* In one episode, it's mentioned that the Brigadier once somehow earned the gratitude of a woman named Doris; during the seventh Doctor's run, it's revealed "she finally caught him" and they are now married. (A comic explains this.)
* The "daisiest daisy" monologue is an extremely rare glimpse into the Doctor's childhood on Gallifrey (a house halfway up a mountain, near where an old hermit lived under the tree). The events he describes took place on 'the blackest day of my life' - but he never actually mentions ''why'' he felt so depressed. As of "Listen", however, we ''may'' have been given a clue - [[spoiler: fear of being forced to join the army, since no-one thought he'd make a Time Lord.]]

* In "The Sunmakers", the PA announces that the Gatherer has offered 5,000 telmars for the Doctor's capture. A couple of workers marvel at this, until the Doctor (who's been standing behind them) scoffs, "Peanuts! The Droge of the Gabriellides once offered an entire star system for my head!"
* The Doctor's already quite familiar with Leonardo da Vinci when he goes back in time to meet him in "City of Death".

* For the entirety of his tenure, the Doctor wears a stalk of celery on his left lapel, pinning it on in "Castrovalva". In his final serial, "The Caves of Androzani", we learn this incarnation suffers allergies from Praxis gasses in star systems. If he comes in range of these gases, the celery turns purple and he eats its to (presumably) act as an immunity booster to the allergens. However, we never see this happen on screen, because this was a last minute explanation written in to justify his habit of pinning the celery to his clothing.

* The Steven Moffat era has made Noodle Incidents a RunningGag.
* The Time War that destroyed Gallifrey and ([[JokerImmunity supposedly]]) the Daleks was treated in this fashion for eight years; we were given lots of intriguing hints and abstract reveals as to what happened and who did what (with mentions of the Fall of Arcadia and the burning of the Cruciform -- neither of which were seen in the series -- and it being stated in "Dalek" that the Doctor had no choice but to do the deed himself), but we didn't see what actually occurred, though [[Recap/DoctorWhoS30E17E18TheEndOfTime "The End of Time"]] explains some of it. The Fiftieth Anniversary special [[Recap/DoctorWho50thASTheDayOfTheDoctor "The Day of the Doctor"]] finally revealed more of the backstory, including the Fall of Arcadia, but other parts such as the burning of the Cruciform remain unexplained.

* Missy references a couple of noodle incidents when she meets up with Clara in "[[Recap/DoctorWhoS35E1TheMagiciansApprentice The Magician's Apprentice]]": the Cloister Wars and the time the Doctor stole the moon and the president of Galifrey's wife. The second one is mentioned again in "Hell Bent" where it turns out to be a mis-telling of the time The Doctor stole the moon and the president's daughter.

* Events of the show are regularly presented as noodle incidents to other people InUniverse. For instance, when Agatha Christie says in [[Recap/DoctorWhoS30E7TheUnicornAndTheWasp "The Unicorn and the Wasp"]] that her husband left her for a younger woman, Donna replies "Well, mine left me for a giant spider." It makes sense if you saw the episode, but to Agatha Christie it sounds ludicrous.

* In ''[[Recap/DoctorWhoS30E2TheFiresOfPompeii "The Fires of Pompeii"]], upon finding they're in what looks like ancient Rome (and before they find out they've landed in Pompeii instead), the Doctor tells Donna, "And if you ask me, that fire had absolutely nothing to do with me," referring to the great fire of AD 64 and that First Doctor serial.

* What led him to steal the TARDIS (other than general Wanderlust)? There were "pressing reasons at the time", apparently, but good luck getting him to admit what they were.

* From [[Recap/DoctorWhoS27E11BoomTown "Boom Town"]]: "I told you we should have turned left!" (A phrase which takes on a deeper meaning a couple of series later, quite possibly on purpose, given the trend for significant words and phrases throughout the new series.) We see Jack telling part of a story about a bunch of naked Time Agents and something with tusks.

** Clara doing something, which is never revealed, which results in she and the Doctor being banished from the second most beautiful garden planet in the universe. Which apparently also resulted in the Doctor nearly marrying a sentient plant and Clara doing some piece of action that greatly impressed the Doctor. ("[[Recap/DoctorWhoS35E10FaceTheRaven Face the Raven]]")

** The book, Engines of War, which centered on the [[spoiler: War Doctor]] gave information on the Skaro Degradations. They were Dalek forces with abnormal and malformed appearances created by the Daleks during experiments to retro-evolve the Dalek genome.
