* In the BBC's ''Fourth Doctor Adventures'' series, "Tsar Wars" features the Fourth Doctor meeting his IdenticalStranger {{Rasputin}}. Creator/TomBaker had played the 'mad monk' in ''Film/NicholasAndAlexandria'' (in what was his signature role before getting cast as the Doctor). In the same audio, Michael Jayston (known in the Whoniverse for playing the Valeyard) plays the Tsar, also a pseudo-reprisal of his role in ''Nicholas and Alexandria''.

** "Paris" contains several, as it is a mystery with Martin trying to figure out what happened to a bottle of whiskey. He [[MangledCatchphrase tries for a Sherlock Holmes line and bungles it]]: "We’ve taken away all the things that can possibly have happened, so I suppose the only thing that’s left, even though it seems really weird, must be the thing that did happen, in fact." Arthur later compares him to... Miss Marple.

When he states his theory about what happened, he slips into ''Series/{{Sherlock}}'''s style of delivery from the famous deduction scenes (although sticking with the voice that Cumberbatch uses to play Martin). Arthur later compares him to... Miss Marple.

** He also does a bit of sleuthing in ''Paris'', which prompts Arthur to compare him to... Miss Marple.
