D is for... Daves, Proper & Other

Two members of the archaeological expedition sent to the Library planet to discover why it shut down a hundred years ago, and what happened to the 4,022 people who were visiting at the time. The party was led by Prof River Song, and financed by Strackman Lux, descendant of the Library's founder. The more senior of the two men named Dave was termed "Proper", whilst his colleague was termed "Other" to differentiate them. Proper Dave was the second of the team to be attacked and killed by the Vashta Nerada. He was consumed within his spacesuit, which continued to pursue the others through the Library, continually speaking his last words - "Hey! Who put out the lights?". Later, Other Dave was also killed in the same fashion. Both men had their consciousness downloaded into the Library's mainframe, so that they would live on forever with River and the rest of their colleagues in a virtual reality.

Played by: Harry Peacock (Proper Dave), O.T. Fagbenle (Other Dave). Appearances: Silence in the Library / Forest of the Dead (2008).

  • Harry's brother Daniel Peacock played Nord the Road Vandal in The Greatest Show in the Galaxy back in 1988.
