200 science fiction fans enjoyed a "Brief Encounter" with Doctor Who star Colin Baker on Bank Holiday Monday (25 August 2008) on Carnforth railway station. When the event sold out - surprising even the organisers, Carnforth's new TARDIS shop - Colin's question and answer session had to take place on the platform of the famous station itself.
Fans of all ages posed questions to the actor who played the Sixth Doctor Who in the 1980s for over an hour, which was followed by an autograph session.
The organiser were pleased by the turn out and Colin was delighted by so much enthusiasm for the original Doctor Who series. The actor, who also starred in Brothers in the 1970s and continues to play the Doctor for new audio adventures from Big Finish, is about to embark on a tour of Michael Frayn's Noises Off.
