Peter Davison Talks Doctor Who Symphonic Spectacular [VIDEO]

Fifth Doctor, Peter Davison is currently down under hosting the Doctor Who Symphonic Spectacular and squeezing in the odd interview. Australian morning talk show, Studio 10, invited Davidson for an interview with their Executive Producer, Rob McKnight, who is such an avid fan that he steps in to do the interview himself.

Among many other questions in the eight minute segment, Davison was asked about the quality of the writing in his era compared to now…

I just don’t think the writers took it seriously enough… I am very envious of the fact that it’s now run by people who grew up watching Doctor Who – fans. And by and large the stories are written by people who have a passion for the genre.

The interview touches on the downturn the show took after he left, why that happened and that the Great Hiatus during the 90s and early 2000s may have been healthy for the show in the long run…

Take a look. What do you think, Kasterborites? Did classic Doctor Who suffer from uninvolved writers who didn’t understand what the show’s potential? Or is it such a flexible format it can welcome writers from any genre? Tell us below…

…Now, I know her exec producer has just stepped in and hi-jacked her job but does the host seem a tad frosty to you? Professional pique, or perhaps she’s one of those people who mistakenly thinks Who is ‘just a kids show’?…
