No Time for Mercy!  

A comic panel showing the second Doctor pulling a cable out of the chest unit of a Mondasian Cyberman.  The Doctor is saying `Only five minutes left... no time for mercy!' while the distressed looking Cyberman says `A-A-A-A-H! Alarm.. Alert all Cybermen! A-A-A-A-AH!'
You know, while the Doctor on the television has been both merciless and violent, I'm not sure I can quite picture him ever declaring that there was no time for mercy.

I believe there's another second Doctor strip of that time where he shoots a giant spider with a ray gun while yelling "Die, hideous creature, die!" So much for "I used to have so much mercy."

I agree that I'm not sure the Doctor has ever been particularly merciful - though I think he very rarely explicitly acknowledges as such. However parrot_knight has suggested and londonkds (DW) have both suggested that the second Doctor comic strips were particularly out of character in this regard.
