Colin Baker Unhappy Over Doctor Who 50th Snub
Former Time Lord claims he felt like a 'second-class citizen'...
Former Doctor Whostar Colin Baker has hit out over his exclusion from the recent 50th anniversary episode.
The actor, now aged 70, played the sixth incarnation of the Time Lord, piloting the Tardis from 1984 to 1986.
Speaking to The Mirror he has voiced his unhappiness at being left out of celebratory episode The Day Of The Doctor - when other previous Doctors were included.
"All or none, that's what I would have thought," he said.
"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.
"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."
And although he admits that he now looks very different, he thinks the show's fans would have appreciated a cameo.
"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."
However he did take part in a spoof - directed by Peter Davison - in which he and the seventh Doctor Sylvester McCoy try to get involved in the 50th anniversary episode.
"Peter came up with the idea for the film. I'm so proud of the Reboot," he declared.
"I really hope fans love watching it as much as we loved doing it."
