From a 1995 episode of The Simpsons, during the week of November 23, the anniversary of the first broadcast episode of Doctor Who.

Another episode of The Simpsons later that season contained another Who reference. In the episode where Krusty the Clown goes bankrupt, there is a scene where the owner of the comic book store waddles by with a wheelbarrow full of tacos and says "this should provide adequite sustenance for the Doctor Who marathon."

Most recently, a third Doctor Who reference appeared on The Simpsons: in the episode where Homer fights the show's version of Mike Tyson (broadcast November 10, 1996, approximately two weeks before Doctor Who's thirty-third anniversary) there is a scene where Homer drags his family into a "gizmos and gadgets" store which has several display tables that all look like the TARDIS console.

I wonder who the Doctor Who fan is?



Back to the TARDIS Databanks



The TARDIS Databanks recommends these easy, Plain English computer basics courses.
The lessons are recorded by someone who's been a die-hard Doctor Who fan since the days when computers were the size of refrigerators and had giant spinning tape wheels (like the Master's TARDIS in The Time Monster for example :).

He likes to sneak lots of Doctor Who references into his easy video basic computer training courses -- little easter eggs to give Doctor Who fans a smile while his lessons make you more skilled and confident with your computer.

Both Microsoft Windows basics course and Apple Mac basics course are available.
Try them and see what you think.
