*** alternatively Martha and Susan used to compete for roles, and Martha 'retreated' to New York after Susan beat her out once too often for a Screen Role... with some of her work even being mis-attributed to Susan due to faulty IMDb fact checking

** An odd corollary to the fact that Creator/DCComics don't exist in the ''Smallville'' universe is the fact that, apparently, Creator/MarvelComics don't exist either. (It's never directly stated that they don't, for obvious reasons, but the fact that characters are constantly discussing superheroes and super powers and frequently talk about comic books and make pop culture references while describing super-powered mutants without ever once mentioning the Comicbook/{{X-Men}}, Franchise/SpiderMan, etc., would seem to imply that they don't exist, even as fictional characters.
*** Odder still, in the Marvel continuity both Marvel Comics ''and'' DC Comics exist. It's sometimes mentioned that the Marvel books feature retellings of the heroes' "real-life" exploits ([[Comicbook/CaptainAmerica Steve Rogers]] even draws his), to the point where Comicbook/SheHulk has used them as evidence in court. How the Marvel continuity's DC comics stack up is more of a mystery.

*** Which makes me wonder if Dot ever remarks on how much the owner of the Rovers Return looks like that nasty Cindy Beale (both characters played by Michelle Collins).

* ''Series/{{Taxi}}'': In one episode, Jim turns on the jukebox and plays a song from the original Broadway run of ''Film/Grease'', which had Marilu Henner and Jeff Conaway in the cast. How odd that nobody noticed that Marty looked like Elaine or that struggling actor Bobby never complained about that lookalike that snagged the role of Tony.

** In the Series 7 finale, "[[Recap/DoctorWhoS33E13TheNameOfTheDoctor The Name of the Doctor]]", the Eleventh Doctor meets [[spoiler:another incarnation of himself]], played by John Hurt. However, the Doctor and [[Series/{{Torchwood}} Toshiko Sato]] have mentioned Creator/JohnHurt before, so he obviously exists. Maybe he just looks different?

** In the Series 7 finale, "[[Recap/DoctorWhoS33E13TheNameOfTheDoctor The [[Recap/DoctorWhoS33E13TheNameOfTheDoctor "The Name of the Doctor]]", Doctor"]], the Eleventh Doctor meets [[spoiler:another incarnation of himself]], played by John Hurt. However, the Doctor and [[Series/{{Torchwood}} Toshiko Sato]] have mentioned Creator/JohnHurt before, so he obviously exists. Maybe he just looks different?



** The Doctor mentions Arthur Dent in "[[Recap/DoctorWho2005CSTheChristmasInvasion The Christmas Invasion]]", commenting that "he" was a NiceGuy. If this is assumed to be a reference to Creator/DouglasAdams instead of the actual Arthur Dent (whose universe is perhaps too silly even for ''Doctor Who''), this is a problem, since Adams got his start writing episodes of ''Doctor Who'' during the Creator/TomBaker era. And either way, it makes it troubling when Rory references "the Restaurant at the end of the Universe" in "[[Recap/DoctorWhoS32E11TheGodComplex The God Complex]]".
** "[[Recap/DoctorWhoS31E3VictoryOfTheDaleks Victory of the Daleks]]" concerns the Doctor being a friend of Winston Churchill. [[ActorAllusion One of the previous Doctors, Jon Pertwee, actually was a top British spy in real life who answered directly to Winston Churchill -- and Churchill suggested he become an actor.]]
** In "[[Recap/DoctorWhoS34E3RobotOfSherwood Robot of Sherwood]]", the Twelfth Doctor accesses various fictional portrayals of Robin Hood. These include a picture from the TV adaptation starring Creator/PatrickTroughton--who played the Second Doctor.
** In a bonus scene made for the series 5 DVD release, The Doctor calls himself "Space Gandalf", which is only nearly accurate. But the Seventh Doctor, Creator/SylvesterMcCoy, plays the wizard Radagast in ''Film/TheHobbit'' films.
** "[[Recap/DoctorWho2016CSTheReturnOfDoctorMysterio The Return of Doctor Mysterio]]" references both DC and Marvel Comics, including direct mentions of both Franchise/{{Superman}} and Franchise/SpiderMan. Assuming all their film and TV adaptations exist in the Whoniverse, that would include ''Series/Supergirl2015'', which is part of the Franchise/{{Arrowverse}} which has featured Creator/JohnBarrowman[[note]]Captain Jack Harkness[[/note]], Colin Salmon[[note]][[Recap/DoctorWhoS30E8SilenceInTheLibrary Dr.]] [[Recap/DoctorWhoS30E9ForestOfTheDead Moon]][[/note]], Creator/AlexKingston[[note]]River Song[[/note]], and Creator/ArthurDarvill[[note]]Rory Williams[[/note]]; and Spidey's [[Film/CaptainAmericaCivilWar film]] [[Film/SpiderManHomecoming appearances]] in the Franchise/MarvelCinematicUniverse, a franchise which has not only had Creator/KarenGillan[[note]]Amy Pond[[/note]], but two of the Doctor's [[Creator/ChristopherEccleston previous]] [[Creator/DavidTennant incarnations]] as well!

** In "Mr. Monk and the Airplane", Creator/TimDaly makes an appearance as himself. Sharona mentions that he was in the show ''Series/{{Wings}}''. Monk says he's never heard of ''Wings'', which is a good thing because he'd be the first to note his uncanny resemblance to the actor who plays Antonio Scarpacci (as both Monk and Antonio are played by Tony Shalhoub). Not to mention that Daly and Shalhoub's co-star Steven Weber guest-stars in "Mr. Monk Is On The Air" as shock jock Max Hudson.

Added DiffLines:

***''Film/TheGodfather Part II'' is referenced in dialogue during flashbacks to Luke's time in prison. That movie in the ''Godfather'' trilogy stars Creator/RobertDeNiro as a young Vito Corleone, and De Niro acted alongside Creator/CharlieCox (Matt Murdock) in ''Film/{{Stardust}}'' as Captain Shakespeare.

** Dorothy, upon hearing that another bizarre St. Olaf festival is occurring, begins singing "Sunrise, Sunset," a song from ''FiddlerOnTheRoof.'' Guess who played Yente in the original Broadway cast of that musical? Apparently, Dorothy had a successful stage career before becoming a substitute teacher...
