Dear Tom, I love you in Doctor Who, of course. But recently I've been watching you in Medics. Your performance in the episode where your wife passes away was very moving. Thanks.

Hi, Mr. Baker!

I just picked up the Doctor Who: Tom Baker Season One on Blu-Ray yesterday.

It was wonderful to see these classic episodes in this format and thank you (and to Phillip Hinchcliffe and Sadie Miller) for sharing your memories of producing these shows.

My personal favorite is "The Sontaran Experiment" where after suffering personal injury, you as an actor rose to the occasion, and realized the show must go on!

I look forward to future releases of your seasons as the Doctor and thank you for being my Doctor.

Dear Mr.Baker,
Almost 40 years ago my Mum took me to Grace Brothers in Sydney as you were making an appearance. As soon as you appeared the crowd crushed around but my Mum grabbed me and like a Timelord got me to your table dressed in proper Timelord garb. Scarf and all. You were wonderful to and offered a few jelly babies. You signed 2 books for i still have and treasure. You will always be my Doctor. I really don't think anyone who grew up with really gets it. But im glad to know that your version of the Doctor may be the last whenever that may be.
Much love

Dear Mr. Baker,
Having watched you on television in my youth, I recently have been pleased to revisit your adventures as the Doctor on video. However, as much as those episodes entertain, I have found more enjoyment watching the recent interviews of you included with these releases. You should be proud of the example you set with your warmth and kindness. Yours seems an ebullient spirit and your good nature, humility and graciousness are a tonic, especially in these odd times. You are more of an inspiration to me now than you were 40 years ago. My thanks. Sincerely,
Ralph

Dear Mr. Tom Baker,
I am writing from the East coast of the United States today, just to let you know you are honored and treasured for your personality, your gifts, and talents so very much. I began watching your series, like many over here, on PBS in the late 70's/1980's and became totally enthralled! There was nothing on television comparable to you, sir, and when I saw you playing as the Curator in The Day of The Doctor, I was nothing short of delighted. Thank you so very much, sir. I understand that only Matt Smith greeted you then, but for me (and so many Whovians) you ARE our much loved Doctor! Appreciate you doing the audio books, also. Marvelous! Please stay well and have joy in all your en devours! With Loving Respect, Margaret

Hello Mr. Baker,
In the states back in the 70s and 80s Doctor Who came on late at night. I used to stay up late, by myself, just to watch you light up the TV and inspire me. If when things were uncertain at home I could always count on you to make things right and with a cheerful disposition. As time goes on, things pass in front of us that we had once forgot. Recently, my boyfriend and I went to see the Day of the Daleks on the big screen and I found myself tearing up from nothing else but happy memories of you playing this wonderful character. Thank You for being you and influencing who I may become, even if it was indirectly! Many Heartfelt Thanks, Dee

I have watched the Doctor off and on my whole life it seems like. Growing up in the knighted states didn’t make it easy to watch your show. But when I was younger several nights a week on PBS they would air Doctor Who. The majority of the time it seem like I was watching your episodes which I was always really happy to do. Science-fiction history have always been a great lover of mine and your show has always allow me to go places and see things that I have only dreamed of. Thank you for being an awesome actor thank you for making Dr who my favorite TV show I’ve seen every episode that I can get my hands on and I will watch it for as long as it airs. I think my only wish at this point is to hopefully someday I’ll get to meet you and for fill my boyhood fantasy of getting to meet my favorite doctor. I think my only wish at this point is to hopefully someday get to meet you and for fill my boyhood Van Ness he is getting to meet my favorite Doctor. Thank you for doing all that you do in continuing to do it through whatever means you can you’re a great person and you reach many peoples lives and you should feel good for what you’ve done ! From your favorite fan !

Dear Mr. Baker,

Growing up and living in Mississippi for the majority of my life, I never really had much exposure to Dr. Who until Matt Smith's run. Ever since then I have wanted to watch the entire Doctor Who series from the very beginning. I am sad that there are missing episodes that new fans, like me, will not be able to enjoy but I have gotten to enjoy watching a lot of the episodes, or serials, of when you were the doctor. There are many people, like me, who are only now discovering Dr. Who and want to watch and enjoy the series from the beginning. So many people discovering your version of the Doctor for the first time and completely falling in love with that era of the Doctor. Your legacy lives on with those of us who are just now discovering your brillance as not just the Doctor but as an actor.

Wishing You the Very Best,
Paul.

Dear Mr. Baker,


Not only are you an incredible actor, THE best Doctor, and a cat lover, you are a truly perfect human being.

You are always welcome to come by for strawberry jam, tea, and all the salami sandwiches you would like.

I also agree that architecture is an important topic, and 7 is my lucky number as well.

Maybe you can guess the episode I'm currently watching whilst writing this?


Many thanks for reading this.

Dear Mr. Baker,

I recently saw The Genesis of the Daleks on the big screen, playing as a special event at a nearby movie theatre. In your introduction to the film, you mentioned that, despite having done many, many, many different roles, you were known as The Doctor to 99% of those that knew you.

