Hi, I just wanted to say how much I'm enjoying latest Dr. Who work @BigFinish especially your latest 4th Dr Adventure release 'The haunting of Malkin place' - absolutely fantastic. Then there's the Short Trip story 'The Doctor's XI' wonderfully dark and comedic also. A real delight. And last but not least, those crazy fun releases you've done with Paul Mgrs at BabbleGab. I brought your latest Baker's End (III) & am loving every minute of it, exactly like I did the first two releases. It's just such a treat to be able to still listen to new audio theatre productions of yours. I'm so grateful that you continue to work your wonderful magic. I couldn't speak more highly of these releases and I encourage anyone reading this to go and check out Tom's considerable catalogue of audio dramas at BigFinish as the doctor & the fantastic sci-fi, horror & comedy works at Bafflegab under the title 'Baker's End' You won't be disappointed. I promise!!

Greetings,
I began watching Doctor Who with my son back in the 70's on public television on Sunday nights... I have been hooked on the series ever since.. I own most of the fourth Doctors DVDs... Tom Baker will always be my favorite Doctor... even with the corny monsters and props.. I am watching the Genesis of the Daleks right now. Thanks for a character that I continue to enjoy...

Dear Tom
My name is Terence Higgs and I’m a long-time fan from Australia. I am writing this to you, before Time catches up with either one of us, and I miss the opportunity to write this.
My prelude to this letter begins when I started watching Doctor Who in the mid-70’s. I was about 5 or so and the show played on the ABC network here in Australia. Jon Pertwee was the Doctor at the time and the show quickly became my favorite, what with all his gadgets and Venusian karate. I saw Jo Grant (Katy Manning) leave and Sarah-Jane Smith (Elizabeth Sladen) arrive. (I must admit I had a crush on her as a young boy, and I was saddened to hear of her passing.)
Then came my experience of seeing my first regeneration of the Doctor and he turned into, well, you. The eccentricity appealed to me straight away. The 4th Doctor was funny, quirky to begin with, but then as the’ Robot’ story rolled on, you could see the Doctor get serious and how he was actually quite clever, and he saved the day.
I was hooked on the character from then on. Funny and eccentric, but smart and serious when necessary. The Doctor’s integrity, his moral compass, his ferocity and heroism when the time came to fight wrongs, his trust that everything would work out right in the end, his mysterious demeanour at times, knowing there was much more beneath the humorous one-liners and toothy smile – there it was, all wrapped up in a 3m long scarf, and a brown hat atop a mess of curls. For a young boy, who wouldn’t want to be like that? I did.
I think it changed me inside to the sort of person I am today. I am (hopefully) funny, creative, a little eccentric (with a long grey scarf!), a little childlike (What’s the point of being grown up if you can’t be childish sometimes?) but serious and absolute when I have to be when I see a wrong. All I need is a real life TARDIS and I’d be on my way to save the universe…
So I just wanted to say thank you. Thank you for putting such life into that role of the 4th Doctor. It was like real life to me, then, as a child. Of course, you grow up and you realise it was all sets and costumes, lines and effects. But the magic of it for a child, is something that will always stay with me. If anyone ever asks me,”If you could be a fictional character, who would you be?” my answer will always be : The 4th Doctor.
I am, today, still a Doctor Who Nerd, with figures, sonic screwdrivers, a remote controlled K-9 and of course the 3m hand-knitted scarf. That will never change. And that is because of the impact your portrayal of the Doctor had on me. (David Tennant and Matt Smith were good, but they will always be second best!)
Once again, Thank you, Tom, for making my childhood memories lifelong ones.
Yours in the Whoniverse,
Terence Higgs

I have been a fan of yours since about 1980. I don't remember how I found Doctor Who, but I remember watching it on the PBS station here and the first one I saw was Ark In Space. I was hooked from the first time I watched. You are without a doubt my favorite Doctor and you always will be. I wish you did conventions here in the US. Meeting you and getting my picture taken with you would be totally awesome.
Mike from Chicago wrote on May 11, 2017 at 9:44 pm:
I'm the program manager at WYCC in Chicago. I purchased your series from BBC Americas convention in New Orleans in 2015. The result has been astounding.
The viewership for our small station skyrockets on Saturday nights.
A family here in Chicago donated 25,000 dollars just for us airing your incarnation of the Doctor.
(Series cost us much less to air for 3 years)
So you made my job much more fun and I received the esteem of my bosses. Greatest thing I ever did at work here and I've been here since 2001.
Thanks Tom!

