[edit]

Heartthrob actor Colin Baker will be the sexy new Dr. Who

The man who captured the girls hearts as brutal businessman Paul Maroni in The Brothers is all set to blast off as the sixth Time Lord.

But Colin, 40, said last night: "The Brothers was seven years ago and I've still got the tag of Mr. Nasty.

"It will be marvelous playing the Doctor because he is eccentric, humourous and much more like the real me."

Colin will make Dr. Who "quirky, witty and unexpected." His companion om his adventures will be gorgeous Nicola Bryant.

Colin has been a Dr. Who fan since the time traveller first appeared on TV. "I was 20 them, so the Doctor is certainly not kid stuff," he said.

He takes over from the present Doctor, Peter Davison for four episodes before the present series ends.
