Stanley Kubrick was influenced by Doctor Who
, particularly The Daleks' Master-Plan
, when he made 2001: A Space Odyssey
. What if Kubrick and Arthur C. Clarke had made The Wheel In Space
in 1968 instead?
The Silver Carrier! The space station! The Tycho Excavation! Cybermats! The weird shit with the hotel room! The Star Child! It’s all here!
I refuse to live in a world where this isn't canon.
