as the Master was trying to hypnotize Peri at the time. It is also the only time he ever fails to hypnotize a human being straight out, and no reason for this is ever given. Apart from the fact that she can shout just as loud as he can.

** Peter Davison notes on the DVD's "making of" documentary that Ainley originally tried to underplay the role much more than he does in the finished product. However, the serial's director, Fiona Cumming was known to favour very hammy, over-the-top performances from her actors, and made Ainley turn his performance UpToEleven.
