A Doctor, his companion and two Daleks walked onto Abbey Road …
“Doctor Who’s” Peter Capaldi (aka Doctor Who himself), his co-star Jenna Coleman (Clara) and the long-running show’s iconic villains recreated The Beatles’ famous 1969 “Abbey Road” album cover. The photo is part of the BBC series’ promotional efforts for Saturday night’s season 9 premiere.
Coleman, who recently confirmed that she’s leaving the series to work on the ITV show “Victoria,” in which she stars as young Queen Victoria, even went barefoot, paying homage to Paul McCartney.
“I have left the Tardis. It’s happened. I’ve filmed my last scenes,” Coleman told BBC radio host Nick Grimshaw on Friday.
The premiere, titled “The Magician’s Apprentice,” finds the Doctor haunted by past deeds and old enemies “when the skies of Earth are frozen by a mysterious alien force.”
