* SinisterSentientSun: The Sun of the Torajii system, which has a mind of it's own and tries to pull a spaceship into it and destroy it. [[spoiler:Subverted, as it doesn't try to destroy the spaceship for malicious purposes, but because it's crew had stolen it's core, and it wanted it back.]]

The only way to save the ship is to pass through a security system, which the crew inconveniently programmed while they were drunk, and decided that it would be a good idea to make it a series of obscure trivia questions. It's like the Pub Quiz from Hell. Martha phones her mum, her own VoiceWithAnInternetConnection, and gets some answers . . . unaware that Mrs. Jones' phone is being tapped by the mysterious people from [[Recap/DoctorWhoS29E6TheLazarusExperiment "The Lazarus Experiment"]], the ones with sinister music cues; they are revealed to be government agents working for Mr. Saxon.

Before Martha and the other guy make it to the finish, though, another crew member gets infected with the mysterious burning illness and corners Martha and another crew member in an escape pod. The Doctor confronts the infected crew member who passes him by and leaves the area. The Doctor rushes to the escape pod controls but it is too late, the escape pod has already been released. Martha and the crewman are falling into the sun, and the escape pod retrieval controls are on the outside of the ship . . . Fat lot of good they'll do there.

* ConvectionSchmonvection: As per [[Recap/DoctorWhoS27E2TheEndOfTheWorld "The End of the World"]], the one thing that stops everyone aboard from getting fried is heat shields.

* {{Leitmotif}}: The aforementioned "The Master Vainglorious", which foreshadows the oncoming Saxon revelation. Also "All the Strange, Strange Creatures", the main action theme of Series 3, culminates in this episode; seeing as how it's one of the most dangerous adventures of the season. [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9ejiGU_3rmc The synth beat and howling choir simply own the last third of the episode]].
