Behind the scenes Edit
- The crossover video game LEGO Dimensions, which is not considered a valid source on this wiki, sees the main characters travel both to a world based on the 1939 film adaptation of The Wizard of Oz, and to the Doctor Who Universe. The Wizard of Oz antagonist, the Wicked Witch of the West, is recruited by the game's main antagonist and makes a few other minor appearances later in the game. In another installment of the LEGO franchise, The Lego Batman Movie, versions of both the Wicked Witch and the Daleks were among the interdimensional villains recruited by the Joker to wreak havoc on Gotham City.
- DWA 47 humourously presented an image a Doctor Who-themed, The Wizard of Oz, featuring Donna Noble as Dorothy, K9 as Toto, an animated scarecrow as Scarecrow, the Catkind Thomas Kincade Brannigan as the Cowardly Lion, and a Cyberman as Tin Man.
