Tom Baker On Peter Capaldi’s Doctor: “He’s An Alien”

Tom Baker, the man best known for portraying the fourth incarnation of our favorite Time Lord, spoke to the Radio Times about the newest Doctor, Peter Capaldi. He says:

“He’s a wonderful choice to play the Doctor. Instantly one felt: this fellow comes from far far away, he’s strange. An instant frisson.

And what’s the word? Yes, got it! Alien, he’s an alien. I salute him.”

Tom Baker played the Fourth Doctor for seven years, from 1974 to 1981.

The Doctor Who finale begins this Saturday, 1 November on BBC One (8.15pm) and BBC America (9/8 CST) with “Dark Water,” the first of a two-parter.
