In Duty Calls, Amberley cites The Abominable Chitin by Arten Burrar as a source on the war against Tyranids. Is it just me, or does his name sound just a bit like Attenborough? I'm trying to decide if the resemblance works better in a non-rhotic accent or if it's a bit too much of a stretch to include here.

I'd call it plausible, given the subject matter of the book in-universe and the fact that Attenborough is a naturalist.

Having no knowledge of any Ciaphas Cain stuff, when I read that guy's name my mind first went to Attenborough so... it does seem reasonable. But that name does apply to a few possible things, so keep that in mind.

O.o That was fast. Thanks for the input. I think David is the most famous Attenborough, so I'll just go ahead and put it in.

Yeah, that's definitely supposed to be Attenborough (Are-TEN Burr-Arr is close enough to "Ah-TEN-Burr-AH").
