Red Dwarf Easter Egg - Doctor Who Reference in Red Dwarf Cargo Bay
This egg appears in one of the initial seasons of Red Dwarf, quite possibly the first one in which Starbig appears. I cannot pinpoint the episode since my collection is unfortunately very incomplete.
In the cargo bay of the Red Dwarf (where Starbug is taking off in one scene) a tiny blue british police box can be seen nestled upon one of the platforms in the background. It is only on the screen for a second, but it's definitely an homage to Doctor Who (it's the Tardis!), one of the first shows to successfully (if only sporadically) combine comedic elements with true science fiction.
(quick side note - the Tardis appears in an episode of Star Trek: The Next Generation on a piece of background furniture as well)
