* The Veil from "Heaven Sent" is something that terrifies even the Doctor. Heavily implied to be a child's fairy tale from his youth on Gallifrey, it still has the power to scare the crap out of him all these centuries later. And not without cause. The Veil is a Determinator, always moving at a constant pace, always coming for him. If he stops for too long, if he tarries just a little more than he should, or sleeps a little more than he should (and at max he gets a mere 82 minutes to do so), it will catch him. And it can kill with a touch. Or in the case of a Time Lord, mortally wound them to the point that Regeneration is no longer an option for them. The only heralds to its arrival are t.v. monitors that show it's viewpoint, and the buzzing of flies.

* The Veil from "Heaven Sent" is something that terrifies even the Doctor. Heavily implied to be a child's fairy tale A shade spawned from his youth on Gallifrey, The Doctor's childhood memory of seeing a dead woman's rotting corpse, it still has the power to scare the crap out of him all these centuries later. And not without cause. The Veil is a Determinator, always moving at a constant pace, always coming for him.

Added DiffLines:

* After the Master unleashes the Toclafane, Martha uses Jack's vortex manipulator to escape. She lands on a hill overlooking London, where we see a horrifying scene of a ''colossal'' horde of Toclafane (almost filling the entire sky) descending upon the city and destroying it. The sound of explosions and screams fill the air, and Martha can only look on helplessly before running in the opposite direction as fast as she can.

* When it first aired, the episode had a special warning telling parents that the episode was [[UpToEleven scarier than normal]] and should be watched during the day instead of at night. Only ''Doctor Who'' could make an episode about statues the most terrifying thing in the world.
* The Weeping Angels don't actually kill you. As the Doctor put it, they're the nicest psychopaths in the universe because: "No mess, no fuss, they just zap you into the past and consume the days you might have had." Kathy Nightingale and Billy Shipton both lived out happy, full lives before dying of natural causes. They don't kill you, and they still caused the most hardened horror fans to wet themselves.
* The scene where Sally takes the TARDIS key. While most other scenes

* "Midnight"
** An unknown and unseen intelligence that repeats ''absolutely everything'' said, possessing a woman, causing claustrophobia on a space shuttle and leaving the Doctor completely helpless and broken for once. It's not the monster that's scary, it's the fact that it {{Mind Rape}}s the Doctor and then convinces six ordinary people to murder him, and does so ''very'' easily.
** The Doctor is forced to repeat everything the monster says... including her commands to kill him. He is literally made to beg for his own death. Imagine being completely paralyzed, as several people physically drag you to your death, and hearing your own voice say, "Faster!"
** This exchange:
--->'''The Doctor:''' (with Sky repeating) "Listen to me. Whatever you want, if it's life or form or consciousness or voice, you don't have to steal it. You find it without hurting anyone. And I'll help you, that's a promise. So, what do you think? (Sky speaks first) Do we have a deal?"
** ''Midnight'' is the only episode ''in the history of the show'' in which we never find out what the monster actually ''was''. Good luck sleeping now.
** Just how quickly a group of ordinary people decide that ''killing'' an innocent person is the best response; the whole mob mentality/homicidal rage thing... ''Because that's something that can and does happen.'' Not the (also terrifying) alien, you don't have to worry about that... but you can worry that, some day, you just might be stuck in a confined place with six panicking people. You might try and be the voice of reason and they might just straight up murder you for it.
** The passengers are first considering throwing Sky out. The Doctor goes into a long speech [[WhatYouAreInTheDark asking them if, deep down, they were truly willing to murder someone]]. There's a long pause before a woman says "[[SubvertedTrope I'd do it]]," and she's ''dead serious.'' Then the creature causes them to all consider throwing ''the Doctor'' out too. He does his usual "I'm-competent-and-clever" act that usually causes people to follow him without question. Instead, the other passengers start to question who he is and if he's really good, which ultimately leads to them very nearly killing him at the end. It's the one time we see the Doctor's words utterly torn apart and used against him, and it's downright ''terrifying.''
** ''Doctor Who'' Nightmare Fuel is normally at least ''somewhat'' reduced by the end of the episode, because the monsters get defeated. In this one? ''We have no guarantee the thing is dead.'' Nor do we know if there are ''more of them.''
** The ''Midnight'' theme. [[ShmuckBait DO NOT listen to that theme late at night in the dark.]]
** [[http://au.news.yahoo.com/tech-news/a/-/technology/10114905/astronomers-discover-planet-made-of-diamond/ A planet made of diamonds has been found.]]
* ''Turn Left''
** [[WhatIf A world where the Doctor and Donna never met]], thus the Doctor is killed and every [[OnceAnEpisode attempted present-day alien invasion of Earth]] from that point onward is successful, turning Earth into a doomed dystopia. It's not easy seeing one of your beloved characters getting KILLED.
** Martha, [[Series/TheSarahJaneAdventures Sarah Jane, her son Luke, Alan and Chrissie Jackson and Carla Langer]], and the members of Torchwood all die in an effort to save others after the Doctor was gone was nightmarish.
** The implication of what brutality and cruelty the governments stoop to during the ensuing dystopia is unsettling. Using ethnic segments of the population as political scapegoats and then [[DoesThisRemindYouOfAnything shipping them off for 'gainful employment']] (and, presumably, oven-related death) is chilling.
*** Three little words out of Donna's grandfather Wilfred: "'''It's happening again.'''" It might actually be ''worse'' than that: ''the Cybermen theme'' is playing during that scene.
** "There is something on your back." It freaks everyone out, even a soldier!
** All of this put together, and we are all but told outright that the Doctor is the only thing between this world total annihilation. You'd better hope he'll always be there.
** [[spoiler: Bad Wolf Bad Wolf Bad Wolf Bad Wolf Bad Wolf Bad Wolf Bad Wolf Bad Wolf Bad Wolf Bad Wolf Bad Wolf Bad Wolf Bad Wolf Bad Wolf]]
* ''Stolen Earth''
** Guess who comes back for the finale? (Hint: They were in two out of the three previous finales. And their freakish creator returns as they begin their grandest invasion of Earth ever.). To further establish the utter brutality of the episode, in one scene both Sarah Jane and Captain Jack are horrified by one word spoken by our returning "friends". While in and of itself it's not that scary, think about the implications. Jack is hundreds of years old, has seen and done everything, is virtually unkillable, and one word terrifies him. Sarah Jane's grown up and had a fulfilling life beyond the Doctor, seen more then most other companions, and in a way grown from a child to an adult. And one well placed word reduces her to tears because she's so scared. You know that when Sarah and Jack have nightmares, they are hearing the word "Exterminate". Just something about that sequence that really drives it home -- this isn't an invasion, it's a ''sterilization.''
*** It gets even worse when you realize that [[Series/{{Torchwood}} Ianto Jones]] is a survivor of the Battle of Canary Wharf, so he's probably just as familiar and just as hopeless at the realization that they're coming again. Even worse; '''HIS GIRLFRIEND WAS HALFWAY CONVERTED DURING CANARY WHARF!'''
*** When they finally established communication with the Doctor, Jack's terrified rant at wondering where the hell the Doctor has been tells you that Jack's afraid of them, even with being immortal. Don't forget: they ''killed'' him. And they can keep killing him over and over and over. Jack isn't going to be born for three thousand years. [[FridgeBrilliance He's got very good reason to be afraid:]] if they win, [[RetGone he couldn't be there in the first place.]]
** Think about it! Sarah Jane was present when Davros created the Daleks and Jack - you never forget the first time... the first time you ''die'' that is.
*** Sarah Jane looks at her son as soon as she hears the Daleks' battle cry, knowing what those words mean. That's a massive dose of AdultFear right there.
** While "The Stolen Earth" gives the Daleks one or two funny bits ("Yes, we know who you are."), there is enough effing Nightmare Fuel of every kind in the episode. For example (all of these come with the warning that you may negate a perfectly good WhamEpisode):
*** Aforementioned reaction of Sarah, Jack and Martha to "Exterminate".
*** Daleks stealing entire planets as part of their master plan.
*** Daleks marching everyone on Earth out of their homes and incinerating anyone who doesn't come along.
*** Dalek Caan screwing with the Time Vortex in a way that beats out even the Doctor.
*** [[TalkativeLoon Dalek Caan's current state.]]
*** [[BodyHorror Davros' eaten away chest and exposed organs.]] [[{{Squick}} Ugg.]]
*** The Daleks effing shooting the Doctor during a subversion of TheMeadowRun, leading to an equally shocking cliffhanger.
** Davros being within 10 seconds of achieving his extremely long life's ambition of ending everything. EVERYTHING. Ever. Period. No backsies. Just a small corner of existence filled with Daleks. "YES! I WOULD DO IT!" indeed.
** His metaphorical holding a mirror up to the Doctor to show him who he really is - "the man who never carries a gun..."
** The dialogue leading up to his "THE DESTRUCTION! OF REALITY! ITSELF!" Davros is going into great detail to explain to Rose and the Doctor how, once the Reality Bomb goes off, ''it can't be stopped''. It is going to spread out and destroy ''everything''. Every planet, every star, every living being in existence is going to be reduced to nothingness - and not just in "our" universe, but ''every dimension in TheMultiverse''. Absolutely ''nothing'' will survive... except Davros and the Daleks. Think about that - there'd be nothing left except an evil race and their MadScientist creator. ''That's'' what the final legacy of the universe would have been had the good guys lost, which they came within a hairsbreadth of doing. All of creation reduced to inert particles, and the only exception are Space Nazis.
*** Davros' cry about "THE DESTRUCTION! OF REALITY! ITSELF!" is especially chilling in retrospect from "The End of Time". The exclamation, and the idea in general, is uncannily similar to Rassilon's battle cry before the assembled lords of Gallifrey, and chillingly lends credence to the Doctor's comments on just how far the Time Lords had sunk by the end of the Time War -- namely, to the level of the Daleks themselves.

