David Tennant And The Cast of Doctor Who Tell Amazing Bedtime Stories

Things to Do With Your Kids

There once was a show called Doctor Who. It ran for a verrrrry long time and had some really, really talented actors. One day, they told us bedtime stories. The end.

Ok, not the end. Doctor Who cast members David Tennant, Alex Kingston, Christopher Eccleston, John Simm, Freema Agyeman and John Barrowman have all taken part in the BBC tradition that is CBeebies. It’s a channel, one of the only free on the BBC, for preschoolers where the final hour of every day is dedicated to bedtime. And at the end of that hour a celebrity reads a bedtime story (actually they read 5 but spread them out over a week). It’s a pretty cool concept and we’re lucky enough that most of them are available on YouTube. I found that Tennant and Agyeman were the best storytellers of the bunch but Simm actually used voices for the characters and that was the last thing I expected from The Master. Go watch the rest and have sweet dreams!
