I was pretty sure what the title of Let's Kill Hitler was alluding to in the run up to it, and was surprised many many people didn't also expect that specific plotline explaining the title (the rest I didn't predict, but, y'know). It turns out that many many people haven't read the following short story, this is something that probably ought to be rectified.

So, is it happenstance, or is Moffat also a reader of Abyss and Apex webzine? Wikihistory:
International Association of Time Travelers: Members' Forum Subforum: Europe � Twentieth Century � Second World War
The other reference that's a bit less direct that sprung to mind is referenced on the TV Tropes page anyway, but it's still a good little comic: Obersalzberg.

So, happenstance, or had Moffat read that?

Killing Hitler (or rather, not doing it because it makes things even worse) was a time travel cliché long before Wikihistory. It's an awesome story, not least *Because* it plays with a well-known cliché. IT didn't invent the cliché, though.