* "Midnight"
A two-part story penned by Creator/StevenMoffat, involving living carnivorous shadows in a giant space library, plus a cyberspace segment involving vanishing children and a woman with a [[http://tardis.wikia.com/wiki/File:Forest_Of_The_Dead.jpg warped face]].
* Apparently the little specks in bright light are Vashta Nerada, too.
* "Hey... ''who turned out the lights...?"'' Go ahead; ''[[http://lacer.files.wordpress.com/2008/05/silence-in-the-library.jpg shudder.]]''
* What makes "count your shadows" so horrifying is that it's not impossible to have two shadows. If you're standing between two light sources of similar brightness (Two lamps, or even two windows on different walls) you will have two shadows.
** More the point that you almost never even notice your own shadow, even when you think about it.
** It could be referring to the umbra of your shadow the darkest part. You can have multiple penumbras (the lighter parts), but the Vashta Nerada are pitch black. And you can't have two umbras.
* "The lights... are going... out..."
** The 'Child Psychologist' says to a 'Child': [[WelcomeToTheRealWorld "The real world is a lie and your nightmares are real. "]]
* The Doctor saying that every creature in the universe has a ''irrational'' fear of the dark... only to explain that the fear ''isn't'' irrational.
* Oh god... The Vashta Nerada exist on every world in the universe. Sometimes a person just goes missing....
* It's also especially implied that they exist ''on Earth''...
** ''Implied''?!
--->'''The Doctor:''' [Vashta Nerada] are the dust in sunbeams. ... They mostly live on roadkill, but sometimes a person goes into the dark...and doesn't come back...
* Let's not forget the line by the Doctor after they've fled from Proper Dave.
--->'''The Doctor:''' [''to River''] You said there were five people alive in this room, right?\\
'''River:''' Yes.\\
'''The Doctor:''' [[MassOhCrap So why are there six...?]]\\
[''beat; everyone turns around slowly'']\\
'''Proper Dave/Vashta Nerada:''' Hey! Who turned out the lights?
* A person's last dying thoughts getting [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Fnei3jLYCFE stuck in the suit radio]] until they fade: "Icecream, Icescream, I scream..."
* Finally, the cliffhanger:
---> "Donna Noble has left the Library. Donna Noble has been saved. Donna Noble has left the Library. Donna Noble has been saved. Donna Noble has left the Library. Donna Noble has been saved..."

* '''The Waters of Mars'''
** Creator/RussellTDavies said that "The Waters of Mars" would be very scary, going on to describe it as "nightmarish". Consider how many people were left hiding under the bed after episodes that were ''not'' intended to be that scary. How did he do?
** Monsters that infect you with the very thing that makes up ''60 percent of your body'', or over ''70 percent of this planet's surface''. One drop is all it takes. If you're literally ''anywhere else'' other than the small, tightly enclosed, easily destructible environment the episode takes place in, infection is only a matter of time. Water can get in anywhere.
** "Water is patient, water just waits. Water always wins."
** During the Doctor's first meeting inside Bowie Base 1, and his eureka moment, as the names of all the in-the-flesh characters ''in that very room'' were being spouted off, it goes to a webpage showing that they ''die on that very day''. The Doctor knew that he couldn't do anything to change it, beause it was a Fixed Point in time and how sorry he seemed for them.
*** When the Doctor realises that he is the only Time Lord left, and that consequently, ''he'' makes the rules. Nothing scarier than a man who rules reality, and is now willing to abuse that fact.
*** Then what makes him halt. Specifically, the companion-of-the-week killing herself to preserve the order of time.
*** The[[AGodAmI Time Lord Victorious]] [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TIw_qRfXBPs speech]] can be compared directly to the Master's conversation with the shrunken Doctor in LOTTL. The similarities in the mindset of the respective Timelords at those points are REMARKABLY similar, and provoked physical shaking and symptoms one might possibly associate with MindRape. They even say 'tough' in the same way. Oh, and in The End of Time, he ''quotes him directly''- "Funny? No? Little bit?".
*** "I'm a Time Lord. I HAVE THAT RIGHT." Now didn't ''that'' make the hair on the back of your neck stand up.
*** This episode puts right out in the open a fact that often gets sort of lost in the Doctor's CloudCuckoolander and BunnyEarsLawyer qualities: The Doctor is mentally ill, and fairly unstable. In ''The Waters of Mars'' it wasn't made cute or funny; it was dark, and serious and deadly, and not ignorable. That was scarier than any villain or monster they've had on the show.
*** It gets worse as I think about it.
*** A) What happens at the very beginning of this incarnation? The Doctor casually rewrites the timeline. Why? Because Harriet Jones, the Prime Minister fated to bring in a golden age for Great Britain had ... dared to not trust that he would always be there to save them. So this isn't the first time the Time Lord Triumphant came out.
*** B) What incarnation of the Doctor is this? #10. Add one for the War Doctor. Add one more for successfully suppressing a regeneration. #12. When was the Valeyard predicted by the Timelord Council? Between the 12th and final regenerations. Had the mission commander *not* sacrificed herself to preserve the timeline, just how close were we to the Valeyard personality achieving dominance.
*** It's not just The Master but the Doctor's SanitySlippage parallels that of the Time Lords in ''The End of Time''. During the War, they went mad with their own power, to the point of being willing to destroy the universe to "ascend to a higher form of consciousness." This was why the Doctor had to kill them in the first place. Now bear in the mind that the Doctor was ''able'' to do that -- to destroy not one, but two all-powerful civilizations, all by himself. Then realize that if he were to go down the same road, ''there might be no one at all capable of stopping him.''
*** What makes that final scene even more unsettling is that the Doctor's cocky, I'm-really-so-very-awesome-me smugness in that scene isn't a million miles off from how he's behaved in other episodes after beating the baddie of the week... except this time, it's presented in a much more unsettling light. Rather than everyone around him boosting him up by fawning over how great he is in dazzled awe, they're utterly freaked out and terrified by him. The fact that it's one of the most matter-of-fact AGodAmI moments ever makes it far more unsettling than a million ranting megalomaniacs.
*** In "Runaway Bride", Donna told Doctor that [[MoralityChain he needs someone to prevent him from going too far]]. She was proven COMPLETELY RIGHT in this episode. Though this is nothing new, all the way back to the First Doctor, Ian Chesterton stopped The Doctor from bashing a caveman's skull in with a rock. This is more or less canon that The Doctor ever since, was inspired for one reason, to keep companions, to keep his humanity in check and prevent his darkness from taking over.
** The Doctor sonic-ing the Gadget robot and Roman ''screaming in pain because his brain is connected to the robot''. The worst part of it all is that The Doctor is completely unaware of the damage he's causing, running around with a big grin on his face.
** The manner in which the Flood transformed people into hive-minded water zombies was utterly terrifying. Bonus points for the tremendous Tear Jerker of Steffi desperately turning on a recording of her children during her last few seconds of consciousness, before emerging from the room she'd been sealed into (after a behind-the-back view of the transformation) to terrorize her former crewmates. Then adorable Roman's living example of the 'One Drop' being fatal.
** The fact that the Flood manages to momentarily pass as one of the base crew, even conversing with Yuri, who doesn't notice as it completely takes over. Then it speaks with her voice, the only time it ever speaks.

