%%* EvilBrit: Creator/DavidWarner

to:

%%* * EvilBrit: Creator/DavidWarner[[Creator/DavidWarner Lord Azlok]] is the only other character in all 6 episodes to have a British accent.


* TheFifties



* Area51: A.k.a. Dreamland.

to:

* ApocalypseHow: From the sounds of it, the Viperox inflict a ApocalypseHow/Class2 on every world they successfully conquer (possibly a ApocalypseHow/Class4 in terms of the non-sapient biosphere). The Doctor states the Viperox "savage and decimate" every attacked world, but also that there's a good chance that there could well be ''something'' (if not much) left of the Gray aliens' homeworld for them to live on and salvage after the Viperox attacked it. The Viperox's plan is to "tear [planet Earth] to shreds" for humanity as soon as their TeethClenchedTeamwork is at an end.
* Area51: A.k.a. Dreamland.[[TitleDrop Dreamland]].



* TheFifties

to:

* TheFiftiesExplosiveBreeders: The Viperox don't transport an invasion force to a targeted world...
-->'''The Doctor:''' They land, go underground and ''hatch one''.


Added DiffLines:

* HeelRaceTurn: The Doctor states the Viperox will one day make this and become peace-loving, suggesting he knows from seeing the future, and it's part of his justification for actively avoiding inflicting the Viperox's total extinction.


* BugWar

to:

* BugWarBugWar: TheGreys are at war with the insectoid Viperox.



** Or possibly CaptainErsatz if your are feeling less charitable, but either way the Viperox Queen and her chamber are [[Film/{{Aliens}} strangely familiar]]...
** And [[Film/RaidersOfTheLostArk the warehouse might seem familiar]] to fans of Franchise/IndianaJones.

to:

* XenomorphXerox: The Viperox Queen has a similar look and posture to Alien Queen from ''Film/{{Aliens}}''.

Added DiffLines:

* {{Bowdlerise}}: Colonel Stark's unsubtle rant about the only cure for a communist being a bullet is usually cut out of reruns.


The Doctor breezes into a GreasySpoon in [[TheFifties 1950s]] New Mexico, in search of some quality junk food. Behind the counter of this one is Creator/GeorgiaMoffett, sporting a surprisingly good American accent; in front of the counter is Jimmy Stalkingwolf, a Stereotypical American Indian; and on the counter is a [[PowerGlows weird glowy thing]], left over from a flying saucer crash a few years ago.

So once they've escaped, Jimmy Stalkingwolf takes them to see his grandpa, Night Eagle, only to get captured by TheMenInBlack -- actually Robots in Black -- and get saved by Night Eagle and his buddies, who take out the robots using ''bows and arrows'', of all things. Night Eagle and friends are keeping ''another'' alien, of the same race as the Army's, in hiding. He's the husband of the first one, the one being kept prisoner in Dreamland, and he knows that the cool glowy thing in Cassie's diner isn't benign: it's a ''genocide bomb''.

* TakeThat: Briefly touched on in a very bitter, but thankfully not-long statement by Jimmy in regards to the army. Specifically, that the US military can do whatever it wants if it's deemed necessary, and has been doing so since the infamous Bear River Massacre (one of the very many less-than-redeemable behaviors of US expansionism against the American Indians).
