Tom Baker Rumour Takes Shape
With a new Doctor Who set to start filming in a matter of weeks under a brand new production team, rumours have been vague; of course, we don’t even have a companion yet but where did the Daily Express get the idea from that Fourth Doctor and Little Britain narrator Tom Baker is making an appearance?
Sure, there’s been talk of a story derived from Mark Gatiss’ 1990s Doctor Who novel Nightshade,but is it really likely to be the case if Tom then appeared alongside his first companion Lis Sladen?
A BBC mole said: â€œAs itâ€™s Doctor Who, his return all these years on could be explained in all manner of ways.â€
Of course a return to the show for Tom would come 29 years after his departure – surely too great a gap for him to play the Doctor again..?