** * "Water is patient, water just waits. Water always wins."
** * During the Doctor's first meeting inside Bowie Base 1, and his eureka moment, as the names of all the in-the-flesh characters ''in that very room'' were being spouted off, it goes to a webpage showing that they ''die on that very day''. The Doctor knew that he couldn't do anything to change it, beause it was a Fixed Point in time and how sorry he seemed for them.
*** ** When the Doctor realises that he is the only Time Lord left, and that consequently, ''he'' makes the rules. Nothing scarier than a man who rules reality, and is now willing to abuse that fact.
*** ** Then what makes him halt. Specifically, the companion-of-the-week killing herself to preserve the order of time.
*** ** The[[AGodAmI Time Lord Victorious]] [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TIw_qRfXBPs speech]] can be compared directly to the Master's conversation with the shrunken Doctor in LOTTL. The similarities in the mindset of the respective Timelords at those points are REMARKABLY similar, and provoked physical shaking and symptoms one might possibly associate with MindRape. They even say 'tough' in the same way. Oh, and in The End of Time, he ''quotes him directly''- "Funny? No? Little bit?".
*** ** "I'm a Time Lord. I HAVE THAT RIGHT." Now didn't ''that'' make the hair on the back of your neck stand up.
*** ** This episode puts right out in the open a fact that often gets sort of lost in the Doctor's CloudCuckoolander and BunnyEarsLawyer qualities: The Doctor is mentally ill, and fairly unstable. In ''The Waters of Mars'' it wasn't made cute or funny; it was dark, and serious and deadly, and not ignorable. That was scarier than any villain or monster they've had on the show.
*** ** It gets worse as I think about it.
*** ** A) What happens at the very beginning of this incarnation? The Doctor casually rewrites the timeline. Why? Because Harriet Jones, the Prime Minister fated to bring in a golden age for Great Britain had ... dared to not trust that he would always be there to save them. So this isn't the first time the Time Lord Triumphant Victorious came out.
*** ** B) What incarnation of the Doctor is this? #10. Add one for the War Doctor. Add one more for successfully suppressing a regeneration. #12. When was the Valeyard predicted by the Timelord Council? Between the 12th and final regenerations. Had the mission commander *not* sacrificed herself to preserve the timeline, just how close were we to the Valeyard personality achieving dominance.
*** ** It's not just The Master but the Doctor's SanitySlippage parallels that of the Time Lords in ''The End of Time''. During the War, they went mad with their own power, to the point of being willing to destroy the universe to "ascend to a higher form of consciousness." This was why the Doctor had to kill them in the first place. Now bear in the mind that the Doctor was ''able'' to do that -- to destroy not one, but two all-powerful civilizations, all by himself. Then realize that if he were to go down the same road, ''there might be no one at all capable of stopping him.''
*** ** What makes that final scene even more unsettling is that the Doctor's cocky, I'm-really-so-very-awesome-me smugness in that scene isn't a million miles off from how he's behaved in other episodes after beating the baddie of the week... except this time, it's presented in a much more unsettling light. Rather than everyone around him boosting him up by fawning over how great he is in dazzled awe, they're utterly freaked out and terrified by him. The fact that it's one of the most matter-of-fact AGodAmI moments ever makes it far more unsettling than a million ranting megalomaniacs.
*** ** In "Runaway "The Runaway Bride", Donna told Doctor that [[MoralityChain he needs someone to prevent him from going too far]]. She was proven COMPLETELY RIGHT in this episode. Though this is nothing new, all the way back to the First Doctor, Ian Chesterton stopped The Doctor from bashing a caveman's skull in with a rock. This is more or less canon that The Doctor ever since, was inspired for one reason, to keep companions, to keep his humanity in check and prevent his darkness from taking over.
** * The Doctor sonic-ing the Gadget robot and Roman ''screaming in pain because his brain is connected to the robot''. The worst part of it all is that The Doctor is completely unaware of the damage he's causing, running around with a big grin on his face.
** * The manner in which the Flood transformed people into hive-minded water zombies was utterly terrifying. Bonus points for the tremendous Tear Jerker of Steffi desperately turning on a recording of her children during her last few seconds of consciousness, before emerging from the room she'd been sealed into (after a behind-the-back view of the transformation) to terrorize her former crewmates. Then adorable Roman's living example of the 'One Drop' being fatal.
** * The fact that the Flood manages to momentarily pass as one of the base crew, even conversing with Yuri, who doesn't notice as it completely takes over. Then it speaks with her voice, the only time it ever speaks.



*** Which might make it more disturbing. The Flood can speak, but it just doesn't bother.
** The Doctor in the TARDIS, staring, being aware of the consequences of his actions and his impending end, and the Cloister Bell begins to ring...
* '''The End of Time'''
** What happened at the climax of ''The End of Time'' Part One with the Master turning EVERY human in the world, apart from Donna and Wilf, into a copy of himself. Gwen, Martha and Sarah Jane Smith never saw that coming, did they... Nor Jo Grant or Ace or the Brigadier or any of the Doctor's ''other'' companions on Earth, living ''or'' dead.
** It's heavily implied the Master eats ''people'' and just leaves skeletons. Imagine seeing this [[http://likeawhisper.files.wordpress.com/2009/12/themaster.jpg]] face falling from the sky on top of you while a psychotic voice yells "DINNER TIME!!" right before you die.
** Remember the transformations happened during Obama's inauguration speech. The "filmed" inauguration speech. [[FridgeHorror Imagine the horror of the people rewatching it]].
** How Time Lords decided to save themselves? They decided to initiate the Ultimate Sanction - to create a time paradox so severe that ''it would rip the Time Vortex apart'', '''destroying the universe''', and to use the free energy to AscendToAHigherPlaneOfExistence! No wonder Doctor was so freaked out!
** It turns out that the Master is crazy because ([[DependingOnTheWriter at least mostly]]) Time Lords put the signal of their heart into him to save themselves. So it makes them responsible, partially, for MANY of universe's disasters.
*** Making it worse is that the Master was a megalomaniac SOB long before the Time Lords put that signal into him. Rather than turning an innocent man into a psychopath, they turned a psychopath into a '''monster''', all just to save their own skins.
** The Doctor's mention of the horrible things that the Time Lords would bring back from the War if they were released. We may [[NoodleIncident never get to see]] them, but [[NothingIsScarier that just makes it]] ''[[NothingIsScarier worse]].'' Just the expression on the Doctor's face alone makes you realise that, to him, the Time Lords returning is ''HIS'' NightmareFuel. This is the guy who tells anyone he meets that the Time Lords were great and awesome -- ''WERE'' being the operative word. [[TechnicalPacifist Then he takes up the gun]]...
--->"You weren't there, in the final days of the war. You never saw what was born. But if the time lock's broken then everything's coming through and not just the Daleks but the Skaro Degradations. The horde of travesties! The Nightmare Child, The Could-Have-Been King with his army of Meanwhiles and Never-Weres... the war turned into HELL! And that's what you've opened: right above the Earth! HELL is descending!"
*** The Time War. So the two most powerful civilizations in the universe ever are going at it with the gloves off; bad enough. Some of the weapons are creepifying just by their names -- the Dalek fleet that "flew into the jaws of the Nightmare Child" is one hell of a NoodleIncident to ponder. The use of time travel to constantly resurrect the warriors, only for them to die again and again, hundreds of times? But worst of all is the simple fact implicit in its name: because it's a time war, you can never really meaningfully say that it's over from an internal perspective. It's just sealed away, with no escape....
*** Here's some lovely FridgeHorror for you -- in the old series, the Time Lords all wore [[http://cdn.static.ovimg.com/episode/302849.jpg robes]] colored according to the Chapterhouse they belonged to. In "The End of Time", ''every single Time Lord'' is wearing Rassilon's [[http://images.wikia.com/tardis/images/6/69/Time-lords-high-council.jpg red-and-gold]]. Based on what we saw of [[OmnicidalManiac Rassilon]], ''[[ThePurge what do you think happened]] to the other Chapterhouses?''
** The thought of the Time Lords returning made ''the Doctor'' pick up a gun '''willingly'''. '''[[GodzillaThreshold This was after he rejected taking a gun multiple times.]]''' That's how bad the situation became.
** The post climax scene with the nuclear bolt and the two doors. The Doctor is looking at Wilfred, who will most certainly die if he doesn't sacrifice himself in his place, and declaring him "unimportant" and at the same time rambling about how important he himself is. It's a terrifying moment wherein you briefly think the Doctor is utterly and completely willing to sacrifice an innocent man because he thinks "The Doctor" counts for more. This is made more horrid by the fact that Wilfred had seen such a move coming, as earlier he had called the Doctor out on his willingness to put a Time Lord's life before that of the entire human race, and is still telling the Doctor to 'let him die'. *shudder*
** "I've lived too long". This realization is what convinces the Doctor to make the sacrifice. The obsession to continue living despite the fallout to the innocent is what was driven Rassilon to the Ultimate Sanction. Turning into Rassilon scares the Doctor more than being hit with half a million radons.
** This whole episode is more tragic in retrospect with the ret-con events of the 50th anniversary special affecting the Doctor's regenerations. The Doctor regenerates, having tried as hard as he could to avoid it and we now know that it was his last regeneration in that cycle: Ten knew he was regenerating for the last time. And he could do nothing to stop it.

