Doctor Who References

Some situations that reminded me of Doctor Who on last night's TV:

Fringe's case of the week involved a woman with an accelerated pregnancy due to paranormal interference (see Torchwood's "Something Borrowed" and Star Trek: The Next Generation's "The Child").  Also Dr. Bishop and his son Peter discovered a car with the scientist's files in it, including the aforementioned hand in a jar.

On House Dr. Cuddy remarked "We know who she is" when told about a prominent feminist leader whose assistant became ill, like Harriet Jones, Former Prime Minister ("We know who you are").  This became a recurring phrase on Doctor Who, when she would introduce herself and even the alien Sycorax were familiar with her identity.
