Peter Davison to host Symphonic Spectacular

November 3rd, 2014

Fifth Doctor Peter Davison will be the host of the Doctor Who Symphonic Spectacular when it arrives in the UK next year.

The actor, who played the Time Lord in the 1980s, will be the presenter for the duration of the tour, taking to the stage at all 6 of its nationwide venues to guide audiences on a thrilling adventure celebrating the music and monsters of Doctor Who.

In addition, due to popular demand, an additional matinee performance has been confirmed for Sunday 24th May 2015 at the SSE Arena, Wembley.

Peter has previously fronted the critically acclaimed Spectacular tours in Australia and New Zealand and will once again return down under for its forthcoming tour in early 2015.

“I’m very excited to be hosting the Doctor Who Symphonic Spectacular in the UK in 2015. Doctor Who fans are an extraordinary, wonderful bunch, who are very passionate about the series. The Symphonic Spectacular has already proved to be a monster hit down under with thousands of fans packing into arenas across the southern hemisphere and the UK’s first ever tour promises to be even bigger. I can’t believe that I will be taking the stage at some of the UK’s biggest arenas like Wembley’s SSE Arena and the First Direct Arena in Leeds. With Murray Gold’s amazing music performed live by the programme’s ‘house band’, the BBC National Orchestra of Wales, I’m also looking forward to reuniting on stage with conductor Ben Foster.”
