The Time the Fourth Doctor Chose 100 Irish Kids as His Companions

This isn’t exactly breaking news, but back in the ’70s, Doctor Who star Tom Baker went to Belfast to visit Irish schoolchildren, in character as the Doctor.  Some footage of this trip was recently unearthed, and while it’s not exactly revelatory, it is cool to think of the beloved actor braving what was in many ways a war zone to bring joy to some kids. If seeing the gigantic Baker running in a mob of dozens of hyper-excited kids doesn’t bring a little smile to your face, you may need to seek medical attention. Although I admit I have no clue why this clip uses “Le Freak” as its soundtrack. (Via DailyPop)
