* [[http://scans-daily.dreamwidth.org/3457520.html Issue 11]] of IDW's [[ComicBook/DoctorWhoIDW Doctor Who Ongoing]] has a FreakyFriday plot in which Amy and the Eleventh Doctor get swapped. Rory doesn't care what Amy looks like. At the end, not knowing that they've just switched back, he declares this and says they'll make it work just before passionately kissing the Doctor. Amy says they should do it again, [[YaoiFangirl but slower]].
* One of Eleven's comics-only companions is [[http://tardis.wikia.com/wiki/Kevin_%28robot%29 Kevin]]. The [[CrazyAwesome ROBOT DINOSAUR.]] Need we say more?
* IDW has given us ''ComicBook/StarTrekTheNextGenerationDoctorWhoAssimilation2'', where [[TheNthDoctor The Eleventh Doctor]] interacts with another [[Franchise/StarTrek Sci-Fi LongRunner]].
** HilarityEnsues when The Doctor meets Data.
--->'''Doctor:''' An android! A positively spendid android! What do you have in here, a positronic brain? Those can be tricky to untangle, need lots of artificial synapse jumping. Looks like you've got it running very smoothly.\\
'''Data:''' Curious...\\
'''Riker:''' Um...\\
'''Amy:''' Doctor, you're being rude!\\
'''Doctor:''' Top-notch workmanship, I have to say. Did you build him yourself?\\
'''Data:''' Please let go of my head.
** Worf tires of the Doctor's nonstop GibberingGenius tendencies:
--->'''The Doctor:''' Very nice, very impressive. Roomy. I like roomy. I like the lines. Very nice use of space.\\
'''Worf:''' Will you ''PLEASE'' stop talking!
** Issue #3 has Spock giving a detailed analysis of the jellybaby that the 4th Doctor gives him.
* Titan's [[ComicBook/DoctorWhoTitan Ninth Doctor comic]] ''Weapons of Past Destruction'' has the Doctor [[BriefAccentImitation doing an impression of Jackie Tyler.]] Rose is not amused.
--> '''Rose:''' Oi, leave my mum out of this! And while you're at it, Creator/DickVanDyke wants his accent back.

[[folder: Other Books]]
* In Literature/PastDoctorAdventures novel ''Verdigris'', the Master pulls off a dine-and-dash on the frustrated BigBad of the book and steals his dinner in the process.
* The kid-oriented book ''How to Be a Time Lord'' is presented as the Eleventh Doctor's rewrite of a book on Time Lord history, meant to help his next incarnation get his bearings post-regeneration. In the section "Enemies of the Time Lords", Eleven lists several telltale signs of an enemy, accompanied by his own cartoony illustrations. The last sign has an illustration suspiciously similar-looking to a certain WhamShot in "[[Recap/DoctorWho50thASTheDayOfTheDoctor The Day of the Doctor]]": "[[KubrickStare Beady eyes!]] [[DeathGlare Totally creepy.]] [[BigOlEyebrows And those mean, downward-pointing eyebrows.]] [[Creator/PeterCapaldi They mean trouble.]]" Um, Eleven, you meant well, but...
* ''The Time Lord Letters'' has tons of funny bits:
** Letters 31-33 chronicle [[Recap/DoctorWhoS34E6TheCaretaker the temporary tenure of one John "The Doctor" Smith as caretaker of Coal Hill School]]. His application letter for the post, noting that the regular caretaker has fallen ill, arrives at the school the day ''before'' that caretaker calls in sick, and via notes The Doctor dispenses unwanted advice about everything from the untidiness of Danny Pink's classroom to the poor quality of the chips in the cafeteria ("they need to be much crispier if you want children to enjoy eating them. And may I suggest a selection of dips and dressings?").
** Letter 37, which comes in the wake of the Seventh Doctor's [[Recap/DoctorWhoS24E2ParadiseTowers adventure in Paradise Towers]], is a thank you note from the Acting Interim Chief Caretaker. It's titled "Thank You (in accordance with Rule 1781-B)", and the by-the-book speak just mounts from there.
