* MoodWhiplash: The story ends with the darkest sequence of events in the entire series thus far. The Doctor forcibly transports his companion Steven to 1960s London to escape an impending 17th Century genocide he'd been powerless to prevent, abandoning Steven's TemporaryLoveInterest Anne (a member of the group being massacred). He [[WhatTheHellHero rages at the Doctor about how amoral he is]] and [[ScrewThisImOutOfHere storms out of the TARDIS]], leaving the Doctor behind to perform a {{Soliloquy}} about how everyone leaves him and [[DespairEventHorizon he has no control and nowhere to go]]. This is suddenly interrupted by a CloudCuckooLander ManicPixieDreamGirl named Dodo accidentally walking in on him, deciding to travel with him in about two minutes of conversation, and then Steven returning with no explanation to suggest that Dodo might be one of Anne's descendants.
