* AllThereInTheManual: The novelisation gives more detail on the background of Morton C. Dill: clumsy, always speaking without thinking and not the sort of person many people wish to know, he was nicknamed 'Dill the Pill' in school for being rather hard to take. After explaining to two guards in the Empire State Building about his encounter with the TARDIS crew and the Dalek, he was locked up in the Newman Rehabilitation Clinic in 1967 where he became a permanent resident. The Dalek decides against killing him because it considers it a far worse fate for the human race to allow him to live.
** Also, the Dalek time machines are powered by taranium, the driving element of the plot in "[[Recap/DoctorWhoS3E4TheDaleksMasterPlan The Daleks' Master Plan]]", the following Dalek story. It took the Daleks two decades to gather enough taranium to power their time machines.
** Steven lists the conflict fought against the Draconian Empire and the Third Dalek War as factors which put an end to Earth's expansionist phase. The Draconians were not introduced on TV until "Frontier in Space" during the Third Doctor's era.
** A later novel, Interference - Book One, established that the Dracula and Frankenstein's Monster robots were built by Microsoft, although the company wasn't established until a full ten years after The Chase was broadcast.
* AllThereInTheScript: The three main pillars of the Mechanus forest set were referred to in the script as the "Gubbage Canes".

* HongKongDub: Hartnell voices the android double of the Doctor even in the scenes where the double is played by Warwick. Since the BBC's production methods at the time didn't allow for voices to be dubbed on in post-production, this meant that Hartnell had to record the robot's dialogue ahead of time, and the dialogue was dubbed in live during filming. Since Warwick didn't have any reference point for when the dialogue was being played, the dubbing is less than accurate.

* HongKongDub: In-universe example here. Hartnell voices the android double of the Doctor even in the scenes where the double is played by Warwick. Since the BBC's production methods at the time didn't allow for voices to be dubbed on in post-production, this meant that Hartnell had to record the robot's dialogue ahead of time, and the dialogue was dubbed in live during filming. Since Warwick didn't have any reference point for when the dialogue was being played, the dubbing is less than accurate. This further works to show how faulty the Dalek's technology was.

** To be completely fair, however, this actually further works to show how faulty the Dalek's technology was. Completely unintentionally, of course.
* InfantImmortality: Shockingly averted. A woman who jumped overboard on the ''Mary Celeste'' was carrying a baby.
** This may be a case of small-scale ShownTheirWork. Among the people who disappeared from the ''Mary Celeste'' were the captain's wife and two year-old daughter. Note that the captain yells his wife's historically-correct name (Sarah) before he jumps overboard, presumably in a futile attempt to save his family.

* JustAStupidAccent: Oh God, the "American" accents. Like it was so hard to hire some barely-professional American extras who happened to be in England at the time. You don't have to be a native speaker to realize they would've been better off to ignore the issues of accents altogether. At least the actor playing Creator/AbrahamLincoln could pull off the semivowel R of most American dialects.
