Little Tich was an entertainer who performed in the Victorian era music hall circuit. The Fourth Doctor had hoped to see him when he visited London in 1889 in the company of Leela. (TV: The Talons of Weng-Chiang; COMIC: The Time Machination)
When Inspector Chardalot lectured Toby the Sapient Pig about the latter's belief that Earth was once populated entirely by others like himself, at one point he remarked, 'Little Tich was a pig!'. (AUDIO: Year of the Pig)
