TARDIS Tuesday: When Doctor Who Became Doctor How

Showing there's life after Doctor Who, Peter Davison immediately signed up to front a TV programme called L-Driver on his departure from the series in 1984. As this article wryly pointed out Dr Who would become Dr How... indeed!

L-Driver was aimed at viewers whose first language wasn't English and was set to be part of the new line-up of the BBC's further education series in the autumn.

L- Driver of course was only a brief pit stop for Peter Davison. Further TV success was only around the corner playing a very different doctor in  A Very Peculiar Practice and a return to veterinary procedure in All Creatures Great and Small.
