** In "The Doctor's Wife", one of the things House does to MindRape Amy on the TARDIS is to make her believe this happened to Rory. At random intervals, Amy is separated from Rory by a sliding steel wall. She finds him a minute or two later, while much more time has passed for him. The first time, it's a few hours, and he's mildly annoyed. The second time, it's two thousand years, and he's a seething mad, wizened old man. The final time, he's a withered skeleton surrounded by messages saying "HATE AMY" written in what looks like blood. Of course, it's all an illusion and present Rory comes round the corner just a moment later.

** Not to mention your robot butler Codsworth, who not only survived the initial nuclear holocaust, but has also spent the past two centuries trying ([[AvertedTrope and failing]], [[RagnarokProofing of course]]) to keep the household maintained in order. He can hardly believe his processors when he sees you. [[spoiler:Also the Vault-Tec salesman from the prologue survived the Great War too, and now lives as a ghoul in Goodneighbour. He's not happy about how he's had to live through 200 years of nightmarish post-apocalyptic survival and discrimination, but he still wears the same suit as the day you met.]] And of course, there's Billy, a ghoul who has been hiding in a fridge since the bombs dropped. For two hundred years. Stuck in a [[FridgeHorror fridge.]] [[PunctuatedForEmphasis For. Two. Hundred. Years.]] [[/folder]]

** ''The Time of the Doctor'' has the Eleventh Doctor spending 900 plus years on Trenzalore, whereas for Clara the episode takes place over the span of two hours. The first few centuries he at least had the excuse of not having the TARDIS, but the rest of the time he apparently didn't even touch it. In a twist on the [[MayflyDecemberRomance Mayfly/December]] relationship, the mortal (Clara) sees the near immortal (the Doctor) die of old age by the end of it. Don't worry, [[TheNthDoctor he regenerates.]]

It turns out that [[spoiler:Shaun was stolen from Vault 111 sixty years before your character escapes the Vault, and has become an old man during that time -- as well as the leader of the Institute]].

* A less tragic version in the season 2 finale of ''Series/TheLibrarians'', where the TimeMachine that sent Flynn and Eve into Creator/{{Shakespeare}}'s time breaks after the jump, and Jenkins informs the others that it's impossible for them to return, even using another time machine, as each time machine works differently. After the BigBad is defeated ([[spoiler:by exorcising him from Shakespeare's body]]), [[spoiler:Shakespeare]] needs to return to his own time. The space/time continuum obligingly creates a temporal rift for him, but Flynn and Eve aren't able to use it. Instead, [[spoiler:they use the last of the Bard's magic to have the two of them turned into statues and placed in a locked room in the Library. A clue is then left that will only appear at the appropriate time that will allow Jenkins to open the room and break the "curse", turning the statues back to normal]].
