article imageTom Baker open to a return to Doctor Who

Tom Baker has revealed that he would be keen to make another return to "Doctor Who", the sci-fi series he starred in for seven years.
Baker was speaking to the press at a launch to promote a new season of Classic Doctor Who adventures, which will be shown in the UK on the Horror Channel, starting this coming Easter Bank Holiday weekend.
Baker originally played the Fourth Doctor from 1974 to 1981. He has returned to the show on two previous occasions: in 1993, in Dimensions in Time and last year, for the 50th-anniversary special, The Day of the Doctor. In the latter episode, however, he was referred to as the Curator, not the Doctor, leading to much speculation as to how that fits into the canon of the show.
Of the possibility of another return to the show, Baker told Digital Spy, "I wouldn't rule anything out. If it was a nice part, with some good lines."
He went on to praise Peter Capaldi, the current actor playing the Doctor. "I greatly admire [him], he's lovely and apparently he's a great fan of Doctor Who - he might ask for me!"
Capaldi is currently filming his first full season as the Doctor, after taking over from Matt Smith in last year's Christmas Day special, The Time of the Doctor.
The Horror Channel kicks of its season of Classic Doctor Who (which will include stories from all first seven Doctors over the coming weeks) with a selection of 30 episodes, starting with the very first, 1963's An Unearthly Child, which starred William Hartnell as the First Doctor.
