* Between bellowing about "attack eyebrows" and flirting with a Tyrannosaur, Creator/PeterCapaldi has made his debut in suitably hammy fashion. Given just ''who'' Capaldi is, this is not a surprise in the slightest.

However, TropesAreNotBad, as she manages to be simultaneously hammy, [[CrowningMomentOfAwesome awesome]] ''and'' [[CrowningMomentOfHeartwarming heartwarming]]. -->''Raggedy man, I remember you, and'' '''YOU ARE LATE FOR MY WEDDING-A!''' * River Song. While Creator/AlexKingston tends to be a little more kosher than most ''Who'' actors, she appears to be having a little more fun with the character. -->"It's like I told you on the dance floor... You might want to find something to hang onto." ** "Let's Kill Hitler" features River at her hammiest, [[spoiler: because EvilIsHammy!]] * Donna Noble, fastest HAM in Chiswick. ** Her time From Big Finish's ''[[Series/StarTrekDeepSpaceNine Deep Space Nine]]'' parody "Bang-Bang-A-Boom!", Patricia Quinn of ''Film/TheRockyHorrorPictureShow'' fame as the [=DoctorDonna=] transformed Donna into one of outrageous Queen Angvia, the best examples of a female LargeHam, resulting in a bit of [[GreenSkinnedSpaceBabe Green Skinned Space]]... [[BrawnHilda Valkyrie]]. Her HamToHamCombat between her and David Tennant and a truly amazing David Tennant impersonation. It would have been truly awesome if not for how it [[{{Tearjerker}} ended]]. with Creator/SylvesterMcCoy is ''marvellous''. --> "''Ze Universe can VAIT!'' '''I AM A VOMAN!!!'''" * Son Of Mine, Big Finish's remake of "[[Recap/DoctorWhoS17E6Shada Shada]]" features an incredibly Hammy turn from "Human Nature" / Andrew Sachs of ''Series/FawltyTowers'' fame as the [[SissyVillain hysterically camp]] BigBad Skagra. -->"''REMOVE'' all the contents of his ''MIND?'' Why not? [[EvilLaugh Muah-ha-ha!]] ''[[EvilLaugh Muah-HA-HA!]]'' '''[[UpToEleven AH-HAH-HA-HA-HAAAA!]]'''" ** Hell, Sachs even gives ''Adric'' a pretty hamtastic upgrade while voicing his [[NotGoodWithPeople crazy-old-man/scorpion-king]]/[[AGodAmI God-Mode]] self (yes, [[ItMakesSenseInContext you read that right]]) in "The Family of Blood". Considering his other modes of speaking are CreepyMonotone and Goddamn Unsettling Sing-Song, this is one of the few times where straight up hamming comes as a ''relief.'' --> '''"JUST SHUT UP STOP TALKING CEASE AND DESIST THERE'S A GOOD GIRL!"''' * The Wire, from the episode "The Idiot's Lantern", really rates a Boy That Time Forgot". ---> '''Adric:''' "THAT'S NOT ENOUGH! ''[[LoveMakesYouCrazy I need you to LOVE me, Nyssa!]]"'' ** Special mention here. --> '''"FEEEEEEEEED MEEEEEEEEEEE!!!"''' * Between his wardrobe, mannerisms and obsession with fine dining, one-off villain Shockeye from "The Two Doctors" is one of the hammiest characters ever to appear. --> "YOU CANNOT ESCAPE SHOCKEYE O' THE QUANCING GRIG!" * In the 1980s, the Cyber Leader, despite being supposedly emotionless, delivers some of the hammiest lines for Sachs as Crassostrea in the history of the show. -->"DESTROY THEM! DESTROY THEM AT ONCE!" -->"''Eeeexcellent!''" -->"MOOORE POWERR!" -->"My army awaits, DOCTOR!" * Sutekh in "Pyramids of Mars" Big Finish story "Orbis", who vividly describes how he has to gorge on food and the ''Literature/FactionParadox'' audio series manages develop female organs so he can SPAAAAWWWN. He then proceeds to be invade a LargeHam while speaking nation of jellyfish and give birth, in barely more than a whisper. This was lampooned in the DVD extra "Oh Mummy!", in which Sutekh (still voiced by Gabriel Woolfe) attempts to find work after "Pyramids glorious explosion of Mars", featuring a truly unforgettable gag in which Sutekh shows the "documentary" crew his cute little bunnyrabbit. "I call him Neil. Neil. '''NEIL BEFORE THE MIGHT OF SUTEKH!'''"ham.

* The Sontarans, being a race of BloodKnight SuperSoldier Potato Dwarf Clones who live for war, are not to be outdone in the Ham front. ''Especially'' Strax, a Sontaran nurse/butler who serves as TheComicallySerious. * The Ice Warrior Skaldak in "Cold War": --> '''Skaldak:''' My planet is dead, but a new Red Planet will rise... '''REEEEEED WITH THE BLOOOOD OF HUMANITYYYYYY!!'''

* Azal, the LastOfHisKind Daemon from "The Daemons", continuously bellows every single word he speaks with a fierce, echoing voice. Sometimes, he even froths at the mouth. * Though best known for playing the CreepyMonotone Nyder, Peter Miles delivers an astounding amount of ham as Dr Lawrence in "The Silurians". In his final scene, he goes from zero to screeching in a matter of seconds. * Robin Hood. Boisterous and hammy. Especially the over the top laughter, which he performs about 10 times before the episode is over. ** And he's alongside the Twelfth Doctor. It's a miracle there was any intact scenery by episode's end. * British comedian [[Series/TheThickOfIt Chris]] [[Series/MockTheWeek Addison]] as Seb. --> ''[[TheKnightsWhoSaySquee Permission to squeeeeeeeeeee!]]''

* Irongron in "The Time Warrior" is barely capable of getting through a sentence without both bellowing and erupting into guffaws of boisterous laughter. Combine that with Robert Holmes' SesquipedalianLoquaciousness, a bit of EvilIsHammy and some manly backslapping and the effects are almost Pythonesque.
