* HumanSacrifice: Invoked

to:

* HumanSacrifice: InvokedInvoked. The Doctor rejects this on the grounds they are too civilized.



* MindRape: The Doctor and Zoe get this when they start using their minds to power their machines. This is represented in a fairly disturbing and abstract sequence of the two of them moaning in pain through a fisheye lens.



* RoyalBlood

to:

* TheQuisling: Subverted with Selris and Eelek. Selris is initially duped by the Krotons, but doesn't go into denial when their evil becomes apparent, and his reluctance to attack them is a realistic appreciation of his people's relative weakness and the fact that the Krotons would probably respond with genocide. Eelek, who in usual examples of this trope would be the LastStand, is transparently unstable, power-hungry and villainous[[note]]For a start, he's played by Philip Madoc[[/note]].
