Guestbook

The imaginary world of Doctor Who, created through more than 5 decades by numerous talented writers, producers, designers and actors, not to mention The Doctor himself played by Tom for 7 years, has entertained millions of people, and in some cases helped them tackle this confusing world and make something of their lives.

Over 4,000 people have written in Tom’s guestbook since his first website went online in 2009, many of them telling inspiring personal stories of the importance of Doctor Who in their lives and Tom greatly appreciates them.

Hi Tom,

I enjoyed my personalized Christmas Card from a few years ago, thank you. Also, as of today 09/13/19, I finally own all of your Doctor Who Story Arcs. I just got Horns of Nimon to complete my Forth Doctor Collection. Wishing you the best from Ohio.
Your friend,
Ed

Dear Mr Baker,

My mum watched you as the 4th Doctor when she was younger and now you're my favourite after I saw Genesis Of The Daleks. I have been a fan of yours ever since then and I love your famous quote "There's no point being grown up if you can't be childish sometimes".

I've also enjoyed the other roles you've played as Rasputin, Prince Koura in the Golden Voyage of Sinbad and as the narrator of Little Britain. I look forward to finding more that you've done and reading Scratchman of course.

Thank you for all that you've done and continue to do.

With best regards, your Australian fan Jaidyn.

Hello! I've been watching Doctor Who since early elementary school (at least 37 years ago) and you, by far, are my FAVORITE Doctor!!! You were my first Doctor and when I run into a "Whovian" I always mention you and have fond memories of watching you Saturday afternoons.
Doctor Who has been a big part of my life. This may sound strange but it's true: I've survived some traumatic events and one of the only things that calms me down from anxiety is listening to soundtracks from Classic Doctor Who.
I love music in general but those tracks are the ones that work the fastest!
Lastly I wanted to share a fun fact. You and my mom are only a few days apart in age--born in the same month in the same year but in two different parts of the world! I greatly appreciate your work over the years bringing joy to many!! Take care!

I have finished reading you Scratchman book, that I received for my birthday. I felt, when completing it, it was a love letter to your fans. I have a lovely long letter from you written in the mid 80's, when I missed the convention and sent you a note and a small libation. It was my only fan letter ever and you were so kind as to reply with a letter and some Dr. Who memorabilia. I still have that letter in my keepsake box. It, and your book, are lovely and deeply appreciated. As is your Doctor. Keep well.

Dear Mr. Baker,

You will forever be my Doctor Who. You filled my Saturday mornings with enjoyment on PBS (we had three channels back then) and you and PBS were my friends. Thank you making my childhood fun.

Sincerely Yours,

I finished a walk from Hastings at Rye on Saturday, where I was amazed to see Tom Baker coming towards me along the pavement, as I had no idea he lived there. As someone who has watched Doctor Who since the start in 1963, you will understand that this was the high spot of my day! As I was with a group and he was clearly on his way somewhere, I didn't think to interrupt him, but I would have said that he has given me much viewing pleasure over the years and I still watch his wonderful Doctor Who episodes.

Met Tom Baker today at the Rye cinema and introduced myself to him. I wanted to say how important he was to me when I was growing up and seeing Dr Who also the many films I saw him in. He was a real gentleman and I must say I was welling up a bit. Thank you Tom it really made my Holiday. All the best , Richard.

I just finished reading Scratchman and loved every moment. I could hear your voice in everything the Doctor said, as well as Sarah Jane and Harry. I was especially moved when scarecrows Joanna remember her name just before she died. Well Done!

Hello, Tom. I'd like to see many thank yous for writing Scratchman. It was a joy to read and perfectly recaptured the mood and feel of those special Saturday teatimes. My wife ordered me a signed copy for my birthday earlier and it now has pride of place on the bookshelf.

Dear Mr. Baker,

You're the sole reason I would stay up until the late hours of the morning watching Dr. Who in the 1980s. You will and always will be known as The Doctor, Sir Tom Baker. I actually purchased the original 1980 soundtrack.

