I was watching Daleks in Manhattan/Evolution of the Daleks recently and thought how similar Laszlo and Lazarus are. Is there a possible link between Richard Lazurus and Laszlo. I do not mean to say they are related but is it possibly another story arc with Laszlo being saved from death and having a longer life and Richard Lazarus having a longer life too. Obviously, Richard Lazarus died but had the process worked he would have been made younger. Also, the Master mentions [Lazarus Laboratories|LazLabs]] and Richard Lazarus in The Sound of Drums and uses a peice of LazLabs scientific equipment to age the Doctor 100 years, then 900 years. I think this could be a possible minor story arc (obviously not as big or important as the Saxon arc). Has any got any ideas on this please. Botswana41 11:50, July 21, 2010 (UTC)
Three-part finale? Edit
Is this true. I can't really tell. Utopia finished with an enormous cliff-hanger to the next episode, but so did The Almost People and Turn Left. Three-parter or not? BroadcastCorp. 16:10, July 21, 2011 (UTC)
- The last three episodes were written by the same person. They are a three-parter. --Bold Clone 16:51, July 21, 2011 (UTC)
Why so short? Edit
I noticed this series had fewer episodes than the preceding and succeeding series.
2007 (this series' year) saw a big TV strike, shortening seasons for many TV shows. However, Dr. Who is a British TV show, and I thought the strike only hit the United States. Am I missing something here? PSH aka Kimera 757 (talk) contribs) 19:50, July 24, 2011 (UTC)
No strike effects - and it wasn't any shorter. It was exactly the same length as the other new series (13 episodes + 1 Christmas Special) but the way the three part finale worked meant that there were only nine 'stories' rather than the usual ten; but the series was still the same length with the same number of episodesBaziel 15:32, July 28, 2011 (UTC)
