Sixth Doctor Who Has A Villainous New Year

Whether or not he's going to feature in any 50th anniversary celebrations, Colin Baker, who played the sixth Doctor (1984-6), is keeping busy.

After his recent experiences of Australian wildlife as a contender on I'm A Celebrity, and playing Nurse Nelly in Sleeping Beauty over Christmas, Colin is about to tour as Count Fosko in a stage production of The Woman in White.

Despite his time as the Time Lord, Colin has a long track record playing rather nasty characters, from The Brothers to Doctor Who itself - the unscrupulous Commander Maxil in Arc of Infinity - in which role Colin got to shoot his predecessor (Peter Davison).
