LONG - SERVING fans of DR. WHO may take some time to adjust to the fourth in the line who makes his debut tonight (B B C-1, 5.35). Tom Baker takes over from the elegant Jon Pertwee in a four-part series also featuring a brand new monster in the form of a giant robot.

Baker's image is far from Pertwee's. Though tall and strong, Baker's version of the eternal doctor is as a scruffy bohemian wearing a wide-brimmed hat and long scarf.

Baker, who has been a fan of Dr. Who for years, has signed up to make five series over the next 20 weeks and there is an option for more.

Two familiar faces remain — Elisabeth Sladen as Sarah Jane Smith and Nicholas Courtney as Brigadier Lethbridge Stewart but the doctor takes on a new travelling companion called Harry Sullivan, played by Ian Marter.

And—yes, the Daleks will be appeasing in a series during the 20-week season.
