Peter Davison in Castrovalva, his debut adventure in Doctor Who

Peter R. Moffett – this is his real name – was born on April 13, 1951 in Streatham, a district of London, England.

After various jobs Peter Davison studied at the Central School of Speech and Drama and began his acting career taking the stage name with which he’s universally known to avoid being confused with the actor and director Peter Moffatt, with whom he worked during his career.

After various jobs in theater Peter Davison made ​​his debut in the TV series “The Tomorrow People” along with actress Sandra Dickinson, whom he later married and with whom he had his daughter Georgia in 1984.

In the following years Peter Davison worked in other television series including an adaptation of the Douglas Adams novel “The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy” but fame came with “All Creatures Great and Small”.

In 1982 Peter Davison made ​​his debut in the role for which he’s best known, the Fifth Doctor in the famous series “Doctor Who” with the difficult task of replacing Tom Baker. At the time Davison was the youngest actor to have played the Doctor and only last year this record was surpassed by Matt Smith.

Peter Davison played the Doctor until 1984, preferring to leave the series to avoid an over-identification with the character. Inevitably however his name kept connected to “Doctor Who”, so much that he played the Doctor again over the years, especially in several audio adventures. On TV Davison played the Doctor again in the 2007 special “Time Crash” along with the Tenth Doctor, played by David Tennant.

Over the years Peter Davison has starred in several films and television series but in one way or another “Doctor Who” kept on affecting his life. Even in his next work experience in the British version of the series “Law and Order” Peter Davison will work together to Freema Agyeman, another actress who worked in “Doctor Who”.

Peter Davison is a political supporter of the Labour Party and last year he appeared in a election broadcast with David Tennant and Sean Pertwee, son of the Third Doctor Jon Pertwee.

Peter Davison’s daughter, Georgia Moffett, has also become an actress and she participated in an episode of “Doctor Who” titled “The Doctor’s Daughter”. David Tennant and Georgia became an item and a few days ago they gave Peter Davison a granddaughter.

Given the influence of “Doctor Who” in Peter Davison’s life I can only wish him it will be as long as a Time Lord’s!
