* YouLookFamiliar: [[invoked]]
** A number of stunt performers are particularly clearly seen to die multiple times in the course of this story as soldiers or mooks, sometimes in the '''same episode'''. In later stories they would get better at disguising the stunt performers, or at least not showing close-ups of their faces.
** We first met Lennox on [[Recap/DoctorWhoS5E1TheTombOfTheCybermen Telos]].

* StopTrick: Used in one of the first scenes, in which the Doctor is attempting to repair the TARDIS's Time Vector Generator, which accidentally sends both himself and Liz forward in time by a few seconds. First Liz disappears, then the Doctor, then Liz reappears, and the Doctor reappears. It proves to be a mild ChekovsGun when the Doctor does something similar with an important tape recording to keep it out of an enemy's hands.
