* OurMonstersAreWeird: The Wirrn has a truly bizarre multigenerational life-cycle that functions as The Virus and parasitism simultaneously. Wirrn larva are created through fertilising the skin of another species (non-sapient animals are used for this purpose on the Wirrn homeworld, but humans and presumably Time Lords work just as well) and converting their body and brain into that of a larva. The larva then pupates and develops into a fully-fledged Wirrn, a huge wasp-like creature, which gains all the knowledge its host knew. It then lays eggs containing larvae that hatch under its direct control, and any hosts they fertilise transfer the knowledge back to the swarm leader as well.

* HumanPopsicle: Humanity froze itself to wait out an environmental catastrophe. Ironically, the Doctor himself makes the cryogenic/cryonic mistake, while belittling poor Harry's intelligence.

* TheReasonYouSuckSpeech: The Doctor gives one to Sarah Jane calculated to hit all of her {{Berserk Button}}s, in order to turn her [[ScreamingWoman screaming]] into screams of UnstoppableRage. (This was the Fourth Doctor's second story and so it serves as something of an EstablishingCharacterMoment for him - it is impossible to imagine the Third Doctor being this manipulative.)
--->'''Doctor''': Oh, stop whining, girl. You're useless.
--->'''Sarah''': Oh, Doctor..!
--->'''Doctor''': "Oh, Doctor", is that all you can say for yourself? Stupid, foolish girl. We should never have relied on you. I knew you'd let us down. That's the trouble with girls like you. You think you're tough, but when you're really up against it, you've no guts at all. Hundreds of lives at stake and you lie there, blubbing.
