While promoting the launch of 30 episodes of classic DOCTOR WHO on Britain’s Horror Channel, erstwhile Fourth Doctor Tom Baker revealed he is interested in returning to the series — and wouldn’t mind appearing with other incarnations of the Doctor!
This cosmos-rattling change of heart came as he was being interviewed by the Horror Channel:
“I turned down ‘The Five Doctors’ because it wasn’t long since I’d left — I had left DOCTOR WHO because I think I’d run my course. I didn’t want to play 20 percent of the part. I didn’t fancy being a feed for other Doctors — in fact, it filled me with horror! Now, of course, if someone asked me to do a scene with some other Doctors, I think, if they let me tamper with the script, it would probably be quite droll. I would think about that, yes.”
And Baker even said he would like to appear alongside the current 12th Doctor, Peter Capaldi.
“I wouldn’t rule anything out. If it was a nice part, with some good lines, I might deign to appear! I greatly admire Capaldi; he’s lovely, and apparently he’s a great fan of DOCTOR WHO — he might ask for me!”
