Bernice and Jason, having decided to get married, are having a huge wedding party. Nearly every significant character from the New Adventures is invited.
- Baseball Episode: The Doctor decides to have a cricket match to ease tensions between the locals and the aliens.
- Continuity Porn: As the 50th New Adventure, this features a plethora of returning characters and a festival of loose-end-tying.
- Milestone Celebration: It's the 50th New Adventures novel.
- Shout-Out: The musicians Jacquilian and Sanki are based on the characters Julian and Sandy from the sketch comedy series Round the Horne. The scene where the Doctor hires them to play at Benny's wedding follows the standard form of a Julian and Sandy sketch, with the Doctor taking Kenneth Horne's role as the straight man.
- Stable Time Loop: A subplot involves the Doctor, having brought The Isley Brothers into the 21st century to play at the wedding, trying to keep them from hearing any of their own songs that they haven't written yet.
