Peter Davison has just been confirmed as a special guest for Florida Supercon 2012! Peter Davison is a star of screen, stage and radio best known for his role as the fifth incarnation of the Doctor in Doctor Who and as Tristan Farnon in All Creatures Great and Small. In 1981, Davison signed on to play the Doctor in Doctor Who, succeeding Tom Baker (the Fourth Doctor). The Fifth Doctor encountered many of the Doctor’s best-known adversaries, including the Daleks (in Resurrection of the Daleks) and the Cybermen (in both Earthshock and The Five Doctors). He returned to the role in the 2007 special “Time Crash”, where the Fifth Doctor met the Tenth Doctor (David Tennant).
