This iconic recreation of the Abbey Road photoshoot replaces The Beatles with Doctor Who, his companion and a couple of Daleks.

The original Abbey Road photoshoot took place in August of 1969. British police held traffic on Abbey Road for all of ten minutes to allow the iconic shoot to take place. The resulting image -- now etched indelibly on the face of pop culture history -- adorned the cover of Abbey Road, The Beatles' 11th studio album. The album cover contained no other information. Both the band and the location were so famous that titles were unnecessary.

Now, the cast of Doctor Who, including Daleks -- the aliens that are the Doctor's nemeses and figure in the original first season of the series -- has their own version of the Abbey Road photoshoot, perhaps suggesting that the prominence of the show in British and world culture is on equal footing with that of the legendary band.
