Unless you’ve been stuck in the time stream for the past year (if you are, thank you for choosing Geek pride as part of your time stream entertainment) then you will no doubt be aware that the 50th anniversary of one Doctor Who is rapidly approaching at the speed of a T.A.R.D.I.S . November 23rd will a monumental day for Whovians worldwide, with promised appearances from the 10th, 11th and 8th Doctor incarnations in one episode. One Whovian in particular is greatly looking forward to the date… a sprightly young gent by the name of Tom Baker.
Baker told BBC news yesterday that he has never watched a single episode of Doctor Who, despite playing The Doctor for 7 years. His illustrious role as the 4th captured the imaginations of fans, almost doubling the fanbase during his time on air. With his winning smile and bohemian dress sense, Baker stood out amongst the previous iterations.
Baker stated that he will be making an exception for the 50th anniversary, however:
“I hope it’s going to be terrific,it’s such a landmark. It’ll be a big, emotional thing, but I don’t know what they’ll do – I’ll make an exception and watch that.”
Anticipation is getting to fever pitch, and with Capaldi ready to step into the next Doctor role, this year is looking to be absolutely huge. And hell, if the 4th can sit down to watch it, what’s your excuse not to?
