* AdolfHitlarious: The Führer appears as a blustering ButtMonkey who, almost as soon as we meet him, gets punched in the face, stuffed in a cupboard, and forgotten about. So much for Hitler!

* OutOfCharacerMoment: The Doctor explains "she's been brainwashed, plus, she's a woman!" when claiming that River Song is trying to kill him right after trying to marry him, and then pleads to be given some leeway for his comments because he's just been poisoned. It's a line [[SocietyMarchesOn right out of the Troughton era]] which makes no sense in context, since the Doctor wasn't raised in and has never been culturally assimilated into a sexist society, so he wouldn't fall back on stereotypes even in a moment of extreme stress.

The Teselecta, still operating from inside the robot, are freaking out. They recognise the Time Lord energy, the TARDIS and the person standing before them. One of history's greatest criminals. No, not the Doctor, but his murderer: River Song. While trying to capture the minor criminal Adolf Hitler, they stumbled on Gallifrey's Most Wanted.

The Doctor's dying in the TARDIS, and asks for a voice interface. The voice interface hologram shows his own body. He'd prefer to see [[TheWoobie someone he likes]] while he's dying. Not Rose -- guilt. Or Martha -- still guilt. Or Donna -- more guilt. There has to be someone in the universe that he hasn't "messed up". The voice interface finally settles on an image of Amelia Pond, while she was young and he was a story. He clings to the image and shows Amelia great affection. The interface keeps reminding him that it's not Amelia. His system has been contaminated by the poison of the Judas Tree, his regeneration is disabled and there's no cure. He will be dead in thirty-two minutes. He'll be fine for thirty-one, and then dead one minute later. The Doctor loses hope, but then he is inspired by the sweet memory of fish fingers and custard.

This finally gets Melody to do a tentative HeelFaceTurn. She pilots the TARDIS, materialising it on board the Teselecta around Rory and Amy, saving them from the antibodies. She's able to fly it instantly -- because the TARDIS is her second mother. This she did not know, and she's appropriately shocked by the revelation.

* BlatantLies: This is the episode where we find out that the "temporal grace" system in the TARDIS (from the classic series) that is supposed to keep weapons from functioning doesn't exist, at least not any more. 11 admits that it was a "clever lie" all along. Rule #1, the Doctor lies.
