** The villain of "Evening's Empire" is a repugnant, misogynistic, nerdy serial rapist who abducts random women to an alternate universe to be his slavegirls. Said universe is explicitly based on his genre-fiction reading, and is an unsubtle parody of the notoriously BDSM-themed ''Literature/{{Gor}}'' series.

** 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/TheDayTheEarthStoodStill1951 Klaatu Barada Nikto!]]" while flashing a [[Series/StarTrek Vulcan salute]].

* DramaticIrony: In the final scene of Clara's final story, she says that teachers don't need to be remembered, they just need to know they made a difference. The Doctor replies that he's sure Clara's pupils will never forget her, "I know ''I'' never will."

* 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.
