“‘Can I ask you something personal?’ he said.
I.M. Foreman nodded. ‘I warn you, though. If it’s anything to do with how I got this body, the details are going to be messy. You’ve never been a woman, have you?’
‘I’m not sure I’ve ever even been a man. That’s not what I was going to ask.’”
---Eight, Interference Book One

(also falls under “no allo”)

~ * ~

Doctor: That’s not what I’m like.
Amy: Then what are you like?
Doctor: I don’t know. Gandalf. I’m a space Gandalf, or the little green one in Star Wars. [makes lightsaber noise]
Amy: You really are not. You are a bloke.

“He stared at her almost hypnotically. ‘I promise you, I will not allow Haldoran to harm you again.’
Donna faltered. ‘I know better than to trust the word of any man ever again,’ she said bitterly.

“'He can’t help what he is. His gender is alien, but intransigent. The cosmos is guided by male and female impulses - quite separate…’  
'That’s crap!’ Sam shouted. "The Doctor isn’t your average man, at all. I don’t think he even has a gender. How can you - whoever you are - pontificate on what he’s like? He’s private. He’s untouchable.'” 
---Eight, The Scarlett Empress

~ * ~

Rose: Okay, so he’s vanished into thin air. Why is it always the great looking ones who do that?
The Doctor: I’m making an effort not to be insulted.
Rose: I mean, men.
The Doctor [sarcastically]: Okay, thanks, that really helped.
---Nine, The Doctor Dances
(??? bad evidence, but a reference to nine’s perception of their gender + implies rose doesn’t see them as man, at least not in the traditional sense? if that’s relevant at all)

The Doctor: Yeah, I might do that.

---Twelve, Death in Heaven


Charley: Another wonderful opportunity to wear a nice dress.
The Doctor: That’d be a bit conspicuous, wouldn’t it?
Charley: An opportunity for me.

(this one's iffy but it honestly doesn't sound like he’s joking and i think its cute so)


Panna: Impossible. Was he present when you opened the box?
The Doctor: Yes. Most enlightening.
Panna: What’s he babbling about? No male can open the Box of Jhana without being driven out of his mind. It is well known. 
---Five, Kinda



“The Doctor is mysterious! He’s a Time Lord, he’s not a guy! He’s a special creature. I don’t even know if he even has a corporeal being! He presents this to everyone, but he may exist in a totally different plane. He’s not a guy!”
---Peter Capaldi, 2015 Comic Con
