Ducking stools were chairs formerly used as punishment towards women during witch trials in England and Scotland.

The Thirteenth Doctor was once unable to save Old Mother Twiston from being tried as a witch and drowned, later the Doctor herself was denounced as a witch and chained to a ducking stool but ultimately escaped from her chains after being submerged. (TV: The Witchfinders)
