Who refrences

Recommended Posts

I wanted to create place to discuss Doctor Who refrences in other media outlets.

For example...

I listen to the audio drama Star Trek Section 31 Files (okay, I listen to a ton of audio dramas). In their most recent episode, Nero's Legacy, there were 3 Who refrences. This included the direct quote about a character wearing Fez's, and one that said space ships should not be bigger on the inside that the outside.

There's an episode of CSI: New York that focuses on time travel, and the TARDIS can be heard taking off in the background of one scene.

There was also an episode of the 2008 Knight Rider series where Billy dressed up as Captain Jack for Halloween.

The show Leverage is bloated with Who references. The lead character has gone by the alias "Tom Baker" more than once.

I love Leverage, and have never noticed any refrences. I guess I will have to pay more attention.

From IMDB:

There are several references throughout the show to "Doctor Who" (2005). In "Leverage" The Bank Shot Job (2008) Hardison expresses his frustration at the amount of time it took him to torrent the latest episode of "Doctor Who". In "Leverage" The Mile High Job (2009), the aliases given are all references to "Doctor Who" (Nate's aliases, Peter Davison, Sylvester McCoy and Tom Baker, all portrayed The Doctor while Sophie's alias is Sarah Jane Baker, a reference to Sarah Jane Smith, one of The Doctor's companions). Furthermore, in "Leverage" The 12-Step Job (2009), Nate again uses the alias Tom Baker, while Parker uses Rose, the name of another one of The Doctor's companions. In "The Three-Card Monty Job," Hardison and Eliot assume the aliases "Detective Moffatt" and "Detective Davies," two of the executive producers and head writers of the new series.

Now that you mentioned it I did catch the Moffatt adn Davies refrences.

On the Facebook game FrontierVille, they have a little angel statue with it's eyes closed and if you put your cursor over it, the caption will read: "Blink and you're dead. They're that fast." Weeping Angels anyone?

I realize that this is a significant gap in reply, but he's also Giles on Buffy. Probably what he's most known for.
