* HarsherInHindsight: Invoked in-universe. The ending of "Witch Hunt" has the Doctor tell Clara that neither her students nor he will ever forget her. This comic ran several months after the Series 9 finale "Hell Bent", in which [[spoiler: he ended up mind-wiped of memories of her; he ''does'' remember traveling with a woman named Clara but not how she looked, sounded, etc]]. ''Ouch.''

It's also spawned a few spinoffs, including a short-lived poster magazine spotlighting the series' monsters; ''Doctor Who Classic Comics'', which mainly reprinted pre-DWM Doctor Who comics; and ''Doctor Who Insider'', for North American fans. The current sister title is ''Doctor Who Adventures'', which originally launched in 2006, and was acquired by Panini in 2015; it's aimed at the show's kid fanbase, with a mix of activities, games, posters, short stories, episode recaps, and comics -- many written in-universe, such as the "Letter from the Doctor" that opens each issue. Its format is thus ''very'' similar to that of the early years of DWM.

* TakeThat: "The Stockbridge Showdown" has Josiah Dogbolter, the story's BigBad, standing against publicly owned media, believing that a tiny ultra-wealthy elite should control mass media (referencing the anti-BBC campaign by the tycoons of British media, most notably Rupert Murdoch). It also has a very unflattering caricature of British Prime Minister David Cameron as an obsequious condom-headed alien at Dogbolter's birthday party, thanking Dogbolter for helping him win the last election.

* TakeThat: TakeThat:
** One Tenth Doctor strip had a malevolent, bloodthirsty group of Warrior Race aliens abduct the Brigadier and attempt to abduct Mike Yates. However, they abducted a different Mike Yates, a ludicrous, unpleasant little man who was an unsuccessful far-right-wing politician and ended up allying with the aliens. In reality, Richard Franklin, who played the UNIT Mike Yates on TV, has had an unsuccessful political career with a succession of increasingly small and extreme right-wing fringe parties.

(The condom head was a deliberate Shout Out to Steve Bell's newspaper comic strip ''ComicStrip/{{If}}'', which does the same thing.)
