Paralysis could occur from particularly violent movement or experiences; the Fourth Doctor was concerned that Sarah Jane Smith was paralysed following the two of them being caught in a quarry mine explosion. (TV: The Hand of Fear) Violent physical fighting and contact with points like the solar plexus could leave humans momentarily paralysed. (PROSE: Blood Harvest)
Jackie MacLean was paralysed as a result of a car accident perpetrated by her husband. (TV: Nightvisiting) Jackie since got around in a wheelchair, and adapted to her new condition. Her daughter April took care of her. (TV: For Tonight We Might Die)
Biologically induced paralysis Edit
Paralysis could also result from biological contact, with several substances being able to induce it. Unprotected contact with a spectrox nest resulted in spectrox toxaemia, beginning with a rash, followed by spasms then slow paralysis of spinal nerves and finally thermal death point. (TV: The Caves of Androzani)
Technologically induced paralysis Edit
Weapons technology could also be used to paralyse. The Sensorites', (TV: The Sensorites) the Quarks' (TV: The Dominators) and the Daleks' weapons (TV: "The Survivors") could be used to paralyse individuals.
Earth-based technology could also induce paralysis. Through the use of a taser gun or a stun gun, an individual could be stunned or paralysed, unable to move. (PROSE: Just War, Eternity Weeps, TV: End of Days)
