FTN interviews the sixth Doctor, Colin Baker (video)

March 10th, 2012 by Marc Comments


Although Colin Baker’s performance as the Doctor was superb, he left the series, through no fault of his own, on a rather low note.

However, over the last few years he has very much come back into the fold, due in no small part to his performances as the legendary time-lord on the Big Finish audio books. Paddy Ryan caught up with him at Heroes & Legends in W5, Belfast and talked to him about playing the role and the impact it had on his career. He was a gentleman and a pleasure to interview.

So get comfy, hold a cushion in front of your eyes and enjoy as Following the Nerd catches up with Gallifrey’s most famous son…

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
