Colin Baker in Doctors? Who?

For all you fans of Colin Baker (aka the Sixth Doctor), there’s good news – he’ll be appearing on the BBC again reprising his as a university professor to appear in the popular BBC One daytime soap Doctors.

Colin recently updated his blog, where he revealed that filming is due to begin in mid January. The part he’s undertaking is one that he also played in 2001 and 2006.

Baker’s been a busy man recently as he also undertook the role of Inspector Morse in a theatre production.

Funnily, the article that reports this news states that after Colin’s first series was cancelled it was partly due to a press campaign that season 23 was made. Whilst causing a media furore that can hardly be seen as what actually happened!

Doctors has been running on BBC One for ten years now and its ratings have dramatically increased in the last few years, so Colin should get a fair bit of attention from this role!

This February, Doctors will air its (very impressive) two thousandth episode and since Colin is filming a reprised role, it’s a good bet that that is the one he’ll be guest starring in. But we’ll have to wait and see…


What happens when an eight year old kid watches the 1993 repeat run of Planet of the Daleks? He pretty much ends up here writing about the show that grabbed hold of him and never let go!
