OK, so, if you remember back in 1.09, "Random Shoes", there was an actual bidder on the Dogon sixth eye that Eugene's worthless friends outbid, and a comment was made about the bidder being a collector of alien artifacts. So in 2.08 "A Day In The Death" (which has narrative similarities to "Random Shoes", anyway, in my opinion) there's Mr. Parker, a collector who they mentioned off-handedly has recently acquired a Dogon eye. Does anyone know if he is definitely the bidder who was mentioned in "Random Shoes"?
I ask because I don't currently have a copy of "Random Shoes", and it would take quite a while for a torrent to download. So I was hoping that maybe the people who've been watching the show as the BBC airs it, would have already had this discussion and would know the answer? I've tried Googling but every article I find just mentions him in connection with ADITD.
Please...help me avoid becoming the kind of obsessive geek who spends 3 hours waiting for an episode to download just so they can verify details like this.
