* The new series shows that the Doctor can do these ''indirectly'' and evil will retreat. Case in point from "[[Recap/DoctorWhoS30E9ForestOfTheDead Forest of the Dead]]":
-->"I'm the Doctor, and you're in the biggest library in the universe. Look me up."
* Similarly, from the Eleventh Doctor's premiere "[[Recap/DoctorWhoS31E1TheEleventhHour The Eleventh Hour]]"...
--> '''The Doctor''': One more question. Just one. Is this world protected? ''(As one of the Monsters of the Week looks at records of various other [=MotW=] that have attacked Earth, ever.)'' 'Cause you lot aren't the first to come here. Oh, there have been so many. What you have to ask yourselves is: What happened to them? ''(The [=MotW=] get a montage of all Doctors from Creator/WilliamHartnell to Creator/DavidTennant with Creator/MattSmith emerging from the image of the last Doctor)'' Hello. I'm the Doctor. Basically... run.
* Older ''Series/DoctorWho'' series also had these, usually delivered by Creator/TomBaker. Case in point from "[[Recap/DoctorWhoS13E3PyramidsOfMars Pyramids of Mars]]":

!Classic Series
* Don't think it doesn't go back to the earliest days. In "[[Recap/DoctorWhoS1E7TheSensorites The new series shows Sensorites]]", the title aliens have decided that letting the Doctor can do these ''indirectly'' crew leave is too dangerous, and evil will retreat. Case in point from "[[Recap/DoctorWhoS30E9ForestOfTheDead Forest have taken a vital component of the Dead]]":
-->"I'm the Doctor, and you're
TARDIS. They act like they're totally in the biggest library control, until:
-->'''Sensorite:''' "You're
in the universe. Look me up.no position to threaten us."
* Similarly, from -->'''The Doctor:''' "I don't make threats, but I ''do'' keep promises. And I promise you I'll cause you more trouble than you've bargained for if you ''don't return my property.''"
-->[Sensorites trade looks, then one responds] "We must... decide what we shall do."
** It's also a good look into
the Eleventh First Doctor's premiere "[[Recap/DoctorWhoS31E1TheEleventhHour The Eleventh Hour]]"...
--> '''The Doctor''': One
character, there. He's a crotchety old man and does more question. Just one. than his share of yelling, but then you find his bark is worse than his bite... and then you find out what he looks like when he's ''actually'' ready to bite. When he stops being [[LargeHam hammy]] and starts being serious, you wanna listen.
* One [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=x7tKAi-lDhM from Jon Pertwee]]:
-->I cross the void beyond the mind\\
The empty space that circles time\\
I see where others stumble blind\\
To seek a truth they'll never find\\
Eternal wisdom is my guide\\
I am the Doctor!\\
\\
Through cosmic wastes the TARDIS flies\\
To taste the secret source of life\\
A presence science can't deny\\
Exists, within, outside, behind\\
The latitude of human minds\\
I am the Doctor!\\
\\
My voyage dissects the course of time\\
"Who knows?" you say, but are you right?\\
Who journeys deep to find the light\\
That glows so darkly in the night?\\
Toward that point I guide my flight\\
\\
As fingers move to end mankind\\
Metallic teeth begin to grind\\
With sword of truth I turn and fight\\
The satanic powers of the night\\
\\
Is your faith before your mind?\\
\\
Know me...\\
\\
Am I...\\
\\
The Doctor?
* Don't think the bad guys are no good at it. The title character of "[[Recap/DoctorWhoS8E2TheMindOfEvil The Mind of Evil]]" isn't the Master after all, but a creature that is able to use people's worst fears to drive them to ''death,'' typically requiring only ''seconds.'' How's
this world protected? ''(As thing work? Before anyone knows what's going on, a {{Redshirt}} who fears water seems to go nuts, drops dead, and when examined, proves to have somehow drowned in a dry room. It even made one of the Monsters Doctor's hearts stop after he was exposed to its full potential for a couple of minutes. So what happens when it tries to bring down the Week looks at records of various other [=MotW=] that have attacked Earth, ever.)'' 'Cause you lot aren't the first to come here. Oh, there have been so many. What you have to ask yourselves is: What happened to them? ''(The [=MotW=] get a montage of all Doctors from Creator/WilliamHartnell to Creator/DavidTennant with Creator/MattSmith emerging from the image of the last Doctor)'' Hello. Master?
-->'''The Master:''' "You can't harm me.
I'm stronger than you are. I brought you here. I gave you the Doctor. Basically... run.
* Older ''Series/DoctorWho'' series also had these, usually delivered
minds you need to feed on! ''You'' are ''my'' servant! ''YOU'RE MY SERVANT!!'' ... I'm too strong for you! ... *once outside, he bars the door* No more minds for you to feed on. Let's see how long starvation takes to bring you to heel."
** You can see him being affected
by Creator/TomBaker. Case it, then resisting. In the end, he isn't able to defeat it on his own with sheer willpower, but every time it looks like it will overpower him, he is able to get back to his feet. He is able to shut down the machinery it was attached to, and, when that doesn't stop it, leave the room and bar the door. While it's a rare moment we see the Master in point a great deal of distress, again, this thing was able to put the Doctor out of action in minutes, and leave anyone else dead in seconds. The Master is able to fight back, tell this thing ''exactly'' who it's dealing with, and then back up every word.
* The Fourth Doctor,
from "[[Recap/DoctorWhoS13E3PyramidsOfMars Pyramids of Mars]]":



