* ''Series/{{Accused}}'': Kenny's friends were equally guilty, but the only evidence against them is Kenny's confession, so the jury acquits them. Alison's husband isn't arrested for raping her, as she didn't report it, but is for other crimes. Tina's rapist is also not arrested for the same reasons.

** Professor Sorenson from "[[DoctorWhoS13E2PlanetOfEvil Planet of Evil]]", an AccidentalMadScientist who tried to harvest anti-matter as a fuel source. In the process, he upset an anti-matter creature who wiped out his entire expedition bar him and then most of the rescue team that came to pick him up. He still insists his plan will save his people and make him famous, even though he's been infected by anti-matter and keeps turning into a ravening beast that kills most of the rest of the rescue team that came to pick him up. He pins the blame on the Doctor and Sarah, nearly getting them executed, and breaks a deal the Doctor made with the anti-matter creature by smuggling anti-matter on board their ship, nearly causing it to crash. In the end...he gets cured and gets to go home with the few people he hasn't got killed, with the Doctor setting him off on a different form of research so he'll probably end up famous and celebrated.

** Ashildr/Me (Creator/MaisieWilliams) from the Series 9 StoryArc. The Doctor saves the Viking lass from the grave in "The Girl Who Died", but the only way he can do so also renders her functionally immortal. She becomes embittered and occasionally villainous as centuries pass thanks to TheFogOfAges, WhoWantsToLiveForever, and the Doctor's choice not to take her on as a companion lest they ''both'' become exemplars of ImmortalityImmorality, but he works to keep her on the right path, having faith that she isn't completely heartless. In "Face the Raven" (set in 2015) she's an AntiVillain who agrees to trap the Doctor for the Time Lords -- via a plot that ends up accidentally claiming his beloved Clara Oswald's life, which angers the Doctor even more than the betrayal does; it's only Clara's demands that keep him from destroying her and the trap street then and there. The grieving Doctor subsequently endures more-or-less solitary confinement and torture that induces a SanitySlippage; he escapes as a WoobieDestroyerOfWorlds desperate to save Clara's life [[TheUnfettered by any means]]. In the process, he and Ashildr meet at the end of the universe's existence, she having outlived everything else. He's still bitter, she won't apologize or atone...yet rather than just leave her to die alone, he lets her follow him -- ''with no explanation'' -- onto TARDIS 2.0. In the denouement, the Doctor repents, is mind-wiped of his most important memories of Clara, and left alone with his old TARDIS. Ashildr becomes the now-functionally immortal Clara's companion in the second TARDIS, Clara completely forgiving her actions! Defenders argue she's a case of EarnYourHappyEnding because she was forced to endure TheSlowPath for eons thanks to the Doctor's good intentions going awry, but others feel she merely profited off of the Doctor's suffering and loss.

** James Horton gets a bit of this, despite Duncan finally killing him off for real. When he was starting his anti-Immortal crusade, he killed Immortal Irena Galati right by her Immortal husband, his rage and Quickening enabling his escape. From this Horton learned to kill his targets only when there were no other Immortals around. Jacob Galati began stalking and killing all Watchers, not differentiating them from The Hunters. This slaughter causes the Watchers' Tribunal to call Joe Dawson on the carpet, blaming his telling Duncan Macleod about their existence for their being compromised. So not only does Horton strike from beyond the grave, he gets Joe in trouble yet again, and to make matters worse, the Tribunal focuses entirely on Joe's actions, and most of all his original reveal to Macleod. This, despite the fact that Duncan would have never known they were being watched by anyone were it not for Horton. But in the Tribunal, Joe is tried and sentenced to death, with the Tribunal repeatedly ignoring any talk of Horton's role in this. Dead? Definitely? In Hell? Maybe. But until Joe cleans house soon after, an on-the-record Karma Houdini.

** Partly the case for the two Ferengi, who ended up in the Delta Quadrant by way of an unstable wormhole back in ''TNG''. They set themselves up as the prophesied Sages of a primitive civilization, reshaping it to Ferengi standards and profiting immensely. At the end of the episode, not only do they prevent the ''Voyager'' from returning home through that same wormhole, but they end up going through it themselves. While it's true that they want to go back to the planet and rule the people, the people are sick and tired of them and would likely try to burn them at the stake again. Yep, they're alive and get to go home, while the ''Voyager'' has to take the long way back.

This ''may'' be averted, since their entry into the wormhole makes it even more unstable and it isn't entirely clear exactly where they ended up.

** Bonnie the Zygon in "The Zygon Inversion", who leads a vicious Zygon uprising against humanity which leads to the loss of several lives on both sides, but basically gets let go with a stern lecture from the Doctor. [[spoiler: She even becomes the replacement second Osgood]]. This is arguably part of the point of the episode, however; while it might be satisfying to see her get some form of punishment to satisfy some idea of karma and justice, ultimately forgiveness is the healthier option and breaking the cycle of violence, resentment and retribution that the characters had all become locked in has to start somewhere.
