Did You Know?
Literally, the whole family sits down to watch Doctor Who
(2005): mum and dad, granddad, the two kids... Mum's fancying David Tennant
, dad's thinking the spaceships are really cool, the granddad is saying it was better when it was William Hartnell
.... and they're all thinking it's aimed at them.
Like David Tennant
, he is a huge fan of Peter Davison
's Fifth Doctor. Moffat was one of the principal interviewees for the Davison-era Doctor Who
(1963) documentary Come in Number Five
(2011). He also stated in an interview in 1995 that he thought Davison was the best actor to have played the Doctor.
