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.

I hope that Mr. Baker gets this message, which perhaps he has heard a thousand times. My sister, Holly, and I have adored, loved and cared for Tom for many decades. We both have affections for The Doctor, however, My favourite all around performance was Распутин (Rasputin). Time and space did not allow for us to ever meet Tom in the physical, nor does money allow for autographs. However, we hope he is happy, well and loved. He may not get this message, but I had to at least try. - Marie, and Holly.

Hello Tom
I just wanted to that although Jon was my first dr. You will always be my favourite dr. Thanks for making Saturday nights great.

Just wanted to share with everyone how much I loved the «Scratchman» audiobook. A very fun and -yes- even touching performance that took me back decades ago (ok, the very early 80s) when I was watching Dr Who reruns on PBS and TVO. Except that this time, my grasp of British English is much better (being French Canadian and all)!

Thank you Mr. Baker. I wish you well. Thanks for sharing your talent with us. And thanks again for the two autographed pictures. My wife and I love the one with your cats!

Greetings Tom,
I am hoping you will be making a convention appearance in London during 2020. I would very much like to meet you in person having been a fan since the late 1970s. Have been enjoying all the stuff I sent in to have you sign a few years ago. You'll always be my fave!

Dear Mr. Baker,
I've just finished listening to your reading of "Scratchman" and quite enjoyed it. Takes me back 40 years when I first discovered Dr. Who with "Ark in Space" and I got hooked. I've always had a special fondness for the Doctor, Sarah Jane, and Harry team. Your voice still has the resonance that it did all those years ago and it is a joy to listen to. I'm also a devoted listener to the Big Finish audios, and enjoy the stories as I pop them in to the CD player on the commute to and from work. I get so involved in the stories that I hope for extra heavy traffic so that I can hear the stories in their entirety.
Hope you keep going with the audios, I look forward to every new adventure.
Sincerely,
Edward Mittelsteadt

Dear Tom Baker,

When I was a teenager in Boston, the local PBS station ran your first few seasons five days a week, over and over (Robot to Invasion of Time) for about six years. I think I missed maybe 12 airings altogether. This was long before the Internet, so that was it--those four seasons, over and over. A lot of actors can do a good performance. But it takes real skill to hand in a performance that's still fresh and enjoyable on the sixth or seventh time through.
I hope you make it to America again soon for one of the conventions. Specifically, one in New York, but I realize you have a lot of things on your plate. I wish they still had an address for fans to send you letters, rather than these typed nothings. Anyone can type a fan letter; it takes real effort to put it all down on paper and find a stamp and mail it in.
Anyway, I'd also like to thank you for that cameo in Day of the Doctor. You are the best.

Dear Mr. BAKER,
Thank you for your autograph. You were my first Doctor and the best one. I lost my sister Yvette, but I will always remember the many evenings that she and I would sit together and watch your episodes.
I know you have done much more than Doctor Who, but you and the role you had allowed me to spend many happy days in fellowship with sister. I wish to bless you and your family. If God wills I will see you one day, even though I live in America. Please consider going to one of our conventions.
You are a blessing to me forever.
Sincerely and with love and eternal gratitude, your friend, Harry Mckinney

Whenever I see or think of my childhood I think of Tom Baker as the Doctor. I have such lovely and fond memories of watching him on Saturday mornings on PBS. Those memories are priceless and I think him for being a part of those memories. For me, Tom is the ONLY Doctor!!! Love from North Carolina, USA

Hi Tom,

You have always been my favourite Doctor as your humour just made it that much more enjoyable for me to watch Doctor Who as a child (that and your Jelly Babies) and you still make me laugh just as much all these years later.

One of my earliest memories of watching Doctor Who is from around age 5 when a colleague of my mathematician father had come to visit and watched "Revenge of the Cybermen" with me one night. The next day he woke up to find one of my teddy bears in his bed and as it hadn't been there when he went to sleep he spoke to my parents about it who then questioned me. I told them that I had put it there in the middle of the night because Angus' wife, Barbara, wasn't with him that trip and I had gotten worried he might be lonely and scared. They said he of course missed Barbara very much but didn't understand why I thought Angus would be scared and I told them it was because of how scary the Cybermen and their pet Cybermats had been in the episode we had watched together. I remember we were sat on the sofa together and he put his arm around me when I got scared. I wasn't scared once I went to bed as I had all my teddy bears to keep me safe and I just wanted him to have one too.

Years later I found out the reason Barbara hadn't come with Angus for the first time ever was because she had passed away. My parents just hadn't wanted to tell me.

Thank you for being exactly who you are and for your ability to entertain me both as a child and an adult. ❤️

Mr. Baker,

I am sure you've heard this before but you are one of two of my sons and my favorite Doctors.The other being John Pertwee. As I write this we are binge watching your episodes. We both want to thank you for these hours and weeks of enjoyment. He and I bond over our Who mania and you are a big part of that.

May you enjoy good health and continued longevity.

I recently celebrated my sixty third birthday,and my adorable,daughters birthday,that follows my own by a day.
Somehow she found a forty year old Dr. Who fan magazine,and pointedly told me. That it was the same age as she is. I must say they are both beautiful and remarkably well preserved. I cherish this time traveler, and will of course have it suitably framed.
Thank you Doctor for all the wonderful adventures and insights about how to be a truly Human being.

I had the pleasure of meeting Tom Baker in St. Louis . . . it would have been Spring 1984. Ah, what an adventure that was!

