LGBTQIA Favourite Sci Fi Celebrated at HMV


For many people who grew up in the 1980’s, their incarnation of “Doctor Who” was Peter Davison, who took over as the fifth version of the Doctor from Tom Baker in 1982. With blond hair and boyish features, he was the youngest person to play the role at that time. Hard to believe then that Peter Davson this year turns seventy. Media website Digital Spy says that to celebrate, high street retailer HMV has a sale on “Doctor Who” DVDs featuring the adventures of Davison’s Fifth incarnation of the Time Lord. On sale are classics such as The Black Guardian Trilogy, featuring the late great Valentine Dyall, and Earthshock in which a companion is actually killed off in a surprisingly emotional denoument. And finally, the ninety minute adventure The Five Doctors, which reunites the different incarnations to mark twenty years of the programme. If you’re not touched by Richard Hurndall’s portrayal of the First Doctor meeting his successors then you are as cold hearted as the emotionless Cybermen who stalk the moorlands of Gallifrey in this 1983 classic.
