* QuintessentialBritishGentleman: Okay, so the Doctor's always been a bit of an anglophile, but the movie and the Eighth Doctor really takes it UpToEleven. Dresses like a Victorian poet, oft-stated fondness for tea, highly eccentric -- it's a wonder they didn't have him save the day with a crumpet, a bowler hat and a copy of ''[[BritishNewspapers The Times]]'', really.

* NoNameGiven: The TV Movie does not have an official name or title other than ''Doctor Who''. Producer Philip Segal offered "The Enemy Within" to fans as an unofficial title; some fans use it, others don't. "The American telemovie with the Pertwee logo" is the term given by The Completely Useless Encyclopedia. Pretty much sums it up. BBC Worldwide for the DVD release simply calls it ''Doctor Who: The Movie''.
** Incredibly, despite this being a relaunch and an attempt at introducing the character to (non-PBS-watching) Americans, the "Doctor who?" gag is never used and no attempt is made to discern the Doctor's real name. (Mind you it doesn't hurt that Chang Lee dubs the Doctor "John Smith" and the Master borrows "Bruce.")

* 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.

* ShoutOut: The Master's line, "Life is wasted on the living" is a quote from ''Radio/TheHitchHikersGuideToTheGalaxy'', which was written by former ''Doctor Who'' writer and scrip editor Creator/DouglasAdams.

* CaliforniaDoubling: Did we say "San Francisco"? Because parts of it look an awful lot like [[StargateCity Vancouver]]...

* 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.
