Saw the first episode of Years and Years written and created by former Doctor Who showrunner Russell T. Davies and this series's idea was one he originally came up for Torchwood: Children of Earth but found no room for it there.

This stars Emma Thompson as Vivienne Rook and Davies used this name before for the ill-fated journalist in Doctor Who: The Sound of Drums.

While Doctor Who is not mentioned by name, Davies did put in references that Doctor Who fans could easily pick up as it had Grandma being told that she did not look a day over 900. 900 was the Doctor's age when Davies was running Doctor Who.

Also the scarf that one of the kids wore looks remarkably like the Tom Baker one.
