* TheyWastedAPerfectlyGoodPlot: This story is widely regarded as the weakest of Series 1, partially because of this. We hear of a massive conspiracy that is influencing the Human Empire, yet we barely see any of the Human Empire. [[WebVideo/MrTARDISReviews MrTARDIS]] said this might not have been such a bad thing if the characters didn't keep mentioning how big and diverse the Human Empire was without showing it, and says this is the sort of story that can't really be told in 45 minutes. That's not to say we can't go back to it someday... as long as somebody remembers to... ''Doctor Who'' is a very vast place and it's easy to lose track of things. "Planet of the Ood" at least gave a morsel of the second empire; here we see a glimpse of the fourth, and a very bare glimpse of it at best. It's interesting to consider that it's probably because [[RecycledScript Davies originally pitched this story to Cartmel in 1987]], when it would have had 100 minutes, not 45, to use.

* HarsherInHindsight: The Doctor kicking Adam out of the TARDIS for bad behaviour is this considering the actor Bruno Langley was kicked off ''Series/CoronationStreet'' in 2017 for sexual misconduct. He had recorded a Big Finish audio earlier that year, but this also scuppered chances of further audios.
