* PutOnABus: Once Dodo is freed from WOTAN's influence, she's removed from the plot. In the second episode.

* PutOnABus: Once Dodo is freed from WOTAN's influence, she's removed from the plot. In the second episode. And in the most perfunctory way possible: the camera just pans right off her onto the Doctor in mid-scene, and she's never seen again; her decision not to return is briefly described second-hand several episodes later.

Dodo, having been hypnotized by WOTAN, decides she's had enough adventure. Since she's back in her own time, she decides to stay there. In one of the lamest departure sequences for any companion, she [[DroppedABridgeOnHim isn't seen after episode two and says goodbye to the Doctor in episode four via a note, delivered by Polly]]. The Doctor leaves, but not before Professor Brett's secretary Polly and able seaman Ben Jackson enter the TARDIS while trying to return a missing TARDIS key to the Doctor.

Added DiffLines:

* EstablishingCharacterMoment: Polly is introduced privately pulling a silly face to make fun of her nagging sexist boss, and quickly turning it into a forced smile before looking around. Ben is introduced moping in a bar, beating up a man who sexually harasses Polly, and then blaming Polly for the assault.

* ForHappiness

to:

* ForHappinessForHappiness: The bartender asks Polly to help cheer up Ben. Polly comments on how reliably she is called on for such measures.



* MasterComputer

to:

* MasterComputerLandmarkingTheHiddenBase: The Post Office Tower serves as the villains' HQ.
* MasterComputer: WOTAN, which is similar to [[Franchise/TheTerminator Skynet]] but, this being The '60s, it consists of a single Master Computer based in the Post Office Tower in London.
* MindRape: Dodo gets hypnotised by WOTAN, necessitating the First Doctor to hypnotise her back to normal. Since Dodo quits afterwards, only giving a second-hand goodbye through Ben and Polly, some fans speculate (especially in light of the scene that went on between the Tenth Doctor and Donna) that the Doctor actually wiped her memory, or else influenced her to leave for her own perceived safety.
