The Sixth Doctor was noted for his sarcasm, as well. (TV: The Mysterious Planet) The Eighth Doctor, however, sometimes had trouble recognising it, and seemed unaware of its use on at least one occasion. (PROSE: Dead Time)
When Lucie Miller said "no kidding", she and the Eighth Doctor were not meant to get out, the Doctor asked her why she always resorted to sarcasm. Lucie referred to it as her super power. "I am Sarcasmo, woman of sarcasm. My enemies are struck down by my barbs of steel. [...] Barbs. Barbed comments?" (AUDIO: Human Resources)
The Fifth Doctor noted that Peri Brown, however, was not adept at sarcasm, in response to her attempt at it. "Maybe someone wanted some sand to make some glass so they could blow a new vacuum tube for their reticular vector gauge." (TV: The Caves of Androzani) The Third Doctor noted that sarcasm was always a weak point with the Time Lord messenger who informed him about the Master. (TV: Terror of the Autons)
The First Doctor detected "a hint of sarcasm" in Ian Chesterton, after he said, "Oh, wonderful. I've always wanted one," in response to a scientific explanation given by the Doctor which he did not understand. (TV: "The Executioners")
When Steven Taylor volunteered himself to exit the TARDIS, and find out where they were, the First Doctor refused. He didn't think Steven's "present humour" was "fitting" for the occasion, and the soldiers outside wouldn't appreciate his kind of sarcasm. The Doctor himself checked out their whereabouts; the TARDIS was in Troy, during the Trojan War. (TV: The Myth Makers)
Jack Harkness told Gwen Cooper and Ianto Jones that "I do the sarcasm around here". Gwen had joked that Jack avoided old people's homes because they'd guess his age and drag him in, to which Ianto responded: "He doesn't want to run into yet another old flame." (AUDIO: The Devil and Miss Carew)
