Your views on everything going on in the hectic world of Doctor Who...

Since our last issue was published, we’ve been overwhelmed with responses to our interview with the Fifth Doctor, Peter Davison. We’ve printed here as many as space will allow, reflecting a broad cross-section of your views...

Provocative Peter

PHIL IRWIN EMAIL

Thank you for the wonderful interview with the awesome Peter Davison [DWM 503]. It was great to read Peter’s responses – funny, interesting, insightful, open and honest. I for one know what I’ll be doing on 6 October: purchasing his new autobiography!

I echo Tom’s Letter from the Editor – I was six when Tom Baker fell from the Pharos project’s satellite dish and found ‘the moment had been prepared for’; having watched since 1979 (and not missed an episode since) and collected DWM since the first monthly issue in 1980, my love of the show was clear – but it was cemented and enhanced by the arrival of Peter Davison’s Doctor.

He was fallible, hopeful, energetic and enthusiastic, and from those first moments of Castrovalva to his heroic sacrifice at the end of The Caves of Androzani, he was the perfect hero.

I’ve just finished reading your brilliant interview with Peter Davison in the latest issue and I just wanted to say I loved every word. Those 17 pages were worth the price of the magazine alone, let alone all of the other fantastic content. I got through it in one sitting, and found it one of the most compelling and page-turning interviews I’ve ever had the pleasure to read. I’m sure he’s heard it a million times before, but Peter comes across as a genuine, generous and thoroughly decent chap. I especially liked the fact that – as with your recent interviews with other Doctors – that you didn’t censor or tame the more potentially controversial comments. Not many magazines have that sort of integrity and I sincerely applaud you for it. I really do hope this occasional series of in-depth interviews continues long into the future. Keep up the excellent work!

Intriguing interview with Peter Davison, but he was wrong to say that Tom Baker believed Sylvester McCoy “had only done Doctor Who”. Why, only two issues ago we saw Tom describing him as “a wonderful comedian – oh, marvellous! It’s easy to be generous about this little gnomish fella with a Scots accent.”
