* {{Biodata}}: It's a recurrent theme in the novels, especially the ones involving Faction Paradox, where it serves as a sci-fi counterpart to BloodMagic.

* NarrativeProfanityFilter: Occasionally applies to [[SirSwearsALot Fitz's]] cursing. In ''[[Recap/EighthDoctorAdventuresTheBlueAngel The Blue Angel]]'' the Doctor is said to have "swore profusely" at one point, which is a bit shocking considering the fact later books have him say "[[GoshdangItToHeck sugarmice]]" rather than swear or specifically note that the only reason he's using fairly mild vulgarity ("arse" and "wankerish") is that Fitz is a bad influence.

Absurdly Youthful Mother has been made into a supertrope. Wicks will be moved to subtropes where appropriate.
* AbsurdlyYouthfulMother: Or actually father. Caused primarily by time travel. [[spoiler:The Doctor is reunited with his daughter Miranda when she's caught up to his [[ReallySevenHundredYearsOld apparent age]] and seems to have more grey hair than he does.]]

* DenserAndWackier: In relation to the TV series: more {{Talking Animal}}s, more breaches of the laws of physics for cheap tricks, more {{McDonalds}}es in AncientEgypt, more {{Badass Normal}}s who do things that seem like they [[AWizardDidIt should involve a wizard somewhere]], more RuleOfFunny, and far, far more MetaFiction. Yet it still manages to be ''at least'' as serious, in other ways, as the TV series.

->''Break, damn you! Break! You've never had a [[SpannerInTheWorks spanner like this thrown in you]]! Chew on me till your teeth crack. Grind me up till your gears lock. I'm the nail in your tyre, the potato jammed in your exhaust pipe, the treacle poured in your petrol tank. I'm the banana peel beneath your foot, the joker that ruins your straight flush, the coin that always comes up heads and the gun you didn't know was loaded. I am the '''Doctor'''!''

misuse — Real Dreams Are Weirder is about weird ordinary dreams being contrasted with sensible magical or metaphorical dreams, not just about the fact that dreams are generally weird
* GainaxEnding: Is the ending of ''The Blue Angel'' symbolic, or just a [[RealDreamsAreWeirder Real Hallucinations Are Weirder]] sort of thing? And how much of it is real?

** Sam(antha) Jones, who's also a queer rights activist. The earliest chronological reference to her sexuality is in "Bounty", where the Doctor suggests a game of "never have I ever" and gets her to confess she's snogged a female friend of hers. There's also a blink-and-you'll-miss-it reference to her playing kinky bedroom games with a female character in ''Seeing I''.

* [[WagTheDirector Wag the Conductor]]: In ''The Year of Intelligent Tigers'', the Doctor joins an orchestra as first violinist. He is ''very'' gifted, but becomes a massive diva, eventually playing a solo over 100 bars long. It was supposed to be ''24''. He only stops when his violin strings break. The rest of the orchestra is ''not'' pleased. After being called out for his antics, he tells the conductor-composer that ''he'' doesn't understand the music because he's human. Then the Doctor throws the music sheets into the air, smashes his violin, and flounces off.

Please actually read the trope description before writing the example instead of trying to guess what the trope is based on its name.
* ABloodyMess: Honestly, it's hard to find a book ''without'' some kind of blood bath in it. Especially centered on the Doctor.
