Star Wars references in Dr Who (SPOILERS)

Did anyone notice that last week's Doctor Who episode made a couple of what I thought to be pretty obvious Star Wars references.

  1. One character lost a hand and when we next saw him, he had had a prosthetic hand applied that looked very similar to Luke's black gloved hand when his hand got chopped off.??
  2. Is it me or did the lazer firing Spitfires make you think of the slightly funky, decrepit X-Wings? And with just one of them left at the end it was up to him to fly around the large ship, dodging the mounted cannon fire, taking the ship down. I was half expecting him to have to fly along a trench and drop in a bomb.??

    Also the Broadsword to Danny Boy radio call is from Where Eagles Dare

    Plus the reference to 633 squadron which was the inspiration for the trench run in Star Wras.
