Cinderella was a fairy tale.
A Lapino, a species that fed on emotion, crashed on a planet. When the TARDIS landed on the planet, it was going to kill Vicki or Steven Taylor to generate enough emotion to power a rescue message. The First Doctor convinced it that there were other options, so they put on a dramatic presentation of Cinderella to 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)
