Well, I'm watching Peter Davison's turn as Dr Who on Australian telly at the moment and I'm really enjoying it. He's adorable and very sweet. Like Pertwee, he adds an emotional layer to his portrayal of the Doctor.

Just finished the Arc of Infinity story and wondered the whole time where Leela was... :p

So you beat creed462 to it. :D

Davison brought vulnerability and fallibility to his character. I always thought his character was short-changed in the writing aspect of his tenure...too many stories were under par, but I really enjoyed his character...and Nyssa and Turlough as well. :D

I've always like the fifth doctor. He had some of my favorite traveling companions and his relationship with them was more a partnership than any of the others. I especially love the Turlough's first episodes, though the Black Guardian could have been better. Honestly, how scary can you be with feathers on your head?

Hehe, I had a big crush on Peter when he was the doctor,:o well it started when he was in All creatures great and small and just continued to the Doctor. :p

I liked his portrayal very youthful and heartfelt. When they did the Five Doctors I thought he was brillant, I thought that whole story was brilliant. Shame we will not see it here during these re-runs. :(

I loved the outfit the Celery sure it's cheesy but it's also fun. He continued with the hat wearing too.

Can someone tell me when he first incounters the Daleks (I haven't missed it have I?) Loved him with the Cybermen. :D

He was kinda cute... one of the few men who could match her in er... stature... :p

Did you know he was the first doctor to have the ? on his costume it was on his collars :D .
He was an ok Doctor but I just found him not as great as say Tom Baker or Sylvester McCoy. There was something missing but I think its just cos I think they portrayed him too youthfull. Turlough was great (Black Guardian Saga was the first set of episodes I saw in a group together after seeing Trial of a Timelord) but my fave companion is Chameleon because he can change appearance and bvoice how you want him to although its a shame he only appeard in 2 eps :( .

Adric, Nyssa, and Tegan. (6 stories)
Nyssa and Tegan. (3 stories)
Nyssa, Tegan, and Turlough. (2 stories)
Tegan and Turlough. (1 story)
Tegan, Turlough, and Kamelion (6 stories, although Kamelion was only seen in 2.)
Turlough and Peri (1 story)

I must admit to having been a bit disappointed with the original Turlough story-arc, with the Black Guardian trying to get Turlough to kill the Doctor. Apart from the time when Turlough tries to smash the Doctor's head with a large rock, it never really was much suspense to it, IMHO. I'd thought I'd really like Turlough in the Black Guardian trilogy, but I actually liked him better in the later stories. He's just okay as a sort of baddie, but as a good guy, he works better, especially in the way he relates to the Doctor.

Mawdryn Undead was the best of the three.

Terminus was pretty depressing. If you need a pick-me-up, don't pick up this episode. Plus Nyssa left and she was the best companion to Peter's Doctor.

Enlightenment was a good concept and had some good scenes but wasn't nearly as good as Mawdryn Undead.

Easter Lily

Yeah, I've never been too fond of Tegan myself... even if we are from the same city. It's that voice I think... somewhat grating...

Sad to hear that Nyssa's leaving... I like the way she's grown throughout the series. I heard that Peter Davison went to bat for her when they were going to drop her earlier on.

Enlightenment was interesting. I liked the concept of the Eternals a lot, though I think some of it could have been done better. The end was a little anti-climatic. Still, I was glad when Turlough was finally rid of the Black Gaurdian. His character really showed after that.

For people to realize that it's Davison, not Davidson. ;)

Seriously, though, I don't know what it is about Doctor Who fandom, but this seems to be a mistake that is made all the time and everywhere. It got to the point where I, a newbie, started to believe that it really should be Davidson, as I kept seeing it written that way.
I just don't understand why this problem comes from. Is there a reason for it, other than simply people copying each others' mistakes? Or is it that in Brit English, maybe you cannot hear the difference between the two names? Or something else entirely? I'm just curious. I've never come across such a persistent mistake in spelling a person's name.

Nothing against you, Sam, mind you! Hey, I love Arc of Infinity, too. Omega is cool, and I adore the scenes on Gallifrey. I'm having a friend over today and tomorrow, and I promised her I'd give her a taste of classic Doctor Who (not like I'm an expert or anything, but she's only seen the 2005 series). I'm thinking of at least showing her Castrovalva (to introduce the Doctor, of course), and then Arc of Infinity, because it's high on the Doctor Angst level (we're Hurt/Comfort addicts) and since she's also Dutch, it'll be fun to watch Amsterdam, how it looked a couple of years before we were born. ;)

OMG! That's one of my pet hates, too, having been a huge Davison fan since his days on All Creatures...
No offence to anyone who's called him Davidson --- it's just kind of obvious to those who've known him for a long time.
As for the question about why people do it, I think it's purely because Davidson's a common name, and Davison isn't. Having said that, his real last name is Moffett, but that's another story altogether! (his daughter is an actress, credited as Georgia Moffett)

Maybe this is a really stupid question, but does him having changed his name have anything to do with the fact that there was a Peter Moffatt, a director on Doctor Who (maybe even around the same time as Peter Davison played the Doctor)?

Not a stupid question! A good one!
He changed his name after joining Equity because another person had the same name. Could have been Peter Moffatt, but the spelling is different... and Moffatt is a director, so it may not have been an issue...
Who knows. Maybe there's another actor out there called Peter Moffett.

I wonder if their bosses concider it an essential item.Considering their outfits, I'd say it was most certainly essential.

In fact, I'd even go as so far to say it was a cosmetic emergency.

If only more military organizations took the time to address the cosmetic needs of their soldiers, war wouldn't be so ugly.

Lust In Space, I believe was a documentary sort of thing about the companions.
BTW, Mark Strickson now lives in Australia! He's married and lives in Queensland, I think. I read somewhere that he and Sarah Sutton are still in contact a fair bit, though she and her family are in the UK.

Finished reading "Empire of Death" last night. My one big complaint is the same as with The Crystal Bucephalus. The authors don't mind giving the Doctor a rough time, knocking him around etc., but the Comfort is non-existent. Hello, you can't just knock him unconscious with a bleeding wound on the head, and the next scene, he's up and about, chatting with someone, and no mention at all is made about him even recovering consciousness or anything. It keeps feeling as if entire pages are missing in these books, pfffft.

Nyssa suffering from PTSD? That seemed a bit far-fetched... On the one hand, losing your homeworld and regularly facing death is somewhat stressful.

On the other hand (and the reason I love her character), she is the most unflinchingly calm and unnaturally rational character in the history of television. I think she was born without adrenal glands.

You're all raising valid points... I haven't actually watched any of the stories involving Nyssa and Tegan before Castrovalva yet. Maybe I should, so it can give me more insight into Nyssa. I know she lost her father and her whole world, but, well, she just always came across as very strong to me. But maybe the PTSD diagnosis isn't that far-fetched, after all... She does show remarkably little reaction to Adric's death. But if we're following that line of thought... the Doctor showed even less reaction/emotion to it, IMHO.

Honestly, it doesn't seem necessary at all to even have such a setting...or least, it doesn't seem appropriate to use such a setting on another Gallifreyan.

I would love to see Enlightenment on DVD... if it isn't already... It's certainly one of the more original 5th Doctor stories.


There were some great costumes in Enlightenment.

Enlightenment would be released as part of the Black Guardian Trilogy (Mawdryn Undead, Terminus, Enlightenment) and that means it would be release Jan 2008 Region 2 at the earliest.
