Musical Who

Certain parties seem to think that it is a done deal to get David Tennant on stage and singing as Doctor Who.

The basics of it – Doctor Who star with slight vocal ability teams up with a former companion (Billie Piper, although Kylie would be good) in order to… well sing a bit, I guess – aren’t such a bad idea, although the whole idea isn’t exactly a great one either.

Apparently David Tennant has said that he will only star in Doctor Who: The Musical (that’s what it says here) if Billie Piper stars alongside him.  Of the idea, Tennant has said previously:

“Doctor Who the musical has been mentioned and I’d be up for it as I love a song and dance.”

It is believed that the show would take place later this year, although at the moment there are few firm plans.  A so-called theatre insider reckons Doctor Who: The Musical would bring the house down.

“Rose and the Doctor are television’s dream team and brought in massive ratings.

“Viewers know there is an on-screen chemistry between David and Billie, but that extends to off-screen as well as they are great mates.  David loves working with Billie as they have such a laugh and Billie thinks the same.

“So when David said he’d do it with the provision Billie was his leading lady, how could she refuse?”

Of course, it’s hardly leaving the role behind, is it?
