Parallel universes Edit
Beep the Meep travelled to a parallel universe, in which the Doctor's universe existed only as part of a BBC science fiction television series called Doctor Who, on 12 October 1979, and took control of the BBC Television Centre. The Eighth Doctor and his companion Izzy Sinclair defeated Beep with the help of the actor Tom Baker, who infuriated him with his endless rambling.
