Black Time Lords previously appeared in the spin-off novel The Shadows of Avalon by Paul Cornell , published in , as well as in the Big Finish Productions audio plays, in which Lord President Rassilon was played by actor Don Warrington whose likeness is used for the character in official artwork.
Whilst the boy Master wears a black-and-white outfit like those worn by the first Time Lords seen on screen, in The War Games in ,  the adult Time Lords are depicted dressed in the ceremonial robes first seen in The Deadly Assassin in Created by then BBC staff designer James Acheson prior to his film career, the huge stiff collars of these outfits remained the distinctive look for officials of the Doctor's race.

The Doctor has previously been prematurely aged in The Leisure Hive This is the first episode in which it is explicitly established that the TARDIS' anachronistic nature goes largely unnoticed in part due to its "perception filter". The Doctor makes reference to having to end the Time War.
This is echoed in " The Satan Pit " when the Beast calls the Doctor the "killer of his own kind", suggesting explicitly the Doctor's involvement with the destruction of all the Time Lords in the last great Time War.
