From TARDIS Index File, the free Doctor Who reference.

Sir Charles Spencer Chaplin (1889-1977), almost universally known as Charlie Chaplin, was an English actor, writer, composer and film director who became one of the towering figures of the early decades of Earth cinema in the 20th century. After years toiling in the vaudeville circuit in Britain, Chaplin accepted an offer of a film contract in Hollywood in 1914, and after a false start playing a villain, he introduced his most iconic character, the "Little Tramp" in a short film entitled Kid Auto Races at Venice. Within a couple of years he was the world's top film star, a position he held for many years thereafter. Such was his power in Hollywood that he continued to make silent (or near-silent) films well into the 1930s, long after everyone else had switched to talkies. Chaplin's film career continued well into the 1960s.

Donna Noble was a fan of Chaplin's and after her conversion to half-human/half-Time Lord suggested she and the Doctor visit the actor. Moments later, however, she experienced the start of a potentially fatal mental short circuit that forced the Doctor to erase her memories of him. (DW: Journey's End)
