'Doctor Who': The Beatles' 'Abbey Road' recreated by Peter Capaldi, Jenna Coleman

Posted on


Two iconic British staples collided on Saturday morning: Peter Capaldi (a.k.a. Doctor Who), his co-star Jenna Coleman (Clara), and a couple of Daleks recreated The Beatles’ Abbey Road album cover at the famous street crossing.

The photograph was taken to help kick off season 9 of the long-running BBC series. Capaldi & co. return to the small screen Saturday night on BBC America, and the network teases his appearance will be like none we might expect.

The BBC’s description of the first episode, titled “The Magician’s Apprentice,” reads:

Where is the Doctor? When the skies of Earth are frozen by a mysterious alien force, Clara needs her friend. But where is the Doctor, and what is he hiding from? As past deeds come back to haunt him, old enemies will come face-to-face, and for the Doctor and Clara survival seems impossible…

Watch the trailer for Doctor Who season 9 below.
