Added DiffLines:
** A villager opens to door of a portable lavatory to find it full of water, which washes out a drowned body. Once the flood subsides, he enters the lavatory.. Later in the show we see ''lots'' of bodies, and people still using the loo.

* CelebrityParadox: Mick [=McNamara=] claims that an episode of Tom Baker-era ''Series/DoctorWho'' was filmed at the Stump Hole caverns. So why does Mick, and approximately one third of the town, look exactly like that guy who played Dr. Lazarus in "[[Recap/DoctorWhoNSS3E6TheLazarusExperiment The Lazarus Experiment]]" and wrote the episode "[[Recap/DoctorWhoNSS2E7TheIdiotsLantern The Idiot's Lantern]]"? And why does another third of the town so greatly resemble the guy who played Strackman Lux in "[[Recap/DoctorWhoNSS4E8SilenceInTheLibrary Silence in the Library]]" and "[[Recap/DoctorWhoNSS4E9ForestOfTheDead Forest of the Dead]]?" And why [[spoiler: does Dougal Siepp so greatly resemble the Ninth Doctor?]]
