** The newly-introduced Mark IV, also played by Leeson, appeared on ''Series/TheWeakestLink'' in 2007 for a promotion of Series 2, but he was mostly a JokeCharacter who was voted off immediately, even voting ''himself'' off (though due to the rules of the game, he had to vote for someone other than himself, but this didn't stop him from voicing his intent). The reason was that the prop operators feared K-9's dreaded habit of breaking down at the most inconvenient times would happen during the game, so they made sure he would be voted off in the first round (the game's selection of DW cast itself admittedly agreed to rig their votes so that only members of the regular cast at the time were guaranteed to stay on till the final round and guest cast got the boot- but this didn't stop top-billed actors from being voted off).

* PutOnABus: Left for Cambridge offscreen in "Terror of the Autons", apparently dissatisified with her job of "passing the Doctor test tubes". Barry Letts apparently didn't like the character, but she was already under contract, which he didn't renew. She's said to have returned to UNIT and was stuck in the moonbase as of the ''Series/TheSarahJaneAdventures'' story "Death of the Doctor".

* InformedAbility: For a supposed genius, Adric doesn't come off as being particularly intelligent.

to:

* InformedAbility: For a supposed genius, Adric doesn't come off as being particularly intelligent. It's likely that, to use the classic TabletopGame/DungeonsAndDragons metaphor, he's high intelligence, low wisdom (and [[JerkWithAHeartOfGold charisma]]).



* YouCantGoHomeAgain

to:

* YouCantGoHomeAgainYouCantGoHomeAgain: Because it's in a different universe. He's working on finding a solution when he dies.


Added DiffLines:

* YouCantGoHomeAgain: Traken is destroyed by the universal entropy caused by the Master's meddling in "[[Recap/DoctorWhoS18E7Logopolis Logopolis]]."

** To be fair though, Jamie was from the year 1745, and Victoria from 1866, while Katarina is from the time of the Trojan War (roughly 1200BC). In Katarina's case, the technological and societal gap was just too great...

* AudienceSurrogate: WordOfGod has it that she existed so that younger viewers could relate to her.



* CheerfulChild: She has a tendency to act younger than her apparent age, probably because she is ''extremely'' young by Time Lord standards, and can't resist a giggle even at the most inappropriate times. For example, she laughs at the way one of her Dalek captors says her name in "[[{{Recap/DoctorWhoS1E2TheDaleks}} The Daleks]]".

* TheAtoner: After she kills her own brother and realizes she has worked for the BigBad all along, leads to her transitioning into a more normal ActionGirl.
** The novelisation of the story makes this a big part of her character. She is haunted by nightmares of her brother's final moments and continually beats herself up over the fact that she blindly believed Mavic Chen when he said that Bret was a traitor. While she does genuinely want to stop the Daleks and Mavic Chen from destroying the universe, a major secondary reason is that she doesn't want the death of Bret to be in vain.
