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.

I know that it is shocking, but even though I am a big Doctor Who fan, I have never seen a Fourth Doctor episode. In fact, my major exposure to your acting is Little Britain! However, that doesn't mean that I haven't read or seen your many interviews over the years, and am quite taken with you as a human being!

My hope is that I can experience your work as an artist first, and as the Fourth Doctor second, so that I can understand fully what you brought (and still bring) to the role. I look forward to navigating the site to find these roles you have given life to, and then circling back to the Doctor.

I know you don't answer questions, but if anyone can guide me to Tom's favourite role, it would be smashing!

Dear Tom, I'm not sure you know who Stan Lee is but he was a comic guy (ie comic book writer/illustrator) who was much loved and has just passed away and is much missed by the comic book community, you being in the twilight of your life are just as much loved by me and the doctor who community, no I have never met you, I have 4 autographs by you and more importantly great memories of you, liz and Phil Hinch's work together, I have just read that you have done a ton more audios for "Big Finish" and for that I'll be forever grateful and before "I Pop my Clogs" let me just say again thanks for you being You. Love and hugs Rollo xx

As with so many other I would like to say thank you for not only the Joy that you have brought me through the years but on behalf of my children who have in turn grown up watching The Definitive Doctor.

You have touched the hearts and minds of so many.

BRAVO and Thank you.

You were my dad's doctor when he was growing up and he did and still does delight in rewatching your adventures with me. Your eccentricity and wit, as well as your good-naturedness and warmth, have made you something of a role-model of character for us both to aspire to.

For this i cannot thank you enough

I what form of media it may be, please continue doing this for others as you have for us

All the best,

Jake

i have always been a huge fan of doctor who and always into acting but i could never find a character i liked to ply until started pretending to be your version of the doctor and i loved doing that! and after that i realised that, acting is just pretending for an audience and that mad me get so much more passionate about acting and i found it so much fun all the time

You are THE doctor! I just bought the blu ray edition of the first season. It's great to relive the time I spent watching you on Chicago Public TV. At the time I was in a very challenging graduate school program- Dr Who (and you) let me get away for a while from the stress. Thank you so much!
Lucy La Hurreau from Hamilton wrote on October 13, 2018 at 8:06 pm:
Thank you for being. I have watched the Doctor and many of the other programs you've acted in and enjoyed it. I think, next to Dr. Who, one of my favorite characters was the curmudgeon, Donald McDonald, on Monarch of the Glen.

I get excited seeing you as the caretaker now that the NuWho have arrived, but still watch the Classic Who because you and your fellow actors made it so great.

Thank you. I've a feeling you will never see this, but again, Thank you!!

Mr. Baker, When I was a boy growing up in the US, I stumbled upon Doctor Who quite by accident on KTEH in San Jose. My brother and father could not make sense of the show (It was "Ark in Space"). Who was the main character? The hero? We had, alas, American sensibilities of a hero being a chiseled chin, knuckle dragger and not someone who had wit. Yet it was you in brought us into the world of Who. You were my first Doctor and will alway be My Doctor. You taught, back then, an awkward boy the power of wild goodness, standing out from the crowd for the purpose of doing what was right, and the power of being clever. Thank you! I have followed your career since then (especially in regards to Big Finish) and I am delighted by what you continue to bring with every new role (For example, my daughter had read "Treasure Island" and has enjoyed your BF performance). I would like to say, "Thank you for being awesome!" However, I'd just be brief: thank you for being Tom. The world needs Tom Baker.

Can't wait for the new Doctor, Jodie W. But Tom Baker will always be my fav! Just saw The Day of the Doctor & so happy to see Tom at the end, his wonderful voice & wit, brings me tears & fond memories of watching Tom during my high school years! Just think, dear Tom, there's female Doctor! And when the Universe needs powerful women!

Greetings and salutations from sunny Florida. Just wanted you to know you were by far the best Doctor of all. I rember the first time I saw Doctor Who on PBS in 1981. I was hooked from the get go. Hope you are doing well and know you will always be The Doctor to me (though David Tennant is a close second).

Sincerely,

David Addington

Why did it take me this long to find your website and post my lifelong love admiration for you thru Dr. Who and thinking of you as the neatest person & actor one of the coolest best?

Maybe because I'm an older settled WOC and have more time through the internet to actually find and contact directly people/performers who've I've admired for ages but never felt the urge to join fandom groups or sites, nor had $ or ability to see/meet.

Anyway, I was a Pertwee fan who wholly fell for you & your personification of Dr.Who as I was 10-16yo during your reign 76-82?, and I wore long scarves and silly hats in mimic and honoring. I love your laugh, smile and mischievous grins and eyes. When I visited England in '84 I stopped by a Dr.Who shop and STILL have the pen/pencil coin box mini tin PoliceBox with your image as the Dr. painted on one side. Karma blessings, from a fellow Aquarian, with you struck a nerve of fun, joy.

