[edit]

THE search for Dr Who Number Seven started yesterday when actor Colin Baker left the role after three years of time travel on the popular TV series.

Last night stories of behind-the-scenes rows were denied. But a spokesman said the BBC was " sorry' plat Baker will not appear-in the next series.

Colin, 41, revealed yesterday that he has turned down the offer for him to play in just four of 14 new planned episodes.

His agent Barry Burnett said : "Colin decided he did not want to accept the BBC's offer.

"He loved playing the part but does not wish to continue for only four more episodes."

Shelved

Colin took over from Peter Davison. But he appeared in only two series when the programme was shelved for a year by controller of BBC1 Michael Grade.

A BBC spokesman said the actor had been offered four episodes because normally the Doctor is "regenerated" in the middle of the series.

"Now we will have to start afresh at the beginning of the next series with a new Doctor Who," maid the spokesman.
