Colin Baker, who played the Sixth Doctor between 1984 and 1986, turns 71 years old today!
Baker took over from Peter Davison at the end of 1984’s The Caves of Androzani, and after the show was put on hiatus, Baker returned in 1986 for the 14-part The Trial of a Time Lord series. This was to be Baker’s final appearance in the show, with Sylvester McCoy taking over the role in Time and the Rani.
Baker has appeared regularly since in Big Finish audio adventures, and recently appeared alongside Peter Davison and Sylvester McCoy in 50th anniversary spoof The Five(ish) Doctors Reboot.
From everyone here at The Gallifrey Times, we’d like to wish Colin Baker a happy birthday!
