Wired reports that Tom Baker [the fourth of 11 actors who have played Dr. Who] stars in Doctor Who: Hornet’s Nest, a five-part adventure series for BBC audio dramas. The first episode (”The Stuff of Nightmares”) will be released Thursday in the United Kingdom, with subsequent episodes arriving Oct. 8 (”The Dead Shoes”) and Nov. 5 (”The Circus of Doom”). The final two parts (”A Sting in the Tale” and “Hive of Horror”) arrive Dec. 3.
“Tom Baker and The Doctor was the single best marriage of an actor to a role in TV history,” Russell Davies [21st-century Doctor Who producer] said.
“You may be a doctor but I’m the Doctor, the definite article you might say.”
