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'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,
David

Dear Tom,

I'm an Irish-Australian writer who has recently written a poem in your honour entitled 'The Doctor Who approach to life', which I've also sent to the Doctor Who magazine. I sincerely hope that someone gives you the poem as I believe you will enjoy it. I also hope that all Tom Baker and Doctor Who fans enjoy it. Thanks for being the best actor to play the role; you truly epitomise all of the wonderful qualities of the Doctor and inspire us to be the best we can be.

The Doctor Who approach to life

Let’s take the Doctor Who approach to life,
epitomised by the polychrome scarfed
eccentric known as Tom Baker.
Like him, let your sense of adventure run rife,
smiling at the universe until you’ve laughed
at the humour of its Creator.
Keep some jelly babies
deep inside one pocket
in place of a locket
not for companions but for your enemies.

And like that curly-haired bohemian,
let sunny optimism be your guide
even in the greatest danger,
be it from a Dalek or Silurian,
knowing that intelligence is on your side,
or if that’s a stranger
you can rely on K9
and his mistress Sarah Jane,
Romana or what’s-his-name
to assist you in restoring space and time.

Everything is possible for the Doctor,
so let his bravado and curiosity
permeate your mind.
Enjoy this world with the wit of Tom Baker
and your TARDIS off-centre, your spirit free
to be caring and kind
to all sorts of species,
human or alien
or even Gallifreyan,
while solving life’s puzzles and mysteries!

Just wanted to pass on my sincerest best wishes and continued admiration for your work, especially of course as the 4th Doctor. The first episode I ever saw was Genesis of the Daleks on Maryland Public Television. My DVD collection focuses on your stories. 🙂 I especially liked Louise's episodes. Loved the character. I mention you and her and a few others in my prayers every day for your physical and spiritual well being. May God bless us everyone, as Tiny Tim said! 🙂

Dear Tom,

I don't know how to explain how or why you have been so important to me. When I was a child you added magic and possibility to my world that 42 years have still not quite scrubbed away.

My sincerest thanks and best wishes to you.

Hello Tom,

Although I’m only 21 years of age, I’ve got and seen all your episodes of Dr Who and I can see why you’re one of the most (if not the most) popular Doctor in the series. Although I’m from the generation of people after your stint on the show (having first watched the series when Christopher Eccleston started in the modern series when I was about 8 years old) but I definitely think that you and Jon Pertwee are the best Doctors in the series having watched the classic and modern eras. Also my birthday, like yours, is on the 20th January
Derrick Gordon from Hillsborough wrote on May 8, 2018 at 2:22 am:
I've written you before, and I'm doing so again to tell you that I still think you're the greatest. I hope you're in good health and high spirits, and your family is as well.

I have only been recently introduced to Doctor Who, through my young niece of 20 years old. I have been watching for 4 years now, and found that I can not get enough of the brilliance that is Doctor Who. For a battle-worn soldier who has many sleepless nights, I have filled many hours watching and re-watching these series. I just wanted to say thank you, and God Bless.

Hello,

I discovered Dr Who while working at Barnes & Noble at the ripe age of 42. I am from California and when I grew up I was a big Star Trek fan but had never run into Dr Who. So One of my colleagues at the store told me I would like the show. I picked up the first of the resurrection, the Dr was Christopher Eccleston.

I was introduced to Dr Who and British telly at the same time actually. I was surprised that British TV was so much more encompassing of different people and ideas. One of the characters was being portrayed as sexually attracted to the Dr and the assistant!

I immediately went to the library not having been warned that this show went back to the dark ages and grabbed all that they had. Wow was I confused at first.
So after becoming oriented I navigated my way through 50 years of the show. Sorry to all the great new Docs and old but, you are my favorite.

I just watched an interview with you from the 70s and you mention that there is no reason that the Dr couldn't be a woman. Now it is 2018 and the Dr is going to be a woman! Tom Baker the man no box can hold.

Erin Ehmen wrote on April 25, 2018 at 10:14 am:
Dear Tom.

I just listened to you reading your autobiography. Like most people I have adored you as Doctor Who. I suppose I was 4 or 5 or 6 in your last years of the show. And as an adult, before the new series started up again, I loved to watch old episodes as a sort of comfort nostalgia thing. But I have to tell you, having listened to your autobiography, you really should have written more! I think I would have loved your story, as you told it, even if I hadn't been a fan as a little child. Perhaps you should go ahead and write some more?