Best regards,

Lifelong Fan

Dearest Tom Baker,

I just want to let you know how much you are appreciated ad loved for the character that you created in Doctor Who. My husband and I are constantly returning to your Doctor Who seasons just to enjoy your presence in our home. We are older fans (both 66 years old) but age does not keep us from sharing our love for you at our DragonCon convention here in Atlanta GA each September September 1-5. My husband dresses as you and we are constantly stopped for photos because as EVERYONE tells us "Tom Baker is my favorite Doctor". We just want you to know how loved you are here in The States. Thank you for all of the Audio Dramas and TV episodes and the books you have written. It is just a joy to hear your voice. God Bless you, we thank God for creating you and the planet has been a happier place because of your presence here. Have a wonderful life! Sincerely Connie & Paul Benham

I loved the book. I'm from Wales but I've lived in the U.S. since a year after college. I ordered it over Amazon and read it in 2 days. It was in your voice and I loved that period: you were my Doctor from when I was 10-16. When my students ask me why I became an astronomer, I tell them it was because of Star Trek and Doctor Who (and when I realized I could do the mathematics, I went for it). I have seen your other work, and always appreciate your voice-acting. I managed to meet the late Leonard Nimoy and thank him for his influence. I would like to thank you for yours.
Robert Hazelton Robert Hazelton from Lakewood wrote on July 21, 2019 at 7:12 am:
I read a piece of trivia with a quote from Tom suggesting he didn't do a good job in the Hound of the Baskervilles. He stated BBC didn't like it either. Only recently did I find it available on Amazon Prime. I absolutely loved it. This is one of my favorite Holmes stories and I had thought I'd seen them all.

As an artist myself, I am often my own harshest critic as well, but I hope the fact my wife and I adored that version means something. We had a great time. Thank you for trying it, and delivering what I thought was a committed performance.

--Robert
Kevin Thurston Kevin Thurston from Parker wrote on July 16, 2019 at 5:17 pm:
I have a story that Tom Baker really ought to know of. When I was about thirteen years old, the school I attended organized a field trip where everyone of that age would be loaded onto buses , taken to a movie theatre and shown Nicholas and Alexandria. On the return trip, the conversation on the bus I was on was dominated by comments such as "What about that guy who played Rasputin?" "Wasn't that guy who played Rasputin a great actor?" "That Rasputin guy did such a great job." etc. etc.

I had never heard people of such an age, my age, talk about an actor so much before which is probably why it stuck with me the way it did. They were very impressed with you and being American of course at that point had never heard of Dr. Who.

I loved your portrayal of Dr. Who as well; best Dr. ever!

Dear Tom,

I met you yesterday at the Signing Spectacular in Richmond yesterday and I was so star struck at meeting my childhood hero I couldn’t really say anything. So I’d like to take this opportunity to say a warmest, most heart felt thank you for all the joy, happiness and laughter you’ve brought to not only my life, but to countless other people as well.

Best wishes, and again, thank you!

Peter Foley Peter Foley from London wrote on July 3, 2019 at 6:13 pm:
So very sorry for yet "another Dr Who message" but just wanted you to know, as we all get older, you were, and always will, be my hero. At the age of 14 back in the 70's I dressed as you did in your role as Dr Who, on a procession on a lorry in a town called West Bromwich. The most important part I took on was not just the hat, the long scarf, and a wig, and being "Dr Who" Tom Baker style, it was a role where I got to be different and SHOW that I was different also, because I was Gay, and nobody knew, and that was when I knew my life could and would be different. Thank you Mr Baker for helping me without knowing it. Peter.

Hello Tom,

I was thinking of you today, and want you to know you are NEVER forgotten by those of us who have followed you and cared for you lo these many decades. i saw you in Chicago, Boston, Philadelphia, and San Jose; and in London and Dublin in "She Stoops to Conquer," "An Inspector Calls," and "The Mask of Moriarty." I will never forget your kindness in treating me and my traveling companion to tea at the National Theatre, and discreetly seeing that I got a taxi one evening in London when I was out alone. These are cherished memories of a true gentleman. I thank you with all my heart.
