Matt Smith, the latest incarnation of The Doctor, name checks Houdini in the Season 5 opener of the popular BBC series, Doctor Who ("The Vampires of Venice").

The scene finds the new Doctor cornered by five female vampires, and in his stream of conciseness way of speaking, he observes:

"You're like Houdini, only five slightly scary girls. And he was shorter. Will be shorter."

Here's hoping Houdini and The Doctor will meet up in the flesh some day.
