!Tropes
* 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.

* ObviousStuntDouble: Creator/WilliamHartnell's usual stunt double plays the Doctor's robot duplicate. With his face clearly visible on screen for literally minutes. And, inexplicably, in scenes where only one actor had to be around. He does look a lot like Hartnell, but not so much that they're not readily distinguishable.

* Flynning: The Doctor and the Robo-Doctor "duel" with their brolleys (umbrellas). Basically doing a SlapFight.

The one where a Dalek gets sand in its britches. Or lack thereof.

* NewspaperDating: Ian & Barbara find out they’re (near enough) home by checking the windscreen of the nearest parked car to find its tax disc expires on New Year’s Eve 1965. (This is referenced in ''Film/AnAdventureInSpaceAndTime'' when the audience is shown that it is 1966 by displaying a car's tax disc.)

* ALittleSomethingWeCallRockAndRoll: Subverted. From the way the others had been describing them, Vicki (who is from TheFuture) is surprised to hear Music/TheBeatles playing what she considers to be "classical music".

* BriefAccentImitation: Ian impersonates a Dalek to freak Barbara out.

** Also, the fake Doctor telling Ian to kill the duplicate with a rock - like the Doctor almost did in on the very first serial.
