* ImpairmentShot: For the newly regenerated Doctor in the waiting room.
* ImpracticallyFancyOutfit: The Master always dresses for the occasion.
* IntimateOpenShirt: The Doctor unbuttons his shirt for the purely practical reason that Grace wants to check out his fascinating alien body, but the fact he starts undressing the moment he steps in the door comes across as a bit eager.

* IdiotBall: The cunning, calculating Seventh Doctor leaves the TARDIS without checking the scanner and gets shot by a street gang. If only Ace were there...



* KarmaHoudini: The street gang that kills Lee's friends and shoot the Seventh Doctor is never seen or mentioned again.



* SpearCarrier: Believe it or not, the Seventh Doctor. TheChessmaster who could plot his foes into oblivion if he wanted is simply BackForTheDead. He gets relegated to a mere '''ten''' lines, all of which are very abbreviated, doesn't have much impact, and seems to be settling in from a big mission at the start of the story. His main purpose in this story is to lead the way for Creator/PaulMcGann to take over. Then he gets one final scene as a hologram. Creator/SylvesterMcCoy felt like it would have been better to just start with the Doctor already regenerated and then go back and tell the story of what happened to his incarnation to capitalize on the Seventh Doctor's portrayal. Sly Sylvester seemed to get the short end of the stick on this one.

Anyway, the Doctor's death doesn't last, [[TheNthDoctor as is routine for Time Lords]], although thanks to the anesthetic, it was a close call. Hours later, the Doctor starts to come back to life in the morgue through regeneration. His bone structure crackles as it transforms, and electrical energies fling out of his body. His face does a lot of wicked contorting and changes into someone looking like Creator/PaulMcGann. Meet the Eighth Doctor. Right off the bat, Eight is confused and suffering from a bad case of [[Recap/DoctorWhoS19E1Castrovalva post-regenerative amnesia]]. But his regeneration has boosted his strength. He starts pounding on the cold storage door several times until it falls down with a heavy thump. The Doctor scares [[FatComicRelief Pete the morgue worker]] half to death by appearing right when the guy is watching an old Film/{{Frankenstein|1931}} film. Wandering around the hospital in a daze, the Doctor ends up in the run-down "broken mirrors and creepy dolls" wing where he takes to a moment to [[ChewingTheScenery scream "WHO AM I?!" dramatically]], while wrapped in that white shroud and showing off his half-naked torso. The fact that he LooksLikeJesus is neatly paired with shots of the satanic Master looking very serious.

Oh, and the Master tries to steal the Doctor's body while blowing things up, the Doctor is put in bondage gadgets, the Master tenderly kisses Lee on his forehead for no reason, and the Eye of Harmony eventually saves everyone by sucking the Master into its core. The Doctor reaches out and tries to save him, but to no avail. The Master gets killed DeaderThanDead for [[KilledOffForReal real]]... [[JokerImmunity for a while]]. (Like anyone believed for an instant that would stick. Although, it ''was'' [[Recap/DoctorWhoS29E12TheSoundOfDrums the Time Lords' doing that time.]]) You know, [[DeathIsCheap the usual]] for the Master.

* DroppedABridgeOnHim: The Seventh Doctor's fate.

to:

* DramaticIrony: The Seventh Doctor, TheChessmaster, the man who would manipulate companions to achieve his goals... get two slugs in the chest and dies on an operating table. By his standards, a dubious way to go.

* FakeShemp: The Master (played by Gordon Tipple) was briefly seen on Skaro prior to his execution. The cage obscured most of his face. Originally, Tipple's Master provided the opening voiceover narration but his lines were replaced by Creator/PaulMcGann's Doctor in the final cut. As a result, WordOfGod appears to have no problem with fan assumptions that this incarnation is actually intended to be the Anthony Ainley incarnation of the Master. Or that it may as well be him.

* YouHaveToBelieveMe: The Doctor gets a bit hysterical immediately after he realises the Master's loose, in his TARDIS and planning to suck the Earth through a black hole and steal his body. Unfortunately, this doesn't help him convince Grace of this. Although to be fair to him, he'd just very suddenly recovered all his memories and was presumably knocked a bit out of joint; his later attempts at trying to convince her of this are a lot calmer and more rational, but by this point she's not believing a word he says.

The Master, meanwhile, has paired up with Lee, and Lee is able to freely wander around the TARDIS (using the Doctor's key) because the TARDIS apparently likes him. The Master exploits Lee's nativity, and claims that the Doctor is a villain trying to steal the Master's lifeforce, promises him gold in return for helping him, and the two open the onboard Eye of Harmony, thus overloading the TARDIS and wreaking havoc on Earth.
