Cinderella was a fairy tale.

When the First Doctor, Vicki and Steven Taylor landed on an unnamed planet, they came across a Lapino who threatened to kill one of them to generate enough emotion to power a rescue message. The Doctor convinced the Lapino that there were other options, so they put on a dramatic presentation of Cinderella to create more positive emotions on which to feed. (PROSE: Planet of the Bunnoids)

The Eighth Doctor once saw a Chelonian production of Cinderella. He said it had to be seen to be believed. (PROSE: The Scarlet Empress)

In 2014, a pantomime version of Cinderella was performed for a six-week run at the Palace Theatre. (PROSE: Behind You)

A member of Zygon High Command disguised itself as a schoolgirl wearing a Cinderella school bag, with the Twelfth Doctor addressing the Zygon as such. (TV: The Zygon Invasion)

Trix MacMillan told the Princes in the Tower a version of Cinderella which had two Cinderellas and two princes. (PROSE: Halflife)

Behind the scenes Edit

Lily James, who portrayed Cinderella in Disney's 2015 live-action adaptation of the story, has been in a relationship with Eleventh Doctor actor Matt Smith since 2014. Incidentally, it was the Eleventh Doctor who appeared opposite Cinderella in the Time Lord Fairy Tales short story, Cinderella and the Magic Box.

The aforementioned film also featured Derek Jacobi.
