** In the same vein, [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6QGbsNIZ-uo the first title sequence]] of the new series to bring back the tradition of featuring the Doctor's face was in season 7B, which was a kind of DarkerAndEdgier theme/opening than the previous one. It features a quick lightning flash of 11's face, looking kind of grainy and creepy, and it's probably a little jarring if you're not expecting it.

* Consider that the Doctor is a scientist. In most incarnations, he seems to generally enjoy tinkering with gadgets and chemicals as a pastime. Davros, meanwhile, never seems to do ''anything'' that doesn't involve twisting and perverting science into something disgusting and harmful; flesh-eating viruses, mutations, reality bombs, Colony Sarff, and pretty much the entirety of Revelation of the Daleks. Basically, every time the Doctor encounters Davros, he has to watch his favorite hobby turned into something ''sick.''

* ''The Happiness Patrol'', whilst on first viewing is pretty innocuous and has a really unconvincing villain in the shape of the Kandy Man (a giant 'Bertie Bassett' shaped thing, that isn't quite a robot, and definitely isn't nice) is actually really fucked up. ** The story revolves around Helen A and her husband/partner Joseph C who rule a colony on the planet Terra Alpha where it is illegal to be unhappy. The scene that's really nightmarish is when a man is executed by Helen A and Joseph C for the crime of unhappiness. A huge pipe is lowered over his head and molten candy is poured over his head. It's not clear if it's boiling hot, or if he drowns with his lungs full of molten sugar, but either way it's very disturbing. This is made even worse when (just before the camera cuts to the next scene) Joseph C leans forward, scrapes some candy off the corpse with his finger and eats it with a grin on his face. Urgh.

** And also, when the Doctor was yelling at Fenric about how stupid Ace was and how much he hated her, while Ace was on her knees, crying.

I wouldn't have wasted my time on her, unless I had to use her somehow.

** The robotic knights from outer space burn people to oblivion with cross-shaped beams for non-compliance. Not only is that frightening, it takes place in 1190, during TheCrusades, which involved similarly gruesome acts of murder [[DoesThisRemindYouOfAnything under the abused symbol of the cross.]]

*** Making it worse is that the Master was a megalomaniac psychopath 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.

** When Fenric decides that he doesn't need two of the Haemovores, he has the Ancient One turn them to dust.

** But who can say that it still can't be undone? Remember: Gallifrey Fails No More! The Doctor's story is far from over...

** You begin your day with an exhilarating adventure with your best friend whom you love, about whose safety and survival you've been increasingly worried about. The two of you are asked for help by a young father and after some investigation you easily deduce the origin of the problem. You also realize early on that it's a con game. Easy, peasy. Unknown to you, however, your friend has gone rogue and decided [[StupidSacrifice to take the chronolock upon herself]] as strategy to keep the young father safe. You discover this too late, and there is nothing you can do but hug her, receive some words of encouragement from her ... and then watch her die, screaming before being teleported god knows where without time to so much as grieve. Not a good way to end your day.
