We are very pleased to be welcoming Peter Davison, the Fifth Doctor, to Hurricane Who: Category Three. Davison is a star of screen, stage and radio best known for his role as the fifth incarnation of the Doctor in Doctor Who and as Tristan Farnon in All Creatures Great and Small. In 1981, Davison signed on to play the Doctor in Doctor Who, succeeding Tom Baker (the Fourth Doctor). The Fifth Doctor encountered many of the Doctor’s best-known adversaries, including the Daleks (in Resurrection of the Daleks) and the Cybermen (in both Earthshock and The Five Doctors).
Davison returned to play the Fifth Doctor in the 1993 multi-doctor charity special Dimensions in Time and in the 1997 video game Destiny of the Doctors (audio only). He continues to reprise the role in a series of audio plays by Big Finish Productions. He returned once again in “Time Crash”, a special episode written by Steven Moffat for Children in Need; in the episode, which aired on 16 November 2007, the Fifth Doctor met the Tenth Doctor, played by David Tennant. In 1993 he presented the video documentary release Doctor Who: Daleks – The Early Years, showcasing surviving episodes of missing stories featuring the Daleks. In 2007 he voiced the Doctor Who video game Destiny of the Doctors.
