In 1970s London, the Third Doctor and Brigadier Lethbridge-Stewart encountered parrots at a zoo which were in a frenzy. They broke out of their cage and attacked the Doctor and the Brigadier, but the two men escaped by diving into a pool of penguins, which also attacked them. The parrots then flew off towards the town to wreak havoc there — and oddly, were never seen nor mentioned again. (COMIC: The Arkwood Experiments)
Parrots were known for the habit of mimicking and repeating voices. The Fourth Doctor once asked Leela, "Why do you keep repeating everything I say. You're not a parrot, are you?", to which Leela, ignorant of his reference, could only reply, "Parrot?". (TV: The Invisible Enemy)
There was a parrot in the TARDIS by the time of the Doctor's fourth incarnation. (AUDIO: The Sands of Life / War Against the Laan) It remained in the TARDIS until at least his eighth incarnation. (AUDIO: The Light at the End)
Pirates were frequently associated with pet parrots. The Captain of Zanak had a Polyphase Avatron, a parrot-like robot (TV: The Pirate Planet), while Baltazar had the robotic Squawk. (TV: The Infinite Quest)
