Fan favorite doctor on the hit show Doctor Who, Tom Baker, is not a fan of BBC but might want to return to the show. Baker played the fourth incarnation of the Doctor in the sci-fi series Doctor Who from 1974 to 1981. In March, it was announced that classic episodes of the series are returning to TV. Starting on April 18, episodes will be aired on The Horror Channel, the network made a deal with BBC Worldwide to broadcast 30 stories. Baker is not really a fan of BBC and claims if he had the prospect to destroy the corporation, he would. He was joking of course! ”The thing with the BBC is you’ve really got to be able to suspend your disbelief, I mean anything can happen at the BBC,” he said, “The monsters on Doctor Who were never so amazing as the monsters on the sixth floor as I remember them. There were some very improbable looking people there. Who would make signs and nudge you and things.” The jokester made a surprise appearance for the big 50th anniversary episode, but rejected to appear in the 20th anniversary episode. His reason? “I had left Doctor Who because I think I’d run my course. I didn’t want to play 20 per cent of the part. I didn’t fancy being a feed for other Doctors – in fact, it filled me with horror,” he said. “Now, of course, if someone asked me to do a scene with some other Doctors, I think, if they let me tamper with the script, it would probably be quite droll. I would think about that, yes.”
