Elvis Aron Presley, often known simply as Elvis and also marketed as "the King of Rock 'n' Roll" or "the King", [source needed] was an American singer and actor.
In 1956, he performed on the The Ed Sullivan Show in New York. The Tenth Doctor and Rose Tyler attempted to see it, but mistakenly landed in London just before the coronation of Queen Elizabeth II in 1953. (TV: The Idiot's Lantern)
Impact and influences Edit
During a visit to 1400 BC, Peri convinced sculptors repairing the Great Sphinx in Memphis, Egypt to give it the face of Elvis, the only "king from Memphis" she knew. This anachronism was corrected centuries later when one of Napoleon's troops shot off the Sphinx's nose. (AUDIO: The Eye of the Scorpion)
The creators of EarthWorld believed Elvis was literally a king of Earth. Samantha Jones had shown Fitz Kreiner what would become of Elvis due to his eating habits. Fitz preferred to remember Elvis as he had been. When Fitz insulted Venna Durwell's grasp of 1960s history, he joked that she'd given Elvis green Wellington boots instead of blue suede shoes. (PROSE: EarthWorld)
Other references Edit
A life-size painting of Elvis adorned a wall in the interior diner facade of the TARDIS piloted by Clara Oswald and Ashildr and where Clara and the Twelfth Doctor met for possibly the last time after he deleted most of his memories of her. (TV: Hell Bent')