I enjoy browsing through dictionaries, too . . . still trying to track down an elusive one that has blue-foil thumb tabs.

Thank you Tom for your efforts in bringing Doctor Who alive. I enjoyed the show as a child and continue to do so now as a senior citizen. My fascination with the show has grown - inspiring me to join the Doctor Who Society of Canada, to build Dalek KaiKor and to begin attending Comic Cons as the 4th Doctor.

Thank you
Bill Bill from New Jersey wrote on October 12, 2019 at 11:52 pm:
Tom, just wanted to say thanks for so many great performances over the years, and especially for the 4th Doctor, my favorite since childhood! During a period of recent unemployment I listened to your many BBC and Big Finish audio performances, which were filled with integrity, wit, boldness, and fun.
I must say that helped me to keep my spirits up and boost my morale until steady work and a better career could be embarked upon. Facing adversity by tweaking it in the proverbial nose was something I think I learned from the good Doctor. Keep that twinkle in your eyes! Many thanks.

Sincerely yours,
Bill

Dear Tom,
You were my favorite Doctor when I was 12, and remain so today.
I just finished listening to you reading your book Scratchman and what a marvelous time I had. What really comes through, and makes my heart smile, is your obvious affection for Lis Sladen and Ian Marter, your insightful thoughts about the character, the show, and about life itself. Thank you for that, and for what remains some of the best, most magical and unique moments ever broadcast on television. I wish you all the best.

Hi Tom,
I've just sent in an order and am sending you a pic to autograph. just wanted to say thanks in advance for that. I really appreciate that you provide this service. when I was a kid growing up here in Indiana, I discovered Doctor Who on PBS. it was just so fantastic watching you in your adventures as The Doctor. now, of course, I'm much older and unfortunately live in pain, but when I watch you in the old episodes, I can forget all that, and just be that kid again. so, I just wanted to thank you for that.

wish that I could get to meet you, but doesn't seem likely now, so getting you to sign the pic that I've sent, will be the next best thing. so thanks again, I'm looking forward to getting it. and big thanks for doing all the Big Finish audios, so great that you're still giving us new adventures.

Sincerely,
John Stanley

Dear Tom,

As a relatively new fan to Doctor Who by comparison of many others out in the world, I can say with absolute faith that having seen all of the Classic series (which was a rather massive undertaking considering how long you were in the part of The Doctor) that I can completely understand why you became and still are the face of Doctor Who.

You're still a highlight among the great actors who have stepped into the role as The Doctor and an inspiration for a writer such as myself with your charming and delightful performances.

Wishing you in good health. Love from Harley.

Hi Tom
I have been a fan of yours since my dad sat me down to watch the classic Dr who when I was 5 years old and I am 15 now.
It was through my dad's love of doctor who that I now follow in his footsteps but it is because of you and the other amazing actors from doctor who, that got me into collecting doctor who memorabilia, I am now the current Guinness world record holder for most Dr who memorabilia.
I owe you so much for inspiring me to achieve this...SO THANK YOU MR BAKER XXX.
I have tried to get to see you at signings in London but my dad has been too ill we had to miss you last weekend, I will however keep a look out on your next signings and will try my very best to meet you in person, that is my dream 😁 and thank you for everything you have done in the making of. The best program on t.v and in history.
Please take care, be happy and be nice to jelly babies

Dear Mr Baker,

My mum watched you as the 4th Doctor when she was younger and now you're my favourite after I saw Genesis Of The Daleks. I have been a fan of yours ever since then and I love your famous quote "There's no point being grown up if you can't be childish sometimes".

I've also enjoyed the other roles you've played as Rasputin, Prince Koura in the Golden Voyage of Sinbad and as the narrator of Little Britain. I look forward to finding more that you've done and reading Scratchman of course.

Thank you for all that you've done and continue to do.

With best regards, your Australian fan Jaidyn.

Hello! I've been watching Doctor Who since early elementary school (at least 37 years ago) and you, by far, are my FAVORITE Doctor!!! You were my first Doctor and when I run into a "Whovian" I always mention you and have fond memories of watching you Saturday afternoons.
Doctor Who has been a big part of my life. This may sound strange but it's true: I've survived some traumatic events and one of the only things that calms me down from anxiety is listening to soundtracks from Classic Doctor Who.
I love music in general but those tracks are the ones that work the fastest!
Lastly I wanted to share a fun fact. You and my mom are only a few days apart in age--born in the same month in the same year but in two different parts of the world! I greatly appreciate your work over the years bringing joy to many!! Take care!

I have finished reading you Scratchman book, that I received for my birthday. I felt, when completing it, it was a love letter to your fans. I have a lovely long letter from you written in the mid 80's, when I missed the convention and sent you a note and a small libation. It was my only fan letter ever and you were so kind as to reply with a letter and some Dr. Who memorabilia. I still have that letter in my keepsake box. It, and your book, are lovely and deeply appreciated. As is your Doctor. Keep well.

I finished a walk from Hastings at Rye on Saturday, where I was amazed to see Tom Baker coming towards me along the pavement, as I had no idea he lived there. As someone who has watched Doctor Who since the start in 1963, you will understand that this was the high spot of my day! As I was with a group and he was clearly on his way somewhere, I didn't think to interrupt him, but I would have said that he has given me much viewing pleasure over the years and I still watch his wonderful Doctor Who episodes.
