* LogicalWeakness: The Black Guardian laughs her ass off when asking the Doctor if he really thought he could escape her, the embodiment of chaos and entropy, with a ''Randomizer'' of all things. Ten bitterly admits it wasn't one of his finest ideas.


* BerserkButton: [[spoiler: Nine's willingness to sacrifice Rose to destroy Dalek-Tor]] results in One practically ''exploding'' with rage.
-->'''HOW DARE YOU! HOW DARE YOU!'''

''The 10 Doctors'' is a ''Series/DoctorWho'' {{Fan Webcomic|s}} by Rich Morris. The comic is notable for its epic scope and for featuring, in addition to all the eponymous ten Doctors, nearly ''every'' companion, major villain and recurring character to appear in the series up to 2007. The references come thick and fast, so if you don't know the difference between a Renegade Dalek and an Imperial Dalek, be forewarned -- but not discouraged.

** [[spoiler:So the entire reason the Time Lords lost the Time War is that the Valeyard, which the Time Lords ''created in the first place'', killed one Time Lord before he could get the Daleks' attack strategies to the Doctor. If this hadn't happened, the war would have been much less destructive, the Time Lords and Gallifrey would still be around, and the events of ''The End of Time'' would '''never have happened'''. So it's the Time Lords' fault they got into the Time War, which isn't too surprising. Though that was already known, given that various showrunners have openly stated that the Time Lords sending the Doctor back to stop the Daleks from existing in "Genesis of the Daleks," was the first shot in the war.]]

To briefly summarise -- the Tenth Doctor, in a bad mood following [[Recap/DoctorWho2006CSTheRunawayBride "The Runaway Bride"]], has gone to a luxurious world called the [[Recap/DoctorWho20thASTheFiveDoctors Eye of Orion]] to cheer himself up... only to gradually find eight of his previous selves having all arrived at the same time along with their companions. While they begin to investigate what's going on and why they've been brought together, [[Recap/DoctorWhoTVMTheTVMovie the Eighth Doctor]] (the odd one out) is on Gallifrey, investigating mysterious goings-on which seem to involve the recently-disappeared Daleks. And then things get [[GambitPileup complicated...]]

* AllForNothing: The Seventh Doctor is desperate to take away the sample of Lazar's Disease Glitz sold to Davros, so he resorts to pinching it, distracting Davros himself with a firecracker and fleeing the pursuing Daleks. Then Glitz reminds him that, if nothing else, [[PragmaticVillainy there's very little profit to be made in a galaxy run by Daleks]]. The thing Glitz sold Davros was just a vial of gumblejack oil from the galley at Terminus.
