* GenreSavvy: Like many viewers, Amy immediately realizes that the death of the Doctor she witnessed in [[Recap/DoctorWhoS32E1TheImpossibleAstronaut "The Impossible Astronaut"]] could have been the Ganger Doctor being killed instead. The Doctor is understandably rather cross with her for jumping to this conclusion.



* RedHerring: The gangers immediately led [[GenreSavvy both Amy and the viewers]] to the hypothesis that the Doctor who died in "The Impossible Astronaut" was a ganger.

* NotSoDifferent: The point of the Aesop is that the Grangers are not different at all from their Human counterparts. The Doctor and his Granger prove this with the TwinSwitch they pull on Amy.

* ReasonableAuthorityFigure: Cleaves, responsible for the whole mess by murdering Granger Buzz, becomes one in the end. At the press conference she is accepted as "boss" by one of the remaining Grangers after saying they would confront the matter "side-by-side".

** Rory appears to understand why the Doctor is telling him to step away from Amy, which would make sense for someone who was himself a duplicate.

* BatmanGambit: By the Doctor, as usual, by banking on the Gangers trying to his Ganger, he shames them into acting human.

* HiveMind: The two Doctors manage to act as if they were still occupying the same skull. Which, in a way, they are. Both being essentially exactly the same person, it would make sense that they would know exactly what the other was thinking. And the fact that Time Lords are telepathic couldn't have hurt, either.

** The climax basically revolvez around the poetic irony that while the other Gangers either die heroically (and thus assist in proving their species "humanity" to their originals) or actually take over the lives of dead originals as desired (albeit under far more noble terms), Ganger Jennifer has come to find such actions "weaknesses" and dies a literal inhuman monster willing to kill even her own out of spite.

* IdiotBall: Ganger Jennifer, after apparently being proven human, inexplicably uses Rory's hand-print instead of her own to access the factory controls, and the computer says loudly, "Human identity verified". Rory doesn't notice anything odd about this.
