We return to our exploration of opening stories introducing the era of classic Doctors. This week, it’s 1982 once again, and Peter Davison (at the ripe young age of 29) becomes — by a considerable margin — the youngest Doctor ever…a record not broken until a 27 year old Matt Smith takes the role in 2010. It was a monumental shift at the time, but for this old fan it was the beginning of a golden age. Peter Davison’s 5th Doctor is MY personal Doctor, and his gentle & gentlemanly character remains the hero of my boyhood that has followed me into the present day. Doctor Who Club re-lives that spring-like awakening this week, with Parts 1 & 2 of CASTROVALVA. I look forward to seeing the reaction of the current generation of fans to this important moment from the past.
