Tom Baker — against BBC orders! — has blabbed in the Huffington Post that he will appear in the Doctor Who 50th Anniversary Special this Saturday.
The fourth and most iconic actor to play the Doctor says he was made for the part and has never really left it behind.
“I identified very much with the character of the benevolent alien who wanted to heal the wounds of the silly people who couldn’t get on together.”
“I was Doctor Who before I got it and I remained Doctor Who since I did it,” said Tom Baker. “There wasn’t much difference except apart from the miraculous aspect of being able to disappear and reappear, apart from the mechanical dog and beautiful assistants and Daleks — it was very much like my life.”
Several other past Doctors are expected to take part in the show. Just how many remains to be seen.
