Doctor Who's Colin Baker to Star in UK Tour of HOUSE OF GHOSTS Starting 8/27

Colin Baker, known for his role in the long-running science fiction television series "Doctor Who," will play Inspector Morse in Alma Cullen's HOUSE OF GHOSTS. The play will launch a U.K. tour beginning at the Gordon Craig Theatre On August 27. Robin Hurford will direct the production, which will stop at 14 venues, including London's Richmond Theatre.

The play focuses on what happens when an old friend of Detective Chief Inspector Endeavour Morse becomes the lead suspect in a murder case involving the on-stage death of a young actress.

Baker made his first appearance in Doctor Who as Commander Maxil in the story Arc of Infinity (1983). Baker later replaced Peter Davison as "Doctor," becoming the only "Doctor" actor to have appeared in the television series as another character prior to taking on the leading role.

Baker's first appearance as the Doctor occurred at the final minutes of The Caves of Androzani, where he delivered his first few lines. Baker then made his first full story debut the following week in The Twin Dilemma.

In recent years, Baker has appeared on a number of DVD releases of his episodes. The documentary Trials and Tribulations, included in the 2008 DVD release of The Trial of a Time Lord examines his turbulent three years on the show.

Baker's other credits include the U.K. series "The Knock" and "The Brothers."
