SPECIAL GUEST ANNOUNCEMENT:
PETER DAVISON (Doctor Who / All Creatures Great And Small / A Very Peculiar Practice)
PETER DAVISON is an actor of incredible depth and range, demonstrated by his varied and magnetic roles on stage and screen for over fifty years, most famously in the role of The Fifth Doctor in DOCTOR WHO.
Davison first made his appearance on UK screens in the children’s science-fiction adventure serial THE TOMORROW PEOPLE in 1975 and has been working consistantly ever since, with standout roles in ALL CREATURES GREAT AND SMALL, HOLDING THE FORT and SINK OR SWIM, all of which he demonstrated his formidable comic timing and screen presence. However, it was in 1981, when he took on the role of the fifth incarnation of the world’s most famous Timelord, that he truly became a household name.
Davison played The Doctor for four years, the youngest actor to do at that time, throughout some of the characters most famous adventures, including ‘Earthshock’, ‘Terminus’, ‘Enlightenment’, and ‘Resurrection Of The Daleks’. Leaving the role (for fear of being typecast), Davison has gone on to become one the UK’s best character actors, with appearances in CAMPION, AT HOME WITH THE BRAITHWAITES, THE LAST DETECTIVE and LAW AND ORDER: UK.
Davison has always proven to be a fascinating and engaging draw to any convention and we look forward to seeing him at EM-Con Burton in February.
