SFX, a popular science fiction and fantasy magazine, recently interviewed Peter Davison who played the fifth incarnation of The Doctor in the early 1980s. In the interview, Peter talks about his thoughts on the casting of Matt Smith as The Eleventh Doctor and if he would return to Doctor Who again. You can read two extracts from the interview below:
What was your reaction when you heard about Matt Smith being cast? Did you think they’d go for someone more well known? Or someone older?
I only ever had one thought on my wish list – get an actor. With that inmind he seems a perfect choice. However, I hope they don't get too dogged about never casting older in the future.
Can you see yourself ever going back to Doctor Who again, as you did for Time Crash?
I can certainly see myself, but I don't think it will happen.
