* BBCQuarry: An actual quarry was used for scenes set in the quarry. Albeit one on future Earth run by the Daleks.

It's the future -- some point after 2164 -- but our heroes don't know that yet. They've landed the TARDIS in London, and take a while to notice that it's become a post-apocalyptic CrapsackWorld. Susan investigates, and manages to simultaneously twist her ankle and drop half a bridge on the TARDIS, leaving them stuck in place for a while.

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

Added DiffLines:

* StayInTheKitchen: Played with. Barbara and Susan get taken in from wandering around unprotected by [[LaResistance the Resistance against the Daleks]], and their leader presses them on their useful skills. He asks Barbara if she can cook - she says she can get by - and then asks Susan what she does, who replies "[[SnarkBall I eat]]". In response, the leader clarifies that he's not asking for gender-based reasons - the resistance is just currently short on cooks. Susan's sarcasm is confirmed when we later see her cook an apparently delicious rabbit stew from a wild rabbit she hunted and prepared herself.

** The novelized version of the serial comes up with an alternative (and much more plausible) explanation, with the Doctor speculating that there were other Dalek cities on Skaro.
** The BBC's official version of events is that the Daleks on Skaro were Davros' early prototypes and that the invading Daleks left Skaro just before the Thals detonated their nuclear bomb.

* PeopleInRubberSuits: The Slyther, which, curiously, is considered by fans to be the first true "monster" of the series (the first non-humanoid, non-robotic adversary).

Added DiffLines:

* NothingIsScarier: The story opens with a shot of a cyborg committing suicide near a sign that informs us "it is forbidden to dump bodies into the river". The crew spend the episode wondering around, trying to imagine who or what could be responsible for the total collapse of civilisation. Then something comes out of the Thames... with its eye stalk wobbling back and forth and its plunger waving.
