The Fifth(ish) Doctor Peter Davison Autobiography

‘Peter? It’s John Nathan Turner here. How would you like to be the next Doctor Who…’

After receiving this life-changing phone call in March 1980, actor Peter Davison would go on play the Doctor in the hit BBC series from 1981–84, fighting Daleks, Cybermen and the Master. Now, for the first time, Davison reveals what it was really like to take on this role of a lifetime.

Davison also talks exclusively about this childhood and personal life, as well as describing his work on shows such as All Creatures Great and Small, The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy, Miranda, Sherlock and Law and Order UK.
