References to Doctor Who (1963) including the appearances of Sarah Jane Smith, K9, the Fifth Doctor, the Eighth Doctor, the First Doctor, Alpha Centauri, et cetera, were put in the series to connect this show with Doctor Who (1963) and Doctor Who (1996), and to establish that it wasn't a reboot, but a revamp and a direct continuation, and that Doctor Who: Rose (2005) takes place years after Doctor Who: Survival: Part Four (1989) and Doctor Who (1996). Doctor Who: Night of the Doctor (2013) is a prequel revealing the fate of the 8th Doctor (Paul McGann) and his regeneration into the War Doctor (Sir John Hurt), who came before the 9th Doctor (Christopher Eccleston).

On the 2012 episodes, the title logo is decorated with a motif related to each episode's theme. On episode one, "Asylum of the Daleks", it was decorated with dots like the ones covering a Dalek body. On episode 2, "Dinosaurs on a Spaceship" it was decorated in green-like vegetation. On episode 3, "A Town Called Mercy" it was made of wooden boards, like the buildings of the Far West town on the episode. And on episode 4, "The Power of Three", it was decorated with a pattern made of cubes.
Season 8 in Australia is PG on television, and M on DVD. Science fiction themes and violence being the reason.
