* AuthorsSavingThrow: The Daleks were killed off at the end of their first story. When it came time to bring them back for a sequel, Creator/TerryNation said: "the trusty TARDIS came along and took me to a point in time before they were exterminated!"



* BuryYourDisabled: The wheelchair-bound Dortmun is killed by the Daleks.
* CanonImmigrant: The look of the Daleks' flying saucers, which first appeared on the DVD release as replacement special effects, and later appeared in the series itself, was originally from the comic strips.



* EarlyInstallmentCharacterDesignDifference: The Daleks' design continues to evolve. Here, they have clunky looking satellite-style disc aerials on the backs of their casings, conceived by the designers as a wireless power supply (the original Daleks had been unable to leave their city as they drew electrical life-support power from the floors).
* EarthThatUsedToBeBetter: In the 22nd century the Daleks occupy the planet for a whole decade.
* EnhancedOnDVD: The DVD release digitally enhances the Dalek spaceship and the Battersea Power Station.



* FantasticRacism / FantasticSlurs: In the 22nd century, the humans who survived the Dalek invasion of Earth call the Daleks "dustbins" as a slur.



* PsychoticSmirk: The Doctor gives one when he knows he's got the Daleks beaten at the end.

%%* VichyEarth* VichyEarth: In the 22nd Centry the Daleks have wiped out 9/10ths of the population with a plague, leaving the strongest as slaves. The Dalek Supreme rules the planet from his unlikely capital in Bedfordshire. While there are only a small number of Daleks overseeing proceedings, the population is kept under control by the Robomen who are unwillingly made to do their bidding via intrusive cranial cybernetics.

* TheILoveYouStigma: The Doctor, saying goodbye to his own granddaughter for what he clearly expects to be a long time, gives her a poetic speech about being true to your beliefs. At no point does it include the words "I love you" or "I'm proud of you".

* FakeShemp: William Hartnell was injured during filming of the third part of the serial, and so suddenly passed out without explanation at the start of the fourth (something that tended to happen throughout the Hartnell era, whenever he was unable to appear for whatever reason), with body double Edmund Warwick playing the Doctor in this episode.



* RealLifeWritesThePlot: William Hartnell was injured during filming of episode 3, so episode 4 was rewritten so as to have the Doctor out of commission for the duration and a body double filled in as the unconscious Doctor.

* RuleOfCool / RuleOfScary: The Daleks' master plan is to turn Earth into an enormous spaceship...even though they self-evidently have a invasion fleet that can get them get them anywhere they want. Why? So viewers get to see Daleks gliding around contemporary London.
