Colin Baker, who played the Sixth Doctor between 1984 and 1986, turns 70 years old today.
Baker picked up the role from Peter Davison, and debuted in 1984’s The Twin Dilemma. After the show was briefly axed, Baker did not appear after the Trial of a Time Lord series, and the Sixth Doctor’s regeneration was shown briefly in 1987’s Time and the Rani. However, Baker has gained new-found popularity in Big Finish audios and regularly appears in brand new audio adventures.
From everyone here at The Gallifrey Times, we’d like to wish Colin Baker a happy birthday… and hope that he doesn’t bang his head and regenerate in the process.
