Added DiffLines:

* FamilyUnfriendlyDeath: The Daleks activate a time-altering superweapon which almost kills the Doctor, and ages Sara from a beautiful young woman into an old woman, then into a mummified corpse, a skeleton, and then to dust. Steven then puts the weapon into reverse, which causes the Daleks to de-age into foetuses, which eject from their cases, flop about and die. The Doctor even picks up one of these foetuses and laughs about how great it is that he's wiped out every Dalek on the planet, leading to a WhatTheHellHero moment from Steven.

* KarmaHoudini: Mavic Chen's advisor, Karlton. He conspired with Chen to betray humanity to the Daleks, but nothing happens to him.

* AllThereInTheManual: In the novelisation, the police officers are named Welland, Blessed, Ellis and Windsor after the actors from ''Series/ZCars'', a reference to the fact the ''The Feast of Steven'' was supposed to be a crossover.



** The novelisation of the story makes this a big part of her character. She is haunted by nightmares of her brother's final moments and continually beats herself up over the fact that she blindly believed Mavic Chen when he said that Bret was a traitor. While she does genuinely want to stop the Daleks and Mavic Chen from destroying the universe, a major secondary reason is that she doesn't want the death of Bret to be in vain.



** The novelisation adds a scene where Karlton is found out and arrested thanks to Marc Cory's message that the Doctor gave to Bret Vyon.



** The expanded universe novels subsequently did an AuthorsSavingThrow and established a gap of several months between episodes six and eight, so Sara presumably had time to acclimatise herself to the Doctor's lifestyle.