** Letter 97, "Naughty or Nice?", is the Twelfth Doctor's [[Recap/DoctorWho2014CSLastChristmas thank-you note to Santa Claus for his help in reuniting him and Clara]]. The P.S. reveals that he's sending it by ''sticking it up a chimney'', and it sits around in one "for over a century", according to the book's compilers, before being discovered. Also, while the letter is largely friendly, the Doctor once again notes "But seriously -- [[RunningGag you should give up on the tangerines.]] No one likes them. No one at all. Signature gift or not, it's time to move on, Big Fellah."
** Letter 99, "Not So Sorry", has the Fourth Doctor's draft of an apology for [[Recap/DoctorWhoS12E1Robot skipping out on lunch with the Prime Minister after defeating a giant robot]]...which the Brigadier ''heavily'' {{Quote Mine}}s before sending it out to be typed up. Among the material lost in the process: "Can't you liven things up a bit [at cabinet meetings]? Maybe play musical chairs or something?" Letter 100, "Royal Excuses", has Four apologize for also missing dinner at Buckingham Palace, and it's even worse -- partially because he discusses ''everything'' he did after defeating the robot, up through the beginning of his investigation of [[Recap/DoctorWhoS13E1TerrorOfTheZygons "trouble in the North Sea"]]. The Brigadier doesn't even try to edit it, and forbids it to be sent!
* ''The Dangerous Book of Monsters'' is presented as the Twelfth Doctor's guide to children on how to avoid/deal with -- [[BrutalHonesty if possible]] -- the myriad of villains in the Whoniverse. He's a mighty prickly advice-giver:
** "The actual, real Emperor Dalek Creature is inside this transparent tank. He can see out, so you could wave to him. No, don't ''actually'' wave to him. ''STOP THAT!''"
** On the [[Recap/DoctorWhoS34E1DeepBreath Half-Face Man]]: "He shouldn't give you any trouble, as he fell out of a flying restaurant. [[RiddleForTheAges That's my story, anyway.]]"
** On [[Recap/DoctorWhoS34E11DarkWater Missy]]: "If she doesn't kill you, she'll probably kiss you. Not sure which is worse."
** With regards to the [[Recap/DoctorWhoS29E11Utopia Futurekind]], he captions a picture of one with "[[BigOlEyebrows Good eyebrows though. They got that right.]]"
** On avoiding [[Recap/DoctorWhoS30E16TheWatersOfMars the Flood]]: "Well, I'm not going to say you shouldn't wash, so don't get your hopes up....But if you see anyone who's dripping wet, with cracked skin and a gargly voice -- probably talking about world domination -- then take a break from showers."
** He notes among basic rules in the afterword: "If in doubt, hide. Not under the bed, because [[Recap/DoctorWhoS34E4Listen a monster might have beaten you to it.]] But [[MemeticMutation behind the sofa]] is good."

!!Outside the Universe
* Funny/DoctorWhoConfidential
* Funny/TheFiveishDoctorsReboot

[[folder:The Curse of Fatal Death (charity spoof)]]
* Easily the funniest line came from the Master as he was about to dump the Doctor and his assistant into the vast sewers of Tersurus:
-->'''The Master:''' Prepare for 500 miles of fear and feces!\\
[Later on:]\\
'''The Master:''' [[HoistByHisOwnPetard 624 years... in a sodding sewer!]]
* Jonathan Pryce's [[LargeHam gloriously OTT Master]] is a Crowning Villain of Funny. The EvilLaugh that causes ''thunder and lightning'' to strike while he's ''inside his TARDIS''? The Dalek control "bumps"? His cybernetic upgrade [[spoiler: (his hand's been replaced by a plunger)]]? And '''he is NOT CAMP!'''
** The Master and Emma get a bit snide with each other over the matter of the 'bumps':
-->'''The Master:''' [[RunningGag They're not breasts]], they're Dalek bumps. They can detect ion charged emissions and operate as atheric beam locators at a distance of up to 20,000 light years.\\
''[Emma snorts derisively]''\\
'''The Master:''' They're also extremely firm.\\
'''Emma:''' ''What are you trying to say?!''\\
'''The Master:''' ''[Bitchy]'' Oh. ''Nothing''.
