10 adult jokes in Doctor Who you might have missed

Carry on Up the Tardis

10. Little Miss Tickle


It’s tricky for family shows like Doctor Who to show anything too risqué, but it came pretty close in series nine opener The Magician’s Apprentice thanks to the fun and games of Michelle Gomez’ Missy.


“You know what this is’ she asked the Daleks, “this thing you’re about to destroy? I’ll tell you! It’s the dog’s unmentionables.


She added: “And you know all about those, don’t you?” before tickling one of the “balls” on the Dalek armour. No wonder the series moved to 8pm.
