DOCTOR WHO Revisited: PETER DAVISON - May 26 BBC AMERICA

2013 is DOCTOR WHO’s 50th Anniversary. Each month, BBC AMERICA takes the TARDIS back in time with Brand New Specials on all eleven Doctors. This month, it’s Fifth Doctor PETER DAVISON!

Take an in-depth look at the fifth incarnation of the truly timeless Time Lord, played by the youngest actor in the part until current Doctor Matt Smith debuted in 2010. With exclusive interviews with lead writer and executive producer STEVEN MOFFAT, Tenth Doctor DAVID TENNANT, Season Six guest star HUGH BONNEVILLE (Downton Abbey), Fifth Doctor companions SARAH SUTTON and MARK STRICKSON, and DAVISON himself, examining one of the most dramatic departures from the series to date and discussing the return of the two popular foes, the emotionless Cybermen and the ever-deceitful Master.

“I was probably the first Doctor who’d actually watched the series when he was growing up.”

Then, in the story “Earthshock,” a conference to unite military powers against the Cybermen is about to take place, but the Cybermen plan to interrupt it and destroy the Earth. The Doctor must race against time to stop his enemies at any cost…

Don’t miss the Premiere of the fifth DOCTOR WHO: THE DOCTORS REVISITED Special, plus the classic Fifth Doctor story “Earthshock” Sunday May 26 at 8/7c only on BBC America.

Just making sure to remind all my followers who have BBCA that he will be on your screens this coming Sunday. :)

Ten minutes to the premiere!
