Are the Futurekind from the Tenth Doctor episode "Utopia" the same as the Haemovore from the Seventh Doctor episode "The Curse of Fenric?"

The Curse of Fenric

In the serial, the ancient evil force Fenric uses the vampiric Haemovores, the descendants of humanity from the future, to attack a World War II naval base in England.


As they explore the planet Malcassairo, the Doctor, Jack, and the Doctor's companion Martha encounter Padra, a lone human running for his life from cannibalistic humanoids called the Futurekind.

They are both descendants of humanity

    There are lots of descendants of humanity portrayed in Doctor Who. After they evacuated the Earth in the 29th century, we went all over the place.

    Given the intended audience of the show, if they had intended the Futurekind to be the same as the Haemovores, they would have used the same name for them. On the other hand, if they did that they might have had to pay royalties to David Briggs, writer of The Curse of Fenric, like they do to (the estate of) Terry Nation whenever they use the Daleks.
