Emmerdale casts Doctor Who legend Colin Baker as Diane's new love interest

Doctor Who legend Colin Baker has been cast in Emmerdale as Diane Sugden’s (Elizabeth Estensen) new love interest.

When Diane arranges to meet a man for a date in the pub, she’s unprepared when Michael arrives and turns out to have quite a strange passion for something.

Will Michael end up impressing Diane?

Or disappoint her?

Discussing his appearance in the soap, Colin said:

‘I am so old that I remember watching Emmerdale Farm long before it became just Emmerdale when my friend (and colleague from Doctor Who days) Frazer Hines was a youthful Joe Sugden and the wonderful Arthur Pentelow was in the cast. So to get a call to join the cast, albeit briefly, as a possible love interest for Elizabeth Estensen, an actress I had long admired, certainly appealed to me.

A bonus was the fact that also in my scenes was Rodney Blackstock, played by my old friend Patrick Mower. I enjoyed my Covid compliant time with both of them in Leeds inordinately. As to what happened, well you’ll just have to watch and find out. It’s a bit of a puzzle actually!’

Colin is well known for playing the six incarnation of the Doctor in BBC One’s Doctor Who.

His credits also include Doctors, A Christmas Carol and Shadows of a Stranger.

Colin will make a cameo appearance in the ITV soap later this month.
