* ''*Sub Zero'' is rare example of a ''Doctor Who'' story to begin with a typographical symbol — in this case, an asterisk — instead of an alphabetic or numeric character. Later examples include:
* Strangely, the launch of the Daleks' atomic missile attack on [[Sydney]] only has the effect of destroying the famous Harbour Bridge. Also, no mention is made of any resulting radiation — so either the Daleks forgot to load the warheads, or they fired the unarmed missiles as a demonstration of their power.
