Hamilton was a 21st century musical about the life of United States founding father Alexander Hamilton. The Doctor found the songs from the show to be very hummable and had them stuck in their head for a thousand years. Several of their incarnations, including the Second Doctor, the Tenth Doctor and the Eleventh Doctor, saw Hamilton. (COMIC: The Long Con)
Alice asked the Eleventh Doctor to take her to Hamilton, but he found buying tickets to the show "very distressing" as he kept on "bumping into past selves". They decided to visit the real Alexander Hamilton instead. (COMIC: The Long Con)
