Confirmed: Tom Baker to Return to Doctor Who in New BBC Audio Series

Thursday, July 16th, 2009

tom baker returns to Doctor WhoConfirming a Doctor Who rumor that I wrote about here on the TARDIS Databanks back in March, Tom Baker will be returning to the role of the fourth Doctor — playing the role for the first time* since he left at the end of Logopolis back in March of 1981.

Tom will appear in a series of five new linked audio adventures collectively titled Hornet’s Nest, written by the brilliant but sometimes controversial Paul Magrs.

They will be released on CD, one a month, starting September 2009.

Former Doctor Who Tom Baker To Return in 2010

Tom Baker, the Fourth Doctor to return to Doctor WhoThe Daily Express is reporting that a BBC mole has told them that Tom Baker will be returning to the series after over twenty-eight years to appear alongside the 11th Doctor Matt Smith.

Tom Baker played the fourth Doctor, from 1974-1981, and is widely considered to be the most popular and iconic of the classic series Doctors, only surpassed in worldwide popularity by David Tennant in recent years.

The BBC has not officially announced this, and even if it’s true are not likely to announce it anytime soon since Smith won’t be taking over the role until 2010.

One of my personal favorite Tom Baker stories, Image of the Fendahl, is coming to DVD in the UK this April.

Co-starring Louise Jameson as Leela, this story was classic Doctor Who’s most direct stab at outright horror, featuring the Fendahl, an ancient monster from Timelord myth which ate life itself.

One of the things that made this story so scary for me as a child was that it was one of the few times where we actually see the Doctor truly afraid, as encountering the Fendahl plays on his childhood fears from the stories he heard of them when he was young.
