The January 12 edition of the Express newspaper mentioned the possibility of Tom Baker taking a role in the next series of the UK drama Monarch of the Glen. "Baker, 69 - famed for his striped scarf and poodle hair as the Doctor," says the article, "is in talks to become a regular on hugely popular BBC Scottish-set drama... The feelgood Highland series stars Susan Hampshire and Hamish Clark and has attracted a staggering 50 million viewers around the world. The larger-than-life Baker is seen as a suitably high-profile name to fill the gap left by Good Life actor Briers. 'Tom Baker would fit into the mould of an eccentric Highland character brilliantly,' says our source. 'He was initially reluctant to do the series because of the large amount of filming which takes place in Scotland, but now is very interested.'" (Thanks to Mark Askren)
