Behind the scenes Edit

The series was created by Matt Groening, who also created Futurama.

The show's first ever full episode, Simpsons Roasting on an Open Fire, premiered in the United States on 17 December 1989, just over a week after the "classic" run of Doctor Who concluded with the third part of Survival.

For one week in 1996, Doctor Who and The Simpsons shared the same network of origin in the United States, when the co-produced TV movie aired.

In the United Kingdom, the BBC held the terrestrial broadcast rights to The Simpsons from 1996 to 2004, where it aired on BBC One and, primarily, on BBC Two. The rights transferred to Channel 4 from 2004 onward.

Over the show's long run, The Simpsons has made several references to Doctor Who and its related universe, and as such is one of the few American-produced series to include such references. Doctor Who has often been mentioned by the Comic Book Guy.

There have been several explicit references to Doctor Who within episodes of The Simpsons in the episodes;

In 1996, writers Gary Russell & Gareth Roberts wrote together the book I Can't Believe It's an Unofficial Simpsons Guide.[1]

The Simpsons, along with Doctor Who and various other franchises, appear together in the 2015 video game LEGO Dimensions.
