* CutawayGag: When they drive into an archway, with Ace driving, she states, quite clearly, "So, You drive then!"... A literal split second later, the Doctor is driving. Notable for, unlike [[CommercialSwitcheroo the usual method]], it actually appearing in the novelisation, with Ace actually doing a mental SpitTake at the fact they never stopped.


Added DiffLines:

* CutawayGag: When they drive past a sign, shortly after Ace, who is having trouble driving, states, "You drive then!"... A literal split second later, the Doctor is driving, having not stopped his discussion or anything, the only clue they even did change in the moment being Ace sitting back down. Notable for, unlike [[CommercialSwitcheroo the usual method]], it actually appearing in the novelisation, with Ace actually doing a mental SpitTake at the fact they never stopped.

* UncertainDoom: The Doctor and the last Imperial Dalek both assume that Skaro has been destroyed, and so does Missy [[Recap/DoctorWhoS35E1TheMagiciansApprentice in a]] [[Recap/DoctorWhoS35E2TheWitchsFamiliar later story.]] However, ''Asylum of the Daleks'' has a scene set on Skaro, as does the TV Movie. Whether these are somehow set before Skaro's destruction in this story, or whether the planet wasn't destroyed at all, is unclear (one ExpandedUniverse work suggests the latter).

* EarthShatteringKaboom: Actually, Skaro-Shattering, but it's the same idea. That doesn't prevent Skaro [[Recap/DoctorWhoTVMTheTVMovie from]] [[Recap/DoctorWhoS33E1AsylumOfTheDaleks returning]] [[Recap/DoctorWhoS35E1TheMagiciansApprentice in]][[Recap/DoctorWhoS35E2TheWitchsFamiliar tact]] (although it should be noted that in the final story listed above, Skaro is mentioned to have been destroyed and brought back, leaving its fate unclear). See WhatHappenedToTheMouse for more details.

See WhatHappenedToTheMouse for more details.



* WhatHappenedToTheMouse: Skaro's fate is highly contestable. The original intention here was that the Doctor ''blew up Skaro'' and struck a devastating blow toward them the likes of which would not be seen again until the Last Great Time War. It was a ''huge'' move for the classic series, and that's really saying something- the homeworld of the Daleks just wiped out of existence in the blink of an eye! Apparently, the Daleks were going to fix that in a later story, only the classic series never made it that far and fell into the mosh pit of FixFic. Plus, the choppy special effects used for the scene in question made unclear if the planet was actually destroyed or just exposed to a huge amount of intense heat as its sun was forced to explode.
** A lot of writers who were uneducated regarding the intended plan for the show were hung up on Skaro's destruction and got their wires crossed trying to figure out what that really meant in the grand scheme. It was eventually dealt with, but it took a ''long'' time and a ''lot'' of sorting out to do, not helped by the fact some writers didn't care for the plot point and tried to RetCon it. One rather dubious interpretation is that the Daleks trolled the Doctor into blowing up Antalin, a planet they terraformed into a Skaro-lookalike in case he tried to pull something on the planet-buster scale.
** When the TV movie came out and Skaro was shown intact in the ''opening shot of the movie'', it just made things even worse; that was before it came to light that the movie was going to be a sort of ContinuityReboot which never panned out.
** The inclusion of the Last Great Time War into the mix made this a total clusterfarce when it was stated that one of the things that routinely happened in the Time War was that things that took place at one point in time could suddenly be undone at the drop of a hat. ''Ad infinitum.'' At that point, most people just went with "The Daleks restored Skaro in the Time War and undid the moment of its destruction, and that's why it's back in the movie, so shut up already."
** All in all, the Skaro debacle devolved into a ''mess''. Later episodes in the revival era establish that Skaro is indeed still intact, just ''really'' messed up by what the Doctor did with the Hand of Omega. And finally, the Daleks restore the planet to its former glory.

* AllThereInTheManual: The Novelization was written by Aaronovitch himself, and contains details not explained in the episode, as well as setting up elements that would become important in the [[Literature/DoctorWhoNewAdventures Virgin New Adventures.]]
** The book contains far more detail on the Special Weapons Dalek, also known (in the novelisation) as "the Abomination". In the book, its motives are explored in detail, from its inception and creation as the ultimate weapon, to the surprising fact that the firing of the weapon caused it to mutate, and become self-aware. As a result, it is closely monitored and even "feared" by other Daleks.
** Various Dalek campaigns are mentioned such as the Spiridon Campaign and the Movellan War. Three off screen campaigns are also mentioned in when exploring more indepth detail on the Special Weapons Dalek: Pa Jass-Gutrik, the war of vengeance against the Movellans, Pa Jaski-Thal, the liquidation war against the Thals and Pas Jass-Vortan, the time campaign — the war to end all wars. The Special Weapons Dalek fought in all these wars.
** The Renegade Dalek faction made use of ECM (Electronic Counter-Measure) pods in their defensive positions. These devices locked onto the casings of any Imperial Daleks who came into range and infiltrated their systems, sabotaging the life-support software so the Kaled mutant within drowned in its own nutrient fluid.
** The Doctor mentions the Movellan War to Ace, Rachel and Allison. The Movellan virus apparently fragmented the Daleks and left them in isolated factions.
** Skaro's destruction is described with full in depth detail. Several details regarding Skaro are mentioned including one thousand million Daleks, a Dalek city, rock leopards in the mountains, seas boiling, the sky turning white and the atmosphere being blown into space. There is also mention of a Dalek city on Skaro known as Mensvat Esc-Dalek.
** The vicar is named Reverend Parkinson and was blinded in a gas attack in UsefulNotes/WorldWarOne.



* EldritchAbomination: The Special Weapons Dalek, in the Novelization, is considered one by the other Daleks, who are all thoroughly terrified of him.



* EvenEvilHasStandards:
** In the novelization, it's explained that the Daleks, [[OmnicidalManiac Omnicidal Maniacs]] one and all, really aren't comfortable with the Special Weapons Dalek, because they think that, by Dalek standards, it's a dangerous insane killer.
** The Doctor tells Ace that even the Daleks wouldn't create a paradox that would damage the timeline.

* NoSwastikas: Ratcliffe and his groupies are hinted to be a miniature version of the National Front or some other nativist movement, and it's even more strongly implied in the novelization, where he mentions protesting against Jews and blacks.

* TheQuisling: In the novelization, it's seen that the Daleks themselves use the term to refer to Dalek allies, who see themselves as LesCollaborateurs.

Despite being aired in the show's 25th anniversary year and featuring many links to ''Series/DoctorWho'''s very first serial, "[[Recap/DoctorWhoS1E1AnUnearthlyChild An Unearthly Child]]", this is ''not'' the "official" 25th anniversary special. That was "[[Recap/DoctorWhoS25E3SilverNemesis Silver Nemesis]]", the first episode of which aired on the actual anniversary. Nevertheless, many consider this serial to be the ''true'' anniversary episode.
