** In the very earliest era, the First Doctor coming up with different mispronunciations of "Chesterton". This was broadened in some stories to aliens and non-English-speaking human characters having difficulty pronouncing "Ian".

** In the very earliest era, the First Doctor coming up with different mispronunciations of "Chesterton". This was broadened in some stories to aliens and non-English-speaking human characters having difficulty pronouncing "Ian". (Legend has it this started out with Doctor actor William Hartnell occasionally getting the name wrong during recording, to the point where it was adopted as a character tic.)
** References to UNIT-related incidents happening in the 1970s, "Or maybe the 80s" (and variants thereof). This is due to the fact the original 1963-89 series was inconsistent as to in what decade the earth-based UNIT stories of the Patrick Troughton, Jon Pertwee and Tom Baker eras actually took place. This uncertainty has since been incorporated into the show itself.
