At last, Tom Baker has signed up for Big Finish audio plays! He will provide the voice of the Fourth Doctor in many audios from early 2012, with recording starting this summer.
Excitingly, there will be six single-disc releases starting in January, and seven single-disc releases at a later, unspecified date. Also announced is a five-disc box-set, Doctor Who: The Lost Stories - The Fourth Doctor Box Set.
Nicholas Briggs, executive producer of the Big Finish Fourth Doctor adventures, said:
As many of you will know, we've been talking to Tom for a long time. David Richardson [also executive producer on the series] and I went to visit Tom at his home not long ago to chat about it all. We had a really great time. At that point, I sincerely felt that had we taken a microphone with us, Tom would have started there and then - but, of course, there are always finer details to sort out. Now that our plans are in place, and Tom has enthusiastically told the world that we're going ahead, we thought it best to follow-up with our own announcement. Rest assured that in the coming months we will be releasing news on this as soon as we are able.
