‘A waste of the licence fee’: how Colin Baker almost finished off Doctor Who

  • In February 1985, the Doctor made the Six O’Clock News. “Doctor Who,” announced Sue Lawley, “is to take a rest.” By that time, the Doctor had been a BBC fixture for more than 21 years. He had stepped out of the Tardis and into the much-trumpeted arena of “British institutions”. But the “rest” was in fact a Beeb-enforced 18-month hiatus – a perilous time known among Doctor Who fans as “the suspension” or, rather more dramatically, “the cancellation crisis”.

Stunning Video Captures Young Whale 'Dancing' Near Queensland

Professional photographer Colin Baker captured incredible footage of a young whale’s underwater acrobatics while snorkeling near Lady Elliot Island, Queensland, on July 16.Baker was exploring the island’s reef in the search for turtles and manta ray to photograph when he heard “whale song” in the distance.Baker found the whale and its calf and spent an hour with them gaining their trust. The young whale twisted and pirouetted as it rose to the surface to breath before returning to its mother in deeper water. The calf’s fins passed inches away from Baker’s camera during the amazing encounter.Baker often films sea life but told Storyful this event was very special “it’s an interaction I’ve never seen before and even the staff on Lady Elliot were buzzing.” Credit: Colin Baker via Storyful
