We’ve already found out that David Tennant, the 10th Doctor, and Billie Piper, a former companion, would be returning for the 50th anniversary episode of Doctor Who and now it looks like they’ll be adding another former Doctor to the list of returnees. Though not outright confirming he’ll be in the episode, Peter Davison has confirmed that he will be involved in the Doctor Who 50th anniversary celebrations.
Peter Davison played the fifth incarnation of the Doctor from 1981 to 1984. Digital Spy reports that while speaking to BANG Showbiz, Davison had this to say about his appearance: “I’m making an appearance somewhere over that period of time but I can’t reveal in what. I can’t reveal anything specific about it. I’m not allowed to. It is a big year for the show and we’re all doing our bit for it. Trust me.”
Davison also spoke about how he believed that Doctor Who will be forced to come to an end at some point because people will get tired of it.
"There will get to a point where people get a bit tired of Doctor Who. I don’t know, maybe it will need a little rest. I’d love to see it carry on but you can never tell.”
Being a former Doctor himself he also spoke about the upcoming 12th Doctor incarnation in Peter Capaldi and how he thinks he will be a great choice.
"He’s a fantastic actor and he has that sort of sense of humor. He has an edge to him as well and I think it’s nice to have a mature Doctor. I grew up with mature Doctors so I think it’s an excellent choice."
You will be able to check out Tennant and Matt Smith (and possibly Davison) in the 50th anniversary special episode on November 23!