[[AC:"The Eleventh Hour"]]
* Kids, see that crack in your wall? It's got a murderous shapeshifting alien behind it which looks like the hybrid of a moray eel and [[Franchise/{{Alien}} xenomorph.]] And if you look into the crack there is a giant eye that will look back at you.
* One night that murderous alien made his way through the crack and ''into your home''. Where it went into hiding, without you knowing, for over ten years.
* ''Everything'' about Prisoner Zero. It's looks scary enough without the ParanoiaFuel linked to it. Anyone you know go into a coma recently? Prisoner Zero might be masquerading as them. In fact, it could be watching you...''right now...as you look at this page...'''''''and you won't even notice'''''. Thanks to Perception Filters, there could be many horrible things [[ParanoiaFuel you aren't noticing]]...
* [[spoiler:"Oh, I'm getting it wrong again, aren't I? So...many...mouths."]]
* The teeth of the transformed people are hugely creepy.
* The mixed up voices were creepier for some, especially when the little girl uses the woman's voice or the man barking instead of the dog, diving headfirst into the UncannyValley.
** The woman using the girl's voice to taunt the Doctor about the cracks in the Universe, then switching back to the correct voice, as if it did that on purpose. "The Doctor in the TARDIS doesn't know. ''Doesn't know~ Doesn't know~''" It's quite possible Prisoner Zero ''does'' know.
* There might also be hidden rooms in your house which you can't notice and which contain evil shapeshifting monsters. ''If you just look in the corner of your eye...''
* The sequence where Amy is going into Prisoner Zero's room, and the Doctor -- the Doctor! -- is absolutely terrified, ''screaming'' for her to turn back, and she just ''[[TooDumbToLive keeps going]]...'' "Walking down a hallway towards a door that shouldn't be there while someone screams not to open it? Hey, who needs sleep?"
* Prisoner Zero was in that room for 12 years and had forged a mental link with Amy strong enough to knock her out by the time she was an adult. What would having an alien creature who had done something so awful that it's guards are willing to destroy a planet to stop it do to the mind of a little girl as she grew up? Some fans have even pointed out Amy shows signs of mental illness. From that perspective, she really needed those psychologists.
* The Atraxi were willing to destroy an entire planet just to get rid of him. [[FridgeHorror Just what the hell]] [[NothingIsScarier did Prisoner Zero do]] for this extreme action?!
** The Doctor does make a fairly simple case that there must have been a less "extreme" method, since one would assume there must be a method for dealing with major convicts on planets that you can't just torch. In the process reminds us why he's so greatly feared as to get his own Pandorica.

[[AC:"The Beast Below"]]
* This episode has Smilers and their demonic frowns.
* And the Test Card F girl singing an IronicNurseryRhyme to the condemned...
-->'''Girl:''' A horse and a man, above, below./ One has a plan but both must go./ Mile after mile; above, beneath./ One has a smile, and one has teeth. / Though the man above might say hello, / Expect no love from the beast below! [''cue the elevator plummeting, then the floor opening'']
* "This, then, is what has been done to preserve the safety of the British people. May God have mercy on our souls."
* The end, when it's discovered what's so horribly wrong about the ship having no engines. It's not just that it oughtn't be moving, it's that they're [[TearJerker torturing a star whale who ''volunteered'' to help]], to achieve propulsion.
* The Doctor's immediate assumption that his only choice is to burn out the star whale's brain in order to save the humans and to spare the whale any further pain. This is a horrible choice--but two things rev it UpToEleven: the Doctor ''knows'' the creature is sentient, and the Doctor is telepathic. Yet he never once thinks of using his own abilities to communicate with the creature. He just jumps into "I must destroy" mode and ''never comes out of it.'' Now think about all the times that the Doctor has decided that there's only one thing he can do...and realize how many innocent sentient creatures may have been destroyed by the Doctor.
** It must have been a lot, considering it was revealed in the next season that an entire military group is devoted to defeating and killing him. Let's not forget that there was an entire order - The Silence - dedicated to ''preventing the Doctor from answering a pretty simple question''.
* At the end of the episode Amy points out that the Star Whale was a comparison to the Doctor's own willing nature to help humanity. So why was the Doctor so WILLING to end the creature's pain without consideration for its sentience? How often has the Doctor looked for a "painless way out" for all of his OWN suffering?
** The Smilers' faces are made of porcelain... And each face takes up 50% of the head... And there's -THREE- faces.
** That's not the creepy part. The creepy part is that ''the Smilers were '''[[NothingIsScarier never explained.]]'''''
* The fact that the Queen had lived through her 10 year reign ''many'' times, each time discovering the secret and being presented with this option:
--->[[AC:(forget) (abdicate)]]

[[AC:"Victory of the Daleks"]]
* In your brightest moment, you're told that your inventions are actually planetary exterminators, every single thing about you is a lie, and that you're a bomb that's gonna blow up in a few minutes.
* Guess why it's called "Victory"? That's right, because the Daleks ''win''.
* When the 'Ironside' is introduced: "I-AM-YOUR-SOL-DIER." Not again. (See classic Season 4 for the reference)
** Watch in hindsight, knowing their plan. That is distinctly a note of smugness in those mechanical tones - it ''knows'' they've set it up so that the Doctor will lose this time and it's already rubbing his face in it.

[[AC:"The Time of Angels"/"Flesh and Stone"]]
* Look in an Angel's eyes long enough, and it can come out of the image you have of it ''in your brain''. Now think back to how many times there have been close-ups of the Angels' faces, and suddenly those statues are ''even more terrifying''. And this happens to Amy.
** "If [they] have two heads, [[OhCrap then why don't the statues?]]"
* Angel Bob delights in providing nightmare fuel:
** "Bob, keep running but tell me, how did you escape?" "I didn't escape, sir. The angels killed me, too. They broke my neck." Scariest. Conversation. Ever. What makes it really creepy was how emotionless he said it. He was being so scared in the beginning that the monotone makes you KNOW that something's horribly wrong.
** "And when you say you're coming, you mean..." "That's right sir, the angels are coming.". Scariest part of the episode, hands down.
** When the Doctor asks Angel Bob why the Angel in Amy's mind is forcing her to count down. "To make her afraid, Sir." "Yes, but why?" "For fun, Sir."
* The Doctor has to shoot the globe that's keeping an entire horde of Angels at bay.
* The soldiers shooting at the Angels in the tunnel... not because they actually expect the bullets to work, but to use the muzzle flash to light them up.
* The Doctor, Amy, River, Father Octavian and the Clerics running through the ''Byzantium'', having to periodically ''shut the lights off'' in order to open the doors.
* The [[HellIsThatNoise horrible, demonic screeching]] that passes for the Angels' laughter.
* The Doctor and River leaving Amy, who must keep her eyes shut at all times or the Angel inside her head will get free, and the Clerics alone with the Angels in the forest. The [[NegativeSpaceWedgie crack]] seems to be calling to the Clerics -- who walk over and are ''rewritten out of time'', like they ''never existed''. Amy is left completely alone, essentially blind, and must walk through the forest full of Angels as if she can see, because only the illusion that she might be able to see them is keeping the Angels from attacking.
** The crack beginning to open is terrifying. As the Clerics are keeping tabs on the Angels, a terribly creepy sound echoes through the forest and the time energy gushes out. Immediately after that, the Angels become almost inconsequential.
** The Doctor explaining what the time energy will do to Amy: "If the time energy catches up with you, you will never have been born. It will erase every moment of your existence. ''You will never have lived '''at all'''.''
** The crack is ''widening'' -- and it can RetGone people.
* When [[FateWorseThanDeath just dying is a pretty good outcome]] (see also "The Big Bang"), things are pretty firmly in NF territory.
* The Angels move in the most creepy, unsettling way imaginable. Worse, Amy has her eyes closed the entire time, and then she drops her communicator And when the barrier sealing off the forest rises up [[FromBadToWorse there's an army of angels just standing there. Who's at the front to greet them? Bob, the one who told the Doctor his neck was snapped and the angels were coming]]''.
** That nightmarish effect of the moving angels isn't created by CGI; the moving statues are all [[http://www.radiotimes.com/shows/doctor-who/gallery/weeping-angel/ actual actresses]] in UncannyValley makeup.

