Day 5 – Bradley’s Basement’s Advent Calendar 2015


Hello everyone! 🙂

It’s Day 5 of ‘Bradley’s Basement’s Advent Calendar 2015.

Today I’m going to talk about one of my favourite Doctors in ‘Doctor Who’. Can you guess who it is? I hope the date today helps to give it away?

Peter Davison

That’s right! It’s Peter Davison who played the Fifth Doctor from 1981 to 84. I first time I saw Peter Davison was in ‘All Creatures Great and Small’ in 2003. It was later on in 2006 when I saw Peter as the Doctor in ‘Earthshock’ and I now regard him now as one of my favourite Doctors in ‘Doctor Who’.

I’ve enjoyed seeing Peter as the Doctor both in his TV era and in the Big Finish audios which he is currently appearing in. My favourite TV stories are ‘Black Orchid’; ‘Earthshock’ and ‘The Five Doctors’. My favourite Big Finish stories are ‘Circular Time’ and ‘The Demons of Red Lodge and Other Stories’.

I’ve had the pleasure of meeting Peter Davison twice at conventions. I’m amazed I’ve actually met the person who played the Tristan from ‘All Creatures’ and the Fifth Doctor from ‘Doctor Who’. I’ve now had photos with Peter (and Sarah Sutton) from a previous convention in Eastleigh in July, 2015.

To find out more on what I like about the Fifth Doctor era, please check out my article called ‘What do I like about the Fifth Doctor era?’ I’ve also recently posted my CD review on ‘The Demons of Red Lodge and Other Stories’ with Peter and Sarah. I hope to post more reviews from this era soon.

Peter Davison will always be one of my favourite Doctors, as he predated the young Doctors in the new series. I’m looking forward to the 2016 Big Finish trilogy with Peter’s Doctor; Sarah’s Nyssa and Janet Fielding as Tegan in ‘The Waters of Amsterdam’; ‘Aquitaine’ and ‘The Peterloo Massacre’.

Thanks for reading.

Bye for now.

Tim. 🙂

    I think Davisons first season of Doctor Who is one of the shows best Four,To Doomsday, Kinda, The Visitation, Black Orchid & Earthshock are all excellent stories.

    Yes! Season 19 is my favourite ‘Doctor Who’ season with the Fifth Doctor; Tegan; Nyssa and Adric. I enjoyed ‘The Fifth Doctor Box Set’ from Big Finish and I can’t wait to hear more stories with that team. ‘The Visitation’; ‘Black Orchid’ and ‘Earthshock’ are my favourite stories from that season. Thanks. Tim. 🙂
