In the episode Survival, an Earth cat is savaged to death by an alien cat, although this scene is infamous in the fandom for extremely unconvincing special effects, so the blow MAY be softened. Proceed with caution.

The season 11 episode "Arachnids in the UK" obviously features spiders. Like, a lot of them.

Arachnophobes will want to avoid the TV stories Planet of the Spiders, "The Runaway Bride", and "Kill the Moon", as well as the novels "Festival of Death" and "The Crawling Terror" and the audio drama "Empire of the Racnoss".

Travelling with the Doctor is described as being an addiction by 12 to Clara. Characters are seen drinking or in bars.

The Tom Baker story Nightmare of Eden is about drug smuggling, although it's a fictional Sci-Fi drug and not a real one.

In S12 E7, a character is able to detach their fingers from their hand, but it is not gory.

In Mummy on the Orient Express a ghostly finger passes through the Doctor's eye. No harm, but super creepy.

Planet of Fire involves a character burning to death on-screen. Dark Water claims that humans are conscious postdeath and spend their final moments mentally begging not to be cremated; this turns out to be false.

There is a whole character who rips out the teeth of their victims and places them on their face.

A major plot point in The Greatest Show in the Galaxy. Characters in Carnival of Monsters resemble clowns; this may not have been intentional.

in "The Long Game" there's a scene where Adam, after receiving his upgrade, vomits from the shock of seeing his own brain. However the vomit itself is turned into an ice cube.

Multiple characters are doctors/nurses, and Smith and Jones takes place mostly in a hospital.

In S11-E1, a character states that they did have cancer, but are in remission. There is no evidence the cancer has returned.

Curse of Fenric and The God Complex both involve psychologically breaking characters through telling them their experiences thus far have been lies.

No, but characters believe that someone may have or that she was wrong about being pregnant. Same character is infertile eventually.

S*x is alluded to often but the most ever shown is kissing. One character's conception is discussed at length.

No, but multiple times there is not consent in kissing someone.

No, but the episode "Rosa" is extremely racist.

In A Town Called Mercy, the Doctor claims to have communicated with a supposedly male horse and learned the horse "prefers to be called Susan", however the Doctor continues to use male pronouns. Whether this is intended to be the Doctor misgendering the horse or not is not clarified.

By far most episodes have a happy ending, either on TV or any other medium, with the Doctor saving the day with minimal loss of life, before, after being thanked by the survivors, going off to another adventure. However, there are some rare exceptions to this rule, including, but not limited to, The War Games (the Doctor is successfully captured and executed by the Time Lords, before regenerating), Doctor Who and the Silurians", The Sea Devils", "Warriors of the Deep" (in all 3 cases, the Doctor fails to make peace between humans and an intelligent reptile race called the Silurians, resulting in a huge death toll for both species) "Blood Heat" (novel, the Doctor is forced to destroy an entire alternate universe), "He Jests at Scars" (audio drama, the Valeyard and Mel get trapped in suspended animation for all eternity, forever concious but unable to move or even scream), "Lucie Miller"/"To the Death" (two-part audio drama, three of the Doctor's companions die, driving him almost to insanity), and "Army of Ghosts"/"Doomsday" (two-parter, the Doctor is forcibly seperate from his companion Rose Tyler). As I said, this is not a complete list, as there are probably more I've forgotten, not seen/read/listen to, or you may disagree on whether it counts as 'happy', but MOST stories not on this list SHOULD be safe.

In the Christmas special "Last Christmas" the Doctor says he knows he is in a dream because Santa is there, and Santa isn't real
