* MagicalNegro: The Doctor is helped out by a black man who serves tea in a cafe while inexplicably offering philosophical insights based on the enslavement of his ancestors.
** The Doctor DID start the philosophical train of thought, however, by commenting on how the demand for sugar started off a long string of events.

ancestors. [[TropesAreTools It's done better than usual, though]], since The Doctor DID start is the one who starts the philosophical train of thought, however, thought by commenting on how the demand for sugar started off a long string of events. Plus, [[TruthInTelevision a lot of people expect that kind of deep and meaningful conversations from cafe workers.]]

* [[StuffBlowingUp Stuff (primarily Daleks) Blowing Up]]: Best serial to watch Daleks getting blown up by the Counter-Measures team, rival Daleks, and Ace, with her BFG and [[BatterUp Hand of Omega-powered baseball bat]].

Added DiffLines:

* WellIntentionedExtremist: The difference between George Ratcliffe and Mike Smith is that Ratcliffe was only after power, while Mike Smith had been led astray from his youth and genuinely believed the Association was acting in Britain's best interests. With Ratcliffe's [[BrokenPedestal pedestal broken]], he might have learned better in time had he not been electrocuted Sith-style by the Daleks' young slave.

* 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.

* TookALevelInBadass: The Daleks, who had been suffering from VillainDecay since [[Recap/DoctorWhoS17E1DestinyOfTheDaleks Destiny of the Daleks]], finally decided to kick ass and take names. However, greater badassery [[Recap/DoctorWhoS27E6Dalek is yet to come...]]

* 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).
