Piano Man Matt

He’s been know to dabble with the guitar, has been on stage with Orbital and wants everyone and their Mastercard British Album Award on board the TARDIS but this time Matt Smith would very much like a piano onboard to tinkle with.

According to The Daily Telegraph Matt would like to show off his musical prowess at some point during the programme:

“I always wanted a piano in the TARDIS but that’s yet to materialise, sadly. I’m by no means a dab hand but I can tinker a little bit.”

Sadly, however, it seems Matt may not get his wish to stop the narrative dead with a quick dabble on ebony and ivory:

“I guess once the TARDIS lands you want the adventure to get started. You don’t want to see the Doctor playing the piano.”

Or do you? Maybe other Doctors have musical skills? We all know Troughton played the Recorder (and The Seventh Doctor could play the spoons- though with slightly less of a fanfare) but what about the others? Could this be the start of a cross dimensional Doctor supergroup? What would each one play? Ponder below…

About the Author


Everyone has a favourite Doctor and mine - just for his honesty, his fairness and his ability to not notice the Master's awful, awful disguises/anagrams (Sir Gilles Estram!?!) - has to be the Fifth Doctor, Peter Davison. The stories didn’t serve him as well as his acting served those stories.

  1. I can see Eccleston as a drummer… Tom Baker on lead guitar… Hartnell playing the triangle.

    Paul McGann has perfect rocker’s length hair, a Les Paul would look good on him. And if you need a song writer look no further than composer of Button Moon, Peter Davison!