I hope all is well with you now, much love,

Erin

Currently very ill at the moment and can't sleep. so roaming through Audio books on YouTube (apologies for not buying) came across your Autobiography, totally enthralled and soon forgot how unwell and not able to slee, thank you !! I doubt you will recall, once lived just around the corner from you in London, and we chatted while you were repairing brickwall at the front of a house. In my time have had call to speak to celebrities in my time, but NONE were as nice, keen to chat and talk as you did that day. I also am an ex teacher, love reading and consider the English language as the best in the world. Also caught an interview with fellow actor Paul ???? and again, was just blown away with your mastery of the spoken word, absolute common sense, unbound taking the mickey out of your self and zero ego (ie I am a God now). In that interview he asks you why have you not written more and you typically put your self down. What a shame, as you have pure eloquence, total involvement by the reader, your descriptions of your time as a monk, the army and despair when not finding work as an actor are I would say up there with the best writers of our time, so profound. Also the pure joy, non luvvie, love of making kids happy as Dr Who (ie bathing your own children). Your compassion and kindness of cleaning shit from your father-in-law who was so horrible to you. Your honesty of 'enjoying' being liked for your being your self and choosing 'your self' and not acting as Dr Who. Then your admiration for Christopher Hitchens for his passion and anger at how religion does not deserve the respect it is given. Takes a lot to get my respect and admiration being such a grumpy and critical old bugger - but Tom and all those on here I am sure would agree, if there were more 'humans' like you, this world would be a far better world. PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE write more !!

Late Saturday night. Wife and kids are sleeping and enjoying "The Sun Makers" episode. Brings back great memories of watching Dr. Who has a 10 year old back in the 70's. Tom - You were the absolute best Doctor of all time. Have not been able to get into any of the new Doctor Who shows over the last 10 years. Also forgot what a tough ass K9 was PLUS the ladies absolutely brought it back in the 70's. Take Care from Milwaukee, Wisconsin USA.

It is my hope that this message finds you well and in the company of those you care for most. Your wit, warmth, and talent for life spans far beyond the screen, brightening the everyday experiences of those whom are most fortunate enough to make your acquaintance. You have a spark for life that makes one throw off the feeling of humdrum and seek out ones own spark for the extraordinary. Furthermore, no one can ever accuse you of being beyond the reach of everyday people whom wish to show appreciation for the fact that you are you. It is with greatest appreciation that I write these words. May you continue to shine and bring joy to all those around you. With kindest regards, Lori

Thanks for all the fish. You've always been my Doctor. Why am I not surprised Tom Baker is a cat person? And yet, I never knew. Life would have been much less entertaining without you in it. Stay hungry and stay foolish.

Sound as a Pound, Tom. Grew up as you with my favourite Doctor. Only appreciated your extended humour as an adult (bring on the infamous Symphony ad.) Went past Scottie Rd. many a time as a youngster being a Woolyback from Wallasey, but now in London 🙂 Variations by Webber cemented my memories of you in 'The Book Tower' and revered you all the more in HIGNFY. Peace and purrs to both you, Sue and the Burmese Bunch 🙂

Hi, Tom. I just want to say three things.

1. I'm your biggest fan. You're kind, clever, brave, showoff, sartastic, funny, cute, handsome, canny, caring, helpful, smart, big-headed.

2. My favourite six Doctor Who episodes are City Of Death,The Androids Of Tara, The Leisure Hive, The Ribos Operation, The Armageddon Factor, Shada. Because it's really exciting, fun, funny, surprising, little bit scary & cliffhanger.

3. I love Romana II's dress, hat, boots from Shada. I really want a dress like that.


Please reply back to me.


Thanks,

Love, Shani xxx

I was just perusing the net as I was listening to the Audio "The Gallery of Ghouls" and my eyes went saucer wide when I saw you were in Dungeons and Dragons! OMG! That's just overwhelmingly awesome! (yes, I'm a nerd who actually likes the AD&D stuff - I used to watch the animation of Dungeons and Dragons as a kid)

Thank you for all your hard work and all the joyous stories I get to listen to.

Dear Tom

Thank you for giving us years of entertainment as an actor! As a kid my Sister & I used to hide behind the sofa when Doctor Who came on our TV, then we'd venture out to watch you in action (we were scared of the dalek's & cyber men).

I've been lucky enough to meet you several times when I worked in your local Tesco years ago & I recall us chatting about places you visited & your love of Sushi if I remember correctly.
If we didn't have the fruit & veg you were wanting you'd make our staff & customers laugh by 'politely' saying to us (in your commanding voice) that your friends the dalek's will pay us a visit.

I now work in your local British Heart Foundation shop where you ever so kindly signed one of Doctor Who books for one of our customers recently. 'Thank you for doing that Tom'.

Best wishes
Martin Reeves

Hello, I just want to say that you were the Doctor that my mum grew up with when she still lived in the USA. Now, I've never seen any of the Classic Doctor Who episodes, but after watching some clips from the official Doctor Who YouTube channel, I now understand why everyone still remember you to this day. I even pay tribute to you by having one of the costumes that Penelope Bunny (One of my characters from a series I created called Adventures in the Cartoon World) wears based on the clothes the Fourth Doctor wore. Thank you.
