Baker is due to play a virologist in Last Man on Earth - a 20-min pre-apocalypse short film.
Speaking about the project Baker said
The idea and the writing intrigued and excited me. And the idea of going to Manchester to film it excited me even more because that's where I'm fromJoining Baker and the filmmakers on set are several Doctor Who fans who helped fund the film via crowd funding. As part of several perks on offer they will be sharing a scene with Colin Baker in the film.
Director Darren Langlands said
We're hugely excited to have someone of Colin's Sci Fi calibre on board - we can't wait to get started! We're honoured to have some of our contributors join the team on one of our shooting days. These are some of the people who made it all possible. So to have them be on set with us is a real thrill for us too.The aim was to raise £10,000 for the project. To date over £10,300 has been raised, with the campaign closing on Friday. As well as the chance to appear in the film, a range of perks are available as an incentive to contribute including autographed scripts and t-shirts and a private message from Colin Baker. Each perk also includes a donation to cancer research charities.
