In Moore's The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen, there are more than a few references to the Doctor Who universe:
- The Black Dossier: The Doctor's TARDIS appears on a map of The Blazing World.
- Century: 1969: The Second Doctor appears (non-speaking) for one panel.
- Century: 2009: Captain Jack Harkness and the First and Eleventh Doctors make cameos. Also, M mentions "UNIT and our Cardiff enterprise" at one instant.
