* RealLifeWritesThePlot: The guy from the previous episode who explained about everyone clearing out due to GenreSavvy returns, and is revealed as Wilfred Mott, Donna's grandfather. He ''wasn't'' originally planned to be Donna's granddad, but when Howard Attfield, the actor who played Donna's father, died, Wilf was brought back, and the Geoff Noble scenes re-done with him. Howard Attfield's scenes as Geoff Noble are included as an extra on the DVD set with a nice intro from RTD.

Before leaving, Donna gives a message to a strange woman. The woman turns around . . . to reveal none other than Rose Tyler, who mysteriously vanishes.

* EstablishingCharacterMoment: For anyone who missed or forgot her appearance back in [[Recap/DoctorWho2006CSTheRunawayBride "The Runaway Bride"]], Sylvia Noble first shows up treating Donna like a wayward teenager, then spends a good amount of time (suggested to be longer than shown) nagging Donna about her choices in life. [[SarcasmMode What a great mother she is.]]

* MissedHimByThatMuch: Played for laughs, with a certain degree of irony. Donna and the Doctor both sneak into the same office building through different entrances (using the same "health and safety" cover story) ''twice'', crash the same product presentation (Donna sits in the actual audience and looks like a journalist, while the Doctor watches in the projection booth), and both creatively acquire a list of customers from two office workers with cubicles literally three metres away -- and who print out the lists on the same networked printer -- without ever seeing each other. Later, we have Donna parking her car and walking away, and mere moments later the TARDIS parks right down the alley; both running down intersecting streets and stopping just short of the actual intersection; and so forth. Donna even lampshades the trope by listing off a number of bizarre events that she investigated, believing the Doctor to have been involved, but dismisses the one where the ''Titanic'' almost crashed into Buckingham Palace . . . which was the only one that the Doctor was ''actually present for''.

** It's used dramatically at one point, as the Doctor begins one of his usual technobabble explanations . . . then realises he's speaking to an empty TARDIS. He lets the technobabble trail off and simply stares at the console.

* MonsterIsAMommy: Technically Miss Foster is a ''foster mother''. Her employers are the real parents.
* MoralityChain: In her last appearance, Donna said that the Doctor "needs someone to stop him". She notes that Martha has been fulfilling that role until recently, and the Doctor himself admits that he needs "a mate".

* PunctuatedForEmphasis: Probably one of the only silent examples of this trope to date thanks to two panes of glass and a room separating Donna and the Doctor and the amazing physical acting skills of one Creator/CatherineTate. She mimes a BigOMG that is also the aforementioned trope.
