Peter Davison SFX Interview

By Mark
A new interview with Peter Davison, the actor who played the 5th Doctor in the classic series of Doctor Who, has recently been published by SFX magazine. The full interview has been posted on the magazine's official website and extracts from it can be found in the latest issue of SFX which is on sale now in all good newsagents at the price of £3.99. You can also view two extracts from the interview below;

What was your reaction when you heard about Matt Smith being cast? Did you think they’d go for someone more well known? Or someone older?
I only ever had one thought on my wish list – get an actor. With that in mind he seems a perfect choice. However, I hope they don't get too dogged about never casting older actors for the role in the future.

Can you see yourself ever going back to Doctor Who again, as you did for “Time Crash”?
I can certainly see myself, but I don't think it will happen.

The full interview can be read online here. Peter Davison played the role of The Doctor for a total of three years. He first played the role in 1982 and then left the show in 1984. Peter is also the father of Georgia Moffett who played Jenny in the sixth episode of Doctor Who series four, The Doctor's Daughter, and you can find more information about him here.
