On the eve of the release of his first season as the Doctor on Blu-ray, the Fourth Doctor himself Tom Baker sat down for an exclusive chat with Doctor Who Magazine about the magic of Season 12.
In the interview, Baker reflects on what the show means to him:
“You know, Doctor Who is nothing to do with science fiction. It’s nothing to do with anything. It’s a bit like religion really, in that all you have to do is believe it. And I can believe any old nonsense.”
