I've written, and hope to self-publish, a novel. In passing, one of the characters refers to the fact that Doctor Who is back and notes that there will be a Christmas special episode. I'm not using the character - just naming him once, as part of a reference to the (real life) fact of his return to British TV. The reference appears in a humorous context and is a one-off. Could my use of the phrase "Doctor Who" in this context constitute copyright infringement? Any advice would be much appreciated. I think it's fair game but would like a second opinion!
