Love was an emotion which K9 Mark 2 struggled to understand, receiving no clear answer when asking his human company. (TV: Aeolian) Peri Brown defined it to Yrcanos, the man who would become her husband, (TV: The Ultimate Foe) as "when you care for someone or something more than yourself", "sometimes more than life." (TV: Mindwarp) In its most amplified form, love could turn to lust. (PROSE: Slow Decay)

According to the Twelfth Doctor, love was not an emotion, but a promise. (TV: Death in Heaven) The Tenth Doctor was confused as to how humans fell in love so quickly. He decided it must be their short lifespans. (AUDIO: Death and the Queen)

He questioned, "Have you no emotions, sir?" (TV: The Tenth Planet, Twice Upon a Time)

The Doctor Edit

When asked if he had ever loved another, the Fifth Doctor answered in the affirmative, that he "[knew] what it mean[t] to have cared for people". (AUDIO: Empire of the Racnoss)

Although River Song once declared her belief that the Doctor was incapable of a romantic relationship, (TV: The Husbands of River Song) they proved themselves capable, on occasion, of expressing romantic feelings for others.

When with the Aztecs, the First Doctor accidentally got engaged to a woman called Cameca, when she poured cocoa beans in front of him, not realising the Aztec symbolism that sharing cocoa was a proposal of marriage. Cameca gave him a brooch during his visit, which he was planning to leave behind before leaving in the TARDIS, but then picked up again, indicating that he did show real affection for Cameca. (TV: The Aztecs)

The Sixth Doctor once confessed that be believed he was falling in love with Bianca, an evil future incarnation of Iris Wildthyme, though these feelings were ultimately a ploy by the Doctor to defeat her, as well as an effect of the psychic worms in the alcohol Bianca had given the Doctor.

The Seventh Doctor once stated that he maintained an external image of asexuality so as to keep his relationships with others simple. (PROSE: Death and Diplomacy)

(AUDIO: Scherzo)

In one instance, a Dalek exploited the Ninth Doctor's feelings towards Rose Tyler, to make him compliant, by asking, "What use are emotions if you cannot save the woman you love?" (TV: Dalek) Some believed the two were romantically involved. (TV: Aliens of London, Father's Day, PROSE: The Beast of Babylon) The Doctor also told Rose that he found marrying for love overrated, saying she could "ask Lady Mary Wortley Montagu" to verify his claim. (PROSEOnly Human

The Tenth Doctor had a number of female admirers, including Queen Elizabeth I, to whom he got married and left behind at the altar. (TV: The Day of the Doctor) He once fell in love with Madame de Pompadour, who took him away to "dance". He was particularly saddened by her death before she had the opportunity to travel with him. (TV: The Girl in the Fireplace) Rose was openly jealous of the Doctor's relationships with both Madame de Pompadour and Sarah Jane Smith. (TV: School Reunion, The Girl in the Fireplace) When saying goodbye to the Doctor, Rose admitted that she loved him, a feeling that the Doctor was unable to say back. (TV: Doomsday, Journey's End) Martha Jones admitted that she loved the Tenth Doctor, but believed that he could not return the feeling because of falling in love never occurring to him, (TV: Human Nature/The Family of Blood) causing her to leave later on.
