Doctor Who legend Tom Baker has said he would be interested in taking part in a reunion show for Children In Need – but only if he was allowed to vet the script.

There have been rumours that show bosses are planning a special edition reuniting all the surviving actors who have played the Time Lord, but the 75-year-old said he had not yet been approached about the idea.

Baked said: “They should actually try and do something like that and they should get a nice jolly script with them.”

He added: “I don’t know what it will be like and they haven’t approached me yet and I’d want to have some say about the script.”

Baker, who appeared in nearly 200 episodes of the show in the 1970s and 80s, said he was ‘amazed’ at all the kissing done by the last Doctor, David Tennant, and thought the special effects were losing some of their impact.

He said: “I think it is quite difficult now to surprise an audience with special effects, you may please an audience, but visually you can’t actually amaze an audience can you?

“In a sense you just watch them trying, but if people can appear and disappear and walk through walls and disappear and then carry on fencing or kissing girls, that amazes me.

“Of course they didn’t do that in my days, and I don’t want to be a reactionary old fart about that but in my days, it never occurred to me to try and kiss a girl.”
