[Editor’s note: The following contains spoilers for Doctor Who, Season 1 Episode 2, “The Devil’s Chord.”]

The Physician has met loads of well-known figures throughout his adventures on Physician Who, from Queen Elizabeth I to Rosa Parks to H.G. Wells. So, in response to govt producer/showrunner Russell T Davies, “it’s wonderful that The Physician hasn’t met The Beatles earlier than, particularly since they each got here into existence in 1963.”

By that, Davies signifies that Physician Who first premiered on the BBC in November 1963, whereas The Beatles recorded their first album in February of that yr. And that’s the purpose in house and time which the fifteenth Physician (Ncuti Gatwa) and his new companion Ruby Sunday (Millie Gibson) go to in “The Satan’s Chord,” streaming now on Disney+.

“That script studying was particular for certain,” Millie Gibson tells myallmovies. “It was simply ranges above something I’ve ever learn earlier than. The factor that gave me goosebumps, once I learn it, was the stage instructions for the tip: ‘And the TARDIS doorways go ‘buh-boo.’”

The preliminary inspiration for “The Satan’s Chord” got here from a pal of Davies, who stated that if he had a TARDIS, he’d need to see The Beatles file their first album. Not a mind-blowing thought, besides that stated pal is 23 years outdated. “The truth that he stated that as an adolescent made me suppose, ‘Oh, that’s fascinating,’” Davies says. “If I’d stated it, I believe, yeah, that’s what a 61-year-old says. However that somebody so younger was desirous about The Beatles made me sit up.”

And as quickly as Davies began fascinated with The Beatles, his years of expertise as a tv producer led him immediately to a narrative thought. “I knew The Beatles’ music is means too costly, even with a beautiful Disney finances. So I believed, proper, you couldn’t ever use any of their music — lo and behold, you created the plot in that second. It was immediately there. I used to be like, ‘Oh, that’s good. You go to observe the Beatles, they usually’re singing the incorrect factor, time’s gone incorrect, and instantly you’re in the midst of a Physician Who story.’ In order that was nice.”

In “The Satan’s Chord,” Ruby tells The Physician that she needs to go to the long-lasting band in 1963. After they arrive at Abbey Highway Studios, although, they uncover that the band (that includes Chris Mason as John Lennon and George Caple as Paul McCartney) has misplaced their mojo — in truth, the idea of music has almost died out, due to the supernatural interference of a brand new villain named Maestro.
