Dr Who

Up to date as of January 31, 2010

From TARDIS Index File, the free Doctor Who reference.

The Beatles were a music group from Liverpool during the 1960s and 1970s, considered one of if not the most influential musical congregations of the second half of the 20th century.

Contents

20th century

During the early 1960s, the Doctor and Donna Noble went to see them. A starstruck Donna had the band sign a CD which had songs on it which they had yet to record. (DWM: The Time of My Life)

In 1965, the Beatles performed "Ticket to Ride" at Riverside Studios. The Doctor, Barbara Wright, Ian Chesterton and Vicki observed the performance on the Time-Space Visualiser. (DW: The Chase)

In 1969, Ace prevented Huitzilin from killing the Beatles on the roof of the Apple building. (NA: The Left-Handed Hummingbird) The Doctor and Martha Jones attempted, unsuccessfully, to attend the same concert. (IDW: Black Death White Life) At some point during the concert, time distortion from the Rift Manipulator transported the Beatles to the roof of the same building in the 21st century. (TW: End of Days)

In 1970, Paul left the Beatles. They acquired two new members, Billy and Klaus. (PDA: The Devil Goblins from Neptune)

Although not explicitly identified as such, these were presumably Billy Preston and Klaus Voormann.

Mark David Chapman, manipulated by Huizilpin, shot ex-Beatle John Lennon outside his hotel on December 8, 1980. (NA: The Left-Handed Hummingbird)

21st century and after

In 2008, as a result of disturbances in time caused by inexpert use of the Rift Manipulator, the Beatles were spotted on the roof of Abbey Road studio. (TW: End of Days)

By the 25th century, a museum dedicated to them existed in their home town of Liverpool. Vicki knew of them but had not realized that they played what she referred to as considered classical music. (DW: The Chase)

Alternative timelines

Fitz Kreiner saw the Beatles perform at Live Aid in an alternative 1985 in which they never broke up in 1970. (Fitz collected alternate timeline Beatles records during his travels with the Doctor.) (EDA: The Gallifrey Chronicles)

Behind the Scenes

Appearance in The Chase

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.

Ironically, given the loss of many Doctor Who episodes 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 from 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 currently known to exist.

Reportedly the original idea was for either the Beatles themselves (actors playing the Beatles) to appear as old men in the future in The Chase. Had this happened it would have created an anachronism given the young deaths of John Lennon and George Harrison.

The Beatles continuing after 1970

The reference in PDA: The Devil Goblins from Neptune suggesting the Beatles continued as a group with new members after 1970 suggests that story might take place in an alternate timeline or reality, or that in the Whoniverse the history of the Beatles progressed differently than in the real world. This is also supported by the reference to an alternate-timeline version of the Beatles in EDA: The Gallifrey Chronicles that never broke up and were still performing in 1985.

Use of songs in Doctor Who stories

As mentioned above, The Evil of the Daleks and Remembrance of the Daleks originally had the Beatles songs "Paperback Writer" and "Do You Want to Know A Secret?", retrospectively, as background music. Rights issues, however, caused complications for the BBC. The audio release of the former story edited out the song, while the video release of Remembrance replaced the original with a cover version. Since "Ticket to Ride" appears so prominently in The Chase, the appearance of the song in that story accounts in part for the delay in releasing that story onto DVD.

Maxwell Edison, a recurring character and occasional companion of various incarnations of the Doctor in the Doctor Who Magazine comic strip, is named after the lead character in "Maxwell's Silver Hammer".

The Beatles were a human musical group in the 20th century. Their works were among those Dr. Gillian Taylor used to communicate with Harpo, a cetacean member of her oceanographic study team on Pacifica. (TOS short story: "The Hero of My Own Life").

Roberta Lincoln was also a fan of The Beatles, and was pleased in 2269 to see the crew of Enterprise sporting what she called "Beatles-hair" -- though she thought Pavel Chekov looked more like Davy Jones of The Monkees. (TOS novel Assignment: Eternity)

The Beatles were a British rock music group from Liverpool, England held in very high regard for both their artistic achievements and their huge commercial success, and have amassed an enormous worldwide fanbase that continues to exist to this day. Comprised of John Lennon, Paul McCartney, George Harrison and Ringo Starr, the group shattered many sales records and charted more than fifty top 40 hit singles. They disbanded in 1970.

Some of the former Beatles were originally slated as guests for different episodes of The Muppet Show, but due to budget and schedule conflicts, these episodes were never produced. McCartney's band, Wings, was considered for an episode. Jerry Nelson said in a 1999 interview, "They tried their best to get the Beatles, Paul was willing to do it, but we had to hire the whole band… When he was with Wings. It was too big time. We just didn’t have the money. I think George would have done it, but they kept trying to negotiate with Paul... Ringo probably would have too. If they had asked me, I would have said, 'Hey! Get them! Don’t dicker... Get the ones who are ready to commit.'"

Sir Paul McCartney appeared on stage with Kermit the Frog to celebrate Golden Jubilee for Queen Elizabeth II.

Ringo Starr appeared in a February 2008 Disney Xtreme Digital video with Kermit the Frog and Pepe the King Prawn during the Muppets' coverage of the Grammy Awards ceremony.

Beatles producer George Martin appeared on The Ghost of Faffner Hall episode, "Sounds Become Music".
