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.

Just finished reading a piece entitled "Tom Baker Would Consider Returning Again". Our appetites were tantalised by your role as The Curator, and to see you back again, in a more substantial role would be a dream come true, Mr Baker.

I wonder if some form of worldwide petition would put pressure to sway things in our (your MILLIONS of fans) favor?? If there isn't one already under way, there damn well should be!!!

Enjoy your brief break, Tom. Then come back and make television worth watching again, by stepping into the TARDIS one more time. PLEASE?You are one of the most lovable, warm, wonderfully animated, compassionate Gentleman this planet has ever seen. Time has not changed that, except in the 'afirmative', as your old sidekick would say.

I affectionately remember your Keep Australia Beautiful campaign adverts. The late 70s was it?

All the best,

Tony Baker (no relation, that I am aware of.......then again?)

Hello Tom!
I've always been a fan of your work on Doctor Who. You were the first Doctor I ever saw, when I first encountered the show on my local Philadelphia PBS station in 1981. I've always felt you brought a mix of humor and gravitas to the role that really was fun to watch. In later years I saw your work in other things, The Chronicles of Narnia, Randall and Hopkirk Deceased, Sinbad, Miss Marple and Monarch of the Glen. And of course your wonderful cameo in the 50th anniversary Doctor Who episode. Thanks for all the great performances! Best wishes to you Tom. And have a great summer!

I have just spent a very pleasant afternoon watching the 50th Anniversary episode of Doctor Who " The Day of the Doctor". Having grown up in the " 1970s" It was great to look back at my childhood memory's of growing up with my two favourite incarnations of Doctor Who! The one and only "Jon Pertwee" and yourself the one and only "Tom Baker"and my favourite companion the one and only Elisabeth Sladen. What a great decade to be a young child. Thanks for the very special memories. Best Wishes Susan x

Thank you for being you!!

Most Honorable Time Lord!
It is with humble heart and great admiration that I thank you for all the many gifts you have endowed upon humanity! My wish for you is that you live long and prosper in joy and happiness!
I would also love to see you in episodes like the ones mentioned in "Elizabeth from Ft Worth (who) wrote on May 25, 2017 at 4:31 am. There are many things that all your fans would love to see you do, so that they can enjoy your being a part of the worldwide family more, but the problem is that in doing so, we, though we do love and respect you, often times forget that you have a life and things that YOU want to do. May you be blest and have enjoyment and experience all the things that YOU want to do. Again, thank you for all you have done!
Your humble companion in time and space,

Dear Mr Baker,

Your autographed photo arrived today. Many thanks. I have no doubt it will be a much cherished memento for my Son. I purchased it for him, as a gift to mark his graduation, when he completes his training as a mechanical engineer in the Australian army. At his current rate, completion is expected some time around October. I wanted to mark the occasion with something special. Your personalised greeting will be the perfect gift! At 21, he has recently 'discovered' Dr Who, and now enjoys the same episodes I knew when first broadcast in the mid to late seventies. To me, your portrayal of The Doctor will always be the best. It's funny to look back at those monsters that were sooo frightening in the 1970s. No computer generation back then, but for their day they were scary. More recently, when you made a guest appearance as The Curator, it almost brought tears to my eyes, because it felt very much like a home coming. The Doctor, No. 4 was back, though it was far too brief. It did motivate me to buy some of the old episodes of your reign that I didn't already have.

Anyway, that's enough of my rambling. Many thanks for your beautifully written words to my Son, and I hope to see you back on Gallifrey in the future. If you should ever find yourself in Australia at some stage, I would very much like to shake your hand and thank you in person.

All the very best from the Baker family, Queensland, Australia!

PS: Where DID The Doctor get those Jelly Babies from?

