The Beacon - S1-E26

Plot hole: Barrows introduces himself as "Dr. Dennis Barrows," and Teddy asks, "What's a doctor?" As the isolated villagers have never heard of doctors, Teddy would have no way to know that "Doctor" was a title/profession and not simply part of Barrows' name. He should have asked, "What kind of a name is Doctor?"

Trivia

From the title (honoring writer Charles Beaumont) on, David Gerrold loaded this script with homages to sf writers and films. Every character and nearly every line makes such a reference, with people and things named after Ray Bradbury, Richard Matheson and characters from Invasion of the Body Snatchers, Them!, Forbidden Planet, This Island Earth and many others.
