The problem with most pop culture references are that they have a shelf life of about 15 minutes...about how long said person got to hold their spot on the top of the fame food chain.

^This. Unless it's something like naming a droid THX-1138, I'm against it.

Other than references to other Star Wars properties (especially KOTOR), yeah, I'd rather not see any.

As far as Doctor Who references, weren't the weird Chevin Conglomerate phone booth transporter thingies (which seem to have stuck around even though the event is over) close enough for you?

Easter Egg-type Star Wars references (like the Darth and group of Bounty Hunters on the Ziost Shadow bridge), yes. References to real-world people or events, no thank you. It's sort of immersion breaking, and doesn't really fit the Star Wars atmosphere.

Also, I really hate Doctor Who.

Actually, there is multiple in this game already:
Just to point out a few...

Also more recently..
The Hologram during phase 1 of the Puzzle fight in TFB is named "Master Control" Well since we are in a computer during that fight you can safely assume that he is a program, thus named "Master Control" (Program) The main villian in the original Tron movie (not legacy) was also a computer program named "Master Control Program"

They're in this game, you just got to look around.
