In the season finale episode, "The Frame-Up Job" Gina Bellman and Mark Sheppard briefly pose as Agents Tennant and Smith. Obviously a nod to actors David Tennant and Matt Smith.

Cool, I haven't yet watched either episode from last night - can't wait to hear the reference! cheers

There were more references to that in some of the earlier seasons. Like one time Hardison told, I think it was nate, that "I was just about to watch Doctor Who" when nate told him to do something. There was also another big reference when in one scene they used several of the classic doctor's names as fake identities, like Tom baker and Sylvestor McCoy. Somebody obviously likes doctor who over there.

I didn't know about the first reference that you listed, but do remember the second one. In fact, someone here had posted a YouTube clip of it.

I really like Leverage, so it's especially cool that they tip their hats to one of my favorite shows. Very Happy

I want to say that Hardison said "Bow ties are cool" in one of the episodes in the last season.

The funny thing is there are actually a couple Star Trek actors who work on the show in front of and behind the camera, like Jonathan Frakes, Brent Spiner, and Jeri Ryan. But I guess they like Doctor Who too.

I've been FFing the show more than usual but the last two eppies (which were pretty good especially the first one) did catch the reference right away. They've been sparse of late in the show.
