The Doctor has often been known to hallucinate towards the end of his life; Tom Baker had visions of K9, Peter Davison saw Adric, and I like to think Colin Baker caught a glimpse of Frobisher before breathing his last. Therefore, in-keeping with Time Lord tradition, it was only fitting that the Eleventh Doctor should

It’s a pivotal moment: crouched down at the Fourth Doctor’s side, Harry and Sarah, eyes fixed on their time-traveling companion, where, clasped between his fingers, two wires, held just inches away from each other and, ultimately, the total annihilation of the Daleks. Those familiar blue eyes, made all the more striking by the six LCD

Peter Capaldi, Tom Riley film new Doctor Who - pictures

16 April 2014 7:23 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

Peter Capaldi and Tom Riley have been spotted on-set filming new Doctor Who.

Da Vinci's Demons star Riley has landed a guest role on the BBC sci-fi drama, in an episode written by Mark Gatiss.

Riley's episode - which will also star Ben Miller as a villain - is rumoured to be based on the legend of Robin Hood.

Expected to air third in Peter Capaldi's first series as the new Doctor, the instalment is one of two new Who scripts penned by Gatiss.

"Peter has a very different energy to Matt Smith and to David Tennant," the writer previously told Digital Spy. "The Doctor's always the Doctor - but you can have a lot of fun playing with people's expectations."

Doctor Who will return to BBC One in the autumn.

Doctor Who: 10 Alien Worlds That Need To Be Revisited

15 April 2014 10:18 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

BBC

Over the past few years, one of the most common criticisms of modern Doctor Who has been its tendency to set stories on Earth, specifically in present day Britain. For the most part, the show finds a way to strike a healthy balance between past, present, and future, on Earth and otherwise. But some fans insist that part of the magic of Doctor Who is his ability to be a cosmic backpacker, spending nearly every week on a different alien world, something that can hardly be showcased when the Doctor is stuck on Earth for extended periods of time.

With the advances in technology that have taken place since the show’s inception in 1963, it almost feels like a missed opportunity not to go back and revisit some of the more interesting planets we’ve seen the Doctor explore. In New Who, the show runners have cultivated an almost reverential attitude towards classic monsters. »

Tom Baker on Sarah Jane Adventures guest stint: "It was being mooted"

15 April 2014 8:00 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

Tom Baker has revealed that he almost appeared on The Sarah Jane Adventures.

The Doctor Who veteran confirmed that an on-screen reunion between himself and Elisabeth Sladen (Sarah Jane) was "mooted" before the actress passed away in 2011.

"I think it was being mooted, at a time when Elisabeth began to be ill," Baker explained at the launch of the Horror Channel's classic Doctor Who episodes season.

"I'd never seen it, but she was so thrilled [at the possibility] - I never got round to doing that."

Baker added that he would have reprised his role of the Fourth Doctor on the spinoff series, which concluded in October 2011 following Sladen's death.

Speaking to Digital Spy, the 80-year-old actor also admitted that he would return to Doctor Who following his cameo in the sci-fi's 50th anniversary special.

The Horror Channel will begin airing classic Doctor Who episodes with 'An Unearthly Child' on Friday, April 18 at 7pm. »

Tom Baker remembers classic Doctor Who: "Probably I stayed on too long"

15 April 2014 5:15 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

Classic Doctor Who is returning to British television. Courtesy of the Horror Channel, episodes from the '60s, '70s and '80s will air on UK screens from Friday, April 18.

Tom Baker open to Doctor Who return: 'Capaldi might ask for me!'

15 April 2014 3:41 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

Tom Baker has said that he "wouldn't rule... out" another appearance on Doctor Who.

The 80-year-old returned to the BBC sci-fi drama for its 50th anniversary special in November 2013.

"I wouldn't rule anything out," Baker told Digital Spy of a potential return. "If it was a nice part, with some good lines, I might deign to appear!

"I greatly admire [Twelfth Doctor Peter] Capaldi, he's lovely and apparently he's a great fan of Doctor Who - he might ask for me!"

Baker was promoting the launch of the Horror Channel's season of classic Doctor Who episodes.

Speaking earlier to assembled press, the actor admitted that he felt "uneasy" about his Who return, having previously turned down a role in 20th anniversary special 'The Five Doctors' in 1983.

"Going to Cardiff on a winter's morning at 4 o'clock couldn't possibly be fun," he quipped. "I was a bit uneasy, but Matt Smith was a charming young man. »

Dr Who: films of Peter Davison, Colin Baker, Sylvester McCoy

15 April 2014 2:13 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Feature Alex Westthorp 16 Apr 2014 - 07:00

Alex's trek through the film roles of actors who've played the Doctor reaches Peter Davison, Colin Baker and Sylvester McCoy...

