Sex & Nudity

Violence & Gore

  • Doctor Who has always been controversially violent for the age range it is targeted at, with several violent deaths occuring due to guns, blades, strangling and battering with heavy objects. Blood is rarely shown however. The most gory scene is in part two of ''The War Games" part 2 in which a soilder is seen being shot, but that episode in black and white. And in a 13th season serial 'The Brain of Morbius' Professor Solon shoots his servan Condo in the stomach. We can se his blood squirting and his wound by the shot. The 4th Doctor snaps a man's neck in the same season in 'The Seeds of Doom'. In one episode, a woman's neck is snapped, but she can only be heard screaming. This is cut from most versions of the episode.

Profanity

  • Very mild, earlier episodes feature none at all but later episodes contain mild language, for example, "What the hell?".
  • In the episode ''the celestial toymaker'', which was first broadcast in the early sixties, some lracist language is used to black people
  • The F-word is heard in one of the earliest episodes.

Alcohol, Drugs & Smoking

  • The Doctor rarely drinks alcholic beverages. In the first serial, 'An Unearthly Child' the Doctor is smoking pipe once.
  • Alcohol is rarely consumed by the main cast. Drugs are always fictional and "alien", and usually produce similar effects to tranquilisers.

Frightening & Intense Scenes

  • There are frequent violent deaths in the programme but usually no blood and gore is shown. Several sequences are considered frightening and intense, particularly in later episodes.
