* Episode 4 of ''Series/TheCrown2016'' covers the Great Smog of 1952. As detailed in RealLife below, it was a noxious soup of fog and vehicle exhaust that was exacerbated by coal smoke from furnaces. The hospitals are quickly overwhelmed by respiratory patients and both Winston Churchill's opponents and fellow Conservatives try unavailingly to convince him that the smog is a serious problem of human origin--it gets so bad that they encourage the young Queen Elizabeth to intervene with him. He only realizes the depth of his mistake when the lack of visibility results in his young secretary being fatally struck by a bus, and he sees just how swamped the hospital is when he visits the morgue.

The ending titles of the episode inform viewers that 4,000 deaths in the following months were attributed to the smog, but more recent research raises the estimate to ''12,000.''

* In the first of the ''Literature/{{Deathlands}}'' novels, the Darks are protected by this trope, apparently a pre-WW3 weapon called Project Cerberus used to guard the MAT-TRANS PortalNetwork (or at least that particular gate).

* Lights Out by Arch Oboler had a classic story called "The Dark," about a fog that turns people inside out, famously referenced in ''Series/TheSimpsons'' Treehouse of Horror V. Originally broadcast in the early 40s, the original version was lost, but a 1962s abbreviated version Oboler made in 1962 still exists and is creepy as ever.