[[AC:"The Pandorica Opens"/"The Big Bang"]]
* The whole idea of the Alliance: Daleks, Cybus Cybermen, Sycorax, Silurians, Hoix, the Weevils out of ''Torchwood'', Autons...
** [[UpToEleven Even worse.]] All of the Doctor's enemies (and some other aliens) gang up on him and lock him in the Pandorica, which was built to prevent him apparently blowing up the universe. ''It didn't work.''
* "There was a goblin, or a trickster... Or a warrior... A nameless, terrible thing, soaked in the blood of a billion galaxies. The most feared being in all the cosmos. And nothing could stop it or hold it, or reason with it. One day it would just drop out of the sky and tear down your world." This is the description of the monster in the Pandorica, and ''it's the Doctor''. This is a description of the Doctor as he is seen by his enemies. Think about that.
* Also from ''The Pandorica Opens'', the Cyberman's helmet springing open to reveal the rotting human skull inside. It's attempting to acquire a new body by sealing Amy's head inside it! "You will be assimilated".
* After listening to the Doctor ''begging and pleading'' to his enemies to be let out of the Pandorica to save the universe, then panning out to see ''every single star exploding'' and darkness and silence covering everything, ''THE FUCKING BACKGROUND MUSIC SHUTS OFF'' and the scene fades to black in silence.
* The outcome of a [[NamesToRunAwayFromReallyFast a Total Event Collapse.]] The Earth and the Moon are the only things left. Not just that it's the only planet left, but it's the only planet [[RetGone to have ''ever existed.'']] Every single alien race, good or bad, never came to be. Earth is utterly alone, with the only intelligence left being the Silurians. Thing get worse when what's left starts suffering the same fate.
* Oh,and here's something [[SarcasmMode you may like.]] The Cyberman said that "all universes" will be deleted. That's right, [[ApocalypseHow a Class Z.]] And if TheMultiverse truly exists, this means ''all of creation'' was wiped out during "The Big Bang". [[TheFourthWallWillNotProtectYou That includes our reality.]] ''[[TheFourthWallWillNotProtectYou WE NEVER EXISTED.]]''
* The Doctor hinting what he thinks happened to Amy's family: That they were erased by the crack, and judging by the number of rooms, that could easily include siblings she has no clue (n)ever existed.
* One more: Van Gogh's painting of the TARDIS exploding, with imagery eerily reminiscent of his magnum opus ''Starry Night''.
* "I'm sorry, my love."
** The "outside force" landing the TARDIS... with it's door facing a rock wall. On a place in space that is likely about as far from the Earth as the Sun. Thus probably Mars. Also, apparently at least the rock wall's edge was included in the TARDIS' time loop, since it remains even after the erasure of it's the universe's existance. Special design, or Hand Wave?
* The Doctor ''screaming'': "'''PLEASE LISTEN TO ME!!!'''" when the Pandorica closes. The Doctor has never sounded so desperately scared in his life.
** The Pandorica itself is terrifying when you think about it. [[AndIMustScream It's a very small box where you can't move, not even your head. And it won't let you die, because that would be "escaping".]] Now imagine what would've happened if Rory hadn't freed the Doctor.
** "Lucky" Amy; she was "dead" the whole time. Lucky it didn't heal her upon entry... if you imagined what the Doctor would have gone through, what about Amy? Look what an apparition of an ancient and tortured Rory was like; and he wasn't immobile.
* Imagine you died. Killed. Gone forever. Then, suddenly, you're alive again, in an entirely different place, in an entirely different time, with everything that you've known being as distant as a dream. As if your entire life never happened... And then, you run into someone you thought didn't exist, someone you loved ''and they don't remember who you are.'' You desperately try to get them to remember, but before you can, your body, moving on its own, kills them. Not only do you have to live with killing the one person you can recover from your old life, but you are a false machine copy of who you think you are, and you're working for the bad guys.
** [[TearJerker Oh, Rory.]]
* "The Big Bang" gives us a half dead/half alive fossilized Dalek screaming "RESTORE! RESTORE! RESTORE!" as it tries to reboot itself.
** It also shoots the Doctor but fails to quite kill him instantly, leaving him wincing in pain for a good chunk of the episode.
* ''River Song'' is pretty scary now. She made a Dalek beg for mercy. A '''freakin' ''' ''Dalek''. She didn't just get it to beg - she got it to metaphorically roll over and scream for mama. You can actually hear in each iteration of the word 'mercy' its progression from 'OhCrap' to 'please don't kill me' to 'OHMYGODI'MABOUTTODIE!' And all in the same emotionless tone. Just be glad she's on our side. We believe...
** River Song. It's a combination of the fact that she not only killed a man, she killed "a good man. The best man I ever knew" and the fact that the last time she sees the Doctor in ''The Big Bang'' she tells him that soon he'll find out who she is and then "I'm sorry, but everything will change." Neither of those sound good.
** The question is, WHAT DID SHE DO TO THAT DALEK?
** "[[TranquilFury It died]]."
* Rory gets about as close to AndIMustScream as you can get while still fully mobile, standing guard over Amy for almost 2000 years, and not even being able to sleep through any of it. Of course, the fact that he takes this on willingly (and it's even his idea in the first place) also means it's a killer CrowningMomentOfAwesome, CrowningMomentOfHeartwarming, and {{Tearjerker}} as well.

[[AC: Series 4 - Silence in the Library/Forest of the Dead]]
* Silence in the Library/Forest of the Dead -- A two-part story penned by Creator/StevenMoffat, involving living carnivorous shadows in a giant space library, plus a cyberspace segment involving vanishing children and a woman with a [[http://tardis.wikia.com/wiki/File:Forest_Of_The_Dead.jpg warped face]].
** Apparently the little specks in bright light are Vashta Nerada, too.
** "Hey... ''who turned out the lights...?"'' Go ahead; ''[[http://lacer.files.wordpress.com/2008/05/silence-in-the-library.jpg shudder.]]''
** What makes "count your shadows" so horrifying is that it's not impossible to have two shadows. If you're standing between two light sources of similar brightness (Two lamps, or even two windows on different walls) you will have two shadows.
*** More the point that you almost never even notice your own shadow, even when you think about it.
*** It could be referring to the umbra of your shadow the darkest part. You can have multiple penumbras the lighter parts but the Vashta Nerada are pitch black. And you can't have two umbras.
** "The lights... are going... out..."
*** The 'Child Psychologist' says to a 'Child': [[WelcomeToTheRealWorld "The real world is a lie and your nightmares are real. "]]
** The Doctor saying that every creature in the universe has a ''irrational'' fear of the dark... only to explain that the fear ''isn't'' irrational.
** Oh god... The Vashta Narada exist on every world in the universe. Sometimes a person just goes missing....
*** It's also especially implied that they exist ''on earth''...
*** ''Implied''?!
---> '''The Doctor''': [Vashta Nerada] are the dust in sunbeams. ... They mostly live on roadkill, but sometimes a person goes into the dark...and doesn't come back...
** Let's not forget the line by the Doctor after they've fled from Proper Dave.
--->'''The Doctor''': [''to River''] You said there were five people alive in this room, right?\\
'''River''': Yes.\\
'''The Doctor''': [[MassOhCrap So why are there six...?]]\\

