David Taylor was a human resident of Cambridge in 1979. He died after Skagra transferred his mind into his Sphere to learn how to drive a car. (WC: Shada, AUDIO: Shada, PROSE: Shada)

Biography Edit

David's education stopped after three O-levels. He lived a quiet life with his widowed mother. He enjoyed the music of Cilla Black. (PROSE: Shada) He was also the treasurer of the Ford Prefect Appreciation Society. (WC: Shada, AUDIO: Shada)

When Skagra stopped him and asked for a ride, David thought Skagra was trying to pick him up (an unexpected and thrilling prospect). (PROSE: Shada) However, Skagra merely wanted transport to his ship, which was parked and cloaked in a field. Skagra used his Sphere to absorb David's mind and ability to drive; David did not survive long after the process was completed. (WC: Shada, AUDIO: Shada, PROSE: Shada)

However, David's mind lived on in the Sphere. After the Doctor defeated Skagra, he took the Sphere to Drornid, where he had the minds of David and the other victims transplanted into new bodies. David asked the Doctor to fetch his mother from Earth for him, and the Doctor obliged, saying "she'd only have worried". (PROSE: Shada)
