''Series/DoctorWho'', in all its myriad incarnations, is a bountiful supply of ham. It's one of the things that makes the series so fun.

* This especially fits Creator/TomBaker, who hams it up to almost Creator/BrianBlessed levels both in the show and off it. Apparently there's a gene in any person with the surname Baker that transforms them into concentrated ham when in the presence of a TARDIS. Creator/RobertHolmes once theorised that Tom Baker's extreme hamminess was part of the reason his tenure was recognised as being a show high point in terms of writing -- it forced the writers to create strongly defined, {{rounded|Character}} and [[WorldOfHam memorable]] supporting characters, because if they didn't, Tom would dominate completely.
** It's worth observing that, while the overall performance is extremely hammy, the ''character'' is shown to have an [[StylisticStuck even hammier]] acting style. We see him begin to act a little ''Macbeth'' in "Revenge of the Cybermen", and it's [[ChewingTheScenery pretty extreme]]. In "Invasion of Time" he's forced to pretend to be insane as part of a plan, which he uses as an excuse to lay it on thick with the EvilLaugh and SuddenlyShouting. And then there's the part where there's "[[Recap/DoctorWhoS16E6TheArmageddonFactor only my will because I possess the]] '''[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fq0WE_qmIUA&feature=related Key to Time!]]'''"''

* Sutekh in "Pyramids of Mars" manages to be a LargeHam while speaking 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 of Mars", featuring a truly unforgettable gag in which Sutekh shows the "documentary" crew his cute little bunnyrabbit.

* 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.