[[AC: Series 5 - The Eleventh Hour, The Beast Below, The Pandorica Opens/The Big Bang]]
* '''The Eleventh Hour'''
** Kids, see that crack in your wall? It's got a murderous shapeshifting alien behind it which looks like the hybrid of a moray eel and [[Franchise/{{Alien}} xenomorph.]] And if you look into the crack there is a giant eye that will look back at you.
** One night that murderous alien made his way through the crack and ''into your home''. Where it went into hiding, without you knowing, for over ten years.
** That crack ''will eat your Mum and Dad'' and [[Recap/DoctorWhoS31E5FleshAndStone it's getting bigger]].
** Moffat got the idea after seeing a crack in his son's bedroom wall. Yeah. That's right. He tailor-designed nightmare fuel for his own child! [[note]] According to the commentary for the episode, his son doesn't find the crack itself terribly frightening. Nonetheless, he bravely 'rolled up [his] sleeves and called a man to fill in the crack.' [[/note]]
** ''Everything'' about Prisoner Zero. It's looks scary enough without the ParanoiaFuel linked to it. Anyone you know go into a coma recently? Prisoner Zero might be masquerading as them. In fact, it could be watching you...''right now...as you look at this page...'''''''and you won't even notice'''''. Thanks to Perception Filters, there could be many horrible things [[ParanoiaFuel you aren't noticing]]...
** [[spoiler:"Oh, I'm getting it wrong again, aren't I? So...many...mouths."]]
** The teeth of the transformed people are hugely creepy.
** The mixed up voices were creepier for some, especially when the little girl uses the woman's voice or the man barking instead of the dog, diving headfirst into the UncannyValley.
*** The woman using the girl's voice to taunt the Doctor about the cracks in the Universe, then switching back to the correct voice, as if it did that on purpose. "The Doctor in the TARDIS doesn't know. ''Doesn't know~ Doesn't know~''" It's quite possible Prisoner Zero ''does'' know.
** There might also be hidden rooms in your house which you can't notice and which contain evil shapeshifting monsters. ''If you just look in the corner of your eye...''
** The sequence where Amy is going into Prisoner Zero's room, and the Doctor -- the Doctor! -- is absolutely terrified, ''screaming'' for her to turn back, and she just ''[[TooDumbToLive keeps going]]...'' "Walking down a hallway towards a door that shouldn't be there while someone screams not to open it? Hey, who needs sleep?"
** Prisoner Zero was in that room for 12 years and had forged a mental link with Amy strong enough to knock her out by the time she was an adult. What would having an alien creature who had done something so awful that it's guards are willing to destroy a planet to stop it do to the mind of a little girl as she grew up? Some fans have even pointed out Amy shows signs of mental illness. From that perspective, she really needed those psychologists.
** The Atraxi were willing to destroy an entire planet just to get rid of him. [[FridgeHorror Just what the hell]] [[NothingIsScarier did Prisoner Zero do]] for this extreme action?!
*** The Doctor does make a fairly simple case that there must have been a less "extreme" method, since one would assume there must be a method for dealing with major convicts on planets that you can't just torch. In the process reminds us why he's so greatly feared as to get his own Pandorica.
** The picture taken by the Hubble Space telescope a few years ago. [[http://www.nasa.gov/mission_pages/spitzer/news/spitzer-20061027.html]]
* '''The Beast Below'''
** This episode has Smilers and their demonic frowns.
** And the Test Card F girl singing an IronicNurseryRhyme to the condemned...
--->'''Girl''': A horse and a man, above, below./ One has a plan but both must go./ Mile after mile; above, beneath./ One has a smile, and one has teeth. / Though the man above might say hello, / Expect no love from the beast below! [''cue the elevator plummeting, then the floor opening'']
** "This, then, is what has been done to preserve the safety of the British people. May God have mercy on our souls."
** Oh, god, most of The Beast Below was freaky--well, until we get near the end when it's discovered what's so horribly wrong about the ship having no engines. It's not just that it oughtn't be moving, it's that they're [[TearJerker torturing a star whale who ''volunteered'' to help]], to achieve propulsion.. The Smilers are creepy in the pre-title sequence alone.
*** The Doctor's immediate assumption that his only choice is to to burn out the star whale's brain in order to save the humans and to spare the whale any further pain. This is a horrible choice--but two things rev it UpToEleven: the Doctor ''knows'' the creature is sentient, and the Doctor is telepathic. Yet he never once thinks of using his own abilities to communicate with the creature. He just jumps into "I must destroy" mode and ''never comes out of it.'' Now think about all the times that the Doctor has decided that there's only one thing he can do...and realize how many innocent sentient creatures may have been destroyed by the Doctor.
*** It must have been a lot, considering it was revealed in the next season that an entire military group is devoted to defeating and killing him. Let's not forget that there was an entire order - The Silence - dedicated to ''preventing the Doctor from answering a pretty simple question''.
** At the end of the episode Amy points out that the Star Whale was a comparison to the Doctor's own willing nature to help humanity. So why was the Doctor so WILLING to end the creature's pain without consideration for its sentience? How often has the Doctor looked for a "painless way out" for all of his OWN suffering?
*** The Smilers' faces are made of porcelain... And each face takes up 50% of the head... And there's -THREE- faces.
*** That's not the creepy part. The creepy part is that ''the Smilers were '''[[NothingIsScarier never explained.]]'''''
** The fact that the Queen had lived through her 10 year reign ''many'' times, each time discovering the secret and being presented with this option:

This is the description of the monster in the Pandorica, and ''it's the Doctor''. This is a description of the Doctor as he is seen by his enemies. Think about that.
** Also from ''The Pandorica Opens'', the Cyberman's helmet springing open to reveal the rotting human skull inside. It's attempting to acquire a new body by sealing Amy's head inside it! "You will be assimilated".
** After listening to the Doctor ''begging and pleading'' to his enemies to be let out of the Pandorica to save the universe, then panning out to see ''every single star exploding'' and darkness and silence covering everything, ''THE FUCKING BACKGROUND MUSIC SHUTS OFF'' and the scene fades to black in silence.
** The outcome of a [[NamesToRunAwayFromReallyFast a Total Event Collapse.]] The Earth and the Moon are the only things left.

Earth is utterly alone, with the only intelligence left being the Silurians. Thing get worse when what's left starts suffering the same fate.
** Oh,and here's something [[SarcasmMode you may like.]] The Cyberman said that "all universes" will be deleted.

[[TheFourthWallWillNotProtectYou That includes our reality.]] ''[[TheFourthWallWillNotProtectYou WE NEVER EXISTED.]]''
** The Doctor hinting what he thinks happened to Amy's family: That they were erased by the crack, and judging by the number of rooms, that could easily include siblings she has no clue (n)ever existed.
** One more: Van Gogh's painting of the TARDIS exploding, with imagery eerily reminiscent of his magnum opus Starry Night.
** "I'm sorry, my love."
*** The "outside force" landing the TARDIS... with it's door facing a rock wall. On a place in space that is likely about as far from the Earth as the Sun. Thus probably Mars. Also, apparently at least the rock wall's edge was included in the TARDIS' time loop, since it remains even after the erasure of it's the universe's existance. Special design, or Hand Wave?
*** Eleven ''screaming'': "'''PLEASE LISTEN TO ME!!!'''" when the Pandorica closes. The Doctor had never sounded so desperately scared in his life.
** The Pandorica itself is terrifying when you think about it. [[AndIMustScream It's a very small box where you can't move, not even your head. And it won't let you die, because that would be "escaping".]] Now imagine what would've happened if Rory hadn't freed the Doctor.
*** "Lucky" Amy; she was "dead" the whole time. Lucky it didn't heal her upon entry... if you imagined what the Doctor would have gone through, what about Amy? Look what an apparition of an ancient and tortured Rory was like; and he wasn't immobile.
* Imagine you died. Killed. Gone forever. Then, suddenly, you're alive again, in an entirely different place, in an entirely different time, with everything that you've known being as distant as a dream. As if your entire life never happened... And then, you run into someone you thought didn't exist, someone you loved ''and they don't remember who you are.'' You desperately try to get them to remember, but before you can, your body, moving on its own, kills them. Not only do you have to live with killing the one person you can recover from your old life, but you are a false machine copy of who you think you are, and you're working for the bad guys.
** [[TearJerker Oh, Rory.]]
* "The Big Bang" gives us a half dead/half alive fossilized Dalek screaming "RESTORE! RESTORE! RESTORE!" as it tries to reboot itself.
** It also shoots the Doctor but fails to quite kill him instantly, leaving him wincing in pain for a good chunk of the episode.
** ''River Song'' is pretty scary now. She made a Dalek beg for mercy. A '''freakin' ''' ''Dalek''. She didn't just get it to beg - she got it to metaphorically roll over and scream for mama. You can actually hear in each iteration of the word 'mercy' its progression from 'OhCrap' to 'please don't kill me' to 'OHMYGODI'MABOUTTODIE!' And all in the same emotionless tone. Just be glad she's on our side. We believe...
*** River Song. It's a combination of the fact that she not only killed a man, she killed "a good man. The best man I ever knew" and the fact that the last time she sees the Doctor in ''The Big Bang'' she tells him that soon he'll find out who she is and then "I'm sorry, but everything will change." Neither of those sound good.
*** The question is, WHAT DID SHE DO TO THAT DALEK?
*** "[[TranquilFury It died]]."
** Rory gets about as close to AndIMustScream as you can get while still fully mobile, standing guard over Amy for almost 2000 years, and not even being able to sleep through any of it. Of course, the fact that he takes this on willingly (and it's even his idea in the first place) also means it's a killer CrowningMomentOfAwesome, CrowningMomentOfHeartwarming, and {{Tearjerker}} as well.

