Tom-Lord Is Back

FORMER Time Lord Tom Baker said yesterday he is keen to be part of a Doctor Who reunion show - if he is allowed to vet the script.

The actor, who played the role in the 1970s, said: "I'd want to have some say. I'm not asking for Tom Stoppard to write the script, but for it to be as I remember it."

BBC1 is rumoured to be planning a Children In Need special featuring all the surviving Doctors.

Tom, 75, said he is amazed the show now features the Doc kissing girls. He said: "I didn't even know how to shake hands with them."
