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.

Dearest Tom,

Naturally, I'm a life-long fan, and I didn't think you could possibly go up in my estimation, but you have ... MASSIVELY!

I recently saw a YouTube video of you talking about our beloved Elisabeth Sladen. You said that you couldn't remember the very last time you saw her before she tragically passed away.

Many of your fans, myself included, commented that we had NEVER seen "our Tom" close tears. It was simply beautiful and heart breaking at the same time 😥. Many viewers were moved to tears. We could feel your pain. You clearly loved our "Sarah" very much. Her untimely passing must have been so hard for you. Your on-screen chemistry was, and always will be, a joy to behold! Lis was such a beautiful and special lady. She lit up our TV screens! For me, she was, without doubt, the GREATEST Doctor Who Companion ... EVER! 💜

RIP Elisabeth Sladen 💜 "Our Sarah"

The first four Doctors were all LEGENDARY! Obviously, you were always one of my favourites, but I now revise that opinion as follows:

Tom Baker: The GREATEST Doctor Who ... EVER! 💜 "National Treasure"

God bless you Tom! Please take care of yourself and Sue, and stay safe!

Dear Tom,
Just a little note to hope that you are well. When I was incredibly young back in the 70's my older brother, myself and our parents would watch you every Saturday night as Doctor Who. Great memories. I was also lucky to see you around Tunbridge Wells (some time back now) and you would smile and say hello (each time would make my day).
I hope you and yours are safe and well.
Take care good Sir.

Dear Mr. Baker I just lost my brother Friday, May 22, 2020. An intellectual/scientist who attended the University of Chicago, my brother embraced critical thinking and rationale
as part of his ideology. He introduced to me the spirit of protest and resistance. To question things and not to give in to blind faith without reason or fact. In 1977 he introduced me to a show that played on public television. He said that I would most likely like it because it placed knowledge first and its main character built his strength on intelligence instead of violence. The Show was Doctor who and the first episode I ever saw was the Androids of Tara. Doctor who and you, Tom Baker made an impression on me. That helped to define my understanding of how intelligence could be applied in life to support, uplift and advance humanity. I lost my brother but I do thank him for introducing me to the artist Tom Baker and his portrayal of the Doctor. I am who I am today because of those early impressions. Whenever I think of you I think of my brother and that Saturday night as a child in 1977 watching a show that changed my life. I hope to inspire as I have been inspired by so many great people. Love, J.

Hello sweet Tom, My Favorite Doctor. (Jodie and David are in a tie for second) I remember you when I was little (I am 43 now), watching Doctor who with my daddy. Doctor who was so magical to me when I was little! I loved your big round eyes and wild hair. LOL I have a son with hair like that now lol I had a dream about you last night. We were just sitting there drinking tea and having a laugh. That would be so nice. I hope all is well with you and I want to get your book when it comes out. hugs and love,

I have had the great pleasure of talking to Tom twice.Once some years ago, in the Waitrose in Tenterden(near where he lived then), and more recently in the Waitrose in Hawkhurst(near where he lives now).We chatted for about 5 minutes,and he was in not hurry to get away,a really nice man.I felt really pleased and honoured as he was always my favourite Doctor(and still is)

Back in 1978 or 1979, I was not what I would call a "fan" of Doctor Who. A girl that I knew WAS a big fan, so it was a running joke between us that I counter her.

When the chance came for her to meet TOM BAKER, during a tour promoting the series in the US, I went along, and it was my privilege to spend some time in a fairly intimate meeting, just the star and a few friends (because Doctor Who was not well known in Southern California at the time). The time was well spent, and has been a pleasant memory through all of these years.

I told a joke, which unintentionally sounded rude, but instead of being offended, Mr Baker understood it the way that it had been meant, and gave me a warm smile. I'll never forget that.

I'm still not really a fan of Doctor Who, but now and then have seen and enjoyed a few episodes. The other Doctors have done good work, but, really, I can't help comparing them to the REAL Doctor, Tom Baker.

Hello Tom.
Seeing you in the Liz Sladen tribute film has prompted me to drop you a line just to say thanks for everything. Over the years you really have enriched so many lives (mine included), and for that I felt that I should say that I am grateful.
Peace and love

Dear Tom,

I just wanted to firstly say that I hope you and your good lady are staying safe and well throughout the lockdown. It is a most worrying time for everyone.

Secondly I wanted to express my gratitude for all your work throughout your career, and particularly your tenure on Doctor Who (by far the most memorable in my book).

I am currently keeping myself entertained watching the Blu-ray box set of Doctor Who season 14, and it is bringing back the most wonderful memories for me.

Please look after yourself and take care.

Regards,

Chris Wright

I loved Dr. Who when you were the Doctor. I didn’t like those who came before you or after you. Your interpretation of the role was spectacular and no one else could match it. Forty plus years later, I still enjoy watching your episodes of Dr Who. I saw an interview where you said you liked being adored. Well, this fan does adore you and thanks you for so many years of delightful entertainment. Take care and be safe.

