Colin Baker – the Sixth Doctor himself – has joined the cast of Baker’s End!
The first series of Baker’s End starred acting legend Tom Baker as a fictionalised version of himself, who fakes his own death and returns to fight such terrible foes as Klacky the Dragon, the Sinister Presence and the Queen of Hell, all the while dressed as a giant cat. The third episode, Tatty Bogle, climaxed with Tom running into a blazing Book Tower, to save his magical library.
All looked bleak… but the King of Cats has nine lives! Now Colin Baker is stepping into the giant cat costume for a fourth adventure, The Happenstance Pox.
Writer Paul Magrs says: “Welcome to Happenstance, Colin Baker! How fantastic it was to see this wonderful actor relish the opportunity to do something that’s just unbridled silliness from beginning to end; to hear him relish the tongue twisters and florid nonsense of my dialogue; and to watch him leap unbounded into all the naughtiness. And how well he fitted in with our leading ladies – Sue and Katy – who welcomed him gleefully into our lovely gang.”
Baker’s End: The Happenstance Pox stars Colin Baker, Katy Manning and Susan Jameson, alongside Alastair Petrie (Rogue One, Utopia) and Margaret Cabourn-Smith (Miranda, John Finnemore’s Souvenir Programme). It will be released on CD and download on October 6th 2017, and you can pre-order it here
