Tom Baker is to return to Doctor Who in four new audio adventures for BBC Radio, reported to be airing from September.
Baker discusses his return to the role which made him a star in the latest edition of Doctor Who Magazine, which is in shops today.
You don’t get much more earth shattering in the Who-verse than this. Tv Squad says:
This is big news. Until David Tennant, Baker was synonymous with the role yet absolutely refused to do any performances related to it. Big Finish has been doing Doctor Who audio dramas for a decade with four of the other actors who played the part, yet the company was never able to snag Tom Baker for one.
