The Middleman’s farewell is a direct quote of the speech given by The Doctor (played by William Hartnell) to his companion/granddaughter Susan (played by Carole Ann Ford) in the 1964 Doctor Who serial “The Dalek Invasion of Earth.” The serial was written by Terry Nation, thus providing both a “Doctor Who” reference—and the implication that The Middleman and The Doctor not only inhabit the same universe, but may have actually met— as well as a final homage to “Blake’s 7.”
