*** To be fair, the Doctor does comment that he had reviewed the evidence privately before submitting it to the trial, you'd think he would've noticed then that it showed him committing genocide. And he also repeatedly claims the evidence has been tampered with - maybe the original untampered version showed him stopping the Vervoids non-lethally, but they died in the process anyway.

* KangarooCourt: Let's face it -- genocide or not, when the prosecutor is allowed to throw in new charges midway through a trial at what is basically a whim, it's a sign of a fairly dodgy legal proceeding. The novelization at least shows that the Valeyard can't do this unilaterally and that the Inquisitor has to okay the new charge... which, unfortunately for the Doctor, she readily does.

** Late in the story, Lasky decides that she can talk the Vervoids into a peaceful surrender, despite the fact that they have slaughtered almost all of the crew and passengers by this point. She fails dismally, and ends up as part of the Vervoids' human compost heap.

She fails dismally, and ends up as part of the Vervoids' human compost heap. She does at least succeed in the secondary aim of distracting them long enough to enable the Doctor and Mel to get past.

** The Doctor talks at length about how Hallett was a brilliant investigator with a mind quite unlike anyone else of his era. Yet all we see him do is act needlessly rude towards an old man, send a distress call to the Doctor, dress up like a Mogarian, and then die after drinking some poisoned tea.

And why the hell did he use his real name on Stella Stora?

* TimeyWimeyBall: So... ''does'' the Doctor remember the trial when this happens, and is just going through the motions [[JerkAss for no reason]]? Or does he have amnesia? Or will it happen different, rendering this entire episode pointless?

* OneSteveLimit: A revealing aversion - the ship is named Hyperion, the same as the ship from "[[Recap/DoctorWhoS9EETheMutants The Mutants]]". This appears trivial - you can't expect creators in 1986 to remember trivial details from 1972 - but makes a lot of sense if you know BNF 'continuity advisor' Ian Levine's first ever script tweak was to reject the name Hyperion for the ship in "[[Recap/DoctorWhoS18E5StateOfDecay State of Decay]]" on the grounds of this trope. Levine had a fight with Creator/JohnNathanTurner over the casting of Bonnie Langford and quit, at exactly the same time this story was being produced. From this we can surmise that the aversion was intended as a TakeThat to Levine. As an extra hint, the ship was specifically Hyperion III: in other words, the third Hyperion.
