The Doctor appears to be a rare exception.

* In the [[WesternAnimation/Chowder]] episode, Chowder's Catering Company, after Schnitzel walks in on Chowder disobeying one of Mung's orders, Chowder knocks him out with a shovel and hides him in a pickle barrel. When Mung sees Chowder with the pickle barrel (Note: Mung doesn't know that Schnitzel is in the barrel.), he knocks him out as well. Then Truffles comes in, he knocks her out as well. Fortunately, Chowder lets them all out just as he's about to throw them down a pit.

Likewise Vader's coverup of his attack on Leia's ship in "Star Wars"
Added DiffLines:
** Likewise, after Darth Vader attacks Leia's ship (a ship containing an emissary of the Galactic Senate), he orders a subordinate, "Send a distress signal, and inform the Senate that all on board were killed." Presumably he wanted to make it look like the ship was destroyed by random piracy, and left nobody alive who could contradict that story.