I stumbled across this site quite by accident and how delighted I am that perhaps Tom may read this entry. I started watching Dr Who in the very late 1970's when I was out of the US Army. Of course it was Tom Baker and I watched ever episode for years until it fell off of the local public TV sometime in the 1980's. I was thrilled when the new Dr Who came out in the 21st Century but it just was not the same. I realized just like Captain Kirk or Spock, Darth Vader or Hans Solo, you simply can not replace the best Dr there was. You set the bar, you made the part, you are and always will be Dr Who to millions of us.
Phil Allen from phoenix wrote on October 2, 2018 at 11:41 pm:
Maybe it's the "red balloon" syndrome (just hatched fixes on first thing sees as "mother"), but Tom Baker will always be Dr. Who to me. However, am glad that a woman is now being cast.

Hi Tom,
I just wanted to say thank you for being a fun part of my childhood. I've been suffering from PTSD for the last twenty years or so and have found that one of the many problems associated with the disorder is the loss of good memories. My current therapist encouraged me to make a list of the happy elements of my life and in doing so try to enjoy them again. Hence my writing you. Your portrayal of the good Doctor was incredible. Hiding behind the sofa with my brother during the scary bits was wonderful. I thank you. Hope life is treating you well.

Hi Tom. I worked with you many years ago at The Westminster Theatre. I was ASM on An Inspector Calls. At that time you were reading Conrad and we had lots of discussions about 19th century literature. You encouraged me to go back into learning and inspired me to an OU degree in English literature. It changed my life. I teach English and love my job. Thank you for your inspiration. Jane Alsop (was Frost) x

Just pausing a moment to say thank you for all of the body of work that you have accomplished. I have seen a great deal of it and am reminded of a person who embodies both the idea of a Renaissance noble and a Picasso, who has been brave enough to share his talents with the rest of us. Thank You.

Dear Mr. Baker,

About some time last month I bought the Blu-Ray Disc put out of your first season as the Doctor and I must say I was fairly pleased with the picture quality and all the bonus content including my favorite aside from your interview of course is the Behind the Sofa when you watch all theses episodes with Phillip Hinchcliffe and Elizabeth Sladens daughter Sadie Miller. It was a joy to see your reactions and also that you remember a lot about the production and actors and actresses you were onscreen with. Hopefully they may do more seasons of your series on Blu-Ray Disc. Have a blessed day and hopefully I can meet you if you ever come to Orlando, Fl or the USA for a sci=fi convention because I'd love to have your autographs and the DVD's and Blu-Ray copies of some of your episodes I have copies of.

Hola, O bright and sunny one!

Seeing as it is springtime around here and most people are in winter hibernation mode, re-watching your episodes is a welcome chance of seeing non-black clothing around 🙂

The kids (who're watching it all for the first time) are just as happy to see you as I am, at times rolling down to the floor with laughter. "Doctor, you're too late. - I can't be!", indeed. Never too late, you are...

Hi Tom
So nice that you took some of time to talk to me about our dogs outside Waitrose, the other day. My wife and I think Poppy is also adorable having seen the pictures on your website.
I am writer and I really couldn’t get any work done on my new novel when I got back home having been spotted talking to you by friends. So, you can guess the Facebook traffic afterwards.
Regards
David

I would Love to sit and have a drink with you someday. You provided such a wonder journey for us all and to meet the man himself would make me feel like I was a part of your ( the Doctors ) many stops. I became an actor 4 yrs ago and have been in a bunch of things myself ( Alita Battle Angel out Dec18 is the biggest so far ) but, I'd love to do a skit you you too.

I had my Dr Who monster book signed by Tom in Dartford WHS 1975 at a guess. I often see Tom in our local supermarket and would love to say hello but have not yet had the courage.
Tom, Pyramids of Mars is as great now as back in 1975!
Alison Fairclough from Wallace, Victoria, Australia wrote on September 9, 2018 at 1:53 am:
Dearest Mr Baker,

I just want to say a huge thank you for being my first doctor. I had hoped one day to be able to meet you but alas while I was growing up in England I was still far too shy to attend conventions.

However, you were instrumental in me finding a soulmate through the power of Doctor Who who took me to Australia and helped bring out my confidence so that I have since managed to go out and meet like minded people in the world of sci fi, and especially doctor who.
In fact it's because of actors like yourself I have dared to dream and some of these dreams have actually come true.
You were one of my very first inspirations and for that I will always be very grateful.

I am currently working on a cross stitch of yourself. If I get chance I would love to be able to send it out to you to take a look at at and I will gladly pay postage to and from the UK. Or maybe I could send you a photo of the finished product if that would be ok to autograph.

By the way, I thoroughly enjoyed your recent interviews on your newly release box set of your very first season of Doctor Who.

I wish you all the best Mr Baker and again, many many thanks for making my childhood great.

Alison

Dear tom thank you for making my child hood a world of wonder and amazement watching you on tv as doctor who in england as a child, has always stuck with me, my entire life, the memory of being so scared and on the edge of my seat, then waiting for the next episode, through acting you have made so many life richer.
Thank you mate.

Love you Tom! When I was a little boy, my grandmother and I would watch Dr. Who reruns at night here in America. This is one of my fondest memories and I just want to thank you for all the work you put into being the Doctor.
