Personal Quote:

[on Peter Davison in Doctor Who (1963)] Peter is an ideal actor for the role. He has the right combination of light humour, drama and realism, is very popular with children, and has a large following with feminine viewers. See more »


He was openly gay and lived with Gary Downie, who worked with Nathan-Turner as a production manager on Doctor Who (1963) in the 1980s. Downie himself died in 2006. See more »
