Facts
In 1986, Peter appeared in the video for the intensely annoying Alexei Sayle single Didn't You Kill My Brother?, but this wasn't his first brush with music. In 1980 he was the singer in a band called the Dreamboys (along with comedian Craig Ferguson and storyboard artist Temple Clark) and released an EP comprising the songs Bela Lugosi's Birthday, Outer Limits and Shall We Dance. It's a cross between punk and goth with some heavy Bowie influence. In 1997, Peter appeared in a TV commercial for Michelob beer, "playing with his model collection". Peter's wife is fellow actor Elaine Collins, who more recently has become a producer on shows such as Shetland and Vera. Peter was offered an audition for the role of the Eighth Doctor in 1995 but did not take it up as he didn't think he'd get the job (Doctor 12 awaited!).
