Doctor Who

The Stolen Earth (1) - S4-E12

Trivia: When Harriet Jones is explaining the sub-wave network to the Doctor's companions she says "It was created by the Mr. Copper Foundation." This is a reference to Mr. Copper from "Voyage of the Damned", who stayed to live on Earth and who probably would have had the advanced technology from the planet Stow where he came from.

The Stolen Earth (1) - S4-E12

Trivia: The Doctor mentioning that someone tried to move the Earth once before, a long time ago, is a reference to the First Doctor serial "The Dalek Invasion of Earth", in which the Daleks intended to replace the planet's core with an engine in order to do the moving. And, of course, the Daleks are responsible for this episode's titular planet theft as well.

The Satan Pit (2) - S2-E12

Doctor: So, that's the trap. Or the test or the final judgment, I don't know. But if I kill you, I kill her. Except that implies, in this big grand scheme of Gods and Devils, that she's just a victim. But I've seen a lot of this universe. I've seen fake gods and bad gods and demi-gods and would-be gods - out of all that - out of that whole pantheon - if I believe in one thing... Just one thing... I believe in her.
