Well that was BRILLIANT!
The now lost Second Doctor first story The Power of the Daleks was set on Vulcan.
Oh, good catch there. I completely forgot about that.

BTW, I did get a Zoe vibe from Oswin. Glad I'm not the only one.
I didn't think of Zoe but I can definitely see the similarities.

BTW, not being immersed in Who fandom, this has probably been discussed ad infinitum already, but I did chuckle at the name of the pretty new companion: IIRC from history class, Oswin translates to "friend/ally of god" and Oswald to "having the power of god". Calling a Doctor's companion "God's friend" is quite a cheeky little wink.
Oh, that's a cool insight. Thanks for sharing that.
