Colin Baker: Mustard Aficionado

The Sixth Doctor, Colin Baker, whether he’s being his usually charming self or taking a crack at a modern Doctor’s speech (I’m especially fond of how he tackles the “Take it all, baby!” line from the Akhaten speech), has always been highly sought after at conventions and shows around the world. It was no exception when the Norwich Evening news caught up with the former Time Lord at the Rift convention.

Baker spoke briefly about his views on the convention experience, but perhaps more interesting is his affection for the city of Norwich.

I’ve spent many happy times in Norwich. I’ve done panto here twice and I’ve loved it…it’s a brilliant place to spend Christmas because it’s got the best variety of shops – especially if you like mustard.

So, is Colin a mustard aficionado? Come to think of it, the right lapel of his “Technicolor” coat is a rather mustardy color of yellow…coincidence? Maybe. All silliness aside, is Baker’s endorsement enough to sway you to plan a visit to Norwich, for Christmas or otherwise?

About the Author


“That’s bacon! Are you trying to poison me?” And from that line on, I’ve been unable to stop watching, reading, musing about the Doctor. As a recent transplant to the Whoniverse, I’ve been trying to soak up as much Who-related knowledge as possible. That journey has taken me from the Tenth Planet to the Fields of Trenzalore and gently set me at the edge of my seat for what’s next. It’s an honor to be here and I plan to bring a unique perspective. I hope you’ll enjoy the journey alongside me.

    That’s a very ‘Alan Partridgey’ thing to say! What does Colin’s view of the pedestrianiation of Norwich city centre?

    • avatar Coopergreg says:

      He probably likes the improved access for wheelchairs but thinks it does block access to Dixons.

    What’s an ‘afionado’? Is it like an aficionado?

    An endorsement from Colin Baker might make me consider a visit to Norwich. The mustard- not so much.
