- Epileptic Trees: Fans have been known to speculate at length about the S&S/Doctor Who connection. Are Sapphire and Steel Temporal Intervention Agents?
- Special Effects Failure: Too many to list; even the expensive and difficult effects look cheap.

The acting saves a lot of potentially So Bad It's Good moments, but it's hard to pull off a dramatic invisible box.
- Too Good to Last: For many fans, it was. Especially after one cruel series finale that was both a Cliff Hanger and a Downer Ending.
- The Woobie: Mr Tully in Adventure 2.
