TARDIS Tuesday - Tom Baker In Treasure Island

Look Who Is Here 
Jim Lad! - 1981
Here's a newspaper cutting from late 1981 (likely from The Sun) promoting one of Tom Baker's roles after leaving Doctor Who earlier that year.

Tom was to be playing Long John Silver in a Christmas version of Treasure Island. "It's a role I've always wanted" said Tom.

The article quipped Tom wouldn't have to learn his lines parrot fashion - he had a feathered co-star to do that!

Over 30 years on from this cutting and several stage and screen roles Tom has returned to recreating his role of The Fourth Doctor for new audio adventures for Big Finish and AudioGO.
