Tom Baker: I’m still Doctor Who
Fourth Doctor Tom Baker told the audience at the Doctor Who Celebration that he is still the Doctor.
“I had a fantasy that I was going on to something else,” he told host Nicholas Briggs. “Which was a fantasy of course because I didn’t go on to anything else.
“I’m still playing Doctor Who in Big Finish. I remain playing that lovely character. He’s really rather like Tom Baker really.”
When asked if he felt that age mattered when playing the Doctor he said: “It doesn’t really matter. Nobody has ever failed at it. It would be quite interesting to see one with a hump.”