* The female Doctor, inspecting her sonic screwdriver: "Ooh, look--it's got ''three'' settings!"
* After the Doctor explains how he'll tell the Master that the Daleks are planning to screw him over[[note]]The aliens communicate by breaking wind[[/note]]:
--> '''Emma:''' ...Can I be tied to a different chair?\\
'''Dalek:''' [[foldercontrol]]

[[folder: Si-lence. ]]
\\
'''Emma:''' ...Why do you have chairs on a Dalek spaceship anyway?\\
'''Dalek:''' [[/folder]]

[[folder: ...[[Running Gag We will ex-plain la-ter. ]]
]]
** Heck, every time they need to say "I/We will explain later".
[[/folder]]

[[folder: The Weakest Link Special]]
* The very fact that K-9 is a contestant. No, not his voice actor, K-9 himself.
* Then, at the end of the first round, everyone votes for K-9 as the Weakest Link. Even K-9 himself, who said "K-9" when the answer on his podium said "Andrew". This was actually a [[RealLifeWritesThePlot deliberate choice]] to eliminate the tin dog first because K-9 props just have the worst track record of breaking down out of nowhere and they didn't want to chance it in-game.
* Creator/DavidTennant introducing himself.
-->'''David:''' Hello, I'm David Tennant, I'm over 900 years old, and I'm from Gallifrey.
* John Barrowman vocally improvises the ''Doctor Who'' theme tune and hams up the "DOO-WEE-DOO! WEE-OOH-WOO!"
* The game was rigged from the start to carry the main cast members through to the final round. By that logic, David and John would have been the last two contestants as the most popular. That is, until Noel Clarke decided to play competitively. And even so, Camille Coduri won Sudden Death and clinched the whole game, even after struggling to get through some of the game's earlier rounds.

[[folder:Other]]
* When Creator/JennaLouiseColeman was having her first interview after it was announced that she'd be the next Companion, she was asked her favorite monster and she replied, "I'm pretty sure I'll run into the Daleks at some point." A bit of HilariousInHindsight deliberately invoked by Jenna, since she definitely already knew (and had possibly already filmed it) that in her first episode, she'd be playing a human turned into a Dalek, 5 episodes and 3 months before anyone was expecting to see her on the show.
* The entire cast and crew of the Davies/Tennant era performing [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FPKgPB80jNA&list=LLy-kszH1cd4laqcl1KM0GBg The Proclaimers' "500 Miles"]] at the wrap party for "The End of Time". I ''dare'' you not to laugh at the sight of an Ood dancing.
* After the word got out that a warehouse in America accidentally sent out the Series 7b DVD a ''little'' too early (as in, '''[[EpicFail before the finale aired]]'''), the BBC and other assorted Powers That Be all politely asked that the fans who received them not spoil anything for the rest. Whovians responded in their own unique way, namely by spamming the post with so much [[http://doctorwho.tumblr.com/post/50322164980/amy-rory-melody-and-this-is-why-i-love insane nonsense]] that even if the truth were revealed ([[SugarWiki/CrowningMomentOfAwesome which it wasn't, by the way]]) they wouldn't believe it anyway.
** It was only the Blu-Ray that was leaked, and Steven Moffat's comment about that is pretty hilarious as well:
---> '''Moffat:''' We don't leak just any old junk. 1080p or nothing, that's us! It's like getting caught extra naked.

* When Creator/PeterCapaldi got cast as Matt Smith's replacement, many Whovians (notably those on Tumblr) jokingly theorized that the Twelfth Doctor would be [[SirSwearsALot much like]] [[Series/TheThickOfIt another role of Capaldi's]].
** See [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qIzEgax3nOQ this video]] and [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5Blf073f2Lc this video]]. Oh yes, and [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iu6jO_cxiqQ this.]]
*** It was even joked about ''during the actual announcement'' shortly after Capaldi came on stage.
* Also, after his casting, he was [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XM2bXjs0n2g interviewed]] by Graham Norton on his show. And was ''[[OldShame mortified]]'' when Norton started reading letters written about him by officials of the Doctor Who Fan Club and the BBC in TheSeventies.
