Happy Birthday, Peter

Davison, that is. 🙂

Peter Davison, who celebrates his 64th birthday today, is currently appearing in London’s West End in the revival of the Musical Gypsy.

Davison plays Herbie in the show, which is based upon the memoirs of the stripper Gypsy Rose Lee, and which is currently previewing at London’s Savoy Theatre. The cast is led by BAFTA award winning actress Imelda Staunton who was asked to take on the role of Rose by the play’s lyricist Stephen Sondheim, after he saw Staunton’s performance as Mrs Lovett in the 2012 production of Sweeney Todd.

The show’s cast album, featuring Davison, is released on 27th April.

Davison will take time off from the show to host Doctor Who Symphonic Spectacular’s UK tour this May.

Peter is one of my favorite Doctors, and one of my favorite people. Peter has a wicked sense of humor, especially about himself, as evidenced by The Five(ish) Doctors but also his little vignettes that he created for The Gallifrey One Conventions.

Though Tom Baker was my first doctor, and I loved the show before I saw any other Doctors, when I got to see Peter’s that was it for me at the time.

I love the guy, and his Doctor.
