Former Doctor Who Colin Baker Displeased Over No Cameo In 50th Anniversary Special
Former Doctor Who Colin Baker doesn't seem to like the fact that Tom Baker made a surprise cameo in The Day Of Doctor while he wasn't asked to return. "By asking him and not us, it makes you feel like a second class citizen," he said.
“All or none, that’s what I would have thought,” sixth Doctor Who Colin Baker said about discovering the fourth Doctor, Tom Baker, was given a cameo role and not him. He expressed his disappointment that he or any of the other Doctors was never asked to make a cameo appearance (aside from his face CGIed on a stand-in's body) except for one. “I know Tom did it longer than anybody else and he’s the oldest Doctor but by asking him and not us, it makes you feel like a second class citizen.” Tom Baker made a cameo in the special as a gallery curator, so while it wasn't too much, it was enough to make the other Baker upset. “Peter Davison, the fifth Doctor, said way back that they were not going to have us in the special. At the time, we didn’t know that Tom was in it which was slightly irritating.” Colin Baker believes the biggest fans of the popular British show would have wanted to see all of the Doctors together as part of the 50th anniversary special. “Even though I don’t look the same, none of us look exactly the same, it would have been nice to get a small part in it – to give back to the fans.”
