*** In-Verse nicknames used by ''the Doctor himself'' to reference and/or tease his other selves are also used by fans in a similar teasing manner. Hence, "Teeth and Curls" for Four (from "The Five Doctors"), "Dandy" and "Clown" for Three and Two respectively (from "The Three Doctors"), or multiple examples from "The Day of the Doctor" ("Sandshoes" or "Dick van Dyke" for Ten, "Chinny" for Eleven, "Granddad" for War).

*** "The [[Franchise/StarWars Grand Moff]]", "TGM" or "The Moff" - Creator/StevenMoffat, current executive producer. The latter is currently more popular in a poll on [[Website/OutpostGallifrey The Doctor Who Forum]]. According to Creator/KarenGillan in ''Magazine/DoctorWhoMagazine'', Steven himself tried to get "The Mofferator" to catch on. "Lord Steven of Moffat" has also been spotted. DWO Whocast and Staggering Stories Podcast use "Vast Toffee", an anagram of his name missing out two letters (MN, deemed to stand (clutching at straws) for "Master of Nightmares".)

* ''TheTudors'': Thomas Boleyn is generally referred to as Papa Boleyn. Henry VII (not a character, but still discussed) is Papa Tudor. Katherine Howard is often called Kitty, while the soon-to-appear Katherine Parr is called Kate. These last two seem to have historical basis and are also a way of telling the last two Katherines, who were wives five and six, apart - not to mention distinguishing them from wife number one, Katherine of Aragon.

*** "Historical"/"Pure historical" - a story format where they would go back in time and not encounter aliens, save for the time travellers themselves. Sometimes defined as 'no science fiction elements', but some are still science fiction stories in theme, like "The Aztecs" (which is about changing the past). Very much associated with the First Doctor and the show's EarlyInstallmentWeirdness in general, as the only non-Hartnell pure historicals are the Second Doctor's "[[Recap/DoctorWhoS4E4TheHighlanders The Highlanders]]" and the Fifth Doctor's "[[Recap/DoctorWhoS19E5BlackOrchid Black Orchid]]". The first historical was "[[Recap/DoctorWhoS1E1AnUnearthlyChild An Unearthly Child]]".
*** "Pseudohistorical" - they go back in time in Earth's history and encounter aliens. "[[Recap/DoctorWhoS2E9TheTimeMeddler The Time Meddler]]" is the first one.

*** "Reverse the polarity of the _____" -- whenever the Doctor just kind of fixes a thing by pointing his sonic screwdriver at it or by pulling some switches, and it's glossed over as to how (e.g. "At the end of "Love and Monsters" the Doctor reverses the polarity of the concrete"). From the third Doctor's [[BeamMeUpScotty imagined]] CatchPhrase "reverse the polarity of the neutron flow".
