In November 2001, Blair went to York and visited several local businesses and tourist attractions. (AUDIO: Project: Twilight)

In 2006, Harriet Jones joked that she wasn't one of "the babes". (TV: World War Three)

Behind the scenes[]

  • Jocrassa Fel-Fotch Passameer-Day Slitheen's claim that massive weapons of destruction could be launched on Earth in "45 seconds" (TV: World War Three) parodies Blair's claim that Iraq could launch weapons of mass destruction within 45 minutes. (Rose Tyler believes it will work, saying it did "last time".)
  • On DVD commentary, producer Phil Collinson said that Aliens of London had intended to show a Blair look-a-like as the Prime Minister's corpse. When the resemblance proved disappointing, they decided to avoid showing the body clearly. Other hints and jabs at Blair remain, but the show avoids saying outright that he's the Prime Minister: the 2005 general election had not occurred during filming, and Rose and the Doctor are unaware who won so the show can avoid being in error.
  • He has been played by Michael Sheen in several films.
