* ScrewwDestiny: The rebels go back to the 20th century to blow up a politician they blame for assassinating a roomful of international dignitaries and starting World War III, leaving the Earth weak and open to a Dalek invasion. [[YouAlreadyChangedThePast It's eventually revealed that it was]] ''[[YouAlreadyChangedThePast their]]'' [[YouAlreadyChangedThePast bomb that caused the explosion.]] However, UNIT intervene and safely evacuate them all, averting disaster and leaving the future more open.

* ExcuseMeWhileIMultitask: The Doctor is suddenly attacked by a terrorist. The Doctor throws him to the ground, finishes his glass of wine, ''strolls'' over to the table to put it down and straightens up in time to intercept the man's next attack.

* AllThereInTheScript: Dialogue cut from the script established that all the Daleks infected with the Human Factor at the climax of [[Recap/DoctorWhoS4E9TheEvilOfTheDaleks The Evil Of The Daleks]] had been eradicated, indicating that that story was not the “final end” of the Daleks after all.

to:

* AlternateHistory: The Doctor visits a future Earth which he then retrospectively turns into an alternate history. To elaborate, just after the Doctor left our time, WorldWarIII broke out, weakening Earth and enabling the Daleks to take over. The Doctor learns enough about how the war started to return to our time and prevent it from happening, thus erasing the Dalek-occupied future.

* BatmanGrabsAGun: The Doctor disintegrates an Ogron with a laser gun.



* DyingMomentOfAwesome: The Controller helps the Doctor and Jo return to the past to try and stop the Daleks' world domination scheme, but stays behind to confront his masters.
* EnhancedOnDVD: The DVD special release does an ''extensive'' overhaul of the episode. It adds a lot of CGI in place of the primitive green screen-esque colour separation overlay effects (the monitors look more futuristic, the Dalek headquarters exterior shot is completely different and the building looks more intimidating with flying vehicles in the background), laser blasts, with people and Ogrons being more graphically disintegrated (controversially adding a scene where the Doctor [[BatmanGrabsAGun kills another Ogron]]). It also has veteran Dalek voice actor Creator/NicholasBriggs portray the Daleks in place of the original and admittedly shaky voice acting. (The series had tried to write off the Daleks and thus didn't have a go-to actor portrayal ready and able, and so the producers brought on two actors, Oliver Gilbert and Peter Messaline, who hadn't been as versed with Dalek voices and by now were out of practice. Neither Messaline nor Gilbert had ever been featured in ''any'' Doctor Who media before, nor since. Roy Skelton would later be called back (alongside future Davros actor Michael Wisher) and become the definitive classic series' voice of the Daleks.) Most notably, the climactic battle at Auderly House had entire sequences re-filmed ''decades'' after the serial had been released through funding by 2 entertain to show a true army of Daleks and Ogrons duking it out versus using new and borrowed costumes, when the original tried to create the illusion of an army by re-using the same shots of only a few Daleks and Ogrons rather unconvincingly. In fact the production team may have possibly been limited to '''two''' Daleks by Creator/JonPertwee's estimate (again, the series nearly wrote off the Daleks and didn't have that many props on hand), nowhere near enough to depict a fearsome battle.
* FacingTheBullettsOneLiner: The Controller, just before he gets, well, exterminated:
-->"Who knows? I may have helped to exterminate you,"

* SanDimasTime: The Doctor attributes the "eight minutes in the past = eight minutes in the present" thing to the "Blinovitch Limitation Effect". Mind you, that's his excuse for everything time-related.

* StableTimeLoop
StableTimeLoop: Humans from the future attempt to blow up UNIT headquarters to prevent someone from bombing a ministerial-level conference to be held there, starting WorldWarIII and allowing the Daleks to invade. As it turns out, it is their bomb that they are trying to prevent.
* TimeyWimeyBall: One of the earliest in Doctor Who.''Doctor Who''. Had already been touched on in "The Space Museum" but this could be seen as the TropeCodifier for Doctor Who.
* VichyEarth: VichyEarth: the Daleks have installed an apparently efficient system of willing human 'quislings'. It seems the Daleks have learned to keep people in order via more subtle methods than just sticking a radio receiver in their brains. Their collaborators are provided with sharp tailoring, cushy lodgings, blonde female staff and plenty of fruit and nuts. To do their really dirty work, they're employing the Ogrons, a race of interstellar mercenaries. The occupied future-Earth.Daleks themselves remain largely hidden behind the scenes.

Before ''Film/TheTerminator'', there was ''Day of the Daleks''.

A peace conference is being held in Britain under the auspices of Sir Reginald Styles - it's a reconvening of the one from "[[Recap/DoctorWhoS8E2TheMindOfEvil The Mind of Evil]]", and UNIT are once again providing security. Because they did such a bang-up job previously.

Anyhow, Styles is attacked and nearly killed by a guerrilla fighter in futuristic dress, but is saved by the intervention of a big - well - '''go'''rilla fighter, who knocks the assassin out and disappears. The Doctor deduces that the unconscious man is from the future, and that a device found with him is a time-travel gadget.
