Where There’s You There’s Me

Peter DavisonForever the home of quirky questions, io9.com asked this week – What If Doctor Who Had Beaten Buffy To Doing A Musical Episode?

While the obvious answer – that 1966’s The Gunfighters featured musical narration (‘The Ballad of the Last Chance Saloon’) throughout sung by Lynda Baron (Open All Hours) – is evidently overlooked, anyone wanting a bit of St Valentine’s Day schmaltz should cast their eye over the spine tingling performance of  1930s hit “Where There’s You There’s Me” by Fifth Doctor Peter Davison and his then-wife Sandra Dickinson for a BBC pantomime of Cinderella, which could easily have been taken from a musical Doctor Who episode.

The clip is on the io9.com website and comes from the DVD release of Enlightenment. You probably shouldn’t share this with anyone if you want to keep them as friends…
