  • First: "Ah, yes! Thank you! It's good. Keep warm." ("The Tenth Planet")
  • Second: "No! Stop, you're making me giddy! No, you can't do this to me! No, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no!" ("The War Games"). The TV Comics story "The Night Walkers" (TV Comic comic story) has the Second Doctor's last words as "Fear no more, Hogan...after this dreadful night has passed your scarecrows will not walk again!". There is also the Season 6B fan theory, however this also use The Night Walkers' final words.
  • Third: "A tear, Sarah Jane? No, don't cry. While there's life, there's..." ("Planet of the Spiders"). The novel "Interference: Book Two" (BBC Eighth Doctor Adventures novel #26) gave his last words as, "This is wrong...".
  • Fourth: "It's the end. But the moment has been prepared for." ("Logopolis")
  • Fifth: "I might regenerate. I don’t know. Feels different this time… Adric?" ("The Caves of Androzani"). In "Circular Time" (Big Finish audio story), they were "Thank you, all of you. Goodbye."
  • Sixth: Since he didn't speak before dying in "Time and the Rani", and we didn't see his adventures between "The Trial of a Time Lord" and that story, his final on screen words were "Carrot juice! Carrot juice! Carrot juice!" As "Terror of the Vervoids" takes place further down his timeline though, it would make his last chronological on screen words "Vesti la guibba e la faccia." In "Time and the Rani" (novelisation) his final words were "Take a look at the computer read-out screen". However, "Spiral Scratch" (BBC Past Doctor Adventures novel #72) tells us it's "Local… tractor beam…" Finally, the Big Finish audio play "The Brink of Death" (Big Finish audio story) has it as "I've had a good innings... All those lives I've lived. I hope the footprint I leave will be light, but apposite... Who said that? Who is that? Who's there...?"
  • Seventh: "The Master, he's out there! He's out there... I know... I've got to stop...him..." ("Doctor Who", the 1996 TV movie). "Oh yes, I've got last words - several billion last words, in fact! It’s high time, Nobody No-One, that you heard exactly what kind of a man I am…", “They always said I would be. Pick a good life for yourself, Thomas Hector Schofield. I meant it when I said how very proud of you…” (both from "A Death in the Family" (Big Finish audio story)). Also, the webcast Death Comes to Time featured the Doctor, in his Seventh Incarnation dying for the final time. His last words were “I've been dead before.”
  • Eighth: In unfinished version of "The Flood" (Doctor Who Magazine comic story) part Eight (eventually printed in the graphic novel of the same name) they were to be “It’s all right… Destrii… You got me back to the TARDIS… that’s all I needed… No point… in being scared… You're changing… that’s all… I know it hurts… I know it’s frightening… But change… is what it’s all about…". When that was left unfinished, his regeneration was not depicted until "The Night of the Doctor", where they were "Physician, heal thyself.".
  • War: "Oh yes. Of course. Suppose it makes sense. Wearing a bit thin. I do hope the ears are a bit less conspicuous this time." ("The Day of the Doctor")
  • Ninth: "Rose... Before I go, I just wanna tell you, you were fantastic. Absolutely fantastic. And do you know what? So was I!" ("The Parting of the Ways")
  • Tenth: "I'm sorry. It's too late. I'm regenerating" ("The Stolen Earth")
  • Tenth (2): "I don't want to go!" ("The End of Time")
  • Eleventh: "Times change and so must I. We all change, when you think about it. We are all different people all through our lives and that’s okay, that’s good you've got to keep moving so long as you remember all the people that you used to be. I will not forget one line of this, not one day, I swear. I will always remember when the Doctor was me… Hey..." ("The Time of the Doctor"). “Okay. Okay.”, “Because I know who he is!” (both from "Amy's Choice", and both turned out to be dreams). “Bye bye, Pond.” ("The Big Bang", but he was brought back by Amy). “I'm from your future. We haven’t got long to reset time.” ("Journey to the Centre of the TARDIS").
  • Twelfth (technically his confession dial clone): To be revealed

Other versions of the Doctor have also had last words;

  • Dr. Who: "Yes, and I shall!" ("Daleks' Invasion Earth 2150 A.D." (cinema film)) (His real last words are unknown. These are just the last ones we heard.)
  • Robot First Doctor: "Chesterton, now’s your chance. Destroy it. Destroy it with a rock! Susan, don’t look this way, it'll be nasty. Oh. Aaah! No!" ("The Chase")
  • Fourth Doctor's clone: "Get out of my brain!" ("The Invisible Enemy")
  • The Sixth Doctor's clone: “Just go! I… I was never alive… it doesn’t matter. Save the aliens: they… matter…” ("Project Lazarus" (Big Finish audio story)).
  • Valeyard: "My lady" ("The Trial of a Time Lord") (last words heard onscreen)
  • Half-human Tenth: "Together" ("Journey's End") (last words clear heard onscreen, although he whispered in Rose's ear after this, and presumably said things off-screen)
  • The Dream Lord: "I have been defeated. I shall withdraw. Farewell.” ("Amy's Choice").
  • The Tesellecta Doctor: "Sorry" ("The Impossible Astronaut").
  • The Ganger Doctor: "Geronimo" ("The Almost People").

  • The Curse of Fatal Death Ninth Doctor: "I can communicate with the Master by carefully controlled breaking of wind." ("The Curse of Fatal Death")
  • The Conceited Doctor: "I think in my new body I'm going to be particularly good at rewiring." ("The Curse of Fatal Death")
  • Jim Broadbent's Doctor: "Probably not a bad idea, actually. Shouldn’t be too much of a problem. Actually, I think the problem’s probably located in this area." ("The Curse of Fatal Death")
  • Twelfth Doctor from "The Curse of Fatal Death": "I'm afraid this is the end. Look after the universe for me. I've put a lot of work into it." ("The Curse of Fatal Death")
