Karuna.
* BetterToDieThanBeKilled: Hindle eventually concludes that it's better to blow up the whole Dome, with all of them inside, than to allow to Kinda to kill them.
* BlindSeer: PannaPanna.



* CareBearStare: the Box of Jhana is meant to have this effect, although it turns out that the effects on male humans can be more extreme and unpredictable.

* MiniMecha: the Total Survival Suit. [[http://media.aintitcool.com/coolproduction/ckeditor_assets/pictures/7580/original/tss2.png?1339764976 Standing still]], one can imagine it to be an impressive, boxy, 80's-style power armor, folded up into storage mode. [[SpecialEffectsFailure then it starts moving...]]
* NobleSavage: subverted a bit: it's implied that the Kinda used to be a hi-tech race, but manipulated their biome to the point that they could give up technology and live a blissful hunter-gatherer idyll with no fear of predators, famine or disease.

* SanitySlippage: Hindle's slipping when the story begins; by the end of the first episode, he's ''really'' starting to lose it.



* TheSiege

to:

* TheSiegeTheSiege: Hindle thinks the ''trees'' are going to attempt a siege of the Dome; later on, the Kinda actually do.


Added DiffLines:

* WomenAreWiser: The Kinda certainly think so; only women are supposed to have the power of speech, and Panna thinks only a woman or an "idiot" male could look into the Box of Jhana without going mad.

Added DiffLines:

* PinballProtagonist: The Doctor spends almost half the story in a jail cell, and subsequently is mostly just there to explain what's going on to Todd while the Kinda solve their own problems. Tegan spends most of the story possessed and Nyssa is completely missing in action. The most proactive character from Team TARDIS is Adric; sure, everything he tries fails, but at least he's ''doing something''.


* ShoutOutToToShakespeare: The Doctor quotes ''Theatre/TheTempest'' in the cave:

* ShoutOut: ''The Word for World is Forest'' by Creator/UrsulaKLeGuin is a definite influence.

* AllThereInTheManual: The novelisation identifies Todd as "Doctor Todd".
** The relationship between Hindle and Sanders is explored in greater detail.
** The two unnamed members of the expedition who went missing before Roberts are referred to as Stone and Carter.

Added DiffLines:

The one where Adric pretends to be an idiot.

Added DiffLines:

* AbsenteeActor: Nyssa only has cameos in episodes one and four, due to contractual issues related to her having been a guest character the previous season. One wonders why she couldn't have simply been assigned Todd's role in the story.


* ArsonMurderAndJaywalking: Hindle scolds Adric, saying he'll teach him "not to lie. Not to commit treason. And to wash behind the ears."



* EnhancedOnDVD: The DVD release features a frighteningly realistic CGI upgrade for the Mara, from a dorky-looking inflatable rubber prop.



* MindRape: Tegan's encounter with the Mara has been compared to a rape scene. Remember that ''Doctor Who'' is a ''family'' programme.



* WalkingShirtlessScene: all the male Kinda wear only sarongs and go bare-chested.
* WhatHappenedToTheMouse: it's never explained exactly what happened to the three missing human explorers, although it's implied that Panna tried to use the Box of Jhana on them and they either went completely insane, or went completely native and joined the Kinda.

Added DiffLines:

* ItIsPronouncedTroPay: First time viewers would think the story is pronounced like "Kind of", though it's "Kin-da".
