Fourth Doctor Costume in "The Big Bang Theory"


The most recent episode of the US sitcom, The Big Bang Theory, featured one of its characters dressed as The Fourth Doctor. Wearing Tom Baker's iconic outfit in The Justice League Recombination was actor Kevin Sussman (who plays comic book store owner Stuart). In the past, the show has featured a Dalek in the background.

There was also an episode where Sheldon was complaining because someone had delayed him and made him miss some of Doctor Who, which he watches every saturday.

"I'll watch the last 24 minutes of Doctor Who, although at this point it's more like Doctor Why Bother." -Sheldon Cooper

I previous episodes Sheldon has worn a t-shirt with a large Seal of Rassilon on it, and in a different episode Sheldon mentioned classic episodes of Doctor Who as being part of his morning routine. Sorry I don't remember which episodes.

I'm glad you noticed this too. I posted the same thing on Combom's blog as well. ( http://lifetheuniverseandcombom.blogspot.com/2010/12/doctor-who-makes-surprise-cameo-on.html )

Thanks for also supporting "The Big Bang Theory", Blogtor!

Well I don't like the big bang theory (it's just one of those particular types of US sitcoms I find excruciatingly annoying rather than funny) but I like those Who references. Nice.

Not to burst anyones bubble, however Sheldon has never worn a seal of rassilon shirt. his shirts are available to buy and that one isn't listed...also I own every season and have seen all his shirts. However I am a huge Doctor Who fan and was thrilled at his mention of watching it and the Dalek Sec in the background on their bookcase. :)

One. I also saw the shirt but can't remember it being sheldon or Leonard two. It's a movie Dalek not Dalek sec three. I knew about the others but nobodys mentioned who-con when sheldons like to penny "who-con your out."
