As Peter ‘Who He?' Davison, most nondescript of the Doctors, begins his last season, the burning questions are: who will be the next to be hopelessly typecast for life? Will Davison be rivalling Tom Baker's position as the Michelin Man? And most burning of all, will Tyremarked Tegan reveal all? – from a note (On the box) by Amrik Rai and Don Watson
