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.

Dear Tom,
Simply put, you were the best Doctor. The one that I grew up with. You disarmed bullies and evil villains with humour and intellect. And jelly babies. Perhaps that's what the world needs now to get along. Jelly Babies that is. Thanks for your wonderful work.
A long scarf fan from long ago,
Simon

Dear Tom Baker

Through the magic of internet streaming video my autistic son loves watching you as Dr. Who. He doesn't talk much being very language delayed. He only recently started using some basic words and phrases, but he can say "Dr. Who" and he usually means you. He doesn't usually sit still, having limitless energy for climbing and getting into trouble as little boys do, but after dinner when we have family time, he sits still for you.

Just wanted to say thankyou. Firstly for the two signed pictures and secondly for giving me a lifelong love of the greatest show on Earth, Dr. Who.

Hi Tom,
I was really miffed when, as I was a loyal under 10, you replaced Jon Pertwee as The Doctor. It took me a while but eventually came to thoroughly enjoy your portrayal. I think my favourite appearance was from the BBC VT Operators tape where K9 asked you what you wanted for Christmas and you looked at Mary Tamm. What a gem!
I have also enjoyed your extensive voice over work in the decades since.
Thank you for all the joy, Tom!
Cheers,
~Nick

p.s. We sometimes dip into your Doctor series' and both my kids enjoy you now too! 🙂

Dear Tom,

7.10.17 was always going to be a significant day for myself and my husband, as we were celebrating our 5th Wedding Anniversary. Coincidentally, it was also the 10 year countdown to PEACE on Planet Football in the multimedia deeply dark comedic spiritual sci-fi adventures of Michael Mavrik. In a bid to bring his story to the world we'd set yesterday as the launch date for the audiobook series on SoundCloud. Poor internet connection was making this seemingly simple task extremely challenging. Unfazed by the technical glitch, after a lovely bite to eat at Tapa Tapas we decided to pop over to Ravenside to buy some cd's in order to make some physical copies for distribution. What a lovely surprise we both had in crossing paths with you at the threshold of M&S. I don't see auras all of the time, but yours was literally beaming.
As a wedding gift I had given Paul (aka Michael) a vintage mini toy Tardis. It made it onto the mantlepiece along with a collection of Pagan/Hindu/Buddhist items at the East Court Wedding. 5 years on meeting his all time favourite Time Lord was the best gift the multiverse could possibly bring him. Eyes still on you and on a high, he wanted to offer to help you with your trolley to your car. Not wanting to patronise, I suggested he let you do it yourself. But that perhaps he could get rid for it for you after you had finished with it, as I believe no one really enjoys that task.
The hero of Paul's story is God's Grandson/Prince Michael/Michael Prince. Hence the synchronicity of you calling him a prince (when he returned your £1 trolley deposit) was quite beautiful.

Thanks for truly making his day.
Much love, light & laughter always.

P.S. As a super fan, Paul would be only too happy to assist you with your trolley anytime.
P.P.S. BTW after a chat with TalkTalk we finally managed to upload the audio onto SoundCloud, if you'd care to listen to Chapter One The Death of Greg Taylor, you can find it there on Michael Mavrik's page. Alternatively, we'd be delighted to send you a cd.

Hello, Mr. Baker! My wife and I enjoyed watching your shows on PBS reruns, from a black and white, battery run TV, in our cabin loft in Vermont, around 2000-2001. They came on at midnight. We'd watch until the D-cell batteries went and your scarfed persona turned into a series of violent waves. I liked the improvised sets, like the building roof with lots of fog from the fog machine, and it somehow kept the forest wildlife at bay. Thanks again for the memories. Virgil Kay

Hello, I met with Peter Capaldi, Jenna Coleman, Alex Kingston and Jodie Wittaker, I saw you on the Graham Norton TV show, etc. You were on the It was funny thank you for your time. I tried to send you a friendship request on Facebook but I saw you hid the button for that. 🙂 I met you years ago at Disney Land in the 80's there were 2 other actors who played Doctor Who as well.

Hello, Tom! I was so in love with you as Doctor Who when I was a kid that even before the new series came out I was watching 4th Doctor era DVDs whenever I needed a pick-me-up. Growing up in the states, my friends didn't know who you were because their parents didn't have them watching public television (BBC was huge on PBS then) but I had them playing "running from the Daleks" all the time when we were little squirts. Thank you for all those wonderful performances!

Tom...
Thank you for your gift of acting to all of us, here across the pond, in the states. You are my first Doctor, and you can't forget your first doctor. I was in high school and my friends and I would get together and watch The forth Doctor save the world. I had curly hair back then (and still do) and, because of the Doctor, I also generally wore a Fodora just like yours. I loved your portrayal of the Doctor and I loved the creativity of the show and I loved the possibilities that it brings up for us humans. The 4th Doctor taught me that nothing is impossible only improbable. As a disabled person, I have a mild form of CP, that was an inspiration for me to go past my disabilities to see the abilities I really do have.. I am blessed to have you as my first Doctor, and bless now to have a way to communicate that to you. I am greatful to the Forth Doctor, and I wanted you to know that. That is, Dr Who, your portrayal of the character, and even to you, have made a incredible impact on my life as a child that my way of thinking will never be the same again. Tom Baker, the Forth Doctor, and to the show, I am Truely grateful. You changed my life and in a time when I was having physical struggles, you gave me hope. This hope and confidence help make me the man I am today. I continue to be a fan of Dr Who and science fiction in general, but it was your Doctor, the Forth Doctor, that had inspired me to grow and to continue to become a better and better and better person each day of my life.

