The Fourth Doctor Who. Peter Melonas Peter Melonas
   
Thomas Stewart Baker is an English actor and writer. He is well known for his portrayal of the fourth incarnation of the Doctor in the science fiction television series Doctor Who from 1974 to 1981, a longer tenure than any other actor in the title role. During his period as the star of Doctor Who, the series received high viewing figures and featured many stories which became regarded as classics. He remains one of the most instantly recognizable incarnations of the character. As Doctor Who, Baker quickly made the part his own, viewing figures for his first few years returning to a level not seen since the height of'Dalekmania'a decade earlier. His eccentric style of dress and quirky personality (particularly his trademark look of wearing a long scarf and having a fondness for jelly babies), as well as his distinctive voice, made him an immediately recognizable figure and he quickly caught the viewing public's imagination. Baker suggested many aspects of his Doctor's personality and became known for making «frequent and often comedic scripting suggestions and ad-libs», but the distinctive scarf was created by accident. James Acheson, the costume designer assigned to his first story, had provided far more wool than was necessary to the knitter, Begonia Pope, intending for her to choose a suitable color. However, due to miscommunication Pope knitted all the wool she was given. During Baker's tenure the scarf began to get longer in accordance with Baker's wishes.
