* FictionalDocument: It's widely believed that the Inspector's ''Encyclopaedia Cosmosica'' inspired Douglas Adams to do a little radio play titled ''Radio/TheHitchhikersGuideToTheGalaxy'' even as he worked on scripts for ''Inspector Spacetime'''s [[Series/DoctorWho ripoff]].

* ShockingSwerve: The First Inspector's abrupt death/regeneration near the end of "The Lost Asteroid" could be seen as an example of this.

Added DiffLines:

* CargoShip: Some fans continue to ship the X7 with the Inspector, although [[WordOfGod this has never had any basis in canon]].


Added DiffLines:

* FanPreferredCouple: Veneziana and Thorough and that lasso spawned a thousand {{FanFic}}s, even though there was never a hint of official on-screen attraction between them.


Added DiffLines:

* FirstInstallmentWins: The Sixth Inspector made his entrance in the dynamic and thrilling adventure "The Triplicate Catastrophe", arguably the best story of the classic series, due to stellar acting on the part of the triplets, grand special effects, a suspenseful cliffhanger where his companion puts him in a chokehold, and a daring choice to completely ignore the studio format and take a stab at a bigger production.


Added DiffLines:

* OneSceneWonder: Adding up all of his time on screen from the single arc in which he appears, the Indictor spends no more than ''forty minutes'' onscreen in [[LongRunner the entire series]].

* NarmCharm: Naturally. It's part of the appeal, especially in Classic Spacetime. Those early Blogons! [[SpecialEffectFailure Adorable.]]
* NightmareFuel: The Blogons. Whether you find them terrorizing in their own right or you just think "they look like walking salad spinners" varies a lot from person to person, though their episodes tend to score very high on the Terror Tracker. They usually score four or five out of six.[[note]]Few monsters aside from the Snarling Lions have managed to outdo the Blogons on a regular basis in the field of reducing the audience to a quivering fetal position[[/note]]

* BrokenBase: The "Blogon" vs. "Blorgon" war has bitterly divided the fanbase ever since the alien race appeared in the series' second episode. For the record, Brian Swansea, the writer/artist who created the iconic ''Inspector Spacetime'' enemy, used to insist on "Blorgon" before admitting that he was never really paid enough to care, while Leslie French preferred to drop the R.
