PETER DAVISON

The Fifth Doctor (1982-1984)

Selling the fifth Doctor

  • See the table in SELLING DOCTOR WHO for a list of the countries that screened the Fifth Doctor.


The Davison series was sold in two "Groups" of stories.

Click on the story title to go to the list of (known) countries where that serial was screened.


GROUP A

5ZCastrovalva4
5WFour to Doomsday4
5YKinda4
5XThe Visitation4
6ABlack Orchid2
6BEarthshock4
6CTime-Flight4
6EArc of Infinity4
6DSnakedance4
6FMawdryn Undead4
  • Mawdryn Undead was the "cut-off" point for sales to New Zealand and the Netherlands, presumably because the ten serials offered a package of 38 episodes, one shy of the industry standard of 39.


GROUP B

6GTerminus4
6HEnlightenment4
6JThe King's Demons2
6KThe Five Doctors*1
6LWarriors of the Deep4
6MThe Awakening2
6NFrontios4
6PResurrection of the Daleks(2/4)
6QPlanet of Fire4
6RThe Caves of Androzani4
  • (*) Although we've included it with Group B, The Five Doctors was generally sold on its own, or not at all: several countries that bought the Peter Davison serials were not offered the 20th anniversary story.
  • Although only ten (known) countries bought Peter Davison stories, by no means should this incarnation be classed as being unsuccessful as far as sales go; indeed, each sale to a PBS station in the USA was virtually the equivalent of a sale to another country. And there were nearly 200 US stations screening Doctor Who by the late 1980s. Think about it...
