* PantyShot: The two girls start in very short dresses (Isobel was shooting pictures using Zoe as a model) and stay that way for three-quarters of the episode - which does not make running from a private army or climbing up and down ladders easy to do modestly. They fail.

* OutOfGenreExperience: This is a Troughton story that isn't a base-under-siege, features UNIT, a DiabolicalMastermind VillainWithGoodPublicity and Cybermen invading modern-day London, and feels like a test-run for the Pertwee era (because [[PoorlyDisguisedPilot it was]]).

He allies with and manipulates the Cybermen into taking over the world for him, so he can then doublecross them and create a utopia where all ideological disputes cease and unity is attained. Unfortunately for Vaughn, the Cybermen were one step ahead and doublecrossed him first, leading him to [[EnemyMine ally with the Doctor]] to take down the threat that he himself had led to the Earth in the first place.

* StockFootage: The same stock footage of missile launchers is used repeatedly in episodes 7 and 8.

to:

* StockFootage: The exact same stock footage of missiles pivoting up, then cutting to the behind view, then a single missile launchers rotating across a clear sky, is used repeatedly three times in episodes 7 and 8.three successive episodes. This wouldn't have been so obvious to the audience watching it week-by-week, but is painful in an ArchiveBinge (it doesn't help that at least two are EngagingChevrons sequences).
