Stage name of UK actor Peter Malcolm Gordon Moffett (1951- ), best known in sf circles for his 1982-1984 role as the fifth incarnation of Doctor Who (1963-current). His name features in the titles of two Anthologies of Children's SF which were in fact edited anonymously by Richard Evans: Peter Davison's Book of Alien Monsters (anth 1982) and Peter Davison's Book of Alien Planets (anth 1983); Davison's contribution is a brief foreword to each volume.
