Maybe it's just me, but House, when takes control of the Tardis, reminds me of Shodan, for example in: HOUSE: So, are we having fun yet? I'm rather enjoying the sensation of having you running around inside me. That recalls: Shodan: Look at you, hacker: a pathetic creature of meat and bone, panting and sweating as you run through my corridors. How can you challenge a perfect, immortal machine?

Not really something that belongs in the article, but I was watching a French fansub of the episode on Dailymotion, and where the Doctor said "Come on then Sexy," the translation was "Allons-y Sexy"!

I'm probably going to sound needy and demanding, and I'm sorry for that... but, um, does anyone plan to actually recap this episode?

I'm not fond of the current review up right now (I know exactly the site it came from and it functioned great as a review but not as a recap). I have an almost-complete recap done that will probably replace what's up right now once my finals are done.

Idris talks like Dr Manhattan from Watchmen. I almost added that to the "Shout Out" section, but I don't think it is one — she simply talks that way for the same reason Dr Manhattan does. So it's not a shout out, it's just two different authors doing similar things as a result of similar set-ups.

What I'm saying is, should this be added at all or is it not even worth mentioning?

Sounds like an Expy?

Not exactly sure what trope this would fit under.

There was a passing line that the Doctor made concerning the Corsair that seems to suggest that Time Lords can change sex during regeneration.

Edit: Nevermind. Someone beat me to it.

Explanation to the editing of the quotes - having two quotes right on top of the page is a bit much. Also, the Badass Boast is pretty much only there because it adheres to Rule of Cool while the second is far more relevant to the episode.

EDIT: Well, they're both relevant, but...you get my point.

Thinking her name is "Sexy": I'm positive there's a trope for "You always say X when you talk to me, so my name must be X!" but for the life of me, I can't figure out what or where it is. Anyone know?

Blackadder: Right. Now all we have to do is fill in this MP application form. "Name"...Baldrick. First name?
Baldrick: Er... I'm not sure.
Blackadder: Well, you must have some idea.
Baldrick: Well, it might be Sod-Off.
Blackadder: What?
Baldrick: Well, when I was little and I used to play in the gutter, I used to say to the other snipes "Hello, my name's Baldrick." And they'd say "Yes we know. Sod off, Baldrick."

Sounds like a variant of Hello, Insert Name Here.

Not sure where this should go, I think it's Fandom Nod and/or Leaning on the Fourth Wall (certainly a Crowning Moment of Funny): When having their little tiff in the junkyard about the Doctor never reading instructions, Idris points out that the sign on the door of the TARDIS says "Pull to Open", but the Doctor always "pushes"!

The title - "The Doctor's Wife" - may be a callback to an incident when John Nathan-Turner was producer. Frustrated that details of upcoming episodes were being leaked to the press, Nathan-Turner placed a fictitious episode title, "The Doctor's Wife", on his production board in his office. The title was leaked to the press, but Nathan-Turner forgot to keep track of who had visited his office that week, so he never did find out who the source of the leaks was.

Seems like that could be added to either callback, or trivia.

Confirmed by Word of God, apparently.
