* Barbara was almost raped ''again'' in [[Recap/DoctorWhoS2E4TheRomans "The Romans"]], this time by Emperor Nero.
* Edith is strongly implied to be gang-raped off-screen by the three Norwegian scouts in [[Recap/DoctorWhoS2E9TheTimeMeddler "The Time Meddler"]], as [[WordOfGod confirmed by Verity Lambert]] on the DVD commentary. She also explains why the Hartnell era had a higher concentration of sex references; though social taboos were stricter due to the recent introduction of TV, there was less in the way of strict rules on content. In general, there was a tacit understanding of what was appropriate for broadcast, but whether a specific sequence breached it or not was mostly a matter for the personal opinion of the producer.

* "The Celestial Toymaker" includes The King of Hearts reciting a very offensive version of Eeny Meeny Miny Moe. That slipped past the censors in the UK but American networks wouldn't play it.

* In "The Curse of Peladon", the Doctor tames the beast, Aggedor. Right at the end of the story, we get a brief scene where Aggedor starts attempting to hump the Doctor's leg.

** Has the Master on Earth making a teleporter that pushes matter through time and space called "Transmission of Matter Through Insterstitial Time". They even use the abbreviation TOMTIT[[note]]This is a kind of cute little Australian bird.[[/note]]. One investor gets mad at the expense and that the machine doesn't seem to work properly. "Even the name is arrogant! TOM'''TIT'''", with an emphasis on the last three letters. And STILL nobody in the censor board noticed. (It's also Cockney rhyming slang for, well, exactly what you think.)

* In "Planet of the Spiders," the Doctor uses what is basically a mind-reading device to learn that the Brigadier received a wristwatch in a hotel room from a young lady called Doris, to mark her gratitude. The Brigadier interrupts the Doctor before he can say anything else.
** The fact that Doris [[Recap/DoctorWhoS26E1Battlefield later appears as the Brigadier's wife]] basically confirms the implications.

* Generally, throughout the era, Tom Baker liked to handle any control panel he could get his hands on as sexually as he could get away with - note his TARDIS console handling, and his enthusiastic masturbation of the Zygon ship console in "Terror of the Zygons". The revival series has referenced and incorporated all of this bashing about - see Sarah Jane commenting about how the Doctor always used to 'stroke' the TARDIS in "School Reunion" (and the canonisation of Doctor/TARDIS CargoShip in "The Doctor's Wife"), and the Twelfth Doctor explaining that Zygon consoles work by 'titillating' them in a little skit in "The Zygon Invasion".

* Later in "The Robots of Death", the Doctor and Leela are chained to a wall by cuffs around their neck and waist. Leela remarks sarcastically that it was good of them to leave their arms free, and the Doctor agrees, because he has a scratch. But watch him 'scratching' - what he actually does is slowly massage his right nipple, while closing his eyes and opening his mouth in bliss. And he continues to do this for half the scene until Leela stops him.

* In "The Robots of Death", Uvanov gets to look straight at the camera and say "damn!" in a scene that's specifically lingered on. It's so out of place that it might even have been a CensorDecoy to distract from all the graphic descriptions of strangling that happen elsewhere in the scene.

* In order to solve the murder of the Wirrn Queen in "The Ark in Space", the Doctor connects his brain up to an electronic circuit that causes him to experience intense pain. The Doctor seems incredibly keen about this, and his screams of agony seem suspiciously ecstatic, with lots of lip-biting, sweating and moaning.
* In "Revenge of the Cybermen", the Doctor and Sarah are stuck on a rocket that's about to crash. "We're heading for the biggest bang in history," the Doctor says, before turning to look pointedly at her with a mock expression of shock as if noticing his own double-entendre.
* The story immediately after, "Terror of the Zygons", has a similar joke after the Doctor blows up the Zygon ship and solemnly intones "was that bang big enough for you, Brigadier?" before smirking at his line.

* In [[Recap/DoctorWhoS1E1AnUnearthlyChild "An Unearthly Child"]], Ian suspects Susan might be sneaking into the Junkyard to "see a boy" (innocent enough out of context, but bear in mind she's sneaking into an abandoned Junkyard in the middle of the night, suggesting that Ian thinks she's got more than holding hands in mind).



* In [[Recap/DoctorWhoS2E8TheChase "The Chase"]], Ian is implied to habitually engage in some rather conservative crossdressing:
-->'''Ian:''' Oh, er, Barbara, could, I, er, have your cardigan?
-->'''Barbara:''' Oh, not again.
-->'''Ian:''' It's for the Dalek, not for me.



* The (intentional) HoYay between the Second Doctor and Jamie is [[{{Queerbaiting}} fairly tame]] by today's standards, but pretty extreme considering homosexuality was illegal at the time (although decriminalised). Some is actually fairly clear by today's standards - like the Second Doctor fondling Jamie's sporran, or looking up his kilt when he's standing on the Doctor's shoulders (preserved only in telesnap form, sadly).



* In "Carnival of Monsters", Vorg assumes from the Doctor's looks that he speaks Polari. Polari is a language used by carnival folk to communicate with each other, but was better known as a language used by members of the gay community to communicate while avoiding prosecution.
* "The Green Death" is laden with HoYay, from BOSS treating Stevens as a HenpeckedHusband, to Yates working his way into Global Chemicals by seducing the tea boy (!!!) to Global Chemicals imprisoning turncoat employees by chaining them to the ceiling by their wrists.

* In "[[Recap/DoctorWhoS21E1WarriorsOfTheDeep Warriors of the Deep]]", the Doctor puts on an unconscious guard's suit, then sniffs, and says, "[[{{Gasshole}} What have you been eating?]]"



* Ace was intended to be either gay or bisexual. She has a {{Girl of the Week}} in over half her TV stories with whom she always gets ''very'' chummy. Of course, nowadays it looks very tame but in the late 1980s, queer content (especially on a family show like Doctor Who) was considered taboo. Rona Munro, the writer of "Survival", later complained that the BBC had played down the lesbian subtext in her script.



* The 1920s porn that Colonel Curbishley secretly looks at in "[[Recap/DoctorWhoS30E7TheUnicornAndTheWasp The Unicorn and the Wasp]]." That got more questions from the kids than the gay relationship in the episode.

* The made-for-DVD minisode [[Recap/DoctorWhoS33ShortClaraAndTheTardis "Clara and the TARDIS"]] has Clara conducting a surprisingly frank conversation with the TARDIS about whether she's the first girl the Doctor has had, ahem, stay the night. The TARDIS's subsequent slideshow of past female companions (with Clara taking particular notice of Amy's legs) leaves it unclear--from Clara's point of view--as to whether or not these were actually past ''romances'' of the Doctor. To her credit, she seems to take this lengthy "girlfriends list" in stride. One wonders about her reaction had the TARDIS chosen to also display images of Adric, Harry Sullivan, or Captain Jack. A virtually identical gag is used in an Amy minisode where she makes the TARDIS display images of the former companions, taunts the Doctor about it, and gets a HeadTiltinglyKinky reaction to a woman in a "leather bikini" (a reference to Fourth Doctor NubileSavage companion Leela).
