Sacrifice was the offering of food, objects or lives to a supernatural being.
On the planet P7E, sacrifices were carried out by the Seers. They involved a sword being placed over the victim and tied in place. The lamp of life was then lit and hoisted beneath the cloth. When it burnt through, the sword would fall and kill the sacrifice. Leela asked the Doctor why they went to such trouble and he told her that it was designed to intimidate. (TV: Underworld)
On Delta III, the Swampies offered the Doctor, Romana, and Rohm-Dutt as sacrifices to Kroll. The method chosen was the seventh of the Seven Holy Rituals. The three were tied with vines, called creepers, that would tighten under sunlight. The creepers would constrict, eventually snapping their spines. The Doctor broke a window, wetting the creepers in the rain causing them to loosen and allow escape. (TV: The Power of Kroll)
