Pronounced "ska-lya." A little curated space for my interests. Currently 90% reblogs and 10% pointless text posts; fannish content includes Spider-Man (616), Doctor Who (new, bit of Big Finish/EDAs/classic), and various other things.
I try to tag for common triggers, but don't hesitate to ask if you need something added.
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.

Eight’s TARDIS can display all sorts of things on the ceiling of its control room, and if you still don’t think it’s the best TARDIS ever,
you’re wrongI kindly disagree with your opinion.
I’m pretty sure one of the first things he did once Charley was on board was to show her how the Earth looked like from space. [/headcanon]
I’m not sure how I feel about the way ”Into the Dalek” handled the “moral dimension” of soldiering
or how I feel about the episode in general or how the episode feels about itself, but I do know I ship it.
"Charlie and I are members of the Tourist faith. We worship C’rizz here. And we begin each day with a ritual cup of tea. Happy?"
