Why Lost had a Sonic Fence

This is from Doctor Who: The Face of Evil.  The Doctor and Leela just escape the invisible phantom creatures and Leela takes off running with the Doctor in pursuit.

Leela stops running and the following conversation takes place:

Leela: Stop, we’re safe now. We can rest. The creatures won’t cross the boundry.

Doctor: How can you be sure?

Leela: Well they never have.

Doctor: They never cross the boundary. You know something … I’m sure those creatures don’t stay on their side of the boundary out of a sense of fair play. There must be a fence of some kind.

Leela: Fence?

Doctor: Yes a fence.

The Doctor searches around and finds a rock on top of some vegetation to uncover a technological device.

Doctor: Got it. A low intensity sonic disrupter set at a 180 degree spread. Simple but effective.

Leela: Does that keep away the phantoms?

Doctor: Yes, it gives them a nasty headache if they get to close. Probably set up along the whole boundary.

So what has all this have to do with Lost? Remember when Sayid, Locke, Kate and Rousseau capture Mikhail? They come to a point where they find huge pylons.

Mikhail tells them it extends around the entire compound but Sayid doesn’t believe him.  Mikhail tells him to check the electrical map they are following.

Sayid: It appears he is telling the truth.

There comes a point where Locke grabs Mikhail and pushes him to the other side of the pylons. He starts foaming at the mouth, blood spurts from his ears and he falls to the ground appearing to be dead.

Kate and Sayid argue with Locke about doing what he did when the following conversation takes place:

Locke: Pardon me for not knowing they had a sonic weapon fence.

Sayid: It was like he suffered a cerebral hemorrhage.

Now I’m saying if you can’t see this was a direct rip off from Doctor Who you simply have your head buried in the sand and you don't want to see the truth!

After reading this do you believe that Lost was a remake?  Please leave me your feedback.
