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.

* In "Smith and Jones" we see these fearsome creatures marching in... that look like giant rhinos in leather. And it gets better: When the Judoon first speaks, it sounds like a first grader rhyming things with "oh".

* Shakespeare being possessed in "The Shakespeare Code." The witches have scary potential and they use scary puppets, but they control Shakespeare by blowing a ''acid-green gas'' (how did he not see it?) into his room, which he inhales up one nostril. The possessed man then begins writing, staring straight ahead with his mouth clamped shut. It looks like he's trying very hard not to laugh.

** The Doctor's final description of Gallifrey at the end of the episode is unfortunately soppy, due to a three-way combination of the writing ("that ol' planet!"), David Tennant's delivery slowly but surely marching over the LargeHam line, and his being shot in close-up as he looks wistfully up beyond the camera like he's about to break into "When You Wish Upon a Star" (and in fact, the New New Yorkers reprise their hymn-singing in the soundtrack right on cue).

* The reveal of the murderer in "The Unicorn and the Wasp" ends up being this. Seeing [[spoiler: Reverend Golightly, who is actually a giant alien wasp,]] suddenly suddenly realizing and succumbing to his alien nature and murder two people should be horrifying. Instead we get the character yelling in a buzzing equivalent of Sssssnaketalk before just making buzzing sounds while standing in a red light. His rant to the Doctor in the following scene becomes very cartoonish.

** Worse, David Tennant gets so worked up he knocks stuff off a desk and visibly drools a stringy, sticky, dripping ''horker'' of [[{{Squick}} saliva]].
** What makes this rant especially narmful is that he's bitching about how when he dies, all he does is just regenerate. Really, Doctor? You have regenerated eleven times and it only just bothers you '''now'''?! Especially when death is often a minor inconvenience for you. In light of ''The Time of the Doctor'', this is doubly narmful.
** 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.

*** 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.

* From "Victory of the Daleks," the reveal of the new Dalek paradigm is sold as extremely dramatic and scary, featuring intimidating new tank-like designs for the monsters, but is somewhat ruined by the bright, happy colours the new Daleks have been painted in. Bright orange and yellow Daleks do not exactly inspire fear. Perhaps not surprisingly, later appearances have them be mostly background characters, in favor of the more traditional Daleks.

* The scene where the Doctor sees Rory and Amy again in "Closing Time" is all kinds of sweet and heartbreaking. But when you get it into your head that it's because Amy is promoting a perfume named after petrichor, i.e. wet dirt, that [[MoodWhiplash bit causes inappropriate giggles]].
* The Eleventh Doctor pretending to have a mini-showdown with a guy in "A Town Called Mercy". It's only a few seconds long, but it was rather silly. In a bad way. Also the Gunslinger's cry of "FACE ME!" came off as aping [[Film/TheDarkKnightRises Bane]].

** The entire plot can basically be summed up as "Time can't be rewritten this week" (clearly the Doctor hasn't seen Back to the Future II recently). The idea that reading a "fictional" story can fix time as firmly as witnessing the event seems contrived. And heaven only knows how the Melody Malone book reads to anyone in-series who isn't our heroes...

** It's just really awkward phrasing and quite poorly acted. There's also the fact that Michael Dixon, who plays Clara's father, is thirty, while Jenna-Louise Coleman (who plays adult Clara) is 27. Seeing them standing beside each other at Clara's mother's grave is utterly ridiculous - apparently the makeup department thought that Dixon would look believable if they simply put some faux gray colour in his hair.

* One we can blame on the costuming department: Vastra's entrance in "The Crimson Horror" has her wearing a veil, until she lifts it up accompanied by a {{Scare Chord}}. Except, her face is perfectly visible behind the veil, not that it stops another scene a bit later from also playing out like the veil is completely opaque.

* Doctor Who Live: The Afterparty is an event that every Doctor Who fan would like to forget. While it featured many actors that had played companions, most of them were never spoken to. Those that were spoken to included Caitlin Blackwood (Young Amy) and Andrew Hayden Smith (a minor character in the two Cybermen stories of Series 2) both of whom can not be considered companions without stretching that definition considerably. The hosts meanwhile were heavily criticised for their treatment of the actors; they had a very childish manner of presenting, pushed some actors out of the way to reach the people they talked to and some actors were only referred to by their character name. Finally, there is the infamous linkup with One Direction that failed so spectacularly that Moffat predicted that it would become a NeverLiveItDown moment.

* The Second Doctor serial "The Invasion" features a Cyberman wandering through the sewers, screaming in fear.

* Tom Baker's exceptionally abysmal getting-shot acting in the Episode 2 cliffhanger of "Revenge of the Cybermen". He dives forward onto his forearms, gets tangled in his scarf while writhing around dramatically with his mouth open, and surreptitiously-but-obviously arranges his hair so it'll look good for the closeup at the end of the shot. Not one of his best moments as a performer.

But the effect is spoiled a bit when the "infection" the characters suffer from is very obviously made of ''[[SpecialEffectFailure bubble wrap]]''.

* Doctor Who Live: The Afterparty is an event that every Doctor Who fan would like to forget. While it featured many actors that had played companions, most of them were never spoken to. Those that were spoken to included Caitlin Blackwood (Young Amy) and Andrew Hayden Smith (a minor character in the two Cybermen stories of Series 2) both of whom can not be considered companions without stretching that definition considerably. The hosts meanwhile were heavily criticised for their treatment of the actors; they had a very childish manner of presenting, pushed some actors out of the way to reach the people they talked to and some actors were only referred to by their character name. Finally, there is the infamous linkup with One Direction that failed so spectacularly that Moffat predicted that it would become a NeverLiveItDown moment.



* [[Recap/DoctorWhoS34E10InTheForestOfTheNight "In The Forest of the Night"]], at the end when the bushes outside Maebh's house dissolve into fairy dust to reveal Maebh's lost sister, whom she had sent a message to during the broadcast to the world. Having the final image of the episode be a person we've never seen before kind of cuts down on the emotion.

** The Doctor going off the rails and attacking the Dalek is upsetting at first - until he starts to monologue. It's partly the AsYouKnow information dump on his history with the Daleks, partly the shove he delivers as his closing statement, and partly the sheer hamminess of this line:
---> "I am the Doctor. AND YOU ARE THE DALEKS!" ''(shove)''

** After the Beast finishes revealing everyone's secrets, they challenge the Doctor to explain how it could have known those things. The Doctor gives a very weak answer that doesn't satisfy them, as if he can't explain it himself. This despite existing in a universe where many aliens (including himself!) can read minds. It comes across as the writers trying too hard to shoe-horn in a 'science doesn't have all the answers' tract.



** During said monolgue, Ten says that the Beast has been rendered completely mindless. Then the thing chuckles evilly at him. And the rest of the episode has the Beast mind-controlling people, so he can't be ''that'' mindless... really, writers, what was the point of that line?
