Dr. Who Cast Tells Us Bedtime Stories

The 10th Doctor Tells a Bedtime Story

Nerd Approved has collected some videos of Doctor Who cast members reading bedtime stories for the BBC’s preschool channel, CBeebies.

Cast members include David Tennant, Christopher Eccleston, Alex Kingston, John Simm, Freema Agyeman and John Barrowman.

A quick search of YouTube turns up more Dr. Who bedtime stories, but they have put together a nice collection.

I must admit that I’m not familiar with the books they are reading. Perhaps it’s been too long since my boys were little, or maybe it’s just that they are books published and popular in England.

But the videos and the concept is wonderful and I wish we had something like it here. Instead we have The Disney Channel.

Here’s one of David’s bedtime stories not include din the Nerd Approved posting.