Read the previous part in this series, Doctor Who: the film careers of Patrick Troughton and Tom Baker, here.

In March 1981, as he made his Doctor Who debut, Peter Davison was already one the best known faces on British television. Not only was he the star of both a BBC and an ITV sitcom - Sink Or Swim and Holding The Fort - but as the young and slightly reckless Tristan Farnon in All Creatures Great And Small, about the often humorous cases of Yorkshire vet James Herriot and his colleagues, he had cemented his stardom. The part led, indirectly, to his casting as the venerable Time Lord.

Doctor Who's Tom Baker: BBC bosses were monsters but I'd come back | Media Monkey

Ex-Time Lord admits he had problems with Beeb management, but says he would be tempted to do more episodes now

Doctor Who star Tom Baker has hit out at BBC bosses, saying they were a bunch of "monsters" who were no better than the Daleks. The Mirror reports that the actor, who played the Doctor from 1974 to 1981, said at the launch of the Horror Channel's season of classic episodes: "The monsters on Doctor Who were never so amazing as the monsters on the sixth floor of the BBC. There were some improbable looking people there." The former Time Lord added: "If someone gave me two wires now and said 'You could blow up the BBC' I'd be tempted." But Baker, who quit after falling out with the show's producer, admitted he didn't want to leave: "I was always happy. I didn't want it to stop." Indeed, the Radio Times reports that, »

Interview Simon Brew 15 Apr 2014 - 06:56

Tom Baker chats to us about Doctor Who, Day Of The Doctor, fans, Harrison Ford and writing...

The Horror Channel has picked up the rights to show classic Doctor Who, and celebrated the fact at a special launch, attended by the mighty Tom Baker. As part and parcel of that, we got to spend some time chatting with the longest serving Doctor, a man whose eyes and teeth have life of their own, and are as simultaneously transfixing, unsettling and warm as they are on screen.

Here's how we got on...

You've talked before that it's adults that respond to you in the street, and it's adults that send you letters. But my 10-year old has never been as impressed about anyone I've interviewed. Have you found in the last couple of months in particular that you've had a lot more reaction from much younger fans? »

Fans begrudge lack of British acts on Britain's Got Talent

14 April 2014 4:00 AM, PDT | Virgin Media - TV | See recent Virgin Media - TV news »

Tom Baker is pleased his appearance in the 'Doctor Who' 50th anniversary special upset some of the other former stars. The 80-year-old actor - who portrayed the titular Time Lord from 1974 to 1981 - had a cameo role as The Curator opposite Matt Smith in last year's feature-length episode 'The Day of the Doctor', and he was the only classic Doctor to be asked back. Tom mischievously claims his return was made even better by the idea it annoyed the actors from the sci-fi show's original run.

4-Year-Old's Star Wars-Themed Funeral Fulfills His Final Wish

13 April 2014 10:21 AM, PDT | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

Jack Robinson, a 4-year-old Hampshire boy with an inoperable brain tumor, died last week. Before his death, Jack had several of his dreams come true. He was visited at the hospital by Gary Barlow, a judge on the U.K. edition of the X Factor and frontman of the British pop-group Take That. Jack was a admirer of Barlow's single 'Let Me Go.' Jack was also a huge Doctor Who fan, and received a personalized message from Matt Smith, the Eleventh Doctor (video at bottom of the page). He was even given a ride in a fire engine as an early birthday present. All of those acts of kindness certainly helped ease the young boy's pain, yet Jack had one final wish - a Star Wars-themed funeral. Two days ago in Denmead, Hampshire, at All Saints' church, Jack's family and friends gathered to make that final wish a reality. »

6 Reasons Brian Blessed Needs To Appear In A Modern Comic Book Movie

13 April 2014 5:29 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Fox Broadcasting Company

Brian Blessed.

Those two words are enough to make anybody with a heart smile. The man is a British institution and a truly iconic and legendary figure in a world in which the term “legend” is thrown around all too often undeservedly.

Now 77 years of age, Blessed has lived one of the most remarkable, fulfilling, interesting and eventful lives that any human being could ever hope to live. He has acted, presented, explored, climbed mountains, boxed, turned his hand to football punditry and even appeared on television as the legendary tenor Luciano Pavarotti – can anybody in the world boast such a versatile résumé?

Wonderfully, he is still showing no signs of slowing down and is still very much active in every sense of the word and that got us thinking: Wouldn’t it be great to see Brian Blessed back on the big screen in one of »
