When the Eighth Doctor told the dark-haired version of Sam Jones about the blonde version of her who travelled with him, she thought it was a practical joke like in It's a Wonderful Life. She said her mum cried through it every time it was on television. (PROSE: Unnatural History)
The Tenth Doctor considered it to be his favourite film. He accidentally released the Wire again while looking for his copy of it inside the TARDIS. After recapturing the Wire with the help of Alice Wu, he joined Alice's family as they sat down to watch the movie on television. (PROSE: Loose Wire)
