I n the 1965 Daleks story The Chase, the crew of the Tardis are shown ‘rocking out’ to a clip of the Fab Four performing Ticket to Ride on Top of the Pops. A traveller from the future remarks that she’s heard of The Beatles, but didn’t realise they sang ‘classical music’, Thanks to a BBC archive purge, this is only surviving footage of the band on Top of the Pops. As related nuggets, Peter Capaldi once played George Harrison in a 1985 NBC TV drama called John and Yoko: a Love Story. John Lennon was played by Mark McGann, the brother of Eighth Doctor Paul McGann. Christopher Eccleston also once played Lennon in the 2010 TV drama Lennon Naked.
