Doctor Who legend Colin Baker is set to make a guest appearance in Emmerdale with fans sure to get a laugh or two out of his stint on the show.
Colin, 78, who took the lead role in the legendary BBC sci-fi programme between 1984 and 1986, will appear in upcoming scenes with Diane Sugden – played by Elizabeth Estensen.
Colin will pop up in Emmerdale later this month when his character Michael goes on a date with Diane.

Explaining his role, Colin said: “I am so old that I remember watching Emmerdale Farm long before it became just Emmerdale when my friend, and colleague from Doctor Who days, Frazer Hines was a youthful Joe Sugden and the wonderful Arthur Pentelow was in the cast.
“So to get a call to join the cast, albeit briefly, as a possible love interest for Elizabeth Estensen, an actress I had long admired, certainly appealed to me.

“A bonus was the fact that also in my scenes was Rodney Blackstock, played by my old friend Patrick Mower.
“I enjoyed my covid compliant time with both of them in Leeds inordinately. As to what happened, well you’ll just have to watch and find out. It’s a bit of a puzzle actually.”
