This isn't in-universe, unless the Robot Doctor really is changing from looking and sounding exactly like Hartnell to looking vaguely like him and speaking with a terrible dubbing job
* 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," is both natter AND wordcruft. It's also a Justifying Edit. Three strikes!

Since Warwick didn't have any reference point for when the dialogue was being played, the dubbing is less than accurate. ** 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.

* SanDimasTime: The TARDIS and the Dalek time machine always arrive in the right order, despite the fact they travel through time. And Ian and Barbara arrive in London two years after they left, after having traveled with the Doctor for two years.

Too much bitching to salvage.
* 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.

* ClumsyCopyrightCensorship: The Region 1 DVD release has two minutes cut from Episode 1 in order to avoid paying for the rights to include a short scene with the Beatles. Thankfully, the episode is uncut in Region 2.

After the Daleks all die, Ian and Barbara decide to use the rather more reliable Dalek time machine to get home to 1960s London. The Doctor is very offended by their decision, but Vicki convinces him to help his friends regardless. The two teachers make it back home (albeit two years after they left), blow up the Dalek ship and proceed to traipse about London, playing with pidgeons and statues and police boxes, overjoyed.
