I've not watched all the doctors (mostly just the last three) however of those I have each incarnation seems to have a phrase (or several) which they use very frequently. These are:

  • 9 - Fantastic
  • 10 - Allons Y
  • 11 - Geronimo

Is this just a pattern of the modern series or does it go back through most of the doctors?

    I think it's one of those where many do but there's no hard and fast rule. Thanks for the examples and link! – Liath May 2 '13 at 10:42
