It appears the Doctor himself has got too full of memes, he deserves a page of his own.

[[folder: General ]]

* The theme song.
** DOOOO WEEEEE OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO! [[labelnote:Explanation]]The first three notes of the theme song.[[/labelnote]]
** Given a shout out in the bridge to Music/PinkFloyd's "[[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aRPCrWPAtEQ One of These Days]]". Made even more obvious in the [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UI4-r8Vx8qM live version]] on ''Pulse''.
* Vworp Vworp [[labelnote:Explanation]]The sound the TARDIS makes when it lands or takes over, according to a sound effect in a ''DoctorWhoMagazine'' comic when it first started back in 1979. This has stuck as the "official" transcription of the sound.[[/labelnote]]
** Also known as a wheezing, groaning noise. [[labelnote:Explanation]]The phrase TerranceDicks would invariably use to describe the same sound effect, from the mid-1970's onwards.[[/labelnote]]
* Knock, knock.
** Who's there?
*** Doctor.
**** Doctor who?
***** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3uTPrsXVmnc Correct.]]
* "EX-TER-MIN-ATE!" [[labelnote:Explanation]]What Daleks scream before they kill people. Arguably the single most well-known meme of the series. The Daleks first appeared in 1963. They gained the catchphrase in 1965.[[/labelnote]]
** Likewise, there's also, "DELETE!" [[labelnote:Explanation]]What New Series Cybermen say before they kill people.[[/labelnote]]
* These memes are stored behind the sofa. [[labelnote:Explanation]]It was (and is) a meme for decades that ''Doctor Who'' was so terrifying children could only watch it while hiding behind the sofa.[[/labelnote]]
* Yes, but does he have ''gravitas''? [[labelnote:Explanation]]A frequent fan demand is that the Doctor and/or the series have gravitas.[[/labelnote]]
* X is a Time Lord and Y is his TARDIS. [[labelnote:Explanation]]It's become an unavoidable meme around ThisVeryWiki's WildMassGuessing sections to make the guess that a certain character with potentially qualifying traits is a Time Lord. Some guesses become as specific as this guy is the Doctor and/or that guy is the Master.[[/labelnote]]
* Oh, I see you’ve redecorated – I don’t like it❗ [[labelnote:Explanation]] Variant of similar lines said by the Second, Tenth and Eleventh Doctors referring to the redressing of locations they've previously visited (and in the case of the Tenth Doctor, his future self having changed of the desktop theme inside his TARDIS) and different points in different episodes.[[/labelnote]]

* "Would you like a [[TrademarkFavoriteFood jelly baby]]?" [[labelnote:Explanation]]The Fourth Doctor always carried a bag of jelly babies with him and had a tendency to offer them to everyone, even if they were trying to kill him.

* No, ''not'' the mind ''probe!'' [[labelnote:Explanation]]The most famous instance of {{Narm}} in the entire series. The actor simply ''could not'' say the line without the bizarre inflection. WordOfGod has it that TerranceDicks included the line to reference a more obscure use of the same line in the earlier ''Frontier in Space'', in order to make fun of it. In so doing, he surpassed the original.)[[/labelnote]]
* "My dreeeeeeams of CONQUEST!" [[labelnote:Explanation]]Soldeed from "The Horns of Nimon" is probably the most hammy villains in the series' history. ''Ever.''[[/labelnote]]

* Fan''tas''tic! [[labelnote:Explanation]]The Ninth Doctor's CatchPhrase.[[/labelnote]]
* "Are you my mummy?" [[labelnote:Explanation]]The repeated line the MonsterOfTheWeek in "The Empty Child"/"The Doctor Dances" says. Began as pure terror, ended as a CrowningMomentOfHeartwarming. Referenced (by the Doctor!) in "The Sontaran Stratagem."[[/labelnote]]
* "Harriet Jones, Prime Minister". "Yes, we know who you are." [[labelnote:Explanation]]The reaction whenever Harriet Jones introduces herself as "Harriet Jones, Prime Minister". Began as a joke, ended as a TearJerker.[[/labelnote]]

** After "The Name of the Doctor" it became: [[spoiler: We all skipped Nine!]] [[labelnote:Explanation, major spoilers]]The "War Doctor", played by Creator/JohnHurt, isn't "counted" as a Doctor, and had his existence revealed in 2013, several years after the Creator/ChristopherEccleston era, as a "secret" incarnation between the Eighth and Ninth Doctors who fought in the Time War.

* Lots of planets have a Scotland. [[labelnote:Explanation]]Reaction to the 12th Doctor speaking in Capaldi's natural Scottish accent. Inspired by the 9th Doctor's response to why he sounds like he's from the North.[[/labelnote]]
