Baker on Doctor Who’s Female Fans

know what that might mean for the cadre of young girls who have flocked to
Doctor Who in recent years.

younger female demographic? Does it really matter, in the end, what he looks
like, or will you watch for the show itself and to see the new Doctor’s
personality? Sound off below!
Colin Baker played the Doctor from 1984 to 1986. The new
series begins in August.
