* "Time and the Rani" has what is widely considered the worst regeneration, beginning with the TARDIS being shot down and then the Doctor regenerating, apparently from banging his head on the console.



** The bin eating Mickey... and then burping.



** She holds up her hand... and one-centimeter claws extend from her fingers. [[SarcasmMode Real intimidating, Sister.]]

* "I don't wanna go!"
** Redeemed when the Tenth Doctor said it in a passing conversation during ''The Day of the Doctor''. He was simply saying something he ''always'' says in plain, congenial conversation, and not a big narmy last line. It portrays him in more of a sympathetic and tragic figure.
* Part one of the last Tenth Doctor Christmas special could be seen as this when the Master [[spoiler: destroys the human race by overwriting himself onto every person. His laughing along with his duplicates doesn't help.]]
** Particularly the line, [[spoiler: "There is only... the ''MASTER'' RACE!"]] JohnSimm is a good actor, but there was no ''way'' he could deliver that line with dignity.

* ** At the end of Part 1, Rassilon is spitting as he gives his speech to the Time Lords. One can't help but feel sorry for the Time Lords in the front row.

** The Master as he attacks [[spoiler: President Rassillon]] with lightning. As his skeleton begins superheating, you see his x-ray bones and eyeballs... with the eyeballs staring in opposite directions in full on derp-face.

* In the final Tenth Doctor story, the Master is revived by a secret cult. But there is absolutely no indication that these people were aware that he was an evil Time Lord; he is technically being resurrected by a cult devoted to a dead Prime Minister. This is hilarious when you think about it.
** To understand the absurdity of the situation, it's like if members of the Labour Party were meeting in the dungeons of Transport House to bring UsefulNotes/HaroldWilson back to life.

** On the other hand, who can take a man best known for playing [[TheRockyHorrorPictureShow a cross-dresser]] and [[Series/BuffyTheVampireSlayer a character who would be trying to kill the Krillitanes]] seriously as a [[MonsteroftheWeek Villain of the Week]]?

* 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]]''.

to:

* "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.
