* GrandTheftMe:
** Unwilling variation -- House removes the mind of the TARDIS so he can possess its "body", and since he can't safely destroy said mind he stores it in a human body.
** In a softer and lighter version, the TARDIS initially refers to the Doctor as "My thief", and the scene confirms 48 years of speculation over how the Doctor obtained her in the first place; he says he stole her, but she claims she stole ''him''.

* MoodWhiplash: This episode starts off with funny moments ("I've got mail!") Then it segues into [[Creator/NeilGaiman Gaiman's]] [[SignatureStyle extremely]] scary story. Worst, the action switches several times between the Doctor and Sexy Thing's funny banter, and Amy and Rory getting terrorized by House in the TARDIS.

** The Doctor asks Sexy to send a message to Amy. She asks if Amy's the pretty one. Seconds later, ''Rory'' gets a message. Given how flirty Rory's wife gets with the Doctor at times, it's fitting that the Doctor's wife should turn the tables. And in hindsight, by events in future episodes, Sexy's attraction to Rory is a giant ChekhovsGun.

** In a long-term sense, the fact the TARDIS has at least 17 console rooms archived that the Doctor hasn't himself created yet, suggests she and the Doctor still have many adventures to come (this in itself foreshadowing the [[spoiler: later confirmation that the Eleventh Doctor (who is technically the thirteenth incarnation when one factors in the War Doctor and the "second" Tenth Doctor) is not the final Doctor after all]]).

* CorpseLand: The supposed "junkyard" is actually full of TARDIS corpses and the only people living here already dead.

Added DiffLines:

* TheILoveYouStigma: The series has a longstanding "rule" that the Doctor never says "I love you" to anyone. This does not apply to the TARDIS, however, as these are her final words to the Doctor before her ability to speak directly to him is lost.


Added DiffLines:

* ShipTease: For once, the trope name can be taken literally. One of the first things "Sexy" does is snog the Doctor, several lines of dialogue indicate that the ship's consciousness has developed deep affection for him, and the very last words she utters before she loses the ability to speak directly to the Doctor are, "I love you". That and the fact the episode's title refers to her.

** As in [[Recap/DoctorWhoS19E1Castrovalva "Castrovalva"]], the Doctor jettisons TARDIS rooms to give him a boost.
** The House-possessed TARDIS pulling a MindScrew on the Doctor's companion and the TARDIS appearing in a human form are very similar to events of the Creator/BigFinish audio [[Recap/BigFinishDoctorWho050Zagreus "Zagreus"]], as well as the comic series "The Forgotten".
** The Doctor has travelled to an alternate universe using only a TARDIS console before, in [[Recap/DoctorWhoS7E4Inferno "Inferno"]].

** The Doctor finds that many Time Lords went to the junkyard at the end of the universe. Earlier, in [[Recap/DoctorWhoS29E11Utopia "Utopia"]], Captain Jack Harkness said the end of the universe was the perfect place for a Time Lord to hide from the Time War.

* MacGuffinGirl: Sexy Thing is a zigzagged trope. What House ''really'' wants is her body and so he puts her mind into another body but it is still her mind that the Doctor needs to save the day.

** Inverted in the case of House: body the size of a planet, "but on the inside you're just. so. small!" Once the TARDIS regains control of herself she crushes him like a gnat.
