Bosnia was a country in Europe that had been part of former Yugoslavia. In the late 20th century it became torn by internecine conflict. Eve Waugh believed that Great Britain was capable of becoming like this country even without an alien invasion. (PROSE: The Dying Days) It was the country from which original vampire legends came, despite the popular belief that they came from Romania.
Behind the scenes Edit
- Conversation in The Dying Days shifts from Yugoslavia to Bosnia without explicitly stating that the two are connected. References don't even make it clear that it is a country not a city. Although later compared to Britain, Alistair Gordon Lethbridge-Stewart compares Bosnia to the city of Belfast and Ianto Jones' list of countries also includes the city of Tokyo.
- The Tenth Doctor refers to a man who assassinated an Austrian archduke, starting World War I, as a Serbian. (TV: The Family of Blood) It might be more accurate to say that Gavrilo Princip was a Bosnian Serb, Serbs being an ethnic group in Bosnia.
