Okay, I was waching the E-Space Trilogy and The Doctor asks if he can have some of the "pickles" they crew are eating. He is given some round objects that look like small onions... are they pickled onions? What do Brits mean when they say, "pickles"? Obviously, if I say it here at home, everyone thinks "pickled cucumber."

It's my understanding that "pickle" is a much more general term for anything pickled over there.

Why is beyond me, as the pickled cucumber is the only true and delicious pickle.

Oddly, shortly after posting this I was reading (currently a Tim Willocks novel) and the character in the book was eating pickled eggs. That would meet the description of what Tom's eating in the show fairly well and be more sensible than an onion for staving off hunger.
