Countdown! Only Peter Davison More Days Until The Day of the Doctor' Airs

Only five days left until the Doctor Who 50th Anniversary special, "The Day of the Doctor!" We're counting down to the special by highlighting the first five Doctors. First up, the fifth Doctor, Peter Davison.

Born Peter Moffett in 1951, he was bitten by the acting bug when his family moved to Woking in Surrey in 1961. At 29, he was the youngest person to be cast as the Doctor, until Matt Smith took over the role at 26.

His first appearance as the Doctor was during Tom Baker's regeneration sequence in "Logopolis," with his first full episode being "Castrovalva." Davison's last appearance as the Doctor was in the episode "The Caves of Androzani."

His daughter, Georgia Moffett, played the role of "Jenny" in the befittingly titled Doctor Who episode, "The Doctor's Daughter," alongside David Tennant. After playing the Doctor's daughter on television, Moffett and Tennant began dating, and in 2011, the fifth Doctor became the tenth Doctors father-in-law.
