Digital Spy: Tom Baker has revealed that he almost appeared on The Sarah Jane Adventures.
The Doctor Who veteran confirmed that an on-screen reunion between himself and Elisabeth Sladen (Sarah Jane) was “mooted” before the actress passed away in 2011.
“I think it was being mooted, at a time when Elisabeth began to be ill,” Baker explained at the launch of the Horror Channel’s classic Doctor Who episodes season.
“I’d never seen it, but she was so thrilled [at the possibility] – I never got round to doing that.”
Baker added that he would have reprised his role of the Fourth Doctor on the spinoff series, which concluded in October 2011 following Sladen’s death.
Speaking to Digital Spy, the 80-year-old actor also admitted that he would return to Doctor Who following his cameo in the sci-fi’s 50th anniversary special.
