* HoistByHisOwnPetard: A fortunately-averted example. The villain of [[spoiler:"The Blood of Azrael"]] intends to wipe out all non-Terran life throughout history. Readers will be able to conclude, although he didn't know, that since there has been so much interference in the Whoniverse Earth's early history by aliens, he would probably end up erasing the human race, at least as he knew it, from history as well.

* The Comic Strip: Part of the Franchise/DoctorWhoExpandedUniverse. Has featured all the Doctors at some point (the current Doctor has always starred whilst the show was being broadcast; during the 1989-1996 hiatus, the strip published Seventh Doctor comics until 1994, and then stories featuring various Doctors until the Eighth Doctor's run started). Its stories vary in length, content and creative style, much like the show itself. Aside from the regular companions, the comic has introduced a variety of new ones to the Franchise/{{Whoniverse}}, such as Frobisher (a shape-shifting penguin), Izzy, and the rather forgotten Sharon, the first non-white companion (the {{Tie In Novel}}s also had non-white companions before the arrival of Mickey Smith). The majority of the strips are available in book compilations (although several are out of print).

* CanonDiscontinuity: Following ''Series/DoctorWho''[='=]s initial cancellation in 1989, the strip continued publishing Seventh Doctor stories that later began to share a continuity with the Virgin Publishing Literature/DoctorWhoNewAdventures novel series, featuring book companion Characters/BerniceSummerfield, and a notably older Ace. In 1994, however, the DWM editor decided to break with NA continuity, and proceeded to do so by killing off a notably ''younger'' Ace in "Ground Zero", making the NA tie-ins Discontinuity. (However, the Tenth Doctor strips have made [[ContinuityNod reference]] to strips both before and after the break.)

** Izzy, being a geek, does this a lot. In the first installment of "Fire & Brimstone", she starts off rhapsodising about these books she's reading featuring "[[Literature/{{Discworld}} this mad city called Ankh-Morpork]]" (the Doctor says he's ''been there'') and then, when they encounter the residents of the space station Icarus Falling, declares "[[Film/TheDayTheEarthStoodStill Klaatu Barada Nikto!]]" while flashing a [[Series/StarTrek Vulcan salute]].
