There was a Doctor Who reference in fellow time-travel series Crime Traveller in episode 6 Death Minister as noted by IMDb:
“Notice the Dr. Who music that is played in the background when Slade notices the police box as he leaves the Big Box Co.”
Slade was played by Michael French who smiled upon seeing the police box. However French has yet to grace himself with an appearance in Doctor Who.
The presence of a police box perhaps marks the closest that the other main Crime Traveller cast member Chloe Annett who would later play Kristine Kochanski in Red Dwarf came to appearing in Doctor Who. This plus the fact she had Mary Tamm (Romana I) playing her aunt in earlier Crime Traveller episode A Death In The Family.
Crime Traveller was originally shown in 1997 a year after the 1996 Doctor Who TV movie did not result in a new Doctor Who TV series.
There has been perceptions that Crime Traveller was conceived as a new time travel series by the BBC in place of Doctor Who but unlike Doctor Who, Crime Traveller was not destined to have a long-term future as it ended just two episodes after Death Minister.

The Time of the Doctor: Behind The Lens:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EH3hbEo_g1E

Surprised that it was pointed out here that Sheila Reid (Clara’s Gran) had been in Doctor Who before when she played Etta in the Colin Baker story Vengeance on Varos and I admit that it did immediately register to me upon seeing The Time of the Doctor.
What I definitely did not know about before from watching this Behind The Lens that Elizabeth Rider (Linda) had been involved with Doctor Who not on-screen but by her providing the voice of the ATMOS GPS in The Sontaran Stratagem/The Poison Sky.
What wasn’t mentioned here is that Elizabeth Rider had also been in The Sarah Jane Adventures in Lost In Time playing Ellen.
Definitely emotional for Matt Smith on his last days as the Doctor and quite obvious how much he and Jenna Coleman will miss each other.
Perhaps an appropriate goodbye gift that was given to Matt Smith.
An emotional behind the scenes send-off for the Eleventh Doctor.

Power of the Daleks: Reimagined (Film version):
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6Uw8wlWlRfw

This is the film version of the reimagined Power of the Daleks released in 2012, starring Nick Scovell as the Doctor and edited down and together from the episodic versions.
The film version is just as enjoyable from the episodic version.

Doctor Who Stories

Needle Point:
Ninth story.
Featuring the Tenth Doctor and Martha.
Martha becomes tired of tagging around with the Doctor in circles that she decides to wander off on her own.
It is when she sees multiple versions of the same old lady and they of course turned out to be nefarious aliens.
A very enjoyable story with Martha on her own for much of it and it is amusing how on her own she defeats these old ladies aliens.

Norfolk’s Doctor Who Stories:
http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/p01l3jg9

Presented by Paul Hayes (whom I actually encountered at a forum some years ago and did not imagine I would hear how he would sound like), this BBC Radio programme looks at the history of Norfolk with Doctor Who.
Interesting accounts about Norfolk with Doctor Who about a couple who both met with Tom Baker but years before they would meet each other!
Also of note is what writer David Fisher thought of Douglas Adams’ script editing abilities and Doctor Who Mastermind winner Karen Davies meeting Chris Eccleston just before it was announced that he was only doing one season as the Doctor.

Clive James – Doctor Who – Blake’s 7:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PvzHRSJnrns

At a guess this was sometime in the 1990s as Clive James has a look back on both Doctor Who and Blake’s 7.
Amusing on hearing some of the Who girls reprising their screams for James and good appearances from a couple of Blake’s 7 women including the presence of Jacqueline Pearce when a scene of her as Servalan requesting that a degrading act that was done to her be done again!

BBC Radio Kent Special - Doctor Who Anniversary:
http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/p01nfyyp


This BBC Radio programme celebrates the 50th anniversary of Doctor Who by looking at its link with Kent including the fact that was where Doctor Who’s very first writer Anthony Coburn had lived and wrote the first Doctor Who story.
Overall OK programme about Doctor Who and the legacy it has left behind.
It was interesting to hear just how much of Doctor Who was filmed in Kent.

From the Doctor Who News Page:
Gareth Roberts has revealed that he would be writing for Doctor Who season 38.
Roberts is the fourth writer confirmed for this season after showrunner Steven Moffat, Mark Gatiss and Neil Gaiman.

Forty-five

Big Finish celebrated the 45th anniversary of Doctor Who in November 2008 with the aptly titled Forty-five.
This featured the Seventh Doctor, Ace and Hex in four one-part stories under the Forty-five title and the number 45 is significant in each of these stories.

The first of these stories was False Gods.

False Gods:
Written by Mark Morris.
This guest stars Benedict Cumberbatch as real-life legendary archaeologist Howard Carter. Cumberbatch would go on to play Sherlock Holmes in Sherlock. In fact he would be reunited with Seventh Doctor Sylvester McCoy in The Hobbit movies.
It could easily be said that Cumberbatch playing Carter here could be somewhat prophetic to him playing Sherlock as Carter could easily be described as the Sherlock Holmes of archaeology.
Despite this contribution to the Doctor Who universe, Cumberbatch’s name has not been bolded in Dominic May’s Beyond The TARDIS articles in DWM which reports on the extracurricular activities of Doctor Who contributors and bolded names is given to Doctor Who contributors. Obviously someone needs to inform Mr May of Cumberbatch’s appearance in Forty-five so he can bold Cumberbatch’s name in future.
As with any character that he has played Cumberbatch plays Howard Carter superbly in this very enjoyable little story and the revelation about Jane Templeton as well as the loose ends that is expected to be tied up.
