* [[WhatTheHellHero What The Hell, Doctor?]]: Granted the First Doctor wasn't quite as pacifist as most of his successors, but it's still a bit alarming to see him looking delighted and cackling with glee when he realizes he was partly responsible for the burning of Rome. He apparently realizes this later in his life, and [[Recap/DoctorWhoS30E2TheFiresOfPompeii denies having anything to do with the fire]]

* ArtisticLicenseReligion / [[ArtisticLicenseHistory History]]: Tavius is shown clutching a cross pendant, indicating that he is a Christian. However, at the time of Nero, Christians would have used the ichthys as a symbol. The cross, reminiscent of Jesus' torture and death, would have been viewed negatively by early Christians. On the other hand, very few viewers (especially children) are going to recognise the ichthys.

* DidTheyOrDidntThey: Ian and Barbara, alone in the villa. The first episode opens with them lying luxuriously on couches feeding each other grapes, and they later end up mock-wrestling in a way that suggests that they no longer have any sense of mutual personal space.
