Ah, the mighty Peter Davison. The Fifth Doctor, All Creatures Great And Small, Campion, and living in a house with Freddy from Rainbow are just some of the topics we chatted to him about, ahead of the publication of his terrific autobiography, Is There Life Outside The Box.
We’ve got a fair bit to get through, so without further ado….
I got a sense you thoroughly enjoyed writing this book, once you were over some initial research-y hurdles. Would that be fair?
Yeah, that’s fair. It was kind of a journey, really. A reassembling. I’ve had these memories, and it was really a chance to put them down on paper and order them. Everything fragments as you get older, and things come out, »

Looking for something to offset all the downbeat news around at the moment? Then how about starting here...
Last week, in Geeks Vs Loneliness, we asked you for stories of human goodness, positivity and general niceness that have happened in the last week or two. Given that the newspapers would have us believe that all life is awful right now, we wanted to use Geeks Vs Loneliness this week to shine a light on the many good things that happen week in week out, that nobody really seems to talk about.
You did not disappoint. Here are 19 random, small, wonderful little things that have happened in the last week or two. Keep adding your own in the comments too please…

The superb Line Of Duty changes your mind utterly about its characters from week to week. Exhausting, but brilliant...
This review contains spoilers.
Line Of Duty series three is proving as tricky to pin down as AC-12’s interviewees. Three episodes in and do we even know who the lead character is? Danny Waldron first looked set to take the role before that rug was pulled away from under us. Then it seemed as though Rod, Jane and Freddie (I think those are their names?) were our focus. Not so.
Episode three has left us with a much more tantalising prospect: this is ‘Dot’ Cottan’s story, the tale of the Caddy.
Craig Parkinson’s furrowed brow was the star of this week’s instalment. It got a close-up each time the investigation moved a step closer to the truth he’s trying to steer his team »