* Creator/KarenGillan's tweet following the casting of the Twelfth Doctor:
-->'''[[https://twitter.com/KarenGillan2/status/364101139249106945 KarenGillan2]]:''' CAPALDI! Superb choice. Swear I've seen him in [[Recap/DoctorWhoS30E2TheFiresOfPompeii Pompeii]]...
* For the 50th anniversary of the show, the official Twitter put an image with the phrase "On this day [September 19] 50 years ago, filming began on a new BBC TV Series called ''Doctor Who''". The fans' response? "{{It will never catch on}}."
* The entirety of the [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fQfvLpfXe2U Doctor Who Cast vs Nerdist Bowling Match]]. Some highlights include:
** Karen Gillan being so [[AccidentalAimingSkills accidentally good at bowling]] at one point she's doing even better than [[TheAce Chris Hardwick. Who is the son of a professional bowler. And usually gets several strikes a game.]]
--->'''Chris Hardwick:''' From a scientific standpoint, everything she's doing should not work. And yet it is.\\
--\\
'''Matt Smith:''' Karen's got the highest score!\\
'''Chris Hardwick:''' SHE DOES HAVE THE HIGHEST SCORE. *hangs head in shame*
*** Matt and Arthur poke fun at this, affectionately agreeing to call Karen "an idiot", to which Karen gets adorably defensive.
** Chris Hardwick's TARDIS ball.
---> '''Chris Hardwick:''' It came through a tear in the fabric of the universe. Or I just paid a hundred bucks and had this printed onto a ball. With a laser, so that's kinda sciencey.
** Matt Smith being absolutely terrible, to the point where he has a counter for the number of pins he's hit (his final total seemed to be roughly '''16''', which a competent bowler can make in ''two turns''.)
--->'''Steven Moffat:''' What you need to do is try to hit ''some of'' the pins.\\
--\\
'''Matt Smith:''' I've got one pin! I'm the worst in the game!\\
'''Karen Gillan:''' Hahahaha, one pin!\\
'''Matt Smith:''' Shut up, Karen.
*** Steven Moffat wasn't much better; in several frames the ball would arc through the air and only land about halfway down the lane. One of the other guys said he throws the ball like a caveman and should probably switch to softball. Notice that Moffat's competitiveness still came through, lasering in on the fact that he was at least better than ''somebody'', namely Matt, who he teased mercilessly about it.
** Creator/ArthurDarvill is so "fluid" when swinging his bowling ball (using just about his whole body to throw it) that Karen jokes that he "has no bones".
--->'''Karen Gillan:''' Come on, Arthur! Show them what you're made of!\\
'''Arthur Darvill:''' I'm not really made of very much.
** On Hardwick's team was Creator/WilWheaton, who, after a rather poor frame, gets Steven Moffat to unleash his inner snark.
--->'''Moffat''': [[Series/StarTrekTheNextGeneration And they said he was a]] [[ChildProdigy boy genius]]. What happened? If Beverly Crusher could see this...
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rEmm6UP5G88 David Tennant introduces "The Day of the Doctor".]]
* What the [[https://twitter.com/HRP_palaces/status/404346796220379136 Official Twitter of Historical Royal Palaces]] says about the Black Archive shown in the 50th Anniversary special:
-->We have no knowledge of the black archive at the Tower of London. Then again, we might have had our memories wiped
* During the 50th anniversary of the series, multiple live celebrations were going on. Ironically, ''Doctor Who Afterparty'', the one with the main cast members of the special, executive producer of the special Steven Moffat, and many prominent classic series stars, went completely OffTheRails. They decided to do an interview with Music/OneDirection over their live feed, who had declared the same day as the anniversary "1DDAY" and were performing a 24-hour livestream. Someone got the crazy idea this was to rival the series, when OD was a band having next to nothing to do with the series, and it was merely an accidental coincidence. This livestream linkup could have worked in both the band's and DW's popularity favor... except that there was a delay between transmissions on either side. It promptly turned into a [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AZYkuSto80k massive farce]] that will go down in ''Doctor Who'' infamy even more than ''Dimensions in Time''.