* In "[[Recap/DoctorWhoS31E13TheBigBang The Big Bang]]", River notes that she has the ability to kill a weakened Dalek, and the Dalek points out that records indicate the Doctor's companions always show mercy in such situations. "I'm River Song. [[CrowningMomentOfAwesome Check your records again.]]" The Dalek stops, then ''begs for mercy''.
-->'''Amy:''' What happened to the Dalek?\\
'''River:''' [[BondOneLiner It died]].

to:

* In "[[Recap/DoctorWhoS31E13TheBigBang Leela gets another good one in "[[Recap/DoctorWhoS14E6TheTalonsOfWengChiang The Big Bang]]", River notes Talons of Weng-Chiang]]". She's about to be killed in a particularly painful manner by Magnus Greel (for the purpose of prolonging his life by a means that is rapidly losing effectiveness), and this only makes her angry:
--->"When we are both in the Great Hereafter, I will hunt you down, Bent-Face! And put you through my agonies a thousand times!"
* Leela has one in "[[Recap/DoctorWhoS15E4TheSunMakers The Sun Makers]]", when she's being held hostage to force the Doctor to do something. Someone tells her that she'll die if he doesn't come back. "Then I die." (Pulls out her knife.) "But before I do, I'll see this rat's nest knee deep in your blood. That is a promised thing." (One of the hostage takers says that if
she has to be killed, he won't be the ability first on his feet.)
* One from the Fourth Doctor, in "[[Recap/DoctorWhoS18E4StateOfDecay State of Decay]]":
-->'''Aukon:''' You will all serve the Great One, Doctor, one way or another. If you do not join us you will feed him with your blood.\\
'''The Doctor:''' No. [[TakeAThirdOption There is a third choice]].\\
'''Aukon:''' What is that?\\
'''The Doctor:''' I can ''destroy'' the Great One.
* Davros ''tries'' in "[[Recap/DoctorWhoS25E1RemembranceOfTheDaleks Remembrance of the Daleks]]":
-->'''Davros''': We shall become all--\\
'''The Doctor''': -Powerful! Crush the lesser races! Conquer the galaxy! Unimaginable Power! [[ArsonMurderAndJaywalking UNLIMITED RICE PUDDING!]] Et cetera! Et cetera!

!Expanded Universe
* The Eighth Doctor in the [[AudioPlay/BigFinishDoctorWho audio adventure]] "Phobos": "Was that supposed
to frighten me? I've seen entire species destroyed, civilisations left in ruins. I've witnessed solar systems vanish in the twinkling of an eye. I've seen things that would freeze your blood. So don't threaten me. Don't ever threaten me."
** Also from the Eighth Doctor, in the Literature/DoctorWhoNewAdventures novel ''The Dying Days'': "I am the man that gives monsters nightmares. The Daleks call me the Bringer of Darkness. I am the Eighth Man Bound. I am the Champion of Life and Time. I'm the guy with two hearts. I make History better. I am the Doctor."
* And (goodness, there's a lot, aren't there?) from the audio "Death Comes to Time", a commander gives orders to his men about a battle they all know they're going to lose.
-->"Resist the Canisians. Breathe harder to starve them of air, and as they
kill you bleed on their boots. Offer them no compliance, no words, no recognition of existence."

* In "[[Recap/DoctorWhoS27E6Dalek Dalek]]",

last of its kind. After tricking Rose into freeing it, killing its torturer, disabling its prison and draining half of America of power, it lets out a single cry.
-->'''Dalek''': [[AC:'''THE DALEKS SURVIVE IN ME!''']]



