* In "[[Recap/DoctorWhoS33E6TheBellsOfStJohn The Bells of St John]]", when the Doctor and Clara find themselves on a crashing plane, the conversation about how neither of them know how to fly it, ending with the Doctor saying "Fine, we'll do it together" is a reference to a conversation in ''Franchise/TheHitchHikersGuideToTheGalaxy'' where Zaphod establishes that neither he, Ford nor Trillian know how to pilot the ''Heart of Gold'' manually.

* The ''Robin of Sherwood'' theme in ''[[Recap/DoctorWhoS34E3 Robot of Sherwood]]'' [[ShoutOut carries an unmistakable riff]] from the theme of ''Film/RobinHoodPrinceOfThieves'', likely intended to underline just how ridiculously stereotypical Robin is.

* The title of the ''Doctor Who'' Expanded Universe novel ''The Taking of Chelsea 426'' is a double reference: first (and most obviously) to the movie ''[[{{Film/TheTakingOfPelhamOneTwoThree}} The Taking of Pelham 123]]'', and second to the planet [[Film/{{Aliens}} LV-426]].

** The cold spot and the music room being 'the heart of the house' are direct references to 'The Haunting of Hill House' by Creator/ShirleyJackson (it was the nursery in the book.)

** There are homages to works like the Film/IndianaJones film series (the Doctor's IndyHatRoll moment with the screwdriver, MalevolentArchitecture and traps in an ancient temple, Ravenwood being the maiden name of Clara's mum, even the poster for the episode) and '''Film/BladeRunner'' (the shot of Clara's eyes reflecting a stylised scenery, the Doctor's and Clara's speech in the finale having similarities to Roy Batty's famous final monologue). Interestingly enough, an interview with Jenna Coleman at the time had her mentioning that Matt Smith recommended she watch ''Film/RaidersOfTheLostArk'' before filming Series 7.

* Almost all of "[[Recap/DoctorWhoS30E15PlanetOfTheDead Planet of The Dead]]" is a shout out to "The Langoliers" by Creator/StephenKing. From the vehicle falling through a wormhole into a strange and empty world, the ominous but vague something lurking on the horizon that turns out to be a horde of creatures that devour everything in their path, to the psychic sensing their approach.
