* George Litefoot in Big Finish is AmbiguouslyGay. At one point he talks fondly of a lost love, without specifying the person's gender, in a way that rather strongly hints at his love having been male. In a later audio, in which everyone is talking about very personal and emotional moments, he recounts a story of trying in vain to impress a classmate named Ralph while at university. He's the first to recognise that one of the villains they encounter is gay, and explains to Jago that this is a case of the love that dare not speak its name -- as well as stating that he hopes the love may one day not be a taboo. He's quick to acknowledge when young men who cross their path are handsome, but doesn't seem to notice the women at all. He shelters Ellie in his house without even considering the social implications of an unmarried woman living with him. And his encounter with Music/MauriceRavel (as well as the... more complicated situation between Ravel and the villain of the week) is really, blatantly romantic.

Additionally, his description of the Doctor in "The Jago & Litefoot Revival", complete with emotional music in the background, speaks volumes.

Where to begin with Fitz Kreiner and the Eighth Doctor from the Literature/EighthDoctorAdventures... Over the course of their fifty-something books together, they become [[BiTheWay Not-So-]][[HeterosexualLifePartners Heterosexual Life Partners]]. [=EDAs=] can be divided up into "Fitz and the Doctor are rather gay for each other" books and "Fitz and the Doctor are ''really'' gay for each other" books. This is all massively confusing for Fitz, who sort of identifies as straight and has a ''number'' of issues with suddenly being in love with an alien bloke. A ''few'' examples:

* In "Terror of the Autons" (the Master's very first appearance), the Master isn't at all surprised that the Doctor survived his first two attempts to kill him, and refers to them as the opening salvos in their "game". This begins a trend apparent all throughout Roger Delgado's tenure, with the Master treating their constant battling as more of a friendly rivalry.

* The Master caring for the Doctor in "The Mind of Evil", after the Keller machine nearly kills him, is straight out of a HurtComfortFic. Again this starts a trend in which while he continually tries to kill him, the Master always believes the Doctor will survive and doesn't actually want him gone.
* "Colony in Space" has the Master offer the Doctor [[WeCanRuleTogether the opportunity to rule the entire cosmos]]... for seemingly no reason whatsoever, as he doesn't need the Doctor's help. After the Doctor (predictably) refuses, the Master becomes unreasonably angry, implying that he genuinely wanted the Doctor to rule side by side with him.
* "The Sea Devils" has the Master admit that the only reason he keeps trying to destroy Earth is because it's the Doctor's favourite planet. This is part of yet another larger trend in which the Master deliberately targets Earth to infuriate the Doctor, much like a young boy pulling the hair of a girl they like because they don't know how else to express what they're feeling.
* In "The Five Doctors", the Master openly states that "a cosmos without the Doctor scarcely bears thinking about", further supporting the idea that he never truly intends to kill the Doctor. He's genuinely nice to the Doctor throughout the entire episode, though the Doctor sadly doesn't believe him, and is very miffed when One doesn't recognise him from their Academy days (what with him having a new, stolen body).

* "The King's Demons" is swimming in HoYay, starting with a very suggestive sword fight between Five and Ainley, and culminating in the Master's revelation that he has a robot that he can transform into the Doctor by sheer force of will. Rather than be weirded out, the Doctor uses his own psychic energy to transform said robot to look like the Master. They spend a few minutes simply playing with their new toy, turning it into each other while giving each other long closeup looks.

* On two separate occasions ("The Keeper of Traken" and the MadeForTVMovie), the Master tries to [[GrandTheftMe steal the Doctor's body]]; he literally wants to be inside the Doctor. The former plays this very sexually, with the Master at one point toying with the ends of the Doctor's long curly hair, while the latter has this line "This body will soon decay.

* "The Sound of Drums" couldn't have stretched the subtext thinner, with a phone conversation that is, in between explaining how the Master survived the Time War, basically the Doctor trying to persuade the Master to have a long term relationship with him and the Master trying to get the Doctor to have phone sex with him. It's so strong that the Master needs to lampshade it, mockingly asking "Are you asking me out on a ''date''?".

** The previous episode, "Utopia", has a similar exchange ("Use my name." "''Master''.") that wouldn't be out of place in a BDSM session.

Particularly, the last ten minutes or so, what with [[spoiler:the Master [[DeathIsCheap 'dying']] [[DiedInYourArmsTonight in the Doctor's arms]]]]. And right before this, the Doctor reveals that the only safe place in the universe to keep the Master is... the TARDIS.

* "The End of Time" part one gives us the chase through the scrapyard, complete with piercing stares and heavy panting, the Master zapping the Doctor with his new electricity powers and the Doctor writhing in pain. And when the Master actually ''hits'' the Doctor, he stops attacking and runs over to make sure he's okay. The two reminisce about them playing in fields on Gallifrey as children, before the Master becomes rather insistent that the Doctor ''must understand him'', taking it so far as to initiate a mindmeld.

* The Alex Macqueen incarnation of the Master, also in Creator/BigFinish, is ''by far'' the campest one of them all -- while still being very, very sinister. His plans for Seven involve merging the both of them into a single being, with Seven's mind as a slave to his own, so they can rule the galaxy together for all of eternity. (He fails, of course.) When he finally meets Eight, he spends a while simply admiring the Doctor's beauty, making appreciative noises and commenting on his hair.

