"Oh, my giddy aunt" was a colloquialism that was often used as an exclamation of surprise.

By the Doctor Edit

The Second Doctor used the phrase often. He said it to himself when he saw the side-effects of RTC units, (PROSE: Invasion of the Cat-People) to himself when he was surprised by a Kroton, (TV: The Krotons) to Sergeant Benton as a Gell guard tried to enter the TARDIS, (TV: The Three Doctors) and to Dastari during an argument in a cellar. (TV: The Two Doctors)

A clone of the Second Doctor said it as Lucius threatened to devour him. (AUDIO: Survivors in Space)

The Eleventh Doctor said it while facing a Diceman with Henry Gordon Jago. (AUDIO: The Jago & Litefoot Revival)

The Seventh Doctor, when asked about his family, once listed only his granddaughter and a giddy aunt, "but she was probably a metaphor". (AUDIO: Forever Fallen)
