* 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.

double-entendre. The story immediately after, line had apparently been written in seriousness, but caused repeated {{Corpsing}} attacks on set and became a little meme amongst the crew enough that "Terror of the Zygons", has a similar Zygons" repeated the joke - after the Doctor blows up the Zygon ship and ship, he solemnly intones "was that bang big enough for you, Brigadier?" before smirking at his line.



* "The Stones of Blood" has one half of the guest character double act make a suggestive remark to Romana about how much fun she can have with a bicycle seat.

* 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).

* [[Recap/DoctorWho2015CSTheHusbandsOfRiverSong The Husbands of River Song]]: When the Doctor teleports River back to the TARDIS against her will (in a patronising attempt to keep her safe) River says "You -!" before being cut off by the teleportation. If you watch her lips, she is clearly saying "You bastard!"

* 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.



* In "The Hand of Fear", the Doctor is teasing Eldraad with the ring he wants. Notice how he does this by playing with it with his middle finger. When the camera cuts to the reverse angle behind Eldraad, he's clearly subtly flipping Eldraad off.

** She also describes Adric (who's around fourteen to sixteen years old) as a "handsome child" in a tone reminiscent of an older woman out to "make a man" of an innocent young boy.



* During the filming of "[[Recap/DoctorWhoS19E1Castrovalva Castrovalva]]", Matthew Waterhouse, who plays Adric, had a ferocious hangover. Eventually, he ended up running over to a tree and vomiting during the scene where Tegan and the Doctor argue about who landed the TARDIS. The actors kept going so they could use the take. In the serial, if one listens carefully, Watterhouse can just barely be heard [[NauseaFuel tossing his cookies off-screen.]]
