Dropdown causes javascript parse error

I have added the following code to a new page type in an otherwise stable CMS project:

function getCMSFields() {
$fields = parent::getCMSFields();
new DropdownField(
'Please choose a member',
Dataobject::get("Member")->toDropdownMap("ID", "Surname")
return $fields;

I have also tried adding the dropdown to the Main tab. The db field referred to is defined as

public static $db = array(
'memberID' => 'int'

Unfortunately when I now try to Save or Save and Publish i land up with a Javascript Parse Error. I have tried running in dev mode and don't get any errors or warnings before taht point.

Should I report this as a bug or am I doing something dumb?
