* InternalHomage: A nod to the extremely long-running DoctorWhoExpandedUniverse companion Characters/BerniceSummerfield, another professor of archaeology who keeps a diary about the Doctor. Creator/StevenMoffat wrote for the Franchise/BerniceSummerfield franchise before becoming the ShowRunner for the TV series. (He also jokingly suggested that River and Bernice had totally gotten married at some point, which immediately got a big thumbs-up from Benny's creator Paul Cornell. It's worth noting that "The Husbands of River Song" establishes that she has married women at least twice...)

Added DiffLines:

* ToxicFriendInfluence: A downplayed example. While not intentional, it was at times suggested throughout the second series that, having himself become a bit more arrogant, cocky and hubristic, the Tenth Doctor was not always the best influence on Rose, and that she similarly started to become increasingly arrogant, reckless and cocky to try and impress him. It was also suggested that Rose was becoming increasingly co-dependent on the Doctor to the degree that she was gradually isolating herself from everything and everyone else in her life.

Added DiffLines:

* LiteralMinded: Does not understand that "restroom" and "little boy's room" are euphemisms for the same thing.


Added DiffLines:

* ManChild: Has shades of this considering his primary outfit is a duffle coat (usually worn by small children) and he uses the term "little boy's room".

* StraightManAndWiseGuy: Seems to have this dynamic with Twelve, who has to work not to crack a smile while explaining how much trouble they're in.

Added DiffLines:

* RunningGag: Subverted. When meeting the Doctor for the first time, she asks "Doctor what?", rather than "[[TitleDrop Doctor who]]?"

* MoralityPet: This Doctor knows all too well by the time of "The Return of Doctor Mysterio" that he needs companions to serve as this and keep him from getting lonesome, so after he says his final goodbye to River he "reassembles" Nardole and takes him on.

* {{Cloudcuckoolander}}: Compared to most other companions.

to:

* {{Cloudcuckoolander}}: Compared to most other companions. Other companions would've probably panicked when the Doctor, say, set a villain's bomb on a course for a city. Nardole's response is to say that he ''knows'' that the Doctor has been through a lot, but couldn't he think of another way to express it?
