* YearInsideHourOutside: In the e-book ''The Beast of Babylon'', the Doctor has an adventure after he left Rose at the end of his first episode. He then returns to Rose, from her perspective, within a minute of him departing. We later indirectly learn in "[[Recap/DoctorWho50thASTheDayOfTheDoctor The Day of the Doctor]]" that he'd been gone a century from his perspective, the events of ''The Beast of Babylon'' being the final outing, before returning to Rose.

** It should also be mentioned that the [[Literature/DoctorWhoNovelisations novelization]] adds the detail that the Doctor went travelling for several weeks between his trip to Rose's apartment and when he saves her from Auton!Mickey at the restaurant.


* MacGuffinBlindness: The Doctor is looking for a big round antenna in the heart of London in which the Nestine Consciousness may have hidden his transmitter. As he's saying this, right behind him framing his head is the London Eye (a giant Ferris Wheel). Rose spots it, but the Doctor doesn't pay attention until Rose points it out.

Added DiffLines:

* BurpOfFinality: A Nestene construct in the shape of a wheelie bin burps after swallowing Mickey. However, it hasn't eaten him, only captured him, and he turns up again alive and well later.

Added DiffLines:

* GooglingTheNewAcquaintance: Rose decides to research the Doctor by searching "Doctor" on... "Search-Wise", which predictably brings up a huge amount of irrelevant results. So she narrows the search to "Doctor Blue Box", which brings up a relevant result improbably quickly.

They eat. The fake Mickey is obsessed with the Doctor, and keeps repeating the same words, babe, sugar, baby, sweetheart. The Doctor tracks them down and causes the fake Mickey to fall apart. They escape into the TARDIS, which has had a hell of a makeover, possibly not for the best it ''is'' a tad grungy... The Doctor tries to fly to plastic people headquarters, but fails. He and Rose have a half-angry half-curious all-expository argument. They discover that the base is under the London Eye[[note]]a massive Ferris wheel, for those not in the know[[/note]]. They go down and see the plastic controller, which they call the [[Recap/DoctorWhoS7E1SpearheadFromSpace Nestene Consciousness]]. The real Mickey's there, freaking out. The Doctor tries to talk the Nestene out of it; except the Doctor has been involved in something big and terrible that he couldn't stop from destroying their nutrient planets, nor any other worlds that were destroyed in the conflict which has made the Nestene ''extremely'' unwilling to trust him. The Nestene discovers the anti-plastic the Doctor has, goes crazy and activates all the plastic people. Jackie, who's out shopping, is attacked by evil plastic robot brides. Conspiracy man, also out shopping, gets a moment to enjoy seeing his theories verified before the verification of his theories shoots him with its ArmCannon.

The new beginning. [[Creator/ChristopherEccleston And a new Doctor]]. Well, from ''[[TheNthDoctor our]]'' standpoint, that is.

Added DiffLines:

* FunnyBackgroundEvent: Rose casually makes tea while the Doctor is strangled by an Auton arm in the background. She's not much more concerned when she actually sees it, as she thinks he's faking.

Added DiffLines:

* LittleNo: The Doctor's response when he realizes that Jackie is trying to flirt with him.

Added DiffLines:

* IsThisAJoke: After escaping the pursuing Autons, Rose assumes that they were students pulling a prank. The Doctor sarcastically responds, "Well done" before disabusing her of the idea.

Added DiffLines:

* NoOSHACompliance: The Nestene Consciousness' lair is two parts OSHA-compliant handrails, and the rest definitely ''not'', complete with a nice platform opening up to the Nestene's pit.

Added DiffLines:

* InternalHomage: The opening shot, of the Earth hanging in space, references the Third Doctor's first story, [[Recap/DoctorWhoS7E1SpearheadFromSpace "Spearhead from Space"]], which has a number of similarities to this episode: both the first stories after a hiatus; both presenting a dramatic increase in production values as compared to what had come before; both starting with a new Doctor, companion and setting; both being written as jumping-on points for newcomers; both involving the Autons.


* IntelligibleUnintelligible: The Nestene Consciousness emits a series of incomprehensible rumbles and shrieks, but the Doctor is able to understand and carry on a conversation with it.