Dear Mr. Baker,

Happy VE Day Anniversary to one of the greatest soldiers that ever was. You've shown generations what true courage is and been a steadfast standard-bearer as we, your children, fight our own battles. In a world increasingly in the grip of cowards and bullies your influence is more important than ever, to prove that generosity, kindness, and joy will always triumph. Please take care of yourself (you are of course the best Doctor ever so that bodes well for you and lovely Sue!) Hopefully you're working on another wonderful book or two, or three! Keep smiling through ... you've still got The Smile! We've been dead jammy to have you, you know. With so much love and gratitude from Polly (12 cups of Typhoo a day) Motley xx

Hello, Tom,

I had the irreplaceable thrill of meeting you 34 years ago at a convention in Illinois. You were side by side with Colin Baker that day; I, myself was 15 years old.

I have just finished watching my DVD of “Planet of Evil,” a story which, incidentally, represented my very first introduction to “Doctor Who.” You were my first and still, to this day, my all time favorite Doctor. I continue to enjoy your ongoing contributions to Big Finish Productions, as well, and their outstanding audio range.

I want to thank you wholeheartedly, as a fan, for making my teenage years that much more fun and worthwhile. Mere words will never be enough to express the sheer joy I felt at escaping reality through this show.

I also do sincerely hope you are staying safe throughout this current worldwide COVID-19 pandemic.

Be well, sir. And thank you, once again, for everything you have given to the fans.

Dear Tom, I hope you are well and am messaging to say thank you for being for being 'my' Dr Who, and for remaining so wonderful to devoted fans like me.
You wouldn't remember, but we did actually meet once when you toured Australia in 1979. It was at the Warringah Mall shopping centre in Sydney. I was only 8 at the time, so you can imagine the impression you made on me. I still have the original autographed photo you signed for meu in my 'man-cave'.
Due this awful Corona virus thing, I, like many fellow Australians have been stuck at home in self-isolation, my movements restricted to essentials-only. As a result, I have been watching, on DVD, the 4th Doctor's adventures all over again. What has made this time especially wonderful is that my own children are sharing this experience with me. Whilst they have grown up watching the 'new' series of Dr Who, they have thoroughly enjoyed those episodes which I grew up watching as a kid. As a result, I believe we, as a family, have grown stronger despite the awful events happening around the world.
So, in summary, thank you so much for giving me, and now my children, endless hours of enjoyment. Take care and stay safe.

So your appearance has changed again, Doctor. I saw you saying Thank you in the coronavirus program. The photos on this site are way out of date. No longer are you the fat old man. You now appear thin, frail, yet closer to forty years ago in face and hair. A mere boy of, what, not even ninety yet? Still the best. Still the world's most recognisable voice.

Hello Mr. Baker,

I am writing this as I watch The Hand of Fear. Of all the Doctors that I have watched, and I have watched them all, you truly have been my favorite and recognized you from my Sinbad viewing days. The reason I am writing is because of our connection with Elisabeth Sladen. As you are my favorite Doctor, she was my favorite companion. In many ways, her connection to you is seen in the Rose/Doctor. I just wanted to say thank you 40 years of viewing pleasure.

Dear Tom,

Hope you are okay. Happy Easter. Thank you so much for being such a good doctor for the seven years you were doctor. You gave us some great stories - I am just re-watching "Genesis of the Daleks" and it is very well plotted and well acted. I also liked many of your other stories - "Horror of Fang Rock" and "Robots of Death" are very good too. Happy Easter!!!


Best wishes,

Jonathan

To Tom
(I’m not the best with words but I’ll do what I can)
I started watching Doctor Who on the eve of the 50th in 2013 so my first experience of your role was as the Curator, but I have since watched quite a few of your episodes from the classic series as well as listened to multiple Big Finish dramas with you in it.
And there’s just something about you in the role.
I do hope to one day meet you in person, though I understand full well that is difficult in these times. I hope you stay safe and wish you a happy Easter (Though I assume when you read this that shall have already passed).
Thanks for everything.

I grew up watching you play Doctor Who, I was abused as a child and your role gave me the escape into the world of imagination which saved my life and sanity. I used to write stories too which i love doing. You taught me to try and be a good person which i have always tried to be no matter my past. I have an autistic son who i try to a good father to and give him some quality of life. 3 years ago i started writing again and many of my characters try to do the right things but you have to have the bad characters as well. My writing is my escape so i can be a good father thanks to your influence- oh and Star Trek ideals as well i have to say. Thank you for inspiring my Imagination and my personal ideals.
Some of my life has been used by councilors to help others with mental illness and influenced the councilors themselves which i am very proud of. You also taught me to be open and honest, i am 53 now which i would never have reached without your influence. Thank you.

Hello Tom, I was thinking about you and felt the urge to reach out and say you're being thought of in Chicago. I hope you and your loved ones are staying safe from this terrible scourge. You stole my heart when I first laid eyes on you in 1983, and I saw you in many U.S. cities in the 80s ad 90s, and in London and Dublin stage productions in the 1980s. You are treasured, forever, by all those you have touched. Be well, cheers!!!

Dear Tom,

During this unprecedented period of self isolation we all find ourselves in, I have been recently re-watching through Classic Who & am currently on your era. It's kept me sane, amused & at some points, I can almost believe things are normal. I can never get tired of your wonderful contribution to my all time favourite show.

I have missed meeting you several times during my life (Longleat in 1983 & Cambridge in the late 90's) so am just leaving you a good will message.

I hope you are well & keeping all that is dear to you close. Please stay safe & thank you from the bottom of my heart for being my Doctor.

Warmest wishes,

James