-->'''Steven Moffat''': In the name of ''God'', we can't do this!!
** Matt Smith also appeared to ''[[AccidentalUnfortunateGesture flick the V]]'' at One Direction. In America, the gesture can be seen as inoffensive, but in Britain... it means "piss off".
** Amusingly, the afterparty's list of companions includes Caitlin Blackwood (Young Amy) who stretches the definition of "companion" to breaking point and Andrew Hayden Smith (Jake Simmonds from Rise of the Cybermen / The Age of Steel and Army of Ghosts / Doomsday) who completely and utterly shatters it.
* [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tKStG48nruQ This]] ''Tonight's the Night'' skit introduced by John Barrowman.
-->'''David Tennant''': ''My'' TARDIS.
* During his photo shoot as Orson Pink, Samuel Anderson started randomly quoting [[WesternAnimation/ToyStory Buzz Lightyear]].
* Creator/RussellTDavies, Creator/StevenMoffat and Creator/DavidTennant all sat down to do the [[http://www.david-tennant.com/sitebuildercontent/sitebuilderfiles/forest.mp3 commentary]] for the episode [[Recap/DoctorWhoS30E9ForestOfTheDead Forest of the Dead]]. As you can guess, the three men tease each other and [[PromotedFanboy geek over Doctor Who lore]] more than they actually talk about the episode. It was also taped right when Moffat was announced as the next showrunner following RTD, so naturally there's some good natured ribbing on the situation.
-->'''David Tennant''': [[Recap/DoctorWho20thASTheFiveDoctors Who's Borusa and who's Flavia]]?
* Missy [[http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/p02lbdzw reading a book]] titled "World Domination" with a picture of Roger Degaldo's Master on the back.
* [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tJSQFzw1pEE Dalek relaxation tape.]] Yes. That exists.
* Before the BBC decided to revive Doctor Who and before Creator/ChristopherEccleston was announced as the official Ninth Doctor, the official Ninth Doctor was the "Shalka Doctor" from the webisode "Scream of the Shalka". This incarnation of the Ninth Doctor was played by Creator/RichardEGrant, and the preceding incarnation, the Eighth Doctor, was played by Creator/PaulMcGann. In other words, [[Film/WithnailAndI "& I" regenerated into "Withnail"]] in this continuity.
** What makes it even funnier is that Richard Griffiths, who plays Withnail's Uncle Monty in ''Film/WithnailAndI'', was considered for the part of the Eighth Doctor once Creator/SylvesterMcCoy left the role in the unmade Season 27 had the series not been canceled.
* The working title for "The Eleventh Hour" was "The Doctor Returns". Until some smartarse pointed out that the Doctor never actually "left".
* Matt Lucas, in an end-of-season-10 "Behind The Scenes" interview clip, proclaims that he'll sorely miss everyone he's worked with on ''Doctor Who'' ... except the "Behind The Scenes" crew, who really got on his nerves.
* Creator/AlexKingston missed the official announcement of Creator/JodieWhittaker as the Thirteenth Doctor, and found out from the crowd at a panel. She promptly got an expression of "I wonder how good a snogger she is?"
-->'''Alex:''' God, I'm always the cradlesnatcher!
* Matt Lucas' response regarding the casting of the Thirteenth Doctor: [[spoiler: "Can't believe they cast a human to play the Doctor."]]
* An [[https://www.mirf.ru/serial/doktor-kto-zhenschina-chto-eto-menyaet article]] from a Russian Sci-fi/Fantasy journal on Jodie's casting:
--> People are joking that the new Doctor will pack TARDIS full with dresses or [[WomenDrivers won't be able to park her]]. As if the previous men-Doctors had their socks strewn all over the consoles!
* Matt Smith literally called as many higher-ups at the BBC that he could and begged them to tell him who the Thirteenth Doctor was. When he found out it was Jodie Whittaker, he was so excited that he [[https://twitter.com/impossiblynikki/status/897182157294186496 left a voicemail]] on her phone of him singing the theme song.