Dear Tom

My name is Tiegan Jones. I am 14 years of age and have been a fan of Doctor Who for many years. Originally, my favourite incarnations were either the ninth Doctor(Eccleston)or the tenth doctor(Tennant)but recently I have been viewing episodes with the fourth doctor and I find that he is indeed my favourite incarnation. Your personality suits the character perfectly and this is why I adore him. Both the Doctor and yourself. Four is very different to the other Doctors. I have been wanting to tell you this and now I have had the chance to. I hope that you are well and I thank you for reading this.

I think your classic Doctor Who interpretation is, in some way, ispired by Oscar Wilde persona?

Isn'it?

Thanks

Hello Mr. Baker (or should I say Doctor!)

I know you are so much more than The Doctor, but that is how I first saw you. I caught reruns of Doctor Who and it was you. I never watched any other Doctor (although a good friend of mine's mother got to go to the UK and meet the third Doctor in the 80's). When the series restarted I wouldn't even watch it because it wasn't you (I finally did an it's not half bad 😉 ). It was nice to see Sarah Jane again.
I have always hoped I would meet you one day, and when you appeared on the Day of the Doctor, I was excited and thought you might be doing conventions. I just got your book "Who on Earth is Tom Baker?" and am excited to learn how you became who your are.
I hope you are well and thank you for bringing the Doctor to life for me.
Best,
Angie

Dear Mr. Baker,
I've just found your Facebook Page and left a Message under Your Last Birthday Post and hope you get to see it? Otherwise, I shall need retyping here to tell of Your Wonderful Impact on my childhood Years!! Through to Current Ones and 3Generations Hearts You've Won! I'm just wondering: Saw in Dr Who Special You were the Museum Curator & All of Us Smiled with hearts leaping with joy!! Wondering: Remember the Episode of "The Leisure Hive" & made You Grow Older? Why can't "Some thing be Off in Time related to or Timelines and Has Aged You to Star Currently Another Special, Peter Davidson, and Several Drs? Tennant looks about Same & Smith-So YOU COME UP WITH STORY AND WE SHALL ENJOY THE PUZZLING TIME RIFF caused Certain Drs to Age & Others in Current States?! Plus, to boot: HOW ABOUT GRABBING SEAN PERTWEE & let him Have the Tribute Role of His Father?! That would give Dr Who Fans the ability to See More than Shadows supposed to be All-By getting to See MANY OF "OUR DOCTORS" and their faces & Costumes? Perhaps Romana -who had to have Regenerated several times by now, comes back from E Space in the Tardis K9 had memorized plans of-but having been damaged, forgot 1 detail which causes trouble Accidentally in Time Winds? You do not need Post this!!! Just desire ANOTHER SPECIAL OR MORE YOU PLACING HAT & SCARF ON! Are there Leisure Hive Later effects? Or Romana going from E Space Back to N Space or?? I like the Time Winds-they Could best alter things. If you get Stuck in CURRENT AGES DUE TO: MORE VIEWING FOR FANS! Throw to David Walliams & he's a Mega Fan- he will know what to come up with and just hope You, Davidson, Tennant, Smith & Capoldi & If can get Eccleson on board are up to trying? A Fan can dream, Right? Something dangerous and puzzling might've not only caused Some of Your Timelines to Age, But followed thru piggyback on Romana's Tardis?! Oh, I hope can be so! Heaps of love and thank you for Decades of WONDERFUL MEMORIES AND STILL GOING!!!

Mr.Baker,
I have been a who fan for some time now and when I found out I could leave you a message I knew I had to. The original first 4 Doctors are my favorite! The forth Doctor was amazing! I plan on starting the Big Finish audio stories soon. You put so much life into your character's and that's what makes all of them so special. You were right about being the "Definite article". My dad says I shouldn't be living in the twenty first century and I believe him. All my favorite actors, shows, songs, movies, and my first car are from the 60's- 80's (He also says I act like someone from those eras as well). Hope you have a wonderful break from signing and who knows maybe one day we will have the opportunity to meet each other.

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...

Terence Higgs from Salisbury, Adelaide, South Australia wrote on May 15, 2017 at 7:53 am:
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
