* PerkyGoth: The Ninth Doctor LooksLikeCesare, (a bit), wears a long dark coat and his TARDIS has a dark, shadowy industrial theme. Then again, he also complains about the jukebox in the pub not having any Packard Bell, laughs at his own jokes and sings a song from "Cabaret" at the end to defeat the invasion force, just for fun.

** The Doctor also makes multiple musical references, from his "Lon Cheney" line to Alison to his complaint about the lack of Packard Bell in the pub jukebox, to claiming to have done a poetry reading as a show-opener to an Elvis gig to his [[spoiler: final song]].

* WineIsClassy: When the Doctor is at his jerkiest at the start of the story, he goes into a small-town Northern pub and demands a specific vintage of Meursault. (In reality, he would undoubtedly have been beaten to within an inch of his life at this point.) This may be something of an ActorAllusion, as Creator/RichardEGrant previously played a wine drinker/TheAlcoholic in Film/WithnailAndI.

* GreatOffscreenWar: The Time Lords are alluded to be directing the Doctor's actions, and the novelisation and other extraneous materials explain that in the continuity envisioned at the time, the Time Lords had been wiped out by an alien invasion, resulting in their imprisonment in the Matrix, [[{TheMatrix}} no, not that one,]] and subsequently, their taking of control over the TARDIS, resulting in the Doctor being forced into dangerous situations as their agent. Apparently, the unnamed past companion who resulted in the "leave the girl behind" rule was the President of Gallifrey's daughter, and was killed in the invasion: the same invasion also resulted [[spoiler: in the Master's [[Villain'sDyingGrace death as he made a HeroicSacrifice]], which impressed the Doctor enough to resurrect him into an Android body.]]
* GreenAesop: See {{SpaceWhaleAesop}} below. Remember kids, don't pollute the environment or shapeshifting out-space aliens will decide we're dying anyway and murder us all!

** Originally, in the first drafts, the "companion" was to be a TARDIS-projected hologram of the Fifth Doctor, which suggests that he's also something of a MoralityPet, or immorality Pet, if you will.

* BadassLongcoat: The Doctor wears one.one, which looks somewhere between a military overcoat, some sort of Edwardian dress uniform, Eight's Wild Bill Hickok costume and the First Doctor's coat.



* CreepyGood: The Doctor.
* TheDulcineaEffect: Discussed.
* DullSurprise: Everyone, at everything.
* EeriePaleSkinnedBrunette: This version of the Ninth Doctor. He also has CreepyShadowedUndereyes. (Mind you, so does half the cast; it might just be the art style). If his hair wasn't so tidy he'd count as an example of LooksLikeCesare.

* GreatOffscreenWar
* GreenAesop

to:

* CreepyGood: The Doctor.
Doctor is particularly tall dark and snarky [[TheNthDoctor this time around]], tracks Alison to her home using a one-second glance he got at her pay slip, enthuses about the beauty of the Shalka HiveMind, causally mentions killing thousands in the past after the climax and generally behaves like a less drunken Withnail [[RecycledInSpace in space]]. He's also perfectly sweet to a random old lady he meets on the street, gives his apologies to Alison for the death of her friend Kim before the story began, is hesitant to bring Alison with him because he doesn't want to get anyone else killed and has a hint of a sad backstory, so it's a strange balance.

* FantasticRacism: The Shalka view humanity and all other humanoids as lower lifeforms. The Doctor himself shows some shades of this against humans at points in the story, but that can be put down to a mix of his new personality and resentment towards being forced into the situation, similarly enough to main-continuity Nine's "stupid apes" comments.
