Doctor Who + The Beatles

The Beatles were to have filmed an in-studio cameo for The Chase in which they played elderly versions of themselves, circa 1996, playing at the Festival of Ghana. Their manager, Brian Epstein, however, forbade this. Had this happened, it would have created an anachronism, given the early death of John Lennon.

Ironically, given the loss of many Doctor Who episodes due to the BBC’s policy of erasing old episodes, the clip of a live performance of the Beatles singing “Ticket to Ride” only survives because of its use in the first episode of The Chase. It originated in a 1965 Top of the Pops episodes which no longer exists in the BBC Archives. Because the production team for the story sourced the clips from this episode, this makes this the only known surviving footage of that performance known to exist.

Oh my god. Peter Capaldi name-drops the Chumbleys.

This isn’t the age of spies. This is not even the age of heroes. This is the age of miracles… and there’s nothing more horrifying than miracles.

On series eight’s slightly different tone, pace and longer scenes:

Steven Moffat: To different degrees, that carries on throughout the series, in different ways. But that’s not an accident, that’s a very explicitly clear idea. I was starting to think there was a danger we were getting faster every year and soon the episodes would be over in four minutes [laughter]. Not that I didn’t like that, I loved the way we did it, but every idea has its end and there has to be a new one.

Smell that air. Grass and lemonade … and a little bit of mint. A hint of mint, must be the 1920s.

We’re watching The Unicorn and the Wasp right now on bbcamerica as part of Doctor Who Takeover Week. Come watch with us!

My eyebrows, which I’ve never taken much notice of in my life before, Steven’s decided are the most amazing comic devices. Now in the scripts, as a stage direction, instead of saying, “The Doctor looks peeved” or “The Doctor looks annoyed,” they just write, “Eyebrows.” I’m supposed to do something with my eyebrows.
