** They previously shared a kiss in the [[ComicBook/DoctorWhoIDW IDW comics]], after the Doctor and Amy accidentally switched bodies. Rory [[SingleTargetSexuality doesn't even care]] that Amy has a different body and kisses her to reassure her... until he realises that they've already switched back to normal, and he just accidentally kissed the Doctor. (Amy asks them to do it again. [[YaoiFangirl Slower]].)

** Despite knowing the Doctor longer and having spent more time with him--all those adventures while Tegan was on Earth--Nyssa is able to remain calm and collected while saying goodbye to him, asking him politely not to be upset and to let her leave in good faith, to part as friends. Then she has to say goodbye to Tegan and breaks down ''sobbing'' into her chest.

* Writers Creator/PaulCornell, Gareth Roberts, Creator/RussellTDavies and Creator/StevenMoffat all merrily ship the Doctor with guys, and have all explicitly stated that the innuendo is very much on purpose. Moffat is of the opinion that the Doctor has been flirty with his male and female companions since ever, and that the Doctor, in fact, can't be bothered with silly human concepts of "gay" and "straight". He's also the guy who invented Captain Jack Harkness, and has casually stated that River Song was probably involved with her ''entire'' archaeology crew.

* And speaking of Alexander the Great, the AudioPlay/BigFinishDoctorWho episode "Farewell, Great Macedon" has some intense HoYay between Alexander and Hephaistion. Historians have yet to determine whether the two men were lovers or just best friends, and the audio deliberately leaves it ambiguous, presenting the word "love" and Hephaistion's (gorgeous) description of how much Alexander means to him as something that can mean either romance or friendship. (Since the audio was adapted from a script that never made it to TV, one can't help but wonder what the original looked like.)

* In the AudioPlay/BigFinishDoctorWho WhatIf episode [[spoiler: [[Recap/BigFinishDoctorWhoUnboundE2SympathyForTheDevil "Sympathy For The Devil"]]]], the Doctor and the Master meet in alternate regenerations, and the episode explores what would have happened if they'd never met in the 1970's ([[RunningGag or was it the 80's?]]). The HoYay is ''palpable''. This is also one of the times that the Master was played by an openly gay actor... namely, ''[[spoiler: MarkGatiss]]''.

* The Doctor continually curtailing of Jack's attempts to flirt with everyone they meet ([[OmniSexual male, female, or indeterminate]]) -- allegedly because otherwise they'd never get anything done. It often sounds more like someone's just jealous.

* In "[[Recap/DoctorWhoS27E11BoomTown Boom Town]]", Jack and the Doctor start pretty much openly flirting, to the point it seems silly to even list it here, because it's way beyond subtext, it's just text that they're flirting like mad with each other:

** This conversation was preceded by the Master scrambling for his phone (he'd had it in his pocket and on speaker) when he hears the Doctor's voice, holding it to his ear with an expression that looks somewhat like relief. Of course, he gets straight into setting off his next plot, but not before swallowing and quietly asking about Gallifrey.

* On two separate occasions ("[[Recap/DoctorWhoS18E6TheKeeperOfTraken The Keeper of Traken]]" and [[Recap/DoctorWhoTVMTheTVMovie]]), 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. I NEED THE DOCTOR'S BODY!"

* 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.

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."

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."

* Jean and Phyllis in "[[Recap/DoctorWhoS26E2TheCurseOfFenric The Curse of Fenric]]", who also seem rather determined to get Ace to join them early on, and after [[spoiler:they become [[OurVampiresAreDifferent Haemovores]]]] they tell her, "You should have come into the water with us. Then we'd have been together." This is another case where the novelisation goes a bit... deeper with things. Not only is there implied to be a past relationship between Millington and Judson as mentioned below, but it's pretty clear in the book that Jean and Phyllis were probably a couple as well, even before [[spoiler:their [[LesbianVampire transformation]]]].

The BOSS calls Stevens things like 'my little Superman' and Stevens' subplot is played very much like him dumping an abusive husband. The novelisation ramps up the subtext by having The BOSS quote Oscar Wilde and sing the Wedding March before asking Stevens, "Do you, Stevens, take this computer..."