* In "[[Recap/DoctorWho2005CSTheChristmasInvasion The Christmas Invasion]]", Harriet Jones, Prime Minister ([[RunningGag Yes, we know who she is]]) is speaking to somebody LockedOutOfTheLoop about an oncoming invasion, and he's surprised at her speaking of aliens as being so common. We then get this:
-->'''Harriet:''' "There's an act of Parliament banning my autobiography."
* From "[[Recap/DoctorWhoS28E4TheGirlInTheFireplace The Girl in the Fireplace]]":
-->'''The Doctor:''' ''(whilst chasing a Clockwork Robot)'' Even monsters have nightmares!\\
'''Reinette:''' What can monsters have nightmares about?!\\
'''The Doctor:''' ''(as he chases it back through the fireplace)'' ME!



'''Doctor:''' You sound just like your mother!
** Then she pulls it off right in "[[Recap/DoctorWhoS28E13Doomsday Doomsday]]". After the Daleks and Cybermen verbally joust (read below), the Daleks wonder why one man in the picture makes Rose's heart race. When she finally admits it's the Doctor, all the Daleks in the room roll back a bit: their way of taking a ''very'' nervous step backward.

** And the badass retort:
--->'''Rose''': [[PreAssKickingOneLiner Go to hell!]]
** The Beast is quite fond of these.
-->'''The Beast''': "This is the Darkness. This is ''my'' domain, you little '''things''' that live in the light, clinging to your feeble suns... which die. Only the Darkness remains."

** In this case, Dalek Sec is not only boasting, but making ''an objective statement of fact''. The odds really were that one-sided. In spite of the Cyber Leader calling in reinforcements, the Daleks later gunned them down with impunity.
* And in "[[Recap/DoctorWhoS29E9TheFamilyOfBlood The Family of Blood]]", Tim Latimer makes a badass boast on behalf of the Doctor: "I've seen him. He's like fire and ice and rage. He's like the night, and the storm in the heart of the sun. He's ancient and forever... He burns at the center of time and he can see the turn of the universe... And... he's wonderful."
* From "[[Recap/DoctorWho2007CSVoyageOfTheDamned Voyage of the Damned]]": "I'm the Doctor. I'm a Time Lord. I'm from the planet Gallifrey in the constellation Kasterberous. I'm 903 years old, and I'm the man who's going to save your lives, and all six billion on the planet below. You got a problem with that?"

* Leela has one in "[[Recap/DoctorWhoS15E4TheSunMakers The Sun Makers]]", when she's being held hostage to force the Doctor to do something. Someone tells her that she'll die if he doesn't come back. "Then I die." (Pulls out her knife.) "But before I do, I'll see this rat's nest knee deep in your blood. That is a promised thing." (One of the hostage takers says that if she has to be killed, he won't be the first on his feet.)
** Leela gets another good one in "[[Recap/DoctorWhoS14E6TheTalonsOfWengChiang The Talons of Weng-Chiang]]". She's about to be killed in a particularly painful manner by Magnus Greel (for the purpose of prolonging his life by a means that is rapidly losing effectiveness), and this only makes her angry:
--->"When we are both in the Great Hereafter, I will hunt you down, Bent-Face! And put you through my agonies a thousand times!"
* One [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=x7tKAi-lDhM from Jon Pertwee]]:
-->I cross the void beyond the mind\\
The empty space that circles time\\
I see where others stumble blind\\
To seek a truth they'll never find\\
Eternal wisdom is my guide\\
I am the Doctor!\\
\\
Through cosmic wastes the TARDIS flies\\
To taste the secret source of life\\
A presence science can't deny\\
Exists, within, outside, behind\\
The latitude of human minds\\
I am the Doctor!\\
\\
My voyage dissects the course of time\\
"Who knows?" you say, but are you right?\\
Who journeys deep to find the light\\
That glows so darkly in the night?\\
Toward that point I guide my flight\\
\\
As fingers move to end mankind\\
Metallic teeth begin to grind\\
With sword of truth I turn and fight\\
The satanic powers of the night\\
\\
Is your faith before your mind?\\
\\
Know me...\\
\\
Am I...\\
\\
The Doctor?



-->'''The Doctor''': I walked away from the Last Great Time War. I marked the passing of the Time Lords. I saw the birth of the universe, and watched as time ran out, moment by moment, until nothing remained. No time. No space. Just me. I've walked in universes where the laws of physics were devised by the mind of a madman. I've watched universes freeze and creations burn. [[ShoutOut I have seen things you wouldn't believe]]. I have lost things you'll never understand. And I know things. Secrets that must never be told. Knowledge that must never be spoken. Knowledge that will make parasite gods ''blaze.'' So come on then! Take it! Take it all, baby! Have it! ''You have it all!''

