doctor who easter egg

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.

Did I miss any?

What I Want from S3 of Young Justice

1. Megan & Connor better be dating each other again and end up engaged or married.

2. Jason Todd, I want him to appear as Red Hood.

3. More appearances & plotting by the Light.

4. Swamp Thing and/or Constantine appearing. We need more Constantine.

5. You know how there was an Muhammad Ali vs. Superman comic published a long time ago. Well, I want something like that, except with WWE Wrestlers.

6. Harley Quinn & Poison Ivy to wreck havoc. 

7. The team being trapped in Arkham Asylum.

8. Appearance by Supergirl with some cousin/sibling rivalry with Superboy.

9. Crossover with something (doubt it will happen but cool idea). (It can be within DC Comics, or intercompany, we had an Doctor Who easter egg in one episode disguised as a Zeta Tube. They can start there.)

10. Catwoman, a friend of mine wants her to appear in the show so bad.

11. Have new heroes/villains made up for the show. It would help introduce heroes/villains we could love like how Batman: The Animated Series introduced us to Harley Quinn.

Sherlock (TV series) + Doctor Who (TV series) - Sherlock and John at falls in Doctor Who

In Doctor Who’s The Bells of Saint John, written by Moffat, a book called Summer Falls by Amelia Williams (née Pond) makes an appearance.

In the cover there are two boys physically resembling Sherlock Holmes and John Watson from BBC Sherlock.

There are some other associations with them as:

  • Holmes and Watson are related to the Reichenbach Falls, in different ways depending on the adaptation.
    The book is called Summer Falls and there are falls on the cover.
  • Holmes and Watson are related to dogs, in different ways depending on the adaptation. In some they even keep one.
    The book depicts the boys in the company of a dog.

The other kid could possibly represent another character from Sherlock, like Eurus Holmes or Emelia Ricoletti.
The dog could represent Victor Trevor, whom Sherlock misremembered as a his childhood pet.

Here’s the dialogue the scene comes with:

CLARA: What chapter are you on?
ARTIE: 10.
CLARA: 11 is the best. You’ll cry your eyes out.

This could be a simple reference to the then Doctor, Eleven, but it could also be related to the use of number 11 in Sherlock.
Here’s some meta on the matter:

Billy, Holmes’ page and possibly kind of an adopted son, dresses up as Amelia and pretends to be his daughter in ACD canon’s play “The Speckled Band”.
Amelia Williams is a combination of Amelia and Billy.
Which would also make it a good name for John’s child in series 4 and/or the other one.

Both the first name and the surname of Amelia Williams are shared by Sherlock’s characters, but this is probably just a consequence of Moffat having named Amelia Pond and Rory Williams after Sherlock’s characters in the first place (read Why is the bride called Emelia? and Rory Arthur comes from Moriarty) and not a direct element of the easter egg.

The Model S Tesla is also equipped with nods to Spaceballs (“Ludicrous Speed” is now a thing), can quote The Hitchhiker’s Guide To The Galaxy to you if you name it “42,” and if you enter the “007” secret access code, it will even morph on its display into James Bond’s underwater car “Wet Nellie” from The Spy Who Loved Me. This car is that one friend you keep trying to outnerd, only for him to shoot back with an even more obscure reference every time.

However, in true Doc Brown fashion, the Model S’s coolest feature (also shared by the Model X) has to do with roads. You know those boring roads that boring automakers put on their boring GPS maps, for boring reasons like “making sure you don’t die”? Well, if you press your Tesla’s autopilot four times, you’ll hear a cowbell ring, transforming your map into a dead ringer for the Rainbow Road track from Mario Kart. If only they’d let us lob digital turtle shells at the Volkswagen with the Trump sticker in front of us.
