Added DiffLines:

* SelfPlagiarism: Creator/TerryNation rehashed the plot of "[[Recap/DoctorWhoS1E2TheDaleks The Daleks]]": a group of Daleks in a city encountering the Thals on a ravaged planet; a deadly plague instead of a neutron bomb; someone using a Dalek shell as a disguise; the Doctor imprisoned in a cell and with paralysed legs; and the Daleks imprisoned in their city at the end of the story.

Added DiffLines:

** The "ears" of the supreme Dalek? Those are just two random jam jars stuck on in pretty much the last minute in order to make it look slightly more regal.

* ShoutOut: Rebec was named after Creator/TerryNation's daughter Rebecca.



* TheXOfY: Humorously, "Planet" and "Daleks" are the most common X and Y. Really, this is the archetypical Doctor Who title!

Added DiffLines:

* WhatHappenedToTheMouse: Despite his having played a major part in setting the stage for the Dalek invasion of the galaxy, the Master is conspicuously absent, and only briefly mentioned near the start of the story. In fact, Creator/RogerDelgado would never play the role again from this point onwards (due to his tragic death in a car crash between Seasons 10 and 11), with the Master not appearing again until just before the midway point of Creator/TomBaker's run as the Doctor.
