Star Wars was a popular science fiction film series from Earth.
The Sixth Doctor and Frobisher attended the American premiere of the first film at Mann's Chinese Theatre in May 1977. In the 1990s, the series' creator, George Lucas, reedited the first three films and added special effects, a move that was controversial with some fans, though the Doctor claimed to prefer the Special Editions. He also thought actor Peter Cushing (who played Grand Moff Tarkin in the first film, A New Hope) looked familiar, and seemed to remember meeting his granddaughter. (PROSE: Mission: Impractical)
When the Doctor told Flip Jackson that Transmission was an artificial planetoid, she compared it to the Death Star. The Doctor expressed the hope that it was "not quite so ominous." (AUDIO: The Fourth Wall)

Clyde called Luke his "young padawan", when stating he had much to learn about humour. (TV: Prisoner of the Judoon) Clyde said that he did a school history project on the Battle of Waterloo because his teacher had not allowed him to do one on Battle of Hoth. (TV: The Last Sontaran)
The Eleventh Doctor once compared himself to "the little green one out of Star Wars" and proceeded to play with an imaginary lightsaber, but incorrectly named him Gandalf. (TV: Meanwhile in the TARDIS)

Behind the scenes Edit
- The space suit costumes worn by Jamie and Zoe in TV: The Wheel in Space was later re-used in the original trilogy (most noticeably by Bossk the Bounty Hunter. Similar costumes (which were re-purposed High-Altitude Windak Pressure Suits that had been used by the RAF during the 1960s) had previously appeared in TV: The Tenth Planet.
- The Doctor's recognition of Peter Cushing in PROSE: Mission: Impractical was an in-joke referencing the fact that Cushing had played the film version of Dr. Who in the 1960s.
- Star Wars villain Darth Vader was played by Minotaur actor Dave Prowse.
- Steven Moffat has been nicknamed "the Moff" and "the Grand Moff" by fans as well as by Russell T Davies after he took over as executive producer for Doctor Who in 2010. "Moff"/"Grand Moff" is a high military rank in the Star Wars universe.
- Russell T Davies received an offer from George Lucas to write a story for his television spinoff series Star Wars: The Clone Wars but Davies turned it down for lack of time as well as a lack of desire to write for a sci-fi franchise he didn't build. The occasion was discussed by Davies in Chapter 4 of Doctor Who: The Writer's Tale, the chapter subtitle of which begins "In which George Lucas is snubbed..."
- A Dalek made a cameo appearance in a (non-canon) Star Wars comic strip, Fett Club. Skaro, Delta Magna and Cygnus are also mentioned in the fan-produced unofficial Star Wars reference guide Book of Imperial Shuttle Plans: Cygnus Spaceworks.
- Darth Vader appeared in a Top Gear sketch where he was pitted against other opponents including a Dalek, a Cyberman and Colin Baker as the Sixth Doctor to see who the fastest "Master of the Universe" was around the Top Gear track. Vader was seen helping the Cyberman put its helmet on, and he was later exterminated when the Dalek became angry that it couldn't fit in the car.
- David Tennant voiced the droid character Huyang in the Star Wars: The Clone Wars episodes "A Test of Strength" and "A Necessary Bond" — and became the only vocal performer to win Emmy for their work on that show.
