- [NEW] Meditation - In "The Magician's Apprentice - Prologue" the Doctor told Ohila (from the Sisterhood of Karn) that he was going to meditate on a rock before going off to meet the person summoning him.
- [NEW] The cup - Similar or the same as the one the Sisterhood of Karn gave the Doctor to help his regeneration in "The Night of the Doctor.' That said it's probably just the BBC reusing a prop.

The Time Crash blog was created to help New Who fans understand Classic Who references - and to know if something isn't a reference but a new idea. If there's a reference I missed or a subject that you feel needs more explaining, please comment.
