Based upon the Doctor Who episode of the same name, the song inspired numerous bands to attack this newly-created genre, Time Lord Rock, or Trock, shortened by the same convention as the Harry Potter fandom's Wrock.However, it is noteworthy to mention that it was not Charlie, but his friend and fellow You Tuber Alex Day who invented the genre. Since it's conception, Time Lord Rock has been mentioned in Doctor Who Magazine and the band Charlie is in, Chameleon Circuit, has released their second album Still Got Legs, after the success of their first epononymous album. Another friend, Jazza John Mc Millan-Clenaghan (known as 'Rhymingwithoranges' on You Tube) promised to shave his head if they hit 4,000 and did so about a month later with the help from Kristina Horner (known as 'Italktosnakes' and Monday on the collab-channel 'fiveawesomegirls' on You Tube).
While he said he found hatemail amusing, one You Tuber known as Blade376 made a video which was angry at him for being featured after only a couple of months on You Tube, causing Charlie to remove all of his videos.
The amount is impressive, if to take into consideration that Alex Day has millions of reviews.
He first became interested in making content on You Tube when he and his friend Sam decided to make and upload a short film entitled "The Legend of Zelda: The Kazoo of Time". He still had the account so he decided he "might as well do something with it" so he started uploading short vlogs.
In 2008, he video blogged on another You Tube account along with four other You Tube personalities (fallofautumdistro, nerimon, toddly00 and johnnydurham19) The name given to this collaboration by Mc Donnell was "fiveawesomeguys", a spin-off of the American "fiveawesomegirls".
On 6 August 2008, Charlie showcased his musical talent with a song titled "Blink".
