In a report just published in the “Weird News” section of The Huffington Post, journalist Aaron Sagers has claimed that Tom Baker will return in the Doctor Who 50th Anniversary Special, The Day of the Doctor. In an exclusive interview with Huff Post, Baker said, “I am in the special, I’m not supposed to tell you that, but I tell you that very willingly and specifically; the BBC told me not to tell anybody but I’m telling you straightaway.”
When asked for a response a BBC Spokesperson stated, “As with William Hartnell’s recent appearance in the last season finale, anything is possible in Doctor Who. But nothing is certain.”
