BBC America say
DOCTOR WHO: THE DOCTORS REVISITED – THE FOURTH DOCTOR –
celebrates the fourth Doctor, Tom Baker, in a new special of Doctor Who:
The Doctors Revisited, followed by the storyline Pyramids of Mars. Baker
played the Doctor for seven consecutive seasons over a seven-year period,
making him the longest-serving actor in the part so far. As the Doctor, he
quickly made the part his own, and with his eccentric style of dress and speech
– particularly his trademark long scarf – immediately became a recognizable
figure. Tom Baker, lead writer and executive producer Steven Moffat,
producer Marcus Wilson, companion Louise Jameson, among others,
discuss the most alien Doctor to date and Davros, the menacing creator of the Daleks.
In the tales of Pyramids of Mars, the Doctor and his companion Sarah Jane
Smith (Elisabeth Sladen) attempt to free a pyramid imprisoned Egyptologist from
his possession by Sutekh, the last of a powerful alien called the Osirans.
