Out of curiosity, why the need for disambiguation? --khaosworks (talkcontribs) 22:58, 26 October 2005 (UTC)

Oh, I was just uncomfortable with the only difference between it and the more mainstream use being a capital "L", and I wanted it to be consistent with the other serials that needed disambiging.--Sean|Black 21:53, 5 November 2005 (UTC)

Revisions to Plot[edit]

Having recently watched the "Ghost Light" DVD and its extra features, I have edited the "Plot" section to correct some common misconceptions and sources of confusion about the story. Light's spaceship was not sitting under Gabriel Chase ever since the time of the Neanderthals; it left Earth after collecting Nimrod and only returned a few years before the events of the story. Control is the "control subject" of Light's experiment (something I never understood until several years after first seeing the story), while Josiah is the "survey agent", who leaves the ship and evolves into whatever the dominant lifeform is on the planet Light is investigating. At the end of the story Josiah becomes the new Control creature, while Control is the new survey agent (and Redvers and Nimrod will presumably take Light's place as the leaders of the expedition).

Douglas Adams' quote[edit]

I restored the paragraph about the hhgttg quote. If the paragrph is to long, then edit it, but do not cut a useful reference.193.48.172.104 (talk) 21:38, 14 February 2011 (UTC)

Plot Synopsis[edit]

I have removed the suggestion that the synopsis is too verbose due to the fact that a certain percentage of viewers seem to struggle to understand this story, which is in fact really cohesive and well thought out. It's a key story for understanding the 7th Doc - Ace relationship so I think the synopsis is justified. --Dr zoidberg590 (talk) 07:17, 4 October 2017 (UTC)

All that can be addressed in a Production section and/or a Writing section and/or an Analysis section (properly citing reliable sources, of course). The Plot summary section should be short and terse regardless. DonQuixote (talk) 12:10, 4 October 2017 (UTC)
