Originally, much of the action around the speakeasies which proliferated during Prohibition, including having Laszlo involved with the mob. However, Russell T. Davies wanted to avoid the jazz music which would be predominant in such an environment, and so Helen Raynor came up with the Broadway and Hooverville settings instead. See more »


One can see the Empire State Building from Liberty Island (where the Statue is). But the view seen by the Doctor and Martha in this episode looks like they are across from Midtown Manhattan rather than the Financial District as it should be. See more »

Foreman: I'm telling you, the men won't stand for it! I mean are you out of your mind? I've got 500 men working seven days a week, they're flat out, and you want us to go *faster*?
Mr. Diagoras: The new masters demand it.
Foreman: But we're on schedule! What's the problem? Another month and we'll be done!

Less oinking, please

I really can't pass the three previous and very positive user comments by in silence. I completely disagree. This was a dull, cliché-ridden and predictable episode which I'm not likely to ever watch again. I really don't see how anybody can find the pig slaves either funny, scary or in any other way interesting. They were toe-cringingly awful.

After three great episodes, season three is finally showing that it can't maintain that high standard, which is too bad. And to make it worse, it makes a double episode out of this dog. Gah.

And the Daleks AGAIN?! A good thing should not be over-used! Get it into yer skulls, Who-people!

5 out of 10.
