    Just came accross this website. It mentions using unused movie ideas and a dog fight in the final episode. Not sure how common knowledge this is? First I have heard of it.

    It's already been discussed in the other threads and it can't be viewed as spoilers (at least not the kind this site was worried about) when the show's creator is putting it out there. I do hope that the reusing of movie ideas is simply because they were too awesome never to be used and doesn't represent the dirth of creativity that seemed to blight the tail end of both series 7 and 8.

    It was in Doug's interview with Broadcast magazine, IIRC. And yes, it's been discussed lots over the past week!

    It's been public domain for a while now, it seems like this interview has been someone on a time release (most likely at Doug Naylor's request) to come out closer to the time it airs and give just enough info to spark interest and speculation without REALLY giving too much away.

    Other information in the full interview suggests that it is only due to budget restrictions that we are getting classic dwarf. Episodes had to be re written

    However, it wouldn’t be an adventure if it all ran smoothly. A tightening of the budget during pre-production meant that two weeks of OB shooting had to be dropped, leading to an extensive reworking of scripts. Naylor says it was a happy accident.
