* 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.

* 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.
* Aris from "Kinda", when he gets taken over by the Mara and is granted the gift of speech (and Ham).
-->'''Aris:''' I still control them! ''I am Aris''! I. HAVE. VOICE!\\
'''Fifth Doctor:''' YES, SO I HEAR!
* Creator/BrianBlessed as Yrcanos in "Mindwarp".
-->"''Today, prudence shall be our watchword. Tomorrow, I shall soak the land in blood''!"\\
"'''VAROOOOOOOOONIIIIIIIIIK!'''"



* 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.

* Not to be outdone by his arch-nemesis, The Master is always a prime source of Ham. Really, ''any'' incarnation of the Master who doesn't rattle the heavens and leave teeth marks on the scenery through the sheer force of their acting is just flat-out doing it wrong.
** The Master of [[Recap/DoctorWhoS14E3TheDeadlyAssassin "The Deadly Assassin"]] is one of the hammiest characters in all of ''Doctor Who''.
--->'''The Master:''' Ya '''CRAVEN'''-'Earteeeed... SPINE-less... POLTROON!
** Anthony Ainley's Master:
*** On playing the Master: "I'm not a ham. You can ''cure'' a ham!"
*** Speaking of his incarnation of the Master, Peri parodies this trope with him in "Planet of Fire":
---->'''The Master:''' I am the Master!\\

** Creator/DerekJacobi during the last ten minutes of his performance in the episode "Utopia".

** Creator/JohnSimm's Master:
*** Four words. "Here! Come! The Drums!" Cue "Voodoo Child" by Rogue Traders.
*** Not to mention that the first minutes of "Last of the Time Lords" (the episode that follows that whole "Here Come The Drums" thing) is the Master singing "I Can't Decide" by Scissor Sisters.
*** When he returns in "The End of Time":
---->'''The Master:''' '''''[[ImAHumanitarian DINNERTIIIIIIIIIIIIME!!!!!]]'''''
** Michelle Gomez' Missy is a ''delightful'' ham. Her lines in "Deep Breath" stand out, drawing out the word "Paradise" as "PARADIIIISSSSE", then subduing her performance to provide a sharp, unnervingly dark contrast as she says, "Welcome... to Heaven." Followed by a quick pivot back to ham with a guttural snarl and a click of the teeth, then a Mary Poppins-esque twirl around a stone garden fixture while swinging an umbrella around. By the time the show reaches "Death In Heaven", she actually reveals herself to have been ''holding back on the ham'' up until that point, and goes ''all out''. Also:
