Steven Moffat Calls Tom Baker's Inclusion In The Day Of The Doctor

Whovians still have not recovered from Saturday’s Day of the Doctor. I mean, I know I haven’t. The episode was a fantastic homage to the 50 year saga of our favorite Time Lord, The Doctor. Show runner, Steven Moffat, even expressed that the chance of having the oldest living Doctor (erm actor?), Tom Baker, make an appearance was “irresistible.” Not only that, the cameo was the biggest surprise other than the short glimpse of future Doctor, Peter Capaldi’s eyes. However, Baker’s appearance did come with some restrictions. Moffat explained "Tom didn't want to come and do a long thing and he didn't want to put the old costume on. He didn't want to do any of that, but his agent said that he wasn't against the idea of doing a short appearance.” The Fourth Doctor appeared as a man simply known as The Curator, and gave Eleven (Matt Smith) some advice on where to go to next. Moffat was overjoyed with the concept, "To have the longest-standing [and the] oldest Doctor from longest ago make an appearance and be the one who briefs the new Doctor on where to go… well, it's irresistible, isn't it? You get to hear that voice again! It was just wonderful." Unfortunately the next new episode of Doctor Who won’t air until Christmas, and it will also mark Matt Smith’s last turn as the Doctor. But don’t fret; from the look in his eyes alone, it appears that Peter Capaldi won’t disappoint.
