Doctor Who's 5th Doctor, Peter Davison

He had many starring television roles in popular series like All Creatures Great and Small and Mixed Blessings. He seemed to have a fondness for science fiction, acting in Hitchhiker's Guide To The Galaxy and The Tomorrow People, and then hit the sci-fi fans' ultimate dream role, "the Doctor" on BBC's Doctor Who! He was the 5th Doctor from 1980 to 1984 and has returned as "the Doctor" in many seasons following.
