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]] [[http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/AudioPlay/BigFinishDoctorWho while]]. (Although, it ''was'' [[Recap/DoctorWhoS29E12TheSoundOfDrums the Time Lords' doing that one time.]]) You know, [[DeathIsCheap the usual]] for the Master.

* {{Foreshadowing}}: Both the fact that the Master was "calm" during his trial and execution and his "odd" request that his remains be taken to Gallifrey by the Doctor. We later learn he was calm because he had found a way to survive the execution, and he wanted the Doctor close at hand so as to steal his remaining regenerations.

* ForegoneConclusion: Courtesy of the opening narration, the audience knows instantly that Seventh isn't long for this world and that Eighth is just around the corner.

** The novelisation goes to great lengths to try and explain away the more {{egregious}} plot holes, and doesn't do too bad a job of it either:

* BigYes: And the Doctor does this right before his BigNo when he is excited about his memory slowly returning to him (and his new shoes).

One of the gang members, Chang Lee, is nice enough to call an ambulance. The ambulance arrives, with EMT Bruce. Bruce, Chang Lee, and "John Smith" are whisked away to the hospital, where the Doctor's physiology is sufficiently different from the human norm to cause a few raised eyebrows. Trauma surgeon Dr. Grace Holloway is called in (from a performance of ''Theatre/MadameButterfly'', where she was [[TenderTears weeping tenderly]], while on call) to check out why the man seems to have a double-speed heart beat. And to see why every scan keeps showing two hearts. As such, cue the [[{{Irony}} irony]]: the Seventh Doctor, the master manipulator, is now failing at the task of manipulating the continuance of his own life. He grows panicky, desperate to warn these surgeons '''not''' to operate on him, who are now assuming he is a human, having never seen an alien at all, and since he looks human, the difference doesn't register. He fights the anesthetic ''[[MadeOfIron two times]]'' to beg them not to take a peek inside him, but his pleas are written off as sedative-induced irrationality. He's put under each time. Even though the bullet wound is OnlyAFleshWound and pretty much harmless, Grace inadvertently does more harm than good when she starts poking inside the Doctor's arteries. The surgery takes a turn for the worse when Grace gets a probe stuck in the Doctor's unfamiliar physiology and it [[BodyHorror snaps off]] inside his body. Seven wakes up from the shock a third and final time. But he's not got any words left in him. Just a huge ''scream''. The painful last gasp of the seventh incarnation of our Time Lord protagonist drowns out the sound of the music [[NiceJobBreakingItHero and the Doctor flatlines]] on the operating table. From exploratory surgery. Congratulations, Grace! You're the first companion to successfully ''kill the Doctor''!

As we open, the Master, apparently escaped the [[Recap/DoctorWhoS26E4Survival cheetah planet]], only to be EX-TER-MIN-AT-ED by the Daleks (who now sound like cyborg chipmunks) for some random reason. (Then again, it's Daleks. Did they really need a reason?) And the Seventh Doctor is charged with bringing his ashes back from Skaro, [[Recap/DoctorWhoS25E1RemembranceOfTheDaleks in spite of the planet being reduced to ashes previously]] (the planet is [[Recap/DoctorWhoS33E1AsylumOfTheDaleks still not-destroyed]] [[Recap/DoctorWhoS35E1TheMagiciansApprentice to this day]]). He's supposed to take them to Gallifrey for, well, maybe a really dignified and tasteful ashes-scattering ceremony over the seas of Rassilon or something.