greetings Mr Baker,
for years I have wanted to send you a message, but was baffled how that would come about. The series Dr Who, in particular your starring episodes were such a gift. Sort of like a cool grassy spot under and old elm on a sweltering day or cozy room in a far away lighthouse inches away from the crashing force of the sea. such was my life then and I thank you for the part you played in me holding on to the infrequent sunny days of those years. thank you and may all joy and miracles remain with you forever stormy
Nigel Chase from Isle of Man wrote on May 11, 2017 at 8:05 am:
All of the Doctors are simply amazing. However, Tom Baker stands out for me because of the comedic slant he put on the character. Then to see him appear in my favourite comedy Blackadder, as Captain Redbeard Rum and totally steal the episode, is still a joy to watch. Known as the Tom baker episode to most people....brilliant. Anything with Tom Baker you know will be quality and a must watch. may he continue making us feel good. Top man thanks x

I have wondered since your appearance on Day of the Doctor, if there was any chance you could be the next incarnation of the doctor. Or rather, I hoped for it very much. One more among your army of fans.

Will you be making it to any conventions in the US any time soon?
Cassandra wrote on May 7, 2017 at 4:55 pm:
Mr. Baker,

Thank you for entertaining us and educating us!
I first saw you when you played the 4th Doctor. How you brought the Doctor to life was truly wonderful. Now my oldest is enjoying your portrayal. We always say to each other, "What would the Doctor do?". Plus, re watching your episodes has reminded me that at times we need to be childish in our lives to enjoy moments and wonder.
I am so glad I was able to purchase an autograph to surprise my oldest child for his birthday. Truly wonderful you donate a proceed to the charity of your choice.

May this find you well and your family too!
Jessica from Flagstaff, AZ USA wrote on May 6, 2017 at 4:58 am:
I have looked over many of your performances, and they are wonderful. But, of course... As you know,You are THE Doctor. And I shall never be able to meet you, as that I am a well educated, yet poor woman of 34 in the United States. Never the less, I does make me feel a bit better to write something you are likely never to see... To say on PBS... They showed Doctor Who here. And even though your tenure stopped a year after I was born... It was YOU they showed. YOU that I woke up for at 5am to watch as a child. It was you as The Doctor I woke up on Wednesday for. And... When they started showing episodes for the 5th... This sounds bad... But I stopped caring as a kid.

So. Thank you. I have gotten into the recent Doctor Who, definitely. I like Capaldi the best thus far, because he is The Doctor instead of some young 'Crush' figure. Not to lie, though. I retrospectively had a 'crush' on the character you portrayed. Not due to looks or age, but due to character personality. That was in my twenties, mind.

But you will always be THEE Doctor to most. Even to some kids.... I say 'kids' at 34. To you, that must be bloody hilarious. But no joke on the part that even youngens... 14-28... See you as the BEST Doctor.

So thank you. Thank you for all my childhood memories. You are the reason on TV I questioned the quaint.... Like religion. I'm not going to put it completely on you that I'm a staunch Atheist, but it did help in a way to verify what I believed as a kid. Yahweh and Jesus were akin to Santa. Honestly...

Anyways. As you probably won't see this, it's fine. But you were truly not only the best Doctor. But... A FUCKING great actor all over. Love your role in Star Wars Rebels!

Thank you so very much! Words can't express the gratitude of enjoying your art/skill/love in delivering pure joy and happiness to your audiences. No other artist has ever influenced such a postive impact on a family as you. You connect our conversations, bring humor into our lives and we are forever trying to emulate your perfect smile/laugh.

Dear Tom,

I wanted to take this little moment to personally thank you Tom for being such a huge part of making most of my life bearable since I was a little child right up to now the present day. I thank you for all you ever brought to TV, and especially all you've ever done and brought to Doctor Who.

