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!
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.
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.
I'm a relatively new Doctor Who fan, but I was never able to watch your contribution till recently. I appreciate what you and the other regenerations of The Doctor brought to this series. Thank you fort the hard work! And I hope you and your family are doing well.
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.
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
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.
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
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.
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.
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.
i my come to see you one day you are a rolemodle for me i have a friend her name is romana we love your role as the doctor thank you doctor the 4th doctor my costume is completely accurate see you in time space the doctor
Just wanted to say thanks again for the many years of fantastic entertainment and joy your works have brought both me and my family.
I hope you are well, and I expect you are staying safely away from people so not to catch the virus.
I go walking in a local park for exercise, and indoors I have been trying to get My Life Story written ,so hopefully I will get it printed one day.
I hope both you & Sue stay well. God Bless, your friend as always Gwyneth
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!!!
"Doctor Who" "The Edge of time"
(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.
- Harry Duncan
Hope you are keeping well especially in the present climate.
Please please keep safe until a vascine becomes available.
Your a true gentleman who has entertained millions on and off the screen.
Take care of yourself Doctor.
All the best
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.
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.
Hope you have a big supply of jelly babies to last the lockdown!
