Matt Meets The Beatles?

Did the Eleventh Doctor meet The Beatles? Or was it just their roadie?

We’ve all suspected, once or twice, that Matt Smith can travel in time. And thanks to Jess – @HolyFrell – we now have photographic proof.

The Beatles are (arguably – and at least for the purpose of this article!) upstaged by the Doctor himself, Matt Smith, in this snapshot of the glory days of music. Whoever it really is in the picture certainly bears an uncanny resemblance to the Time Lord.

@HolyFrell alerted Arthur Darvill, Karen Gillan, Mark Gatiss and Steven Moffat on Twitter; (“Yesterday and Today” – well, on 24th, actually) the latter responded:!/steven_moffat/status/194705123048570880

(Edit: as Steven Moffat quit Twitter, this response has been lost.)

Of course, the Doctor was probably responding to John, Paul, George and Ringo’s cries for “Help!” (Sorry.)

(It’s probably the late Neil Aspinall, roadie and all-round Beatles confidant – Ed)

    Of course he met them who other than eleven could have written I am the Walrus?

    It’s as we’ve all suspected. Doctor Who isn’t actually a TV series, but a pioneering fly on the wall reality series that is actually a cunning plan to disguise the fact that it is all real by masquerading as a science fiction franchise.

    I just hope they tie it in to The Chase.
