* The Ice Warrior creeping up behind Stepashin is less like an intense, scary moment, but more like the Ice Warrior was about to do more than kill the guy. His dialogue and hand movements did not help.

** There's also the part where the Ice Warriors arrive and take Skaldak back to their ship, leaving everyone unsure if they alien would spare them of blow them up. The tense nature of the scene is kind of ruined when Clara starts singing "Hungry Like the Wolf", which Grisenko had been listening to earlier.

** The same actor's intonation of "Earth!" during a particularly dramatic moment only makes him sound like he's channeling [[FatherTed Father Jack]]:

* "The Ark in Space" is a generally well-regarded serial for good reason; it's a terrifying concept rendered quite well overall. But the effect is spoiled a bit when the "infection" the characters suffer from is very obviously made of ''[[SpecialEffectFailure bubble wrap]]''.

* "The Ark in Space" is a generally well-regarded serial for good reason; it's a terrifying concept rendered quite well overall. (Tellingly, both of the revival series showrunners, Creator/RussellTDavies and Creator/StevenMoffat, have named it as their favourite serial from the classic series). But the effect is spoiled a bit when the "infection" the characters suffer from is very obviously made of ''[[SpecialEffectFailure bubble wrap]]''.

* In The Idiot's Lantern: "Hungry! HUNGRYYYYYYYYYYYYYY!" Yeah, squeaky-voiced lady in a black-and-white screen. I'm terrified.



** Her puns also get really ridiculous.

Added DiffLines:

** It gets even WORSE when you consider that no other Time Lord has done this either. This includes [[spoiler: the incarnation of River Song in her preteens (at the oldest) from "The Impossible Astronaut/Day of the Moon""]] who is implied to be doing this for the first time.

* The Tritovore from "Planet of the Dead" -- "Humanoid fly creatures, they trade with other civilizations for their excrement." Turned out to resemble the central character from the original (1950's) version of ''TheFly''.

** The Doctor explaining that he doesn't like hugs because it's "an excuse to hide your face" is meant to be serious, as Twelve is more serious, but it just comes off as ridiculous after years of watching other regenerations hug everyone in sight with no problem. But then again, Twelve is the first one to really get self-contemplative, so many simple things such as hugs take on whole new meanings. Still, he makes kooky faces when hugged.

** The [[spoiler: War Doctor]] gets a Narm moment of his own for being billed as TheDreaded, yet half a head [[TheNapoleon shorter in stature]] compared to his successors. And the fact when he got puzzled over the interface of the Moment, he just wanted a big red button to [[spoiler: blow up Gallifrey]] comes off as absurdly inappropriate in the wake of [[spoiler:''committing genocide'']], and he was regretting it coming to this, until you realize it's a hint of the old Doctor shining through, being eccentric again and perhaps desperately trying to lighten the mood.

* A classic ''Series/DoctorWho'' example -- the Fifth Doctor's regeneration at the end of "The Caves of Androzani" can be summed up by three words: [[http://www.doctorwhoreviews.co.uk/6R_files/The%20Caves%20of%20Androzani%20(11).jpg Nicola Bryant's cleavage.]] Hey, even Peter Davison later admitted it.
