** The Cyberleader's tendency to respond to ''any'' report from his underlings with a boisterous "[[AC:EXCELLENT]]", was riffed on even by Creator/ColinBaker and the actor, David Banks. Especially the fact he continued to do so as things proceeded to go horrendeously wrong for him.

** As pointed out by Creator/ElisabethSladen in the DVD commentary, all Kaled orders are written on extremely cheap and crumpled bits of paper ("It's like Mum's shopping list!"), making it hilarious whenever any of the Kaleds are looking at one.

* Oscar Botcherby's death in "The Two Doctors" is two courses of Narm with a side helping of [[LargeHam ham]], all the while having about one ketchup packet's worth of blood on his shirt.

* ''The Mark of the Rani'' has land mines that turn people into '''trees!''' (The [[MadScientist Rani]]; green before it was in!) And it leads to ''this'' gem of a line:

* "[[Recap/DoctorWhoS23E3TerrorOfTheVervoids Terror of the Vervoids]]" : Bonnie Langford's screaming as Mel is already in a narmy league of its own, but she was specifically told by John Nathan-Turner to hold a scream in an "F" note so that it segued with the ending credits, which punched through a new layer of the narmmosphere.

* Richard Briers' performance as the zombified Chief Caretaker in episode 4 of "[[Recap/DoctorWhoS24E2ParadiseTowers Paradise Towers]]". Essentially, Briers is playing a zombie Adolf Hitler possessed by the disembodied mind of an insane architect. He's one of the hammiest villains in Classic Who, to the point where it just becomes hilarious.

Added DiffLines:

* The Doctor is so afraid of the Time Lords returning in "The End of Time" that he grabs Wilf's old pistol. This is portrayed as a GodzillaThreshold for the Doctor and milked for all the drama it's worth (what with the Woman repeatedly urging for him to 'take up arms') but... he's up against the [[PhysicalGod Time]] [[SufficientlyAdvancedAliens Lords.]] This is the dramatic equivalent of grabbing a feather duster because the Nazis are coming. It's just ridiculous.

Added DiffLines:

** It doesn't help that the New Paradigm Daleks are ''obviously'' made of plastic. At least the RTD-era Daleks can pass muster as metal as long as you don't look too closely.
** The so-called 'reason' for the change in design: Karen Gillan (Amy) is taller than Billie Piper (Rose), and therefore the 'old' Daleks 'don't look as intimidating.' [[SarcasmMode Right, because being a genocidal maniac capable of killing anything with one shot isn't scary if you're a bit short...]]


Added DiffLines:

*** So being short means you can't be powerful? This is the [[GuileHero Doctor]] [[MagnificentBastard we're]] [[TheChessmaster talking]] [[BewareTheSillyOnes about]] [[GoodIsNotNice here.]] Or do you have to be big to be scary?!

*** THAT is highly subjective. To a lot of people it seems like a clumsy attempt to rescue an infamously controversial line from the realms of narm. If it didn't work, it just makes it narmier.

Added DiffLines:

** Not helping the Slitheen's case is the fact that they move really fast, leaping and sprinting like lions... when they're CGI. When it switches back to rubber suits they become a lot less graceful. The CGI ones are also shown smashing a heavy oak door off its hinges, yet the rubber one takes forever to carve its way through Mickey's cheap MDF front door.

*** Resolved by casting [[TheOtherDarrin James Buller]] as the present day Dave Oswald, [[http://31.media.tumblr.com/0d1a59ecb61bd76ad250ba1ef495a025/tumblr_mye431shjX1rsg8c1o2_1280.jpg a properly gray-follicled man with a beard and receding hairline]], who plays the character's current, middle-aged portrayal, rather than a DawsonCasting. The producers got away with it because Dave had only appeared in flashbacks and an age-up for 2013 would make sense.

** The Absorbaloff [[{{Expy}} looks, acts and sounds]] like an alien version of [[AustinPowers Fat Bastard]]. It ''was'' supposed to be the size of a double-decker bus. Even the boy who designed it was disappointed when he saw the end result.

** While in their human forms, the Slitheen [[{{Gasshole}} constantly fart]]. And giggle about it. After that, it's impossible to take their boasts about how "dangerous" they are seriously.
