* AlternativeCalendar: Set in the far-future year [[AlternateCalendar "5.5/Apple/26"]]. A year with a number so large that it has been abbreviated through various forms of semantics. The Doctor helpfully translates that this means it's around the year Five Billion.

* AmbiguousTimePeriod: Set in the far-future year [[AlternateCalendar "5.5/Apple/26"]]. A year with a number so large that it has been abbreviated through various forms of semantics. This system of dating wouldn't be kept; sequels to this episode imply it took place in the year 5 billion.

* AmbiguousTimePeriod: Set in IronicEcho: As The Doctor and Rose talk about the far-future year [[AlternateCalendar "5.5/Apple/26"]]. A year with a number so large that it has been abbreviated through various forms of semantics. This system of dating wouldn't be kept; sequels people coming to this episode imply it took place in the year 5 billion.visit Satellite One, Rose asks if he means people or aliens, to which he responds "depends how you mean people". Later, when Cassandra is caught by The Doctor, he angrily states people have died. Cassandra just blithely shoots back "that depends how you mean people".

Added DiffLines:
* MyGodWhatHaveIDone: After playing it up around the bizarre guests and conventions of the Platform, the Doctor clearly realises he might have been a bit hasty in bringing Rose five billion years to the future when he sees her stagger out of the room on the verge of a culture shock breakdown.

Added DiffLines:
* WhatTheHellHero: The Doctor isn't impressed by Rose's slightly xenophobic reactions to the aliens on the Platform ("Good thing I didn't take you to the DeepSouth."). Rose, in turn, isn't particularly pleased to learn that the TARDIS's TranslationConvention circuits rearrange how her mind works without her knowledge or consent -- particularly since the Doctor chose to make snide remarks about her culture shock instead of telling her this ("No, you were too busy making cheap shots about the Deep South!").

The Doctor and Jabe rush to find the button to reset the computer, restoring the safety; the space station was manned entirely by computers, computers the spiders compromised, and the makers of the "unsinkable" space station didn't account for this. Jabe holds down the switch to slow the deadly pathway of fans so the Doctor can reach it. Unfortunately, she's made of wood, so she catches fire and dies, and the fans start moving quicker just as the Doctor's at the last one. The Doctor, concentrating, passes through and resets the computer, ordering it to reactivate the shields at the point of the Earth's destruction. Cassandra is returned thanks to the Doctor's ability to reverse the teleport with the feed that allowed her to teleport through the heat. As she begins to dry out, She pleads The Doctor to "moisturize her", but he lets her die, saying "Everything has an end."

* {{Troll}}: The aforementioned line stating religion is not allowed on Platform One is one of those controversial moments where Creator/RussellTDavies, the showrunner at the time, [[AuthorFilibuster professed his own beliefs in the narratives]] (or lack thereof). [[Recap/DoctorWhoS27E4AliensOfLondon Two episodes later]], he would add another controversial line that used the word "gay" in derogatory manner. And he would later pull a similar stunt in ''[[Recap/TorchwoodS3E1DayOne Torchwood]]'' involving a religious woman's suicide after she thought "science had won".
