Is There a Doctor in the House?
Tom Baker, the actor who became the most recognised of the eight incarnations of “Doctor Who”, might be making a comeback. The Doctor Who Newspage reports that Baker was apparently screen tested for the part of Gandalf in the upcoming “Lord of the Rings” trilogy, sometime in March. While Baker is best known in the sci-fi field, he has worked in the ‘sorcery fantasy’ genre before – most notably a major part in the TV adaption of “The Silver Chair”, the sixth book in CS Lewis’ “Chronicles of Narnia” series. No doubt there’ll be some in-joke about a TARDIS worked into the story. Thanks to ‘Calli’ & ‘GMW’.Posted in Lord of the Rings, LotR Cast News, LotR Movies, Old Main News, Other Cast, Rumours Spy News on May 1, 1999 by xoanon
