Doctor Who

Rose - S1-E1

Stupidity: During the scene at the restaurant, Rose pulls the fire alarm. Then she and the doctor run through the kitchen, past several chefs who just duck and crouch into corners. This would easily be one of the stupidest ideas ever. If there was a fire, they would evacuate out the back door instead of just sitting there waiting to be choked to death. And if they knew about Auton Mickey, running out the back door would also be a lot more logical than just crouching down and waiting to be battered to death.

The Power of the Doctor - S13-E9

Stupidity: While on the Cyber planet in 1916, the Doctor receives a call from Kate Stewart telling her to come to Unit HQ in 2022 immediately, prompting her to then reluctantly ditch all her problems she's currently dealing with, to go to Unit. The TARDIS literally has all the time in the universe, so even if she waited a really long time, the problems in 2022 would still be there, so there was no need for her to change plans so abruptly.

The Power of the Doctor - S13-E9

Stupidity: After the crew of the space train have taken out the Cybermen, the Cybermen begin regenerating, which one of the crew points out. This guy seems to be aware of how regeneration works, but doesn't shoot at them again. In the series, it has been shown that shooting someone during a regeneration cycle will kill them instantly, but this idea is never considered.

Casual Person

The Power of the Doctor - S13-E9

Stupidity: When Yaz finds the huge Dalek drill, she starts saying everything she is thinking aloud, commenting "They're already here. Seismology. Volcanoes. Daleks, and the Master. This is not good news." There is absolutely no reason for her to say this out loud, considering that she is completely alone and saying this could've risked her getting caught.

The Satan Pit (2) - S2-E12

Doctor: So, that's the trap. Or the test or the final judgment, I don't know. But if I kill you, I kill her. Except that implies, in this big grand scheme of Gods and Devils, that she's just a victim. But I've seen a lot of this universe. I've seen fake gods and bad gods and demi-gods and would-be gods - out of all that - out of that whole pantheon - if I believe in one thing... Just one thing... I believe in her.

Chosen answer: The Master knows that deep down, he deserves death for the crimes that he's committed throughout his life, and since he regards The Doctor as his arch-foe, he expects it to be at his hands. The fact that The Doctor is still willing to forgive him for all of his crimes hurts him more deeply than death would.