Thank you Tom Baker for entertaining me as well as inspiring me through your Doctor for I am truly blessed!

Through Time and Space,
Cam

Hi Tom, at my 50th party the other week I took to the floor, scarf hat sonic screwdriver and gave them my Tom Baker voice I've been practising for 40 years (which is considered quite good). Hydefundraisers had our display there too which made for an entertaining evening! THANKYOU so much Tom for being our hero all these years! And for so many Happy Times and Places! All the best Steve

Hello Tom,
As of recently, I was watching my first ever Doctor Who story, "The Pyramid of Mars", and it took me back to a four-year-old on a rainy day in 2006, where you introduced me to the wonders of the universe, the fascination in time, and enjoy life as it is a journey. Now even as a teenager my love for you as an actor and my first Doctor still lives with me today. Thank you for the Jelly Babies, and saving me on TV. P.S. I love the scarf. ~Hunter W.

I cried when Pertwee's Doctor died on screen, I was only 4 at the time, i didnt like this 'new' Doctor. But from somewhere during the course of 'Robot' I became besotted by this mad man on screen. My gran too loved the new wide-eyed Dr Who, and would take me to Blackpool to see your Tardis. I had all the toys, revolving tardis and underpants with your face on them - bizaar i know. I grew up late 70's, 80's...but have rediscovered Dr Who the Pertwee and Baker years, so many great stories. Brings back the nostalgia of the 70's. I hope you continue to have a wonderful lovely life Tom, your Dr was quite mad, fun, and so very very good. Take care.

Hi Mr. Baker,
As a child, I grew up watching you as The Doctor. Your portrayal was such fun to watch. Even now as an adult, it always gives me a thrill to watch your old episodes again.
Thank you for sharing your gift of entertainment and joy. It helped me while growing up.

You are the reason I fell in love with the show Doctor Who, and I'm so pleased that my brother's grandkids are now huge fans of the show.

It is a pleasure to share this with you. And finally, thank you for being you.

Regards,

Hello Tom,

As I turn 50 in January 2018, I think that it is time I let you know why I got into watching Doctor Who. I have thankfully told the late Nick Courtney and Liz Sladen, and more recently, Colin (The other Baker)!

I now live in Newfoundland Canada and it is an island of great outstanding natural beauty.

Long time ago my Nan and Grandad had colour TV up in Southampton, and later in Devon. We used to watch behind the sofa Pertwee being attacked by Monsters and it was very scary for me. Then everything change. My Dad died at the age of 26 in Jan 1973. My life changed. My Mum now a widow, took up from the security of the Army Married quarters in Arborfield (Dad was REME), down to Newton Abbot to start a new life. Doctor who was my weekly escape from the real world of knowing that I would never see my Dad again. When Pertwee changed into you, I was immeadiately captivated by your interpretation! So thank you for helping me through the dark days of my life, and thank you for being a fantastic Doctor Who. I did meet you at Battlefield in Coventry we had a lovely group photo dressed up and you commented...'Is this some Edwardian society?' You made us laugh and help us not to feel nervous! Thank you for your service to acting! -Mark Todd- St. John's Newfoundland.
Niki Hollenbach from Shamokin wrote on August 22, 2017 at 1:28 am:
you are my favorite doctor, and having discovered that you are a cat lover, my admiration for you has grown 10fold!

I started watching the series when it was relaunched which prompted me to dig up the older series. You, kind doctor, surpass them all!
when my son gets a bit older, yours, is the series that will introduce him to the legacy of the doctor!

PS: I had my dear grandmother knit me the same scarf.. she still calls me crazy for wanting a scarf so long (I may, or may not, have given extra wool)

Hi Tom. We chatted some years ago in a mini bus on the way to the set of Medics where we were filming. You kindly chatted to my wife on the phone to cheer her up as she'd just lost her dad.
I wish I had known that day that we were at the same boarding school in Shropshire. I joined in 1966 but you had left a few years previously. Would love to exchange views about those days.

Also, thank you to all at the BBC that made Dr. Who a wonderful experience.

Thanks!

Mr. Baker, it is an honor for me to have this chance to tell you how grateful I am to you for your work as the Doctor both on and off screen.

I grew up watching you as the Doctor and had to beg to say up late to see the new episodes.

At the risk of losing points on my man card, I cried when I heard your voice in the 50th special.

I will never forget those memories.

Thank you for allowing me this moment.

Hello Tom!
As a kid I loved watching you play the Doctor! I'll never forget being amazed and confused (in a good way) as a child and now I get to share this love with my own children. My 3-year old daughter especially loves Doctor Who and enjoys watching your episodes with me. She loves K9! Its just so great and I'd like to thank you for your work.
