Dr. Who Sings! He Dances! (Maybe)

Tennant Eyes Dr Who Musical

Doctor Who star David Tennant is keen for the cult TV show to be turned into a musical – because he loves “a song and a dance.”

The Scottish actor is adamant the sci-fi programme would easily translate to the stage, but would prefer to keep a musical version on TV screens as it would be difficult to find the time for a long-running live production.

He says, “Doctor Who: The Musical has been mentioned. I would be up for it. I love a song and a dance. The thing about a musical is you have to commit for a year and a half and it’s eight times a week.”

Tennant was recently forced to pull out of his run in a London production of Shakespeare’s Hamlet due to a back injury.

This is just a quickie, but I had to post about this. Three of my favorite things in the world are Dr. Who, David Tennant, and musicals….but together? If it’s done right, it could be great, something along the line of the supreme coolness that was the Buffy musical. If we could just get Joss Whedon on board – he is a WhoFan, and there was talk of him directing/writing an episode….

I’m just not sure the world is ready for a conga line of dancing Ood. On the other hand, there is this to prepare us:
