(Re)Generation Who is happy to announce the following guests for this year (guests will be at the event all three event days unless specially noted):

Peter Davison – 5th Doctor


Peter Davison portrayed the fifth incarnation of the Doctor from 1981 to 1984, beginning with the conclusion of Logopolis and ending with The Caves of Androzani. He reprised the role for the 1993 Children in Need special, “Dimensions in Time” and again for the 2007 Children in Need special, Time Crash. He has also voiced the Doctor for numerous Doctor Who audio dramas for Big Finish Productions. Davison is also well-known for his roles as Tristan Farnon in All Creatures Great and Small.

Davison studied at the Central School of Speech and Drama and appeared in several stage productions and some minor television roles before he got his big break in 1978. His performance as the ne’er-do-well Tristan Farnon in All Creatures Great and Small made him a household name.

Davison also appeared in some British sitcoms, including Holding the Fort and Sink or Swim, during his time as Doctor Who and later Fiddlers Three and Ain’t Misbehavin, as well as appearing in dramatic roles. Since then, he has appeared in a variety of projects, including the two detective dramas Campion and The Last Detective, and the West End runs of Spamalot and Legally Blonde.

Recently Davison released an autobiography entitled “Is There Life Outside The Box: An Actor Despairs“, which he will have available at the event.


Michelle Gomez – The Master / Missy


Michelle Gomez will be at (Re)Generation Who on Saturday March 24th and Sunday March 25th

Michelle Gomez played Missy (short for Mistress) in series 8, 9 and 10 of Doctor Who. She also voiced Jevvan in the Big Finish Doctor Who audio story Valhalla, and read the short story The Grief Collector for BBC Audio’s Time Lord Fairy Tales.

Outside of Doctor Who, Gomez is known for playing Sue White in “Green Wing” and Isobel Pickwell in “Bad Education”.

At the age of seven, Michelle saw a production of “Kiss Me, Kate” and decided that she was going to be an actress. Her parents encouraged this ambition and after she grew up, she attended Shawlands Academy from 1978 to 1983 and trained at the Royal Scottish Academy of Music and Drama.


The following guests will no longer be appearing at our event due to scheduling conflicts.

Pearl Mackie – 12th Doctor Companion Bill Potts

Pearl Mackie played 12th Doctor companion Bill Potts in Doctor Who, beginning with the series 10 story, The Pilot.

Pearl Mackie grew up in Brixton. According to an October 2016 interview, she desired to be an actor from the age of five, but found that “I didn’t see many people who looked like me on TV. There were hardly any strong black women.” The role models of Mackie’s childhood were all “tough women, not afraid to be vulnerable”: Aretha Franklin, Beyoncé, Nina Simone, Tina Turner, Ella Fitzgerald. “They made me feel someone like me could do that.” Mackie’s first acting role was at the age of ten: Nancy in a school production of Oliver Twist.

Pearl will be appearing this spring in Harold Pinter’s The Birthday Party at London’s Harold Pinter Theatre. We wish her all the best.
