* WhatHappenedToTheMouse: Whatever became of Rutledge?

Added DiffLines:

* SeriesContinuityError: The animated first episode depicts Zoe wearing the clothes that she later gets from Isobel, when she should be still wearing her glittery catsuit from "The Mind Robber". This may have been an error, or may have been due to a desire not to have to create a second character model.

* {{Expy}}: Professor Watkins and his niece Isobel, the SuspiciouslySimilarSubstitutes written in when the actors of [[Recap/DoctorWhoS5E2TheAbominableSnowmen Professor Travers]] and his [[Recap/DoctorWhoS5E5TheWebOfFear daughter Anne]] were unavailable for filming. Professor Travers and Anne are [[PutOnABus said to have moved to America]], and Professor Watkins and Isobel fill their shoes ''extremely'' well. This is quite possibly [[LampshadeHanging lampshaded]] by the fact that the Doctor and companions mention repeatedly that they were hoping to meet Travers and Anne before finding out that the pair are gone, even though they are otherwise unimportant to the story.
