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.

Please be of good health and live a long and pain-free life.
I cannot imagine a world without your voice showing up unexpectedly as it has.
Thank you for all your entertainment.
Your characterizations have kept me alive when things were bleakest.
Bless you.

Hello Tom


I grew up with Doctor Who at the age of 8 when the BBC brought the show back in 2005, from that moment I just fell in love with the program with Christopher Eccelstone as the 9th Doctor. Over the the years that followed I have built up an extensive collection of classic DVDS from the show and I hugely admire your work as the 4th Doctor and I adore the show itself and I think that you are a wonderful human being and I hope that I will be able to meet you in person one day, it would be a wonderful honour and a privilege.


Many thanks for your time Tom and I wish you all the very best

Kind Regards

Josh

Dear Tom,

Such an inspiring actor, such a warm, wonderful, twinkle eyed Dr Who, every time i watch your Dr Who episodes i get a thrill and immediately return to my childhood, and now my children watch you with awe and yes a jelly baby or two !!! The Stones of Blood and the Androids of Tara .... Bliss !!

Your very poignant role in The Day of The Doctor as The Curator was beautiful . All the best.

-(Tom Baker)-

Dear T,

As I happily trudge through my PhD and try to find a reason to wake each day(PhD's can be a little tricksy) I now get to hear you on my morning runs!! Tom, how can you possibly sound so wonderfully young and timeless? You are such a talented chap, I delight to hear you reprise the role that was so important to me years ago, I adore to hear these new adventure, and I love to hear you speak about them and I turn magnificent colours of jealousy because of the actors who spend time in a booth adjacent. I would try to tell you just how wonderful you are but I would loose my words and you your patience. So quickly and with all my heart: thankyou dearest Tom!

What to say! I've been trying to write this for a few years now.. I get so excited I go into an asthma attack and can never find the words! i am trying my best to put the words together. I know I am young, but I went back through the many different Doctor's and not only were you my favorite, you changed my life. You were so inspiring and life changing, I re-watch it whenever I need to smile or laugh. You made the Doctor your own and changed the course of the show that allowed me to have the Doctors we see today! Thank you so much for everything you've ever done, not just with Doctor Who!
I'm sorry to make this so long, I know you're a busy man! I just wanted to say thank you!!
I do have one question- Would you like a jelly baby?!

Dear Tom,

I've always been a fond admirer of your work especially Doctor Who. I have been collecting the DVDs of Doctor Who for quite some time now and have been a fan for many years.
My nearly 2 year old son is dalek mad but will only watch the "original" series and not the newer series.

Also, without being too maudlin, I would like to echo what Scott says. I too had a grim childhood, a rather dull marriage and then divorce, after which I thought I had found the love of my life, but he turned out to be your average, common or garden violent little man who fleeced me of a lot of money. Then I lost my job, my home and the joy in living. There have been some very dark days, but your bravery, strength and courage in talking about your experiences really meant a lot to me. I think that like me, you use humour to make other people feel comfortable, but those of us who have been through difficult times recognise and respect that. Once again - thank you for being you and for enriching so many lives through your work, your amazing laugh, your compassion and your beautiful soul xx

Dear darling man! I am just finishing 'Who on earth is Tom Baker?'and I feel sure there is another book just waiting to make itself known to the world! Thank you for being my favourite Dr Who, and for everything else you have done. But most of all, thank you for being you.

Watching you on a Doctor Who special. Before the reboot when I thought of the Doctor it was you. Still a soft spot for your Doctor. And the Curator-- brilliant.

Dear Mr Baker

Just been re-watching a couple of Doctor Who serials from the 70s and was reminded of just how compelling your acting was. You made the character of the Doctor completely believable in a role that mustn't have been easy to approach.

I know it’s been said by many others and may sound trite, but your portrayal of the Doctor was a major inspiration in my (not always easy) childhood, and was instrumental in shaping my moral and ethical values. Later on, having taken up a surgical career myself – for some years at a large teaching hospital in the north-west of England – I progressed avidly to ‘Medics’, when I no doubt also took some of Professor Hoyt’s principles on board! Had less time for TV in the following decade or two for the usual family and work reasons (caught quite a few episodes of Little Britain, of course – hilarious delivery), but now beginning to catch up.

A particular thing I want to mention is that when I was 12 or 13 in the mid-70s, living in Blackpool and a huge Doctor Who enthusiast, one Saturday morning you spent a couple of hours meeting a small group of young fans at the Savoy Hotel. My best friend and I were lucky enough to have been invited, but had doubted that it would be the ‘real’ Doctor turning up; we were beyond excitement when you arrived. You must have spoken to me personally for about 20 minutes – I probably walked on air for the next week. I didn’t appreciate until many years later, with almost every hour of my own time now accounted for with a busy job and a family, how generous it was for you to have given up your leisure time. You must have done the same thing hundreds or thousands of times around the UK alone, and I wanted to say thank you and to let you know how much this sort of event meant to a typical young viewer entranced by the magical world you brought to life so adeptly.

I look forward keenly to the next stage of your career!

Kindest regards

Brad

You were my first Doctor and always my favorite. I would like to know if you have any thoughts on who should replace Peter Capaldi? What are your thoughts on a female Doctor? I would love to see what Emma Watson could do.
Patti Gelb from Edison NJ, USA wrote on February 2, 2017 at 7:24 pm:
You are my all time favorite Dr. Thank you for playing the role for so long, so we could enjoy you as the Dr. for many years.

I must tell you that your smile is infectious, and so very beautiful. It lights up anywhere you are. If you were here, I would invite you in for tea! Conversation with you would be delightful. I love your sense of humor.

Stay healthy and happy!! Your Fan, Patti

Belated Happy Birthday, dear Tom Baker! On the same day I was receiving my honorary diploma from Hoosac School. Best wishes for many more happy years! You are the best Doctor ever!

Doctor, Mr. Baker, Tom -

Three decades ago (give or take), I discovered this show on American PBS: "Doctor Who". You and the team created a world for me that I have never left.

Through the best and worst life can throw a person, the Doctor has been there for me - and I find myself returning to your tenure most often.

And because of you, I've been able to share the Doctor with my kids, crossing generations.

Thank you for several lifetimes of joy and imagination,

David

I want to thank you so much for saving me on the autograph request.You knew I meant Jelly Baby,I realized my mistake after placing the order and I was so hoping that you would correct it and you did!

It was a gift for my husband who grew up watching you,and you are his favorite Doctor. He hopes to travel to the UK and meet you but if that never happens he said getting this personalized photo of you is the next best thing.
Thank you again.

Dearest Tom,

I hope you are well, our little family utterly adores you! So much so, we named our son after you. As we already had the surname we now have a 1 year old Tom Baker toddling around with his curly hair and plush screwdriver.
Thank you for being you

I believe I would not be alive today were it not for the way you inspired my survival instincts and voice of reason when heated discussion was the only option.

I was reading excerpts from your autobiography and was touched by your struggles with depression and suicide. I suffer the same personal demons. It gives me great hope knowing you have succeeded in putting a happy life above those demons that we suffer from. It makes me realize that it can be done. Thank you for your role as the Doctor; you were my first and favorite and now an inspiration to me! Scott

A belated Happy Birthday Tom. Most of our family members have been fans for decades since we all grew up watching you from your debut through all the repeats and reunion shows. We even have tapes that have been resurrected through the years, especially my son who seems to have everything Tom Baker! Most of my family have "Dr. Who" scarves. Hope you have a wonderful year ahead.
