*** In the Missing Adventure book ''The Empire of Glass'', the First Doctor is mistaken for a visiting Cardinal when visiting Venice. ''Conversely'', the Cardinal himself is mistaken for the Doctor and escorted by the aliens who initially called the Doctor to chair a galactic disarmament treaty. The Cardinal manages a surprisingly good performance (he thought he had been called to Heaven to mediate in a civil war between angels), enough that the event's organizer lets him keep on chairing the treaty.

* In Graham Greene's ''Film/TheThirdMan'', the main character, an author of pulp westerns, is mistaken for a far more literary writer whose name is similar to the protagonist's pen-name. The protagonist speaks at an event organised for the other writer without anyone working it out. Indeed his adoring readers are impressed by his daring disregard for writers like James Joyce. In fact, the protagonist hasn't even heard of them.