[[AC: Series 4 - Silence [[AC:The Cracks in the Library/Forest of the Dead]]
Time]]
* Silence in the Library/Forest of the Dead They're everywhere. They [[RetGone eat people]] -- A two-part story penned by Creator/StevenMoffat, involving living carnivorous shadows in a giant space library, plus a cyberspace segment involving vanishing children and a woman with a [[http://tardis.wikia.com/wiki/File:Forest_Of_The_Dead.jpg warped face]].
** Apparently the little specks in bright light are Vashta Nerada, too.
** "Hey... ''who turned out the lights...?"'' Go ahead; ''[[http://lacer.files.wordpress.com/2008/05/silence-in-the-library.jpg shudder.]]''
** What makes "count your shadows" so horrifying is that it's not impossible to have two shadows. If you're standing between two light sources of similar brightness (Two lamps, or even two windows on different walls) you will have two shadows.
*** More the point that you almost never even notice your own shadow, even when you think about it.
*** It could be referring to the umbra of your shadow the darkest part. You can have multiple penumbras the lighter parts but the Vashta Nerada are pitch black. And you can't have two umbras.
** "The lights... are going... out..."
*** The 'Child Psychologist' says to a 'Child': [[WelcomeToTheRealWorld "The real world is a lie
places, and your nightmares are real. "]]
things, and events.
** The Doctor saying that every creature in the universe has a ''irrational'' fear of the dark... only to explain that the fear ''isn't'' irrational.
** Oh god... The Vashta Narada exist on every world in the universe. Sometimes a person just goes missing....
*** It's also especially implied that they exist ''on earth''...
*** ''Implied''?!
---> '''The Doctor''': [Vashta Nerada] are the dust in sunbeams. ... They mostly live on roadkill, but sometimes a person goes into the dark...and doesn't come back...
** Let's not forget the line by the Doctor after they've fled from Proper Dave.
--->'''The Doctor''': [''to River''] You said there were five people alive in this room, right?\\
'''River''': Yes.\\
'''The Doctor''': [[MassOhCrap So why are there six...?]]\\
[''beat; everyone turns around slowly'']\\
'''Proper Dave/Vashta Nerada''': Hey! Who turned out the lights?
* A person's last dying thoughts getting [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Fnei3jLYCFE stuck in the suit radio]] until they fade: "Icecream, Icescream, I scream..."

[[AC: Series 5 - The Eleventh Hour, The Beast Below, The Pandorica Opens/The Big Bang]]
* '''The Eleventh Hour'''
** Kids, see that
crack in your wall? It's got a murderous shapeshifting alien behind it which looks like the hybrid of a moray eel Amy's wall ate ''her parents'', and [[Franchise/{{Alien}} xenomorph.]] And if you look into the crack there is a giant eye that she never knew.
** When they eat something, only someone with RippleEffectProofMemory
will look back at you.
** One night that murderous alien made his way through
remember.
* In "Flesh and Stone", they start ''widening'', and erase all of
the crack and ''into your home''. Where it went into hiding, without you knowing, for over ten years.
** That crack ''will eat your Mum and Dad'' and [[Recap/DoctorWhoS31E5FleshAndStone it's getting bigger]].
**
clerics.
*
Moffat got the idea after seeing a crack in his son's bedroom wall. Yeah. That's right. He tailor-designed nightmare fuel for his own child! [[note]] According to the commentary for the episode, his son doesn't find the crack itself terribly frightening. Nonetheless, he bravely 'rolled up [his] sleeves and called a man to fill in the crack.' [[/note]]
** ''Everything'' about Prisoner Zero. It's looks scary enough without the ParanoiaFuel linked to it. Anyone you know go into a coma recently? Prisoner Zero might be masquerading as them. In fact, it could be watching you...''right now...as you look at this page...'''''''and you won't even notice'''''. Thanks to Perception Filters, there could be many horrible things [[ParanoiaFuel you aren't noticing]]...
** [[spoiler:"Oh, I'm getting it wrong again, aren't I? So...many...mouths."]]
** The teeth of the transformed people are hugely creepy.
** The mixed up voices were creepier for some, especially when the little girl uses the woman's voice or the man barking instead of the dog, diving headfirst into the UncannyValley.
*** The woman using the girl's voice to taunt the Doctor about the cracks in the Universe, then switching back to the correct voice, as if it did that on purpose. "The Doctor in the TARDIS doesn't know. ''Doesn't know~ Doesn't know~''" It's quite possible Prisoner Zero ''does'' know.
** There might also be hidden rooms in your house which you can't notice and which contain evil shapeshifting monsters. ''If you just look in the corner of your eye...''
** The sequence where Amy is going into Prisoner Zero's room, and the Doctor -- the Doctor! -- is absolutely terrified, ''screaming'' for her to turn back, and she just ''[[TooDumbToLive keeps going]]...'' "Walking down a hallway towards a door that shouldn't be there while someone screams not to open it? Hey, who needs sleep?"
** Prisoner Zero was in that room for 12 years and had forged a mental link with Amy strong enough to knock her out by the time she was an adult. What would having an alien creature who had done something so awful that it's guards are willing to destroy a planet to stop it do to the mind of a little girl as she grew up? Some fans have even pointed out Amy shows signs of mental illness. From that perspective, she really needed those psychologists.
** The Atraxi were willing to destroy an entire planet just to get rid of him. [[FridgeHorror Just what the hell]] [[NothingIsScarier did Prisoner Zero do]] for this extreme action?!
*** The Doctor does make a fairly simple case that there must have been a less "extreme" method, since one would assume there must be a method for dealing with major convicts on planets that you can't just torch. In the process reminds us why he's so greatly feared as to get his own Pandorica.

* '''The Beast Below'''
** This episode has Smilers and their demonic frowns.
** And the Test Card F girl singing an IronicNurseryRhyme to the condemned...
--->'''Girl''': A horse and a man, above, below./ One has a plan but both must go./ Mile after mile; above, beneath./ One has a smile, and one has teeth. / Though the man above might say hello, / Expect no love from the beast below! [''cue the elevator plummeting, then the floor opening'']
** "This, then, is what has been done to preserve the safety of the British people. May God have mercy on our souls."
** Oh, god, most of The Beast Below was freaky--well, until we get near the end when it's discovered what's so horribly wrong about the ship having no engines. It's not just that it oughtn't be moving, it's that they're [[TearJerker torturing a star whale who ''volunteered'' to help]], to achieve propulsion.. The Smilers are creepy in the pre-title sequence alone.
*** The Doctor's immediate assumption that his only choice is to to burn out the star whale's brain in order to save the humans and to spare the whale any further pain. This is a horrible choice--but two things rev it UpToEleven: the Doctor ''knows'' the creature is sentient, and the Doctor is telepathic. Yet he never once thinks of using his own abilities to communicate with the creature. He just jumps into "I must destroy" mode and ''never comes out of it.'' Now think about all the times that the Doctor has decided that there's only one thing he can do...and realize how many innocent sentient creatures may have been destroyed by the Doctor.
*** It must have been a lot, considering it was revealed in the next season that an entire military group is devoted to defeating and killing him. Let's not forget that there was an entire order - The Silence - dedicated to ''preventing the Doctor from answering a pretty simple question''.
** At the end of the episode Amy points out that the Star Whale was a comparison to the Doctor's own willing nature to help humanity. So why was the Doctor so WILLING to end the creature's pain without consideration for its sentience? How often has the Doctor looked for a "painless way out" for all of his OWN suffering?
*** The Smilers' faces are made of porcelain... And each face takes up 50% of the head... And there's -THREE- faces.
*** That's not the creepy part. The creepy part is that ''the Smilers were '''[[NothingIsScarier never explained.]]'''''

** The AlternateUniverse Cybermen's origins with the "upgrade or be deleted" scene. So much screaming and death and terror and the Doctor knows that this could spread across the galaxy.
** The fact that the Doctor is terrified, actually terrified of the Cybermen, to the extent that he surrenders without a fight. At first, any way. And the way he shows how terrified he is isn't matched again for the rest of the Tenth Doctor's run. He's that terrified of them.

** You're walking around, minding your own business, and suddenly your mind shuts down and you mindlessly walk into an incinerator. The one shot of that was... ''horrific''.
** The screams and agonised howls as we get a shot of the Cyber Conversion machinery from the victims POV. It's all whirring saw blades and vicious knives cutting away everything human. Now think about that...the machines are stripping the flesh and bone of the victim removing the brain and putting it inside a metal suit; the victim is ''conscious'' and ''feels every second of it''. No wonder they go insane when their emotions are restored. The trauma would drive even Chuck Norris mad. Somehow the creepiest part of the scene is still Mr Crane bobbing away to the "The Lion Sleeps Tonight" as he calmly oversees the conversion process.
** Staying with the conversion factory, those pre-recorded messages playing throughout. "[[AC:Chamber 6 now open for human upgrading. All reject stock will be incinerated.]]" Brrr... And it raises the question of who the hell recorded those?

