* ShipSinking: Attempted and subverted. Clara doesn't believe the Doctor would ''ever'' fall in love with her, and even if he did, he would rather die than admit it. As Twelve would prove, one should take this with a grain of salt, not to mention her earlier comments on the subject.

* TheBusCameBack: The proper return of the Mondasian Cybermen since 1988. [[note]]By WordOfGod, the technology is a merger of Cybus and Mondas-based Cybermen, though the story uses a lot of elements and inspirations from the 1960s incarnations, and appears to follow the Cyber-Wars mentioned in later, but pre-Cybus, seasons[[/note]] Previous appearances going back to [[Recap/DoctorWhoS31E12ThePandoricaOpens "The Pandorica Opens"]] have been confirmed to be Mondasian Cybermen by WordOfGod, but the costumes weren't updated (or just had the Cybus logo removed). These ones have updated costumes.

** Mr. Webley's museum of oddities likewise contains several [[invoked]] [[PropRecycling reused props]], including Cybus-brand Cybermen and one of the ventriloquist's dummies from [[Recap/DoctorWhoS32E11TheGodComplex "The God Complex"]], a very familiar vulture from ''Series/TheSarahJaneAdventures'' and [[Recap/TorchwoodS2E1KissKissBangBang that coked-up blowfish]] from ''Series/{{Torchwood}}''.

** Children's minds are used for the Cyber-Planner because their brains have more potential. A similar logic was used by the Daleks in creating their [[Recap/DoctorWhoS25E1RemembranceOfTheDaleks Battle Computer Interface]]. The Krillitanes used the same principle in [[Recap/DoctorWhoS28E3SchoolReunion "School Reunion"]].

** The Creator/BigFinish Eighth Doctor audio drama "The Silver Turk" also features Cybermen playing board games. Both episodes reference the original Mechanical Turk (a supposed chess machine which was actually operated by a person inside). That makes the second direct reference in this season to an Eighth Doctor audio from that specific storyline, after [[Recap/DoctorWhoS33E9Hide "Hide"]] name-checked the story "The Witch from the Well" (which comes directly after "The Silver Turk").

* SplitPersonalityMakeover: There is no physical tell-tale indicating whether Mr Clever or the Doctor is in control, apart from the fact that the camera angle is oriented to the side of his face with or without the Cyberman implants (and Mr Clever ChewingTheScenery even more the Doctor usually does). The camera angle also focuses on the implants-free side when Mr Clever tries pretending to be the Doctor to trick Clara.

The one where the Doctor becomes Skynet.



Hedgewick's World of Wonders is known as the greatest theme park in the universe. The Doctor takes [[Recap/DoctorWhoS33E11TheCrimsonHorror new temporary companions Angie and Artie Maitland]] to the park for a fun day out (he's got a golden ticket and everything), but the TARDIS parks them there a few decades too late and the whole place has been shut down. Instead of the Spacey Zoomer and free ice cream, team TARDIS finds an army platoon that has been sent there (mostly to keep them out of everyone else's way) and a caretaker named Webley. The Doctor runs a BavarianFireDrill and pretends to be a high-up envoy of the emperor, who's been missing for a number of years. He decides to hang out with Webley for a bit just to show the kids a good time.

* AbsenceOfEvidence: Mr Clever notes the Doctor's efforts to remove data on himself from history. He then points out that the Cyberaid can reconstruct who he is from the gaps he's left. The Doctor concedes he'd better do something about that.

Even the uniforms bear a substantial similarity, and they wield laser weapons. As a MythologyGag within a ShoutOut, the Emperor's full name is Emperor Ludens Nimrod Kendrick Cord Longstaff ''the 41st''.

* SmartPeoplePlayChess: The Doctor, Artie, Porridge, and Mr. Clever play chess and all of them are very clever. Artie falls for a Fool's Mate, so he's not as smart as the others, but he's also much younger so cut him some slack.
