** The UNIT era contains rather a lot between the coworkers - Yates' [[HoYay crush on the Brigadier]] is hinted at in the DancePartyEnding of "The Daemons" and Benton's interest in Jo is implied when he shirks off his post to come and talk to her in "Day of the Daleks". Neither ends up going anywhere.

Neither ends up going Yates and Jo are implicitly dating in the backstory to "The Curse of Peladon", justifying Jo's bizarre choice of outfit for the story (her date outfit), and Yates appears moody and jealous at Jo's wedding party in "The Green Death". None of it goes anywhere.

*** In "The Ark in Space", Sarah Jane has been forcibly put into a coma state by an automated system on a SleeperShip, at a time when the Fourth Doctor was still gently figuring out his personality after his regeneration. When Harry insists Sarah is 'of value', the Doctor agrees in language that Vira can more easily understand. Vira tells the Doctor 'your comrade is a romantic'. The Doctor makes a wistful, puzzled face and says, "perhaps we both are".



*** In "The Ark in Space", Sarah Jane has been forcibly put into a coma state by an automated system on a SleeperShip (keep in mind that this is their second televised story together and the Doctor was still finding out what his personality was):
-->'''VIRA:''' ''(to Harry)'' Is she of value?
-->'''HARRY:''' Of value? She's a human being like ourselves! What sort of question's that?
-->'''DOCTOR:''' The answer is yes.
-->'''VIRA:''' ''(to the Doctor)'' Your comrade is a romantic.
-->'''DOCTOR:''' ''(with a wistful expression)'' Perhaps we both are.

** Creator/RobertHolmes was the most fond of implying Doctor/Companion romance in the Classic series. Some of his contributions are:
*** The Third Doctor seducing Liz in "Spearhead from Space";
*** An exchange in "The Ark in Space" where the recently regenerated Fourth Doctor isn't sure if his concern towards Sarah makes him 'a romantic';
*** Sutekh reading the Doctor's mind and discovering the apparently shocking extent of his feelings towards Sarah in "Pyramids of Mars";
*** The Doctor being speechless - followed by very flirty - when [[SheCleansUpNicely Leela wears Victorian dress]] in "Talons of Weng-Chiang".

* ''QueerAsFolk'' is one big Stuart/Vince tease. They are obviously in love with each other, but what with Stuart's [[AllGaysArePromiscuous constant one-night-stands]] and Vince's reluctance to initiate anything, they remain in UST territory. They wind up together at the end of the series, but it is left ambiguous as to whether they are a romantic couple or not.

* ''Series/TheSarahConnorChronicles'' has ''more'' than a few indications of this between John and [[RobotGirl Cameron]], not the least of which is a scene at the end of "Vick's Chip" where John, leaning over Cameron while she is still deactivated, stops to affectionately stroke her hair.

** First Doctor companions Ian Chesterton and Barbara Wright are obviously very close but nothing ever explicitly comes from it, at least in the show itself (most ExpandedUniverse stuff suggests that they eventually got married). Particularly painful teasing includes the scene in "The Romans" where Barbara checks out his GorgeousPeriodDress, talks about how splendid he looks, and then we get a scene of her [[GRatedSex doing his hair]]. There's also [[http://i.imgur.com/Yb4SFyn.gif this]] from "The Keys of Marinus".

*** The Revival Era episode "School Reunion" establishes that Sarah Jane was in love with the Doctor and it's strongly implied the feeling was mutual, in a scene where the Doctor openly discusses the heartbreak of MayflyDecemberRomance with Rose.



** Clara Oswald and the Eleventh Doctor have bucket loads of ShipTease. From accidental hugging to hand holding to the Doctor calling Clara "perfect" to a Cyber-converted Doctor confessing his love to her to [[ItMakesSenseInContext the Doctor telling her to take her clothes off after a]] SuggestiveCollision. Utterly sunk when the Eleventh Doctor regenerated into a very alien, spidery old man who constantly insults her appearance (not that Eleven never did, usually in very obvious denial), but that didn't stop Twelve managing to add his own piece of ShipTease to the sunken Clara[=/=]Eleven ship when Twelve remarked to Clara that "he wasn't her boyfriend", but not in the sense that Clara thought that way, it was ''Eleven'' who made that mistake.

From accidental hugging to hand holding to the Doctor calling Clara "perfect" to a Cyber-converted Doctor confessing his love to her to [[ItMakesSenseInContext the Doctor telling her to take her clothes off after a]] SuggestiveCollision. Utterly sunk (at least, so it appeared at first ...) when the Eleventh Doctor regenerated into a very alien, spidery old man who constantly insults her appearance (not that Eleven never did, usually in very obvious denial), but that didn't stop Twelve managing to add his own piece of ShipTease to the sunken Clara[=/=]Eleven ship when Twelve remarked to Clara that "he wasn't her boyfriend", but not in the sense that Clara thought that way, it was ''Eleven'' who made that mistake.



** Although Twelve would be caught dead before you'd get a compliment or traditional flirt out of him, due to both lacking interpersonal skills and an aversion toward empty pleasantries of any sort, there have always been subtle indications that he might [[AnchoredShip still harbor some of these feelings]], having merely chosen not act on them out of the cynicism born from seeing many generations of humans live and die during his stay on Trenzalore, or a mistaken impression that she didn't want him anymore. He's always trying to show off to Clara, tends extremely competitive when anyone else does, sends many [[LongingLook forlorn glances]] [[LongingLook her way]] whenever he's in a distraught mood for any reason, is ''very'' blatantly flattered when he mistakenly assumed that Clara is dating an Eleven-lookalike, frequent states that that he needs her, at one point outright referred to one of their trips as a "date" once she was out of earshot, and then there's the incredibly UST-filled "Mummy on the orient Express"... Doesn't help that the narrative draws parallels between their relationship, the romance between Robin Hood and Marian, the interspecies-marriage between Vashtra and Jenny, and Elizabeth and Darcy of "Pride and Prejudice", or that the showrunner described a spectacular act of UndyingLoyalty on his part as "He says 'I love you perfectly'" in a recent interview. While not necessarily indicative of anything romantic in and of themselves, their intense devotion to each other despite their frequent clashes, his habit of calling her "boss" or repeating her name many times over, and his teary-eyed reactions to both their temporary partings have certainly done nothing to deterr the shippers.

*** The above applies to Series 8 (2014) only. Come Series 9, the series removed the AnchoredShip and established that the Doctor and Clara were indeed engaged in a form of romance - as confirmed by the WordOfGod triumverate of the showrunner, the lead actors (including Creator/PeterCapaldi, who had previously been adamant that nothing should exist between Clara and the Doctor suddenly doing a 180 and telling interviewers like Creator/WilWheaton that the Doctor and Clara were "crazy about each other") and directors. The show's established use of TheILoveYouStigma required the writers to use euphemisms such as "I had a duty of care" to express the same meaning. The trilogy of episodes that ended the season chronicled the Doctor's 4.5-''billion''-year efforts to get Clara back after she is KilledOffForReal, leading to a uniquely SF AnchoredShip scenario.

* ''Series/{{Charmed}}'' had lots of FoeYay between Prue and Cole and the episode "The Good, The Bad & The Cursed" gave them a bit of a tease (it probably helped that the actors dated on set). Cole also got teased with Paige as he kissed her while Phoebe was in her body and the episode "Sympathy For The Demon" teased them even further. According to WordOfGod, a Cole/Paige relationship was in the plans but RoseMcGowan objected to it.
