Spoiler Alert!

Tom Baker has a surprise appearance in The Day of the Doctor!

Matt Smith was talking, when you could hear a voice behind him. I thought, is that? Could it be? Please!

And there he was!

In a brief little featurette (their word, not mine), Steve Moffatt said something along the lines of ‘There was the Doctor [meaning Matt Smith, the actor currently playing the Doctor] and then there’s THE DOCTOR [meaning Tom Baker, who is still the gold standard and really, the person you mean, or the person you should mean, when you talk about ‘The Doctor’ in singular] walking up behind him.’

This is the first time Tom Baker has appeared in a Doctor Who episode since leaving the show (in stories like The Five Doctors, he declined to participate and stock footage was used to explain away his absence).
