* TakenForGranite: The unicorn becomes a statue when the heroes disbelieve in it. The Doctor and Zoe are threatened with this fate when Medusa manifests, but she too reverts to inert marble when the Doctor persuades Zoe that she's just acting out a myth.

* WhatHappenedToTheMouse: We never find out for sure what happened to the Master of the Land of Fiction. However, since The Doctor, Jamie, and Zoe wound up back where they belong (the TARDIS), he presumably returned to his home in the 1920s.

* HistoricalDomainCharacter: The Master identifies himself at one point as the creator of the popular adventure hero "Jack Harkaway". Assuming that the Whoniverse version of Harkaway is the same as the real one, this would identify him as the nineteenth-century pulp writer Samuel Bracebridge Hemyng (1841-1901).

* MaleGaze: [[http://community.livejournal.com/ihasatardis/621849.html Zoe on the revolving TARDIS console]]. From the DVD, we learn that one attempt to film this sequence was brought to a halt by a WardrobeMalfunction.

* NoOntologicalInertia: [[JustifiedTrope Justified]] since the computer maintained the fantasy world. Less justified is the fact that the TARDIS un-explodes after the computer is destroyed.

* ShapeShifterShowdown: The Doctor and the Master do this by proxy. The Master conjures CyranoDeBergerac, the Doctor [[TheThreeMusketeers D'Artagnan]]. Then the Master changes Cyrano to Blackbeard, and the Doctor counters by replacing [=D'Artagnan=] with Lancelot.
