Underpants, also known as boxer shorts or simply pants, were a type of clothing worn by humans and humanoid species. Variants worn by women were known as knickers.
Among the clothing taken by Jackie Tyler to clean at the Wash Inn were a pair of her knickers. She humourously noted to Elton Pope the absurdity that they were complete strangers while she was flashing him her knickers. In his true form, the Abzorbaloff wore nothing but a pair of unfitting black underpants which allowed the faces of victims he had consumed to be seen across his body, including Bliss, who was embedded into his posterior.

Rory Williams was interrupted by UNIT in the process of dressing and marched at gunpoint into the kitchen wearing underpants – he told the Eleventh Doctor, "there are soldiers all over my house, and I'm in my pants". (TV: The Power of Three)
The Eighth Doctor wore question mark underpants. (COMIC: The Glorious Dead) Sam Jones knew of this, replying when asked if he might be "divine" with "Gods do not wear question-mark boxer shorts." (PROSE: Seeing I) When Petronella Osgood asked the Twelfth Doctor why he stopped wearing question marks, he told her that he too wore question mark underpants. (TV: The Zygon Invasion)
Behind the scenes Edit
According to Peter Capaldi, a pair of the distinctive underpants were in fact on set during the shooting of The Zygon Inversion. "I've got to say, they were actually sitting in my trailer on the day I made that remark," he said at the 2015 Doctor Who Festival. "Whether or not I put them on is a Doctor Who mystery. I'll leave you guessing."
