Paul McGann Sings Backup for His Companion at Gallifrey One 23

"These backup singer's shoes...They fit perfectly!  Yesssss...."

Last night at the Gallifrey One's Network 23 convention held at the Marriott Los Angeles Airport hotel, the stars of the 1996 Doctor Who TV Movie reunited for a stage performance from actress Daphne Ashbrook, who played the Eighth Doctor's companion Dr. Grace Holloway.  Singing "I Don't Need No Doctor" from her 2010 album Grace Notes, Ashbrook was backed up by three male singers (well, sort of singers) including her TV movie co-stars Eighth Doctor actor Paul McGann and Yee Jee Tso, who played Chang Lee.  Charlie Ross, a Scottish comedian who voiced the role of Lest in the Eighth Doctor audio adventure Memory Lane for Big Finish Productions, rounded out the rather rhythmless backup trio.

Oh, and look...Daphne Ashbrook even has a downloadable MP3 of "I Don't Need No Doctor" for you to buy here on Amazon...

You can check out a video of the performance below, thanks to the kindness of YouTube user Davendea...
