This information appears as a postscript to my previous entry, but I think it bears repeating:

In a comment to my post on torch_wood, eandh99 pointed out a striking similarity between Torchwood: Children of Earth and the 1979 Quartermass serial.

I don’t know what to make of this. Coincidence? Clever hommage to another Verity Lambert production? Rip-off?

Quatermass is sort of an institution in British telly, isn't it (she asked ignorantly)? It could be one of those things that creeps into everything like Star Wars and such do over here.

That's likely; heck, David Tennant appeared in a live TV remake of the first Quartermass story right before he was tapped to be the Tenth Doctor.
