Funny: Doctor Who Magazine
  • Beep the Meep is a walking, talking CMOF waiting to happen. Imagine a creature that looks about as cuddly and furry as a Furby... with a Hitleresque desire to conquer the galaxy with his Black Star radiation. Now imagine it trying to do so by repeatedly playing The Woobie. And then picture it as it goes Ax-Crazy with his guns.
    • And there was the time the Doctor trapped him inside a Lassie movie.
    • And the audio story where he tried to market a TV show starring himself for the purposes of brainwashing his viewers into his own private army. The Doctor thwarted his plans, but most of the action was transmitted live on national TV. Cue the cancellation of Beep's show, and a deluge of people asking for a sci-fi show with this mysterious Doctor...
      • The theme song for Beep's show simply must be mentioned. Picture "It's a Small World After All" with lyrics by Jeffrey Dahmer:
        Let the streets run red spread our message of pain,
        When they beg for their lives use the pliers again,
        No need to ask why, do it for the Most High, you are Beep's friend CONQUER ALLLL!
  • Once upon a time, there was this issue where Izzy and the Eighth Doctor, in pursuit of Beep, entered our universe. Yup. In Britain. Yup. In London. Yup. Near BBC Television Centre. Yup. Izzy gets to meet Tom freaking Baker. Yup. Tom Baker gets to scare Beep into submission. By talking. Yup. The Doctor gets to read Doctor Who Magazine. And we get to see his expression. (This was written to mark the 20th anniversary of the magazine, which launched in 1979 — so that's the temporal setting.)
  • Happy Deathday, which marked the franchise's 35th anniversary, had the then-eight incarnations of the Doctor fighting to defeat a lesser-known Guardian of Space and Time - The Beige Guardian. From the Wildean Wit Enforcer (a parody of the Raston Warrior Robot which beats people into submission when it hears bad puns), to the Fourth and Seventh Doctors talking about their allergies (which change with each regeneration) while casually ignoring the horde of monsters approaching, to the Third Doctor pummelling a couple of drunken Sontarans, to the Fifth recognizing a shapeshifter by their sweat, to the First and Eighth launching a stick of dynamite to the Guardian while he's lamenting how he used to be bullied by the other Guardians for being a loser... CMOF from beginning to end.
  • Planet Bollywood has the Doctor and Amy land on a planet where everyone participates in Bollywood-style musical numbers... including them. Hilarity Ensues as the Doctor must fix a malfunctioning Shiva-like cyborg called "the Muse" in order to defeat a fleet of singing Ganesh-like aliens. Even more hilarity ensues as both the Doctor and Amy have multiple CMoF musical numbers. One particularly hilarious number comes from Amy, where she complains about the Doctor's overuse of Technobabble through song!
  • In "Fire and Brimstone", Ascended Fangirl Extraordinaire Izzy Sinclair has a momentary Squee over her first ever encounter with 'space people' — and promptly turns to them, does the Vulcan salute and announces "Klaatu barada nikto. We come in peace." Behind her, the Doctor face palms.
  • In Ophidius, when the Eighth Doctor is captured and about to be executed (again), he protests that in his culture there is no greater disgrace than to be killed like that...
    The Doctor: I DEMAND TO DIE NAKED!
  • "Hunters Of The Burning Stone"
    • After rescuing Ian and Barbara, Ian is less than convinced the young man standing before him could be The Doctor. For his part, The Doctor isn't in an altogether good mood for not being recognized.
    Doctor: Oh, thank you, Ian blinking Chesterton, still stubborn as a mule, still denying the truth even when it's dancing the rumba on the top of his thick skull!
    Ian: The real Doctor's insults were far more articulate than that!
    Doctor: Give me a minute, I'll find my Thesaurus!
    • Later, when The Doctor tells Ian about how it was his positive influence that convinced him to take on more human companions during his adventures.
    Doctor: After you left, I began taking other human companions with me.
    • As The Doctor and Ian confront the Prometheans, The Doctor starts going into a "World of Cardboard" Speech...only for Horatio to interrupt him mid-sentence by swooping in for a poorly timed Big Damn Heroes moment.
    Doctor: (as a pair of grapplers catch him and pull him to safety) WAIT I WASN'T FINISHHHED!!!
