* {{Brownface}}: In-universe, because Salamander's darker skin-tone is the only physical difference between him and the Doctor, so the Doctor has to do this to pull off the impersonation. A relatively justifiable real-life use for Salamander himself, because the Doctor's physical double couldn't have been believably played by anyone other than Patrick Troughton.

* ContinuityNod: In a nod to [[Recap/DoctorWhoS5E2TheAbominableSnowmen The Abominable Snowmen]], the Doctor mishears "disused jetty" as "disused yeti".



* DarkerAndEdgier: The novelisation was infamous for containing swear words and bloody violence.



* JustAStupidAccent: Imagine the Doctor sounding like Speedy Gonzales, but with more of an edge to his voice. Troughton used the same "foreign" voice in other tv series such as The Persuaders.

Added DiffLines:

* RecycledPremise: Both this story and [[Recap/DoctorWhoS5E3TheIceWarriors The Ice Warriros the previous adventure]] have as their premise food shortages caused by overpopulation; in this case, Salamander is exploiting the need for farms to produce multiple crops in a season to amass power.

Added DiffLines:

* BadBadActing: A more layered example, as Salamander and the Doctor take turns impersonating each other. The Doctor's performance starts out slightly wobbly but steadily improves.

Added DiffLines:

* MoralDissonance: The Doctor explains that he was suspicious of Kent from the start because of his open desire to kill Salamander. Which is a bit hypocritical given that Two is one of the most unhesitatingly self-righteous of Doctors when it comes to killing bad guys, and had several speeches in other stories about the need to actively fight the forces of evil.
