A post on the official forum of former Doctor Who Tom Baker has lead to an interesting response from the Great Man about a potential working relationship with Big Finish…
Fans have been clamouring for a Big Finish appearance from Tom Baker for many years, and his reponse to the question has given renewed hope after recent events indicated that such an audio experience would never occur.
On the forum at www.tom-baker.co.uk, a poster named “sarah” asked:
It is still Tom baker’s era on doctor who… They have asked you Tom, to help write the story and design the most terrifying enemy you can dream of facing as the doctor. You can take it as far as you like, create anything, a real thriller, scariest edge of your seat episode ever. because this is pretend modern day special effects also thrown into the deal. I would love to hear what you would do?
To which the former Fourth Doctor – who recorded a series of Doctor Who audio adventures for the BBC last year under the Hornet’s Nest umbrella title – replied:
You might get your wish as I have agreed to do A Big Finish pruduction. They have accepted some of my thoughts and you’ll be hearing about them, I guess.
Meanwhile Tom made similar comments in a recent interview with Doctor Who Online, when asked about the possibility of him recording with the producers of classic Doctor Who audio adventures:
“Perhaps I could give that a whirl… Maybe they’ll listen to this and get in touch with me…so I’ll think about the Big Finish…The Big Finish sounds terribly ominous at my age!”.
