* In [[Recap/BigFinishDoctorWho054TheNaturalHistoryOfFear Jim Mortimore]]'s novel ''[[http://doctorwho.org.nz/archive/campaign/ Campaign]]'', which was commissioned by the BBC and then immediately rejected for making ''[[Anime/NeonGenesisEvangelion End Of Evangelion]]'' look normal, the First Doctor's companions are thrust into different times and places. This includes Ian being thrown into the Great Fire of London, where he ''and'' an alternate version of him (Cliff, named for an early version of Ian when ''Doctor Who'' was first pitched) replace a blacksmith and his wife (originally from the novella "Doctor Who and the Invasion from Space"). 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.

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.

* In "Cabinet Of Changes", Philip Purser-Hallard's sequel to ''The Blue Angel'', the Blue Angel version of Compassion ends up with the Blue Angel version of Romana. (It was published in a charity anthology, so not sanctioned by the BBC, but Purser-Hallard is a Who author for licensed books as well.)

Aside from Eight's fascination with Fitz, he was also the first Doctor to be written as bisexual (or as ''anything''-sexual, really) and gets some more lovely moments in the books:
* Eight and UsefulNotes/AlanTuring--yes, ''that'' Alan Turing--have some absolutely intense HoYay in the Literature/EighthDoctorAdventures.
* Also, the Eighth Doctor and Karl from the EDA ''The Year Of Intelligent Tigers''. Quoth author Kate Orman:
--> "... still surprised that fans, on the whole, think Karl was in wuv with the Doctor but the Doctor didn't reciprocate. This is not unreasonable in light of canon, but, oh me oh my, I must be more subtle than I thought." [...] "The Doctor and Karl are at it like rabbits every time the reader isnít looking. However, the precise nature of their relationship is deliberately left ambiguous, so that the reader can interpret it as A) a passionate but platonic friendship or B) unrequited love on the part of Karl. However, I know the location of all the missing sex scenes." [...] "Well, there's the weight of 40 years of apparently sexless Doctor on their side; plus the relationship is *meant* to ambiguous, so people can interpret it to their comfort level. What surprises me is so few readers *do* think that Karl and the Doctor have to do some fast buttoning and zipping every time I cut back to them." [...] "I wanted to let readers decide for themselves what was happening between the [[strike:sheets]] pages, as a way of showing that you could do a love story for the Doctor with a bit of subtlety and gentleness."
** And Kate Orman being slightly less subtle:
--> "They blow each other every time the camera's off them."
* In the Creator/BigFinish printed story "The Feast of Seven... Eight (and Nine)" by Vanessa Bishop, from ''Short Trips: A Christmas Treasure'', Eight celebrates Christmas by... grabbing some mistletoe and trying to make out with all his former selves. He succeeds with Five and Three. And dreamily sighs about Puccini having such soft lips. And Seven gets offended by the whole thing and tells Eight that Six is "more that way inclined".

* Clara Oswald has shown romantic feelings for both the Eleventh Doctor and Danny Pink, but she also [[AmbiguouslyBi may or may not be attracted to women.]] Oswin, [[ItMakesSenseInContext a copy of Clara along the Doctor's timestream]], flirted with both Rory and Amy, and also casually mentioned a girl called Nina she had a crush on. Clara herself carries on Ace's tradition of getting very chummy with female guest stars; she compares Journey Blue in "Into the Dalek" to her future boyfriend Danny and got very close with Maisie in "Mummy on the Orient Express." There was also that time she asked the Eleventh Doctor to [[TheBeard pretend to be her boyfriend at her family's Christmas dinner.]]

* In its direct sequel "The Emporium At The End", part of the Franchise/BerniceSummerfield Big Finish range, Benny straight up asks the Master if he and the Doctor used to be lovers. At this point she doesn't even know that the man she's talking to is the Master -- the HoYay is just ''that'' blatant.

Basically the OneTruePairing of the series, second only to Doctor/TARDIS (if only because those two have much more screen time together). ChildhoodFriends and fellow students from their youth on Gallifrey, some unknown reason caused a falling out between them. Though one seeks to explore and the other to conquer, their friendship [[FriendlyEnemy still exists despite their enmity]]. Creator/RussellTDavies, Creator/StevenMoffat and Creator/PaulCornell ''all'' ship it, and their feelings towards and obsession with each other had been the subject of much speculation for decades before gradually becoming explicitly romantic in the show. See also [[FoeYay/DoctorWho the Foe Yay page]].
