Colin Baker on Big Finish, Jodie Whittaker, and who should play the next Doctor

The world of Doctor Who is anticipating a big change: it won’t be long until Jodie Whittaker embarks on her final series as the Doctor, soon to regenerate into the fourteenth (ish) actor to play the Time Lord. Has Baker been following her performance?

“I’ve seen enough to know that I thoroughly approve,” he enthuses. “I love something that she has brought, that I’ve never seen in a Doctor before, which is joy: the joy of being the Doctor. I suppose joy isn’t a particularly manly attribute. Usually, smugness is more what men go for, rather than joy!”

“Those initial episodes, where she was finding out who she was and making a sonic screwdriver? All those moments, I actually loved it. I’m looking forward to having the chance to sit and watch all the other stories! I love the way it was going. And I’m sure she will have a thumping good exit, I’m looking forward to seeing that as well.”

New interview! I spoke to Colin Baker – the Sixth Doctor! – about his latest Big Finish adventures, his thoughts on Jodie Whittaker’s Thirteenth Doctor and who should replace her, and more.

Really enjoyed doing this one – obviously always exciting to talk to a Doctor Who, and it made for a nice debut piece over at Digital Spy too.
