* HilariousInHindsight: The Abbot of Amboise is the Doctor's doppleganger. Creator/PeterCapaldi was cast as the Doctor just after playing another 17th century French clergyman, Cardinal Richelieu, in ''Series/TheMusketeers''.
* MissingEpisode: Although ''Doctor Who'' is well known for its missing episodes, this episode was the worst hit by the BBC's junking policy; not only were all four episodes lost but unlike all the other missing/incomplete serials no footage whatsoever has been recovered (not even through telesnaps). Although audio recordings do exist, there's no visual reference for any of the action.

* GeniusBonus: Since it's Steven's DayInTheLimelight and the Doctor is missing for most of the story, the story foregoes the usual HollywoodHistory settings to focus on a historical event that was and is fairly obscure to British audiences (the Massacre of Saint Bartholomew's Day). Viewers are presumably supposed to identify with Steven's [[PinballProtagonist lack of any idea what's going on]] and the retelling of the historical events is given much more attention than usual. If you're familiar with the history, you end up identifying with the Doctor instead and the whole sympathy of the plot changes.