* In "Dark Water", [[spoiler:the Master (well, [[GenderBender Mistress]])]] finally pushes the Doctor up against a wall and snogs him completely senseless. And, being very fond of little games, she offers a snog to Clara as well. She says her heart belongs to the Doctor, teases that her heart is maintained by the Doctor, and clues him in on her [[spoiler:double heartbeat]] by putting his hand on her chest. In the next episode, "Death In Heaven", she tries to ''give him the army she's just spent centuries making'', offering it to him in a desperate attempt to repair their friendship. When the Doctor realises just how utterly broken she is -- and how much he needs her too, just as a reminder of what he's ''not'' -- he [[spoiler: gets down on his knees to gently kiss her on the lips in return]]. Even though [[spoiler:the Master happens to be female at this point]], the arc retroactively canonises several decades of HoYay.

** And then in "Cold Blood" Rory [[spoiler:dies to save Eleven]]. Which is followed by Eleven telling Amy to [[spoiler:remember "funny, gorgeous Rory"]].

** In "The Power of Three", the Doctor looks ''very'' happily at Rory in his underpants. Rory also kisses the Doctor on the cheek in the episode. Just casually. Eleven makes a very happy "oooh!" sound.
* The very first episode of Eleven's tenure has him borrowing a [[MrFanservice hunky guy]]'s laptop, and later in the episode he refers to him as "Amy's friend... the good-looking one". It helps that Jeff seems perfectly happy to let the Doctor get all in his personal space. In fact, cut dialog from that scene even has Jeff's grandmother asking (of the Doctor) "Jeff, is he your gay friend?" despite protests from Jeff that he isn't gay.

** In that same episode, Eleven kept running an appreciative eye over Bill Nighy as a museum curator because he likes his bow ties.
* "The Lodger" is pretty much a mass of Ho Yay directed at Craig. Eleven strokes him constantly, displays a complete disregard for his personal space and grabbed him at at least one point (although that was for the purposes of telepathy). The Ho Yay of this episode peaked with Eleven stroking Craig's face when he was poisoned and incapacitated, and tenderly saying "You're important". Not to mention Eleven's lack of hesitation in approaching both Craig and Sophie while wearing only a towel.
** Absolutely off the charts in "Closing Time"; the Doctor plus Craig plus a baby adds up to make the episode one long, unbroken MistakenForGay sequence, and that's not counting the bit where the Doctor attempts to distract Craig from the approaching [[spoiler:Cybermen]] by declaring his passionate love for him and attempting to kiss him to prove it. Craig's only objection, by the way, is that he is already in a relationship.

* Nyssa's gentle fretting and care for Tegan in "Snakedance" edges a great deal past mere friendly concern.
* Nyssa is deeply upset when the Doctor leaves Tegan behind without warning in "Time-Flight", insisting they shouldn't have just left her.
* In "Arc of Infinity" Nyssa's priorities pull a 180 from worrying about the Doctor to wanting to hear every detail about Tegan the moment they hear from her. She's very quick to pull Tegan firmly back onto the team when she turns up again, and nearly throws a fit when the Doctor is about to venture into the Matrix to find [[spoiler:Omega]]'s location from Tegan, on the grounds that she might be killed. The next time she sees the Doctor, she won't even ''look at him'' until he tells her Tegan is all right.
* "Black Orchid" has this in spades. Tegan cheerfully demonstrates the Charleston for Nyssa. Tegan can tell [[IdenticalStranger Ann and Nyssa]] apart and is insufferably smug about this. (Context: In a discussion between Ann and Nyssa we learn that the only visible difference is ''a mole on Ann's chest'', which isn't visible even in a relatively low-cut butterfly dress.)

* "Mawdryn Undead" is basically Nyssa and Tegan being married while trying to keep an eye on a bumbling, overgrown alien schoolboy (and Turlough). When not-actually-the-Doctor tries to order Nyssa to dematerialize without Tegan (again), she only argues for a minute... and then walks defiantly out of the TARDIS.

For that matter, Tegan's very real fear when she realizes she just left her best friend alone with a stranger who probably isn't the Doctor, upon which she runs back to the TARDIS. The sheer ''relief'' in her voice when she finds Nyssa safe and waiting for them...
* While the rest is [[{{Tearjerker}} agonizingly painful]], "Terminus" has its moments.

Lots of longing glances, and thoroughly unnecessary compliments of the Doctor, such as one bit where he says something along the lines of "Oh, Doctor, your handwriting is just lovely", in this really quite suggestive way. Not to mention his persistent daddy issues with just about any powerful male figure the team encounters, evil or not. (Not really relevant, but his actor Matthew Waterhouse is gay.)

Cast in these roles, they realise their love is forbidden, but they're hopelessly stuck in a WorldLimitedToThePlot and spend their moments together in the GroundhogDayLoop as a married couple... and stay lovers once they escape. And yes, they actually bang. (There's also a brief moment where Alexander the Great refers to a version of Ian as his "beloved", but good luck figuring out where it fits into all the rest of the MindScrew. The original commissioned pitch for the novel made it clear that Alexander had fallen in love with Ian.)

* George Litefoot in Big Finish is AmbiguouslyGay. At one point he talks fondly of a lost love, without specifying the person's gender, in a way that rather strongly hints at his love having been male. In a later audio, in which everyone is talking about very personal and emotional moments, he recounts a story of trying in vain to impress a classmate named Ralph while at university. He's the first to recognise that one of the villains they encounter is gay, and explains to Jago that this is a case of the love that dare not speak its name -- as well as stating that he hopes the love may one day not be a taboo. He's quick to acknowledge when young men who cross their path are handsome, but doesn't seem to notice the women at all. And he shelters Ellie in his house without even considering the social implications of an unmarried woman living with him.
