At Home with The Braithwaites, Distant
Peter Moffett, now better known by his stage name Peter Davison, was
born on 13 April 1951 in the Streatham area of London. In 1961, he and
his family - parents Sheila and Claude (an electrical engineer who
hailed from British Guiana) and his sisters Barbara, Pamela and Shirley
- moved to Woking in Surrey, where Davison was educated at the Maphill
It was here that he first became interested in acting, taking parts
in a number of school plays, and this eventually led to him joining an
amateur dramatic society, the Byfleet Players. On leaving school, he
took a variety of short lived jobs ranging from hospital porter to
Hoffman press operator. He was still keen to pursue an acting career,
however, and so applied for a place at drama school.
He was accepted into the Central School of
Speech and Drama and stayed there for three years. Davison's first
professional acting work came in 1972 when, after leaving drama school
in the July of that year, he secured a small role in a run of "Love's
Labour's Lost" at the Nottingham Playhouse. This marked the start of a
three-year period in which he worked in a variety of different repertory
companies around the UK, often in Shakespearean roles. He then made his
television debut, playing a blond-wigged space cowboy character called
Elmer in "A Man for Emily," a three-part story in the Thames TV
children's series "The Tomorrow People," transmitted in April 1975.
His possibly best known for playing Tristan in the BBC's "All Creatures
Great and Small," based on the books of country vet James Herriot. A
role which lead on to him becoming the fifth Doctor Who.
In recent years, Peter’s starred in a variety of productions on stage
and screen, including roles in “At home with the Braithwaites”, “The
Last Detective” and most recently “Distant Shores” alongside Samantha
Bond, all for ITV.
