A Baker In The Jungle

Postby Graceful Leonard on November 8th, 2012, 11:15 pm

This is a bit off topic, but I see that the reality TV show 'I'm a Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here' is to have a Dr Who in it's latest line-up. Not Tom, but the other Baker, Colin.

I'm not sure whether I'd like Tom to do a show like that. I mean, it would no doubt be wonderfully entertaining (for once), but imagine the poor man stranded with a bunch of gormless ex-soap actors and actresses and thin-lipped ex-politicians.

Will you be watching it (if you're in the UK, of course)?

Actually I quite liked the Colin Baker era of 'Doctor Who' because of his sense of humour and flamboyant dress. I have also been to see Colin live many years ago in 'Great Expectations' at Manchester. It felt great to see a former Doc in the flesh. As for 'I'm a Celebrity.....', I never watch it.

Much as I love Colin, it's not enough to get me to watch reality TV.
I wish him luck though.

Yes, I liked Colin's sense of humour in the role, and his strong presence, which is what the others after Tom lacked, in my opinion.
