Classic Who references in “The Doctor Falls”
- when offering him a menu of ways to die, Missy mentions that she knows the Doctor has already fallen to his death once. The Master pushed the Fourth Doctor to his death off a radio tower.
- when the Doctor regains consciousness in the TARDIS, he shouts about “Sontarans perverting the course of human history.” The Fourth Doctor’s first words. (Not the first time that Twelve has said this either. Said the same thing upon regaining consciousness in “Listen.”)
- The Doctor offers a Jelly Baby.
- Both Twelve and One mention that they are not a doctor, but “The Doctor. The original, you might say.” The Fourth Doctor told Harry Sullivan “ You may be a doctor. But I’m the Doctor. The definite article, you might say. “
- when the Fifth Doctor regenerates in the Sixth, there is also a montage of companions calling his name.
- The First Doctor. Of course. (This is not the first time the First Doctor has been recast, BTW. Richard Hurndall played him in “The Five Doctors.”)
- when calling out places where he he has defeated the Cybermen: Telos and Voga.
