BBC Three risque animal puppet sitcom Mongrels oddly references JG Ballard’s Concrete Island

I’m not sure if this is totally accidental, I’m guessing it is, but a recent episode of Mongrels features Nelson and Vince marooned on a traffic island between roads. Which is exactly he plot of JG Ballard’s novel Concrete Island, written in 1973. I’ve read it by the way, it’s very good.
