Peter Davison and David Tennant as the Fifth and Tenth Doctors

Davison Has Copy Of 50th Script: Why?

Now here’s something interesting – Peter Davison has admitted on TV that he has a copy of the 50th anniversary script. The question that must be asked to this, of course, is “why?”

Peter Davison and David Tennant as the Fifth and Tenth Doctors

After all, as far as we’re aware the Fifth Doctor actor isn’t involved in The Day of the Doctor; indeed, no classic Doctors are believed to be connected to the 75 minute special.

Chatting briefly on the ITV morning show Daybreak this week, Davison was asked about 50th anniversary. This is where it gets even more interesting:

I’ve heard lots of rumours, none of which I’m allowed to tell you anything about. I’m privy to them actually.

It goes further than that, however. He’s not only privy to them – he’s got his own copy of the script!

I have got a copy of the script which has got my name embossed across it. So it’s top secret, but there’s other stuff, lots of other things that are going on that people should keep their eye open for around the 50th anniversary special!

Let’s just appreciate that for a moment: “I have got a copy of the script which has got my name embossed across it.” This is his own copy, printed specifically for Peter Davison; not a knock-off Christopher Eccleston reject or one left around the family home by son-in-law David Tennant, but a copy that presumably features dialogue for the Fifth Doctor.

So what do you think of that, Kasterborites?
