Mickey referred to Jack as Jumpin' Jack Flash.
DWF posted Jumpin' Jack Flash as the subtitle to his Aliens of London (which this ep is a sequel to) review thread.
Hmm, just a coincidence DW?
"Jumpin' Jack Flash" is a well-known cultural reference, both as an old British legend (Springheel Jack) and a Rolling Stones song presumably named after the legend. So it's no surprise that it would show up in more than one place. I believe DWF explained that he was alluding to the line from the Stones song about "It's a gas, gas, gas," which has nothing to do with Capt. Harkness. So yes, coincidence.
Come to think of it I heard the same sound fx last week too.
What the deal RTD, can't pony over a few quid to the fx guys for new sounds?
Oh, I think it's cool to hear those vintage sound FX getting new life.
You're kidding. People thought this was filler?? Oh, that's sad. Just shows how many people are only watching for the big 'splosions and spectacle. Fiction is about characters most of all -- if it weren't for them, we'd have no reason to watch. And this episode was all about the characters. It was anything but filler.
