Baker, the fourth Doctor, has returned to the BBC to help complete a long-lost episode from 1979 titled 'Shada'.
The loveably eccentric Baker, the longest-serving Doctor and now aged 83, has not starred as the Gallifreyan since 1981, when the character regenerated and the role was taken over by Peter Davison.
However, nearly 40 years on, the English actor has been persuaded to put on his trademark hat and stripey scarf once again, in order to finish off an episode that began filming in 1979 but which never completed due to BBC strike action.

Get ready for a "Peter Tour-de-force".
There's now just over a month to go until this year's 'Doctor Who' Christmas special hits the small screen, with hype surrounding the episode at an all-time high. Fans already know that this will be Peter Capaldi's final episode in the titular role, with Jodie Whittaker stepping in to become the first female-bodied Doctor to come to the television series. David Bradley will also be starring, taking on the role of the First Doctor, originally played by the late William Hartnell.
Peter Capaldi's final outing as Doctor Who is almost upon us
Capaldi isn't the only man leaving the series behind, with showrunner Steven Moffat handing over his duties to 'Broadchurch' creator Chris Chibnall for the future after the Christmas special. Having worked with Whittaker before on the ITV crime drama, it's going to be very interesting to see just how she and Chibnall bring the Doctor to life in a way like never before moving ahead.
One of the best looks for the Doctor so far.
You really have to hand it to the costume designers for 'Doctor Who'. Never failing to come up with a unique and wonderful ensemble for each new Doctor, the BBC have now unveiled the official look for Jodie Whittaker as the very first female incarnation of the Timelord.

In the first look image of Jodie as the Doctor, she wears adorable high-waisted, shin-length blue trousers with yellow braces teamed with a navy top, brown boots with visible socks and a long trench coat. It positively screams 'Doctor Who', and has succeeded in getting us thoroughly excited for her first appearance.

He was not forgiving with his sly dig at the BBC.
It's never worth taking a dig at your workplace in public no matter how barely noticeable you think it is. 'Doctor Who' actor Nicholas Pegg has just found himself dropped from the BBC after making a sly and very rude comment about broadcasting company in his own magazine column.

If he thought no-one would figure it out then he really doesn't know 'Doctor Who' fans at all. The actor, who voices the Daleks in the sci-fi TV series, delivered a coded message in his Doctor Who Magazine column, with the first letter of each sentence spelling out a very offensive remark.

Peter Capaldi's Doctor will make his final appearance this festive season.
'Doctor Who' has for many years entertained sci-fi fans and pushed the boundaries of the genre like never before. This year it'll be returning for a Christmas special, as has become tradition, as the baton passes from one version of the Doctor to another. Directed and written by Rachel Talalay alongside outgoing series showrunner Steven Moffat, the final episode of the year will serve to tie up the Doctor's story as far as Peter Capaldi's version of the character goes, with Jodie Whittaker finally being properly introduced as the latest Doctor.

As the first female-bodied version of the Doctor, Whittaker has already faced a plethora of differing reactions following the casting announcement. The majority of fans however are excited to see exactly what she can bring to the role.

The former 'Corrie' star will appear alongside Jodie Whittaker.
The first official male 'Doctor Who' companion has finally been revealed, with reports revealing that British actor and presenter Bradley Walsh will be joining Jodie Whittaker in the future series of the sci-fi show. Now that is certainly something we never saw coming.
Bradley Walsh wins an NTA
With the first female Doctor comes the first long-term male companion in the shape of 57-year-old 'The Chase' presenter Bradley Walsh. It won't be his first stint in the franchise either, having previously appeared a 2008 double-episode of 'The Sarah Jane Adventures' as Elijah Spellman aka The Pied Piper aka Odd Bob the Clown.

She apologises for all the speculation that her co-star got earlier this year.
Jodie Whittaker is glad that she can finally reach out to Phoebe Waller-Bridge and apologise for all the 'Doctor Who' rumours she had to deal with in the run-up to the announcement of the thirteenth Doctor. Jodie was so under scrutiny that she couldn't so much as text her friend.
Jodie Whittaker snapped outside the ITV studios
The BBC always like to keep the identity of the next Doctor super secret until the right moment, which put a lot of pressure on Jodie Whittaker when she was told she was to take over from Peter Capaldi. She opened up about her big secret to Dermot O'Leary on BBC Radio 2 and apologised to her 'Broadchurch' co-star.
Tennant, who played Doctor Who for five years until 2010, was asked about Whittaker's appointment by US chat show host Stephen Colbert.
Amid the backlash from some quarters against the casting of a female Doctor Who, the BBC sci-fi show’s former star David Tennant has backed the newly announced Jodie Whittaker, saying that her gender will be “irrelevant almost immediately” when she makes her debut.
The 46 year old actor, who played the Time Lord between 2005 and 2010, chatted with American talk show host Stephen Colbert on ‘The Late Show’ on Thursday (August 10th). He said that although Whittaker’s appointment was the first time a woman has played the Doctor, the character has never been of any fixed gender, so a male actor is as relevant to the part as a female one.
“Whenever the Doctor changes, there’s a backlash,” Tennant explained. “Sure, Jodie is from a different gender – but that will be irrelevant almost immediately when she takes the part. It’s about finding the right performer at the right time, and that’s Jodie without a doubt.”
Jodie Whittaker's incarnation of the Doctor could called for 'girl on girl'.
With the new Doctor Who becoming a woman for the first time, there are rumours that there may be some sexual fluidity for the first time too. It certainly makes sense; while the Timelord's biological make-up changes with each regeneration, the memories of lost loves always stays the same.

We know that the Timelord civilisation is far more advanced than mankind; as the Doctor (Peter Capaldi) mentioned in 'World Enough and Time' when he blasted gender stereotypes; so there's no reason why the Doctor can't be totally bisexual too. Michelle Gomez, who plays Missy (formerly the Master), hinted at as much recently when talking about the arrival of Jodie Whittaker.

We just can't wait until winter for 'Twice Upon A Time'.
The trailer for the forthcoming 'Doctor Who' Christmas special has arrived, and it's times like this that make us yearn for December. We already know that we'll get to meet Jodie Whittaker for the first time, but what final adventure is in store for Peter Capaldi's Doctor?
Continuing on from season 10 episode 12, 'The Doctor Falls', we see the Doctor on an adventure with the first ever incarnation of himself in 'Twice Upon A Time'. Obviously, William Hartnell is no longer around to be in any more series, but David Bradley has turned out to be quite a convincing replacement.
