Emmerdale: Colin Baker to make an appearance
Speaking about his role in the soap, he 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 Arthur Pentelow was in the cast.
“So to get a call to join the cast, albeit briefly, as a possible love interest for Elizabeth Estenson, an actress I had long admired, certainly appealed to me.
“A bonus was the fact that also in my scenes with 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.”
