** The juggling is an aversion - he's trying to learn to juggle from a book, and doesn't do it very well. This was because the writer and director had assumed that [=McCoy=] could juggle because of his background in physical comedy and mime, and only discovered at the last minute that he couldn't.

* ContinuityNod: While Ace's looking for her rucksack in the TARDIS wardrobe, she throws the Fifth Doctor's coat to the floor and emerges a while later, wearing the Fourth Doctor's scarf. Mel's blue-and-white polka dot blouse from "[[{{Recap/DoctorWhoS24E2ParadiseTowers}} Paradise Towers]]" is also visible.
** One so subtle people don't usually notice until it's pointed out: the Captain's double-headed coins appear to depict an [[{{Recap/DoctorWhoS9E2TheCurseOfPeladon}} Alpha]] [[{{Recap/DoctorWhoS11E4TheMonsterOfPeladon}} Centaurian]].

** The whole serial is a massive Take That. All the performers at the Psychic Circus are paraded in front of [[Creator/MichaelGrade cold, unfeeling cosmic figures with a penchant for destroying anyone who fails to entertain them]]. The Doctor does simple tricks to bide for time, but once he gets a chance to destroy the Gods of Ragnarok, he takes a bow and casually strolls out of the exploding circus, showing up all the other performers and proving once again why he's a walking Crowning Moment of Awesome. It ain't called '''Greatest Show in the Galaxy''' for nothing. Sadly, the show's newfound confidence (and storytelling quality) would be cut short, as under a year later, it would be canceled until 2005.
