English Jon Folklore: Doctor Who - Folk Songs (35) Folklore: Doctor Who - Folk Songs 22 Nov 09

A daft idea for a project struck me....

Whilst watching season 2 of Doctor Who (David Tennant, nice suit although I still preferred Chris Ecclestone), I noticed there's a 4 second shot of someone massacring the riddle song (I gave my love a cherry etc) - and I started wondering if it would be possible to put a show together based on Whovian folklore...Patrick Troughton's Doctor used to occasionally play recorder, after all!


What I'm after is ANY reference to folksong/folklore, terrestrial or alien, specific to Doctor Who. Trekkies need not apply, ditto Figrin d'Aan and the Modal Nodes....that's another project entirely - Seperate thread please if you want to go down that route!

Tenuous as you like, as long as there's some kind of link to The Doctor!
(And yes, I have thought of "Cruising 'round Yarmouth"...)

Thinking caps on please!

Many thanks,
Jon Loomes
