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.

So, there’s been a reference to each Doctor’s era in chronological order since The Rings of Akhaten. If this holds true, there should be a mention of Six’s in Nightmare in Silver, and Seven’s in the finale…
Sample the fifth in a new series of Doctor Who stories. Written by Patrick Ness, author of the Chaos Walking series and A Monster Calls, the story focuses on the fifth Doctor. In 1945, a strange new craze for Truth Tellers is sweeping the kids of small-town America. The Doctor and Nyssa soon discover that the actual truth behind the Truth Tellers is far more sinister than anyone could have imagined…

Lovely interview with Fifth Doctor Peter Davison on taking the role, what he thinks of Doctor Who now, and who came up with the celery.
Update: link fixed.
Doctor Who: Kinda
Well, fairly complete anyway. You can’t blame the writers of Doctor Who for seeking inspiration from the moon from time to time. Frankly, when the entire universe, now and always, is your playpen for making up dramas, you’re going to occasionally cast about you for inspiration, seizing upon anything you can see and starting from there. We’re just lucky no one has seriously pitched an alien race that looks like a laptop on a desk with a big empty white page on its screen, although it’s bound to happen sooner or later.
So, here is a reasonably concise list of the times the Doctor has gone to visit the moon, or referred to the moon, or being involved in a thing that is influenced heavily by the moon. I say reasonably because a) this only applies to TV stories and b) I might’ve missed one, or two.
Let’s see, shall we?