* Don't think the bad guys are no good at it. The title character of "[[Recap/DoctorWhoS8E2TheMindOfEvil The Mind of Evil]]" isn't the Master after all, but a creature that is able to use people's worst fears to drive them to ''death,'' typically requiring only ''seconds.'' How's this thing work? Before anyone knows what's going on, a {{Redshirt}} who fears water seems to go nuts, drops dead, and when examined, proves to have somehow drowned in a dry room. It even made one of the Doctor's hearts stop after he was exposed to its full potential for a couple of minutes. So what happens when it tries to bring down the Master?
-->'''The Master:''' "You can't harm me. I'm stronger than you are. I brought you here. I gave you the minds you need to feed on! ''You'' are ''my'' servant! ''YOU'RE MY SERVANT!!'' ... I'm too strong for you! ... *once outside, he bars the door* No more minds for you to feed on. Let's see how long starvation takes to bring you to heel."
** You can see him being affected by it, then resisting. In the end, he isn't able to defeat it on his own with sheer willpower, but every time it looks like it will overpower him, he is able to get back to his feet. He is able to shut down the machinery it was attached to, and, when that doesn't stop it, leave the room and bar the door. While it's a rare moment we see the Master in a great deal of distress, again, this thing was able to put the Doctor out of action in minutes, and leave anyone else dead in seconds. The Master is able to fight back, tell this thing ''exactly'' who it's dealing with, and then back up every word.
* Don't think it doesn't go back to the earliest days. In "[[Recap/DoctorWhoS1E7TheSensorites The Sensorites]]", the title aliens have decided that letting the crew leave is too dangerous, and have taken a vital component of the TARDIS. They act like they're totally in control, until:
-->'''Sensorite''': "You're in no position to threaten us."
-->'''Doctor''': "I don't make threats, but I ''do'' keep promises. And I promise you I'll cause you more trouble than you've bargained for if you ''don't return my property.''"
-->[Sensorites trade looks, then one responds] "We must... decide what we shall do."
** It's also a good look into the First Doctor's character, there. He's a crotchety old man and does more than his share of yelling, but then you find his bark is worse than his bite... and then you find out what he looks like when he's ''actually'' ready to bite. When he stops being [[LargeHam hammy]] and starts being serious, you wanna listen.
* In "[[Recap/DoctorWho2005CSTheChristmasInvasion The Christmas Invasion]]", Harriet Jones, Prime Minister ([[RunningGag Yes, we know who she is]]) is speaking to somebody LockedOutOfTheLoop about an oncoming invasion, and he's surprised at her speaking of aliens as being so common. We then get this:
-->'''Harriet''': "There's an act of Parliament banning my autobiography."



-->'''Doctor:''' "If you think because she is dead, I am weak, then you understand very little. If you were any part of killing her, and you're not afraid, then you understand nothing at all. So, for your own sake, understand this. I am the Doctor. I'm coming to find you, and I will never, ever stop."
* From "[[Recap/DoctorWhoS32E2DayOfTheMoon Day of the Moon]]" [[spoiler: when the Doctor defeats the Silence]]:

* Leela has one in "The Sunmakers", when she's being held hostage to force the Doctor to do something. Someone tells her that she'll die if he doesn't come back. "Then I die." (Pulls out her knife.) "But before I do, I'll see this rat's nest knee deep in your blood. That is a promised thing." (One of the hostage takers says that if she has to be killed, he won't be the first on his feet.)

** Rose herself gets to make a particularly effective boast (though it does pale in comparison to the Doctor's, it still gets points for being intended as a DefiantToTheEnd boast):
--->'''Rose:''' I met the Emperor. And I took the Time Vortex and poured it into his head and turned him into dust. D'you get that? The God of all Daleks ''and I destroyed him. HAH!''

-->Doctor: "And one whacking great kick up the backside for the Silence! ''You just raised an army against yourselves!'' And now, for a thousand generations, you're going to be ordering them to destroy you, every day. How fast can you run? Because today's the day the human race throws you off their planet, and they won't even know they're doing it. I think quite possibly the word you're looking for, right now, is...whoops, run. Guys, I mean us: RUN!"

** You can see him being affected by it, then resisting. In the end, he isn't able to defeat it on his own with sheer willpower, but every time it looks like it will overpower him, he is able to get back to his feet. He is able to try to shut down the machinery it was attached to, and, when that doesn't stop it, leave the room and bar the door. While it's a rare moment we see the Master in a great deal of distress, again, this thing was able to put the Doctor out of action in minutes, and leave anyone else dead in seconds. The Master is able to fight back, tell this thing ''exactly'' who it's dealing with, and then back up every word.