[[AC:"Rise
of Steel"
**
the Cybermen"/"The Age of Steel"]]
*
The AlternateUniverse Cybermen's origins with the "upgrade or be deleted" scene. So much screaming and death and terror and the Doctor knows that this could spread across the galaxy.
** * The fact that the Doctor is terrified, actually terrified of the Cybermen, to the extent that he surrenders without a fight. At first, any way. And the way he shows how terrified he is isn't matched again for the rest of the Tenth Doctor's run. He's that terrified of them.
** * The scene where the Doctor has to kill a Cyberman who he discovers was a bride at her wedding,
** * The way the Doctor defeats the Cybermen. Allowing them to feel once again, to realize what they have truly become! You know out there one of them is AU Jackie Tyler!
** * You're walking around, minding your own business, and suddenly your mind shuts down and you mindlessly walk into an incinerator. The one shot of that was... ''horrific''.
** * The screams and agonised howls as we get a shot of the Cyber Conversion machinery from the victims POV. It's all whirring saw blades and vicious knives cutting away everything human. Now think about that...the machines are stripping the flesh and bone of the victim removing the brain and putting it inside a metal suit; the victim is ''conscious'' and ''feels every second of it''. No wonder they go insane when their emotions are restored. The trauma would drive even Chuck Norris mad. Somehow the creepiest part of the scene is still Mr Crane bobbing away to the "The Lion Sleeps Tonight" as he calmly oversees the conversion process.
** * Staying with the conversion factory, those pre-recorded messages playing throughout. "[[AC:Chamber 6 now open for human upgrading. All reject stock will be incinerated.]]" Brrr... And it raises the question of who the hell recorded those?
** * Before the Cybermen, there's the scene where everyone in that one street stopped completely still as Cybus Industries downloaded the daily news package. Absolutely everyone. They even laugh at the same time. It's just unsettlingly creepy.
creepy.

[[AC:"The Idiot's Lantern"]]
* "Idiot's Lantern"
**
The faceless zombies and the killer TV saying "Goodnight children everywhere" while absorbing a panicking Rose's soul... in an episode written by [[TheLeagueOfGentlemen Mark Gatiss]].
** * The Government hoarding them away. The Doctor said it was like Soviet Russia.
** * Killer-TV-Lady sucking her fingers, screaming/begging "''Feed me!''" is terrifying.

[[AC:"The Impossible Planet"/"The Satan Pit"]]
* "Impossible Planet" and "Satan Pit"
**
The Ood of the far future (and the scene where a black hole eats a system with a "billion years old civilization" in it), along with {{Satan}} himself (whatever it was) together with the man he possessed.
** * After that female crewmember is blown out into space and they find her floating overhead the space station and towards the black hole, it looks like her corpse is ''waving'' to the others to come join her, or waving ''goodbye''.
** * The possessed Toby is what's really scary, which is very understandable. The body was trapped at the center of a planet which is circling a black hole. Its body can't even touch someone standing right in front of it. Its mind is not trapped. Its mind can take over the Ood and the station's speakers and people. Its mind scarier than its body.



** The moment when he looks down and realizes that the demonic hieroglyphics are ''all over his body''.....
* "Love and Monsters"
** The group of the Doctor's fans who form a fanclub and end up absorbed by an alien to die gruesomely (although one survives, as a face in a street tile...). It's hammered in that they're ''people'', with friends and family, especially when you see them having fun together in LINDA.
** Take that a step further. The survivor exists as a face in a one-inch thick street tile, and her boyfriend tells the viewer they still have a sex life. One part nightmare, one part squick. Can I get a brain bleach chaser with that?

* Even worse is in the episode ''Army of Ghosts'', where the "ghosts" are revealed to be friendly ... and seeing how ghosts are everywhere - these ghosts turned out to be Cybermen. What makes it worse is during the "ghost shift" that reveals the Cybermen, you can hear their walking sound. Imagine walking and seeing some "ghost" and it turns out to be a death robot ... worldwide.

[[AC: Series 1 - The Empty Child/The Doctor Dances]]
* The gas mask people from "The Empty Child" / "The Doctor Dances"
** "End of the tape. [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iNQy9Y4-IwY It ran out about 30 seconds ago."]]
** "I sent it to its room. ''[[WhamLine This is its room.]]''"
** Then there's the FridgeHorror part once your mind finishes digesting the story. Imagine having your face infused into a gas mask (possibly painfully), having part of your memory damaged to the point where you can't recall how your mother looks like but you're so frightened that it's all you want thanks to basic human instinct which you still have, and worst of all, your mother not wanting to admit you being her child anymore because you're this ugly monstrosity that's only human neck-down now. BodyHorror and ParentalAbandonment horror at it's worst.

[[AC: Series 2 - The Girl in the Fireplace]]

* The eighteenth century French girl who grows up and dies with the prospect of meeting the Doctor only a few times while only a handful of minutes pass for the Doctor himself (or the "clockwork robots" stalking her, especially when disguised, and the way they repair their space ship structural/electronic/critical damage with human organs).
** The real chilling bit was how entirely believable the scenario was. Not from the sci-fi perspective, but consider it this way: they were repair drones, and the ship was in need of repair. It's their one purpose, their only reason to exist. And, as one said, "We did not have the parts." And he just repeats that, over and over, until the Doctor gets it, "...no one told them the crew was off limits." With an AI that single-minded, it seems horrifyingly probable for the prime directive to supercede things like "human life."
*** This could even be a ZerothLawRebellion: The ship is badly damaged, and too far from any sort of rescue for external help to reach it in time. In such a scenario, the AI wouldn't even be clearly wrong to use the crew as replacement parts, since they ''will'' die if the ship isn't repaired.
** This scene takes a few seconds to sink in, but when it does, [[MemeticMutation you'll shit bricks]]:
--->'''The Doctor:''' [looks at a broken clock] Okay, ''that's'' scary.\\
'''Reinette:''' You're scared of a broken clock?\\
'''The Doctor:''' Just a bit scared, yeah. Just a tiny bit. 'Cause you see, if this clock's broken, and it's the only one in the room, then ''[[OhCrap what's that ticking]]?''
** The scene where the Doctor looks under Reinette's bed is already a pretty touchy subject for anyone who's had night terrors, but when the camera slowly pans up to show that all-out shit-inducing nightmare mask, hidden in the shadows just so, you find yourself cowering under the covers.
** The very practical approach to organ harvesting "I will not set foot there again." "We do not require your feet."

* ''Heaven Sent'':
** The confession dial takes the Doctor into a giant castle, with no one else in it... except the Veil. It is a literally created from [[NightmareFuel the Doctor's Nightmares]], based on a old woman who died, and was covered in veils. The creature is endlessly pursuing the Doctor throughout the Castle, and it never stops moving. It always keeps a slow, dragging pace, emphasizing the inevitability. Nothing stops it... except the Doctor's confessions. And he must confess truths that he has never revealed before.
** The horrific realization that the skulls of the ocean were all those of the Doctor. Ever since he first showed up, he is been constantly going through the same motions over and over again, always finding the hidden room, getting zapped by the Veil as he punches it, then agonizingly crawling back to the teleport room, where he has to summon a 'copy' of himself, before he dies. That's when we realize that he has been doing this for thousands of years already.

* The Doctor's fuming anger when Danny Pink addresses him as a superior officer to provoke him. Knowing what we know of The Time War, Danny's barbs about the Doctor being a member of the aristocracy who started conflicts, while "grunts" like Danny were left to clean up the mess, probably struck more than a few nerves. Especially when considering that Four was the one who unwittingly instigated The Time War. The Doctor was practically foaming at the mouth, telling Danny "You do not call me 'Sir'!" and especially, "GET OUT OF MY TARDIS!" Rarely do we see that kind of rage from the Doctor, and it's seldom a good thing when we do.

** The Valeyard is an amalgamation of the Doctor's darker nature. He may not be the the Doctor's future regeneration, but he is still the Doctor. And considering what the Doctor is like when he is a good guy with morals and compassion, think about how dangerous something like the Valeyard could be....

** She set herself up as a merciless tyrant over a sanctuary crawling with alien refugees, assaulted one of them to make it look like a murder, set a death mark on an innocent bystander and framed him for the faux murder in order to lure The Doctor into a trap. And capped it by getting his [[MoralityPet Companion]] killed. How many of The Doctor's {{BerserkButton}}s did she just press in the space of five minutes? She's going to be looking over her shoulder for the rest of her unnatural existence. Being immortal isn't going to protect her a whit - remember the Family of Blood? He can do a lot worse than kill you.

** While she's dreaming, Clara being surrounded by the Doctor's chalkboard bearing the warning message, "DYING", multiplied a dozen times over.
