** Played for laughs in "The Unicorn and the Wasp". The Doctor is fatally poisoned with cyanide, but survives by scarfing down various ingredients and then giving his system a shock - at which point he exhales the poison as a cloud of smoke.

** The Doctor meets a woman named Oswin Oswald in a [[Recap/DoctorWhoS33E1AsylumOfTheDaleks Dalek asylum]] in the far future, and she dies. Then he meets the same woman (now named Clara) in [[Recap/DoctorWho2012CSTheSnowmen Victorian London]], and she dies. Baffled as to how this could have happened, he seeks her out and encounters ''another'' incarnation of her in [[Recap/DoctorWhoS33E6TheBellsOfSaintJohn modern times]], and adopts her as his new companion to figure this out. He avoids confronting her directly about this until [[Recap/DoctorWhoS33E10JourneyToTheCentreOfTheTARDIS several adventures in]], when it seems they are both going to die. He demands to know just what the hell she actually is, but Clara is just a normal woman and has no idea what he's talking about. It later turns out that [[spoiler:this Clara ''is'' a normal woman, and the ''original''; she winds up entering the Doctor's personal timeline in order to thwart a villain who had done the same, causing multiple incarnations of her to appear throughout his life]].