I have always been a massive fan of Doctor Who and I love every Doctor and I thank them all for making their eras on the show so special. But what can I say that will positively emulate what you've meant to me over the years Tom? Oh I don't know. Ill leave it at being amazed by your superb take on the Doctor. Giving seven years of your life to the TV show and all you've given since whether it be for Big Finish or conventions: all I can say is I am eternally grateful for your input into the best show ever made on telly! Thanks for the long scarf and jelly babies and for keeping me sane in many a bad day of my lifetime Tom.

I thoroughly appreciate your timeless portrayal of the Doctor. Never don't believe you're a really special guy Tom. No never ever forget this. My life would be a lot more sorrier place without you and your Doctor in my life Tom. In particular thanks for The Sun Makers, that is my perfect Tom Baker Doctor Who story to this day!!!! Thank you so very much Tom and I hope life treats you and your friends and family well like you've treated me well! God bless you dearly kind sir! I am also loving your renewed input in Who with your sterling work with Big Finish! I was punching the air the day I earned you were coming back to Doctor Who on radio! I've got rather a lot of things to be appreciative of from you Tom.

Thanks so much again.

Dear Tom,
I was travelling on the Northern Line last Thursday (27/4) at about 7pm, from Waterloo to Euston on a Mill-Hill East train. I'm sure you came on and sat down on my side. I'm a GCSE Literature marker and was on the way to a tedious planning meeting at Coventry so it quite made my day. The other people in the carriage were either foreign visitors or students too young to appreciate the halcon days of the 1970s when you made my Saturdays and I fell in love with Liz Sladen (AAHH! RIP) I think a lot of 13-year-old boys fell in love with Sarah-Jane! If it wasn't you, I apologise. THanks for being an essential part of growing-up,anyway!
Many regards,
Colin Old

Hi Tom!

Just a note to thank you very very much for the signed photo which arrived quickly, today. I AM SOOOOOO THRILLED!!! It's good to have a recent image of you too :). Apologies for not reading the website thoroughly and asking for a signed Dr Who pic, but I guess that it was read anyway due to your comment on the pic supplied. Thank you again, and it will take pride of place in a frame on a wall in the sitting room.

Take care and enjoy life!

To say that you shaped who I am would be an understatement. You're the Doctor I grew up with and the distractions I needed at that time in my life.

Coming across Doctor Who on PBS when I was a child opened my eyes to the wonderful world of Science Fiction and I just wanted to come by here and say thank you for being an amazing influence in my life and showing me who I wanted to be like.

I didn't have a father who I could look up to.. but you filled that role with the wonderful stories that screened growing up.

Thank you so much.

Dear Mr Baker,
Thank you so much for continuing the greatest of all the Dr Who stories with your terrific work at Big Finish Audio, I eagerly await each and every new installment and am forever thankful.

You are and always will be my favourite of all the Dr's (Yes, even more than Patrick Troughton) and my hero.

I've also enjoyed your roles in other productions such as Little Britain, Monarch of the Glen etc. Your work on Big Finish's production of Treasure Island was terrific by the way.

Finally I've purchased some of your special autographed portraits and your calendar and just wanted thank you for offering such a special gift. Your worth every penny so many times over.

Your long time fan,
Sean A. Curtin

Mr. Baker,

I just wanted to send a quick message to you and let you know that you, and you alone, made me a Dr. Who fan. As a child, I'd watch you on PBS (Public Broadcasting Service) here in America, before we had BBC-America. I'd tune in each Saturday to see your episodes.

My favorite ones were when K-9 made an appearance and helped you accomplish your goals. I'd be honored to share a jelly baby with you, sir. God bless you and keep you.

You have been, are and shall always be..."my" Doctor.

The very first time I watched Dr Who was in London in 1979 while deployed there with the Army. I've been a Dr Who fan ever since right up to today, I've always considered YOU the "best Dr.) Needless to say I was absolutely DELIGHTED to see you again in "Day of the Doctor" I'd just like to offer my heartfelt thanks for the many many episodes that you and K9 gave us over the years. You sir are still my favorite Dr.! Cheers from Fayetteville NC.

Mr. Baker,
You are by far my favorite Dr. I used to watch you at my nanny's house on PBS in the USA. When I think of Dr. Who, I think of you and your scarf.
I also enjoyed your character on Black Adder II and Little Britain.
I'm so happy to have found your website and I will be watching as many of your movies/shows as possible.
Thank you for being my first exposure to British television.
Much appreciation and adoration,
