The content of this page was created directly by users and has not been screened or verified by IMDb staff.
Since the beliefs that parents want to instill in their children can vary greatly, we ask that, instead of adding your personal opinions about what is right or wrong in a film, you use this feature to help parents make informed viewing decisions by describing the facts of relevant scenes in the title for each one of the different categories: Sex and Nudity, Violence and Gore, Profanity, Alcohol/Drugs/Smoking, and Frightening/Intense Scenes.

Sex & Nudity

Very occasional super light references at most (less than once per season - if at all.) What there is wouldn't even rate PG.

Violence & Gore

Rarely any fighting (very brief and mild if ever). Some deaths occur (rarely in earlier seasons but becomming a little more common nowadays) - but no gore. (Zapped by dalek ray - the victim just flashes a couple of times and disappears.)


Very mild - even than very rare. (Nothing recognized as 'rated' obscenities.)

very occasionally may see smoking or 'taking a tot' in the much much older episodes Also in some episodes alcohol is consumed, f.e: Kill the moon (S08E07).

Season 8+ episodes are rated higher, realising the audience is mostly long time followers (i.e. getting older) more adult approach has been taken. (As mentioned above including a few more deaths, but no where near the gore of US TV... deaths are instant & bloodless, sex is still barely, if at all there, zero nudity).

As always the doctor always prevails, meaning still that no one will loose any sleep except perhaps kids scared by irresponsible adults telling them "Dr. Who baddies are under the bed."


ignore unofficial opinions & scores out of 10 some others choose to add ...which BTW are contrary to the instructions above anyway.
