YMMV / Swallows and Amazons

  • Science Marches On: Minor example with some of the statistics about the planets Dick reels off—after all, this was three decades before the Space Age. More egregiously in Winter Holiday the Doctor recommends rubbing snow on a frostbitten area, which advice is now known to be an "exploded theory". Dick explicitly calls up this as a real world trope (as "exploded theories").
  • Values Dissonance: The way the children casually refer to "natives" can be rather jarring, including in Secret Water, where they run into yet more kids with these pursuits who actively choose to be 'savages' rather as the Amazons are pirates.
