Doctor Who references in other media

Doctor Who in the comics! American liberal political cartoonist Tom Tomorrow features the Doctor in his latest strip about the presidential contest (thanks to Outpost Gallifrey for featuring this)

Pink Floyd in their 1971 song "One Of These Days" incorporated the rhythm and theme tune of Doctor Who. The KLF (Timelords) in their 1988 song "Doctorin' the Tardis" about the Doctor and Daleks hit the top of the UK singles chart. The band Orbital also reinterpreted the theme tune. YouTube search for the music videos.
