David Tennant did some voice work in Clone Wars, so it’s not totally out of the norm to have a Doctor Who legend in Star Wars, but hell, Baker is a true, honest to goodness legend!

The actor, who played the fourth Doctor, was at the Day of the Doctors convention in Slough last weekend and told the audience that he was heading into space again, only this time it was a long, long time ago…. appropriate, really:

I’m going to be in this new Star Wars thing, you know? “I’m going down to recording some voices for this new character they’ve created for me, very soon.”

It’s not clear if he means for the movies or Rebels, but we’re reckoning it’s more than likely Rebels… but either wasy, having him in the Star Wars universe is very, very cool.

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….
