- An imaginary evolved Dalek, created from the Doctor's subconscious, speaks of a "great war" which threatened the entire universe, wiped out the Time Lords and almost all of the Daleks. The Doctor calls the idea "just about the most preposterous thing" that he has ever heard.
- On her second birthday in 1893, Molly went missing for several hours. She was eventually returned to her parents by Kotris.
- Kotris is a Time Lord.
- The Time Lords are preventing the Doctor's TARDIS from materialising on Gallifrey.
- While observing Kotris and the younger Molly in Ireland in 1893, the Doctor renders the TARDIS invisible.
- Molly refers to Dr. Sally Armstrong's death at the hands of the Daleks in London in 1972. (AUDIO: Fugitives)
- The Doctor has flashbacks to Lucie Miller's death in AUDIO: To the Death.
- The Doctor once again sings the British music hall song "It's a Long Way to Tipperary" to himself. (AUDIO: The Great War)
- Straxus would later tell the Lord President that the time ram which seemed to destroy his TARDIS was an illusion created for the Doctor's benefit. (AUDIO: X and the Daleks)
- Due to the fact that Kotris was erased from history, these events never happened. The Doctor, Molly and the Dalek time controller are the only individuals who remember the original timeline. (AUDIO: X and the Daleks)
- The Doctor mentions the Dalek's creator, and the fact that Daleks are genetically engineered for war. (TV: Genesis of the Daleks)
