** A skit where Creator/LennyHenry plays the Doctor uses this to set up an ObligatoryJoke.
-->'''The Doctor:''' I [DramaticPause] am the Doctor.
-->'''Homeless bum:''' Great, because I've got this really nasty rash on my back...
-->'''The Doctor:''' Not that kind of doctor -- THE Doctor.
-->'''Homeless bum:''' Doctor what?
-->'''The Doctor:''' That's near enough...

** Ironically in "The Husbands of River Song", River mistakes the Doctor for an actual doctor, being unaware that he's regenerated (and she was expecting a medical doctor at the time).

* Doctors [[Series/StarTrekTheOriginalSeries McCoy]], [[Series/StarTrekTheNextGeneration Crusher, Pulaski]], [[Series/StarTrekDeepSpaceNine Bashir]], [[Series/StarTrekVoyager Placeholder]], and [[Series/StarTrekEnterprise Phlox]] are definitely that kind of doctor. To emphasize the MildlyMilitary nature of Starfleet, it is apparently ''not'' appropriate to address them by their rank (if any). Further, as a psychiatrist, Deanna Troi is likely a Doctor as well, ''sort of'' that kind.

* It was revealed in VideoGame/PokerNightAtTheInventory that [[VideoGame/TeamFortress2 The Heavy]] has a doctorate in Russian Literature. When asked how much use he could possibly get out of it when his job is mowing down people with a minigun, he replied, "More than you'd think."

* Dr. Abraham Van Helsing in the original ''Literature/{{Dracula}}'' is that kind of doctor (and a professor of medicine), and ''not'' a [[TheHunter vampire hunter]], as adaptations often turn him into; he's [[TheSmartGuy just smart enough]] to know enough about them to improvise.
