* BadBoss: Stotz is awful to his gunrunner underlings, holding a knife to one's throat and almost force-feeds him a suicide pill. Later he kills them after they refuse to go along with his scheme (which he was [[YouHaveOutlivedYourUsefulness planning to do anyway]]).

* NoodleIncident: For the entirety of his tenure, the Fifth Doctor wears a stalk of celery on his left lapel, pinning it on in "[[Recap/DoctorWhoS19E1Castrovalva Castrovalva]]". In his final serial, we learn this incarnation suffers allergies from Praxis gasses in star systems. If he comes in range of these gases, the celery turns purple and he eats its to (presumably) act as an immunity booster to the allergens. However, we never see this happen on screen, because this was a last minute explanation written in to justify his habit of pinning the celery to his clothing.

** An AlternateCharacterInterpretation raised by the novelisation is that the Doctor actually is on the verge of final, irreversible death until he sees the Master, which is what inspires him to regenerate and live -- the refusal to let the Master (and by extension his enemies / the evil he opposes in general) have the last laugh.



** There's also the man Morgus sends out to sabotage something, who's never seen again, though knowing Morgus he was probably killed to tie up loose ends. The [[Literature/DoctorWhoNovelisations novelisation]] does indeed make a point of having Morgus make an order to have that guy taken care of.

** BittersweetEnding: The spectrox is still there, as it was only Jek's androids who were preventing access to it. And it's only Morgus who has collapsed, as the Presidium will presumably just elect a new President, while Morgus secretary has control of his industrial empire (the more things change, etc). However a pointless war has ended and some villains received their comeuppance, so it's not a total loss.

* BadassBoast: "I'm not going to let you stop me now!" Doubly badass, as the scene subtly implies the Doctor is saying it to both Stotz (who's trying to retake control of the shuttle from him) and ''himself'', as his regeneration process seemingly begins.

** This proves Morgus final downfall, when he tries to steal Jek's entire supply of Spectrox (admittedly Morgus hadn't got much choice by that point, having lost all his power and money). He fails to realise that Jek hates him so much he'd give his own life to kill Morgus.