My own first knowledge of you, however, was as the perfect Puddleglum in The Silver Chair. I grew up watching that program and you were a very important part of my childhood. You are, of course, a brilliant Doctor, but know that some of us think of you for your many, many other roles as well.

Thank you for your talents and for sharing them,
Ryan

Greetings Tom,

I'm known for being a rambler, so I want to make this short.

I just wanted to say, that you are a treasure. You are and always will be my favourite Doctor. You really are a God to so many people. I hope that you are happy and I hope you continue to live happily for as long as you live.

Tom you were my first incarnation of the lovable Doctor Who as a child back in the late 1970's when it first started airing in the USA. I have and still consider you THE Doctor, the definite article as you might say!!! Thanks for all the years of coming onto my TV and entertaining me and showing me anything is possible and can be done. It was because of you I wanted to get into film and television and got a degree in said field.

I watched the cinema showing of 'Genesis of the Daleks' and enjoyed every minute of seeing it on the big screen and will shortly by the Blu-ray Disc set of your first adventures with Sarah and Harry. May you be blessed with health always and continue to entertain us as long as you can. A longtime fan,

Hello, Tom. It was a delight to see you on the big screen in Genesis of the Daleks recently. The interview after the show was entertaining. At one point you mentioned being aware of your age and limited time you have remaining on this planet. I was grieved to see the interviewer uncomfortably skip over to another DW question rather than offer any answer. In reality, the person on the other side of death's door is Jesus Christ, your creator, and He loves you. Passing through should be like entering into the arms of a loving father. I pray that you will come to enjoy Jesus more and more in the coming days. God bless you.
Bob Edwards from Kitchener wrote on June 15, 2018 at 4:41 am:
Tonight was very special. My son took me to the theatre to see Genesis of the Daleks as an early Father's day present.

I realized Tom that your character of Doctor Who was like a father figure to me, when I was a young boy growing up in the 70s.

Doctor Who showed me what it might look like if a man was kind, fun-loving, and also tried to do the right thing. It was an inspiration, and remains so to this day.

They say that the Lord works in mysterious ways. I would say that in playing Doctor Who, you found your calling, and a generation of children was greatly blessed.

Thank you and God bless,
Bob

Dear Mr Baker,

I just wanted to say that I lived for every moment as a child in the '80s for The Doctor Who programme to come on Public Television. Each new TV Guide that came out, I was eagerly looking for when the show would be aired and always made sure I was finished with other responsibilities so I would be free to watch them. It was hard sometimes. They were aired in long sets that spanned well into the wee hours of the morning, and I would often times fall asleep from having gotten up at 6am that morning. But, it was fun and rewarding

Thank you so much for being the great person that you are. Your smile and charm were always welcome, and my wife and I agree that you are the best Doctor of the series. I miss the clear enunciation that your generation brought to the screen. It is a dying art, sadly.

I am currently in the middle of a computer game called Nelly Cootalot: The Fowl Fleet, where you voice a coot named Sebastian J. Coot. I admit to clicking on him quite a lot to try and get the most voice lines out of him that I can. As always, you did an outstanding job voicing this character.

Much respect,
Mike & Cissy Garland

Dear Tom,
I grew up in the fifties and sixties and I am still a fan of the Dr Who Series, aspecially with you in it! In my opinion you were the best doctor, you had a certain style that appealed to many people, you had the quiet approach, you had humour, you had a lot of knowledge and above all that....you are a great actor! I bought the whole Tom Baker DVD Box of Dr Who, simply because I wanted to get that incredible feeling again that the Dr Who series gave me in the seventies. If you sit yourself down to watch the series again, see all the monsters again that you had to conquer, Daleks, Zygons, Morbius, Meglos etc...and see and hear in the Extras how it’s done.....I can say honestly that I’m glad to have experienced it......it was a tremendoes popular series! Thank you dear Tom for giving us you version of Dr Who for so many years 1974 - 1981 Hope you enjoy a good health and keep doing so for many years to come ❤️ Very warm regards from a dutch fan and all the best to you. Pity that we live too fat apart to take a picture together....it would be an honour to have a picture of you and me together.....me and Tom Baker....the ultimate Dr Who from my point of view!!! 😉

I grew up in the 1970s watching Doctor Who. The Fourth Doctor will always be my first and favorite. I thought I had more to say, like you impacted my life, gave me a rolemodel and inspiration as a child, and made me the man I am today. But I really just wanted to thank you for all your work.

Hi Tom,
I'm 32 now and it feels only yesterday that I was captivted by the 1990's VHS releases of all the classic stories - I still remember Pyramids of Mars was the 2nd one I ever watched!

When will you be making more public appearances so I can thank you in person for adding so much joy, inspiration and excitement to my childhood? I hope soon because I'd really like to meet you before you pop your socks! 🙂

With many thanks,
