** Producer John Nathan Turner was the source of the phrase "There is no hanky panky aboard the TARDIS". It was even mentioned in a 1984 issue of Time Magazine. This makes the widespread assumption that the Doctor (especially in the classic series) is asexual more than just mere fan speculation. Since Nu Who, however, it's been treated as depending on the incarnation. Nine was very enthusiastic about 51st Century humanity's views on sexuality, Ten was more of a romantic, Eleven had NoNudityTaboo but did have sex, and Twelve is implied to be demisexual (some originally assumed asexual, but his interactions with Clara, Missy and River disprove that, though it should be noted that on screen nothing sexual has ever been implied related to any of the three).

** This got to a point during the eighties and nineties where some of the TV series' writers were pushing, effectively, for a viewpoint saying the Doctor had ''never'' had sex, despite the existence of his granddaughter Susan (which they got around by saying she'd been adopted). This never got on screen, but it did find its way into the Expanded Universe (e.g. Marc Platt's Literature/DoctorWhoNewAdventures, which fed into the rest of the line, or Eric Saward's short story "Birth of a Renegade").
** Andrew Cartmel would have made this canon, had his Master Plan been allowed to be seen through to fruition. He took most of the material he was working on into his novel ''Lungbarrow'', where we learn, among many other things, that Time Lords are a non-sexual species as they have totally lost the ability to procreate sexually. They sustain themselves with genetic "looms" that stitch new Time Lords out of genetic coding. [[spoiler:The Doctor, however, is special, and implied to be the rebirth of one of the founders of Time Lord society.]]

** The idea might have reached the screen had Marc Platt's "Lungbarrow" been made as a TV story. Script editor Andrew Cartmel and his writers wanted to inject some mystery back into the Doctor, the so-called "Cartmel Masterplan", and "Lungbarrow", as part of this, would have made this canon, had taken the Doctor back to Gallifrey to confront his Master Plan been allowed family and reveal his mysterious connection to be seen through to fruition. He took most of a shadowy figure from the material he was working on into his novel ''Lungbarrow'', where we learn, among many other things, that Time Lords are a non-sexual species as they have totally lost the ability to procreate sexually.

However, John Nathan-Turner felt it revealed too much about the Doctor too soon, and Platt reworked it into the TV story "Ghost Light", subsequently incorporating much of the Masterplan into his New Adventures, ''Time's Crucible'' and ''Lungbarrow''.

* Creator/WilliamShakespeare existed before the notion of "Writer/Playwright as Celebrity" and as such we know very little about his own ideas of theatre and which were the definitive versions. The earlier extant edition, the First Folio was published by actors who knew him and contains an introduction by Ben Jonson, a fellow great playwright and friend who affirms that Shakespeare knew little Latin and Greek and that the famous illustration on the chapbook is a good likeness. This would have been fine if bootleg copies of Shakespeare's plays, made by rival theater companies didn't exist and didn't contain variations to choose from. And his supposed bisexuality comes from scholars who have studied his works and is not supported by historical evidence. However, the idea that he smoked pot? That one comes from them finding pipes with the residue in his yard, which sounds like the stoner version of a redneck with beer cans in his yard.
* The Nation of Islam movement was founded in the early 1930s by a man called Wallace Fard Muhammad, of whom there exists almost no historical record of outside the time period from 1930-34. Independent sources of his life, beliefs and practices are scarce and very vague. Virtually all of his supposed beliefs and teachings were actually publicised by his most prominent follower, Elijah Muhammad, under whom the Nation of Islam as a notable organisation, rather than a obscure and vague movement, emerged.

* ''Manga/AttackOnTitan'' has long left the exact nature of the relationship between Krista Lenz and [[BadassGay Ymir]] somewhat ambiguous within the actual series. While Ymir is confirmed to have romantic feelings for Krista, the other girl's exact feelings have never been clarified. Then the anime adaptation's producer, George Wada, referred to them as a romantic couple during a convention panel. Creator Isayama Hajime, infamous for responding with non-answers, hasn't chimed in to confirm or deny this statement.

* Naomie Harris came up with a back story to explain Selena's cynical outlook in ''TwentyEightDaysLater''. Selena apparently had to kill her whole family in one afternoon after they became infected - including a baby brother whom she had just saved. If one takes this as canonical, it adds some weight to her attitude towards Hannah and Frank.

* The [[ShesAManInJapan Harpuia gender mixup]] in the ''VideoGame/MegaManZero'' series was the result of this, where false information came from ''an'' official source (Capcom of America) but not ''the'' official source (the creators). For the record, he's male. Many attribute the confusion, at the time, to Capcom's decaying quality in translation and proofreading of about anything not japanese coming from them. From manuals to sites to press releases and even in-game scripts.
