    • The Doctor: Give people their minds back. So they don't walk into that place like sheep.

      The marching of thousands of pod-controlled Londoners to Battersea echoes the song 'Sheep' by Pink Floyd from their album Animals, where the sheep obediently walk into a valley of steel to be butchered. The album cover features an image of Battersea Power Station, with a pig floating above it just like Lumic's zeppelin.

      Incidentally Pink Floyd is known for incorporating the Doctor Who theme music into live performances of the song 'One of These Days'.
