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 have a story that Tom Baker really ought to know of. When I was about thirteen years old, the school I attended organized a field trip where everyone of that age would be loaded onto buses , taken to a movie theatre and shown Nicholas and Alexandria. On the return trip, the conversation on the bus I was on was dominated by comments such as "What about that guy who played Rasputin?" "Wasn't that guy who played Rasputin a great actor?" "That Rasputin guy did such a great job." etc. etc.

I had never heard people of such an age, my age, talk about an actor so much before which is probably why it stuck with me the way it did. They were very impressed with you and being American of course at that point had never heard of Dr. Who.

I loved your portrayal of Dr. Who as well; best Dr. ever!

Dear Tom,

I met you yesterday at the Signing Spectacular in Richmond yesterday and I was so star struck at meeting my childhood hero I couldn’t really say anything. So I’d like to take this opportunity to say a warmest, most heart felt thank you for all the joy, happiness and laughter you’ve brought to not only my life, but to countless other people as well.

Best wishes, and again, thank you!

So very sorry for yet "another Dr Who message" but just wanted you to know, as we all get older, you were, and always will, be my hero. At the age of 14 back in the 70's I dressed as you did in your role as Dr Who, on a procession on a lorry in a town called West Bromwich. The most important part I took on was not just the hat, the long scarf, and a wig, and being "Dr Who" Tom Baker style, it was a role where I got to be different and SHOW that I was different also, because I was Gay, and nobody knew, and that was when I knew my life could and would be different. Thank you Mr Baker for helping me without knowing it. Peter.

Hi Tom , I will be seeing you, and having a photograph taken with you at The Signing Spectacular at Richmond Surrey on 13 July. Also I will be married by then to John Webberley ,who is attending with me (so I will no longer be Gwyneth Bland). Looking forward to seeing you ,after all those years. See you soon.

Hello Tom,

I was thinking of you today, and want you to know you are NEVER forgotten by those of us who have followed you and cared for you lo these many decades. i saw you in Chicago, Boston, Philadelphia, and San Jose; and in London and Dublin in "She Stoops to Conquer," "An Inspector Calls," and "The Mask of Moriarty." I will never forget your kindness in treating me and my traveling companion to tea at the National Theatre, and discreetly seeing that I got a taxi one evening in London when I was out alone. These are cherished memories of a true gentleman. I thank you with all my heart.

Dear sir, I am not the sort of person who writes fan letters although I have been a fan of yours since I saw you in The Golden Voyage of Sinbad when I was a child. However, you did ask for comments in The Boy Who Kicked Pigs. I feel that I must tell you how much I enjoyed it. The first chapter has become my go-to source of comfort and cheer when I am feeling sad or the arthritis pain becomes too intense. You have a wonderful wicked sense of humor and a biting wit that is sheer joy. It would have been a lovely book to have 45 years ago, when I genuinely needed such a joyous subversive to give me sound advice. Scratchman is on my must read list for my next pension check. My mad money shall be well-spent in July. Thank you so much for sharing your wonderful gift with the rest of the world. You are a brilliant writer. I unabashedly love you, and not in a creepy stalker way. Oh, and by the way, my titties tingled too. 😉

Was just watching The Ark in Space, on Pluto TV. I'm 42 and absolutely loved watching as a kid in the 1990s when your episodes we're on! How time flies by...

Best wishes to you in your future plans, best Dr Who.

Dear Mr Baker

I cannot tell you how much joy your acting has given over the years. Obviously my favourite is Doctor Who, but you were wonderful in Miss Marple, Towards Zero, just not enough of you in the episode. Also your Rasputin was fantastic. Regrettably I never got the chance to go and see you in the theatre, but I do have your autobiography and CD version of The Boy Who Kicked Pigs. I probably sound very shallow but you are an inspiration and very beautiful man and wow what a voice. Thank you for all the wonderful years of joy.

Dear Tom,

I recently asked my local library to buy Scratchman. They did, and I am so happy. I finished reading your book today. I love it. You, the Doctor of my youth those decades ago, bring that Doctor and his world to life again.

You depict the Doctor, Sarah and Harry so incredibly well. I could hear and see them as I eagerly turned the pages of your book, reading a few chapters each night before I fell asleep wondering if I would dream a Doctor Who adventure. I won't describe specific passages in your story since not everyone has read it yet, but there were parts which had me on the brink of tears, and moments later laughing out loud.

Powerful stuff. Great writing. Tom, thank you.

Yours sincerely,

Robert Johannessen

Tom,

Wanted to let you know of the happiness you have brought me over the years. I grew up watching Dr. Who on PBS in the states, and always enjoyed your stories the most. Your wit and joyful zaniness was the high point of my week, watching late on Sunday night. I thought my parents didn't know I was staying up extra late to watch, but the truth is that they knew, but let me do it.

Now I watch your episodes with my 11 year old, and he loves you too. I let him stay up past regular bedtime, but I watch with him. I enjoy it just as much as I did over 30 years ago.

My love and best wishes to you. Hope you are enjoying yourself as much as we have enjoyed your work.

Yours,
Eric

Hi Tom, I have been a fan of yours for years. Your Autobiography is very informative and with your wicked sense of humor it is the best book I have read for years!I have purchased your new book and have a book plate from you. I look forward to reading it on Holiday. I look forward to meeting you one day but for now I would like to thank you for the pleasure you have given me over the years, and you still make me smile when ever I see or hear you on TV or Radio.

Best wishes,

Gary.

Mr. Baker,

I just finished reading your book, "Scratchman". It was one of those rare instances where I started reading a book and couldn't really put it down.

It was a truly marvelous book, and one that helped to remind me of my brother. He was a massive fan of science fiction, specifically Doctor Who and, in trying to get me interested, introduced me to your Doctor. Sadly, he passed away a couple of years ago but I know, if given the opportunity, he would have read and enjoyed your book as much as I did if not more so.

Thank you for creating this wonderful tale, and I look forward to your next story, hopefully very soon.

Dear Mr. Baker,
I just found a book of stamps which belonged to my grandfather, then to my father. The stamps date from the 1800s through the 1960s. On a back page, there are several autographs on pieces of paper. One is yours. My grandfather, Frank Reitman, was born in 1896, and passed away in 1983. My dad, 1923-2019 (this past March.). Grandpa owned a cab and chauffeured a number of well-known people: Jack Dempsey, Eleanor Roosevelt and, perhaps, you. I’d be happy to send you a photo of your autograph, and perhaps a photo of my grandpa. He was one of the most temperate gentlemen ever to walk the earth: a quiet, dignified and memorable man.

I do hope you receive this missive, and would be delighted to hear from you.

All my very best,
Lisa Reitman

Tom Baker really suits the role of Dr. Who. He can be friendly but also a bit scary. His curly hair and wide eyes are very memorable.

Good job Tom Baker.

Mr. Baker - This message is about forty years in the making, so forgive me for the delay in sending it. As a child growing up in the suburbs of Chicago, one of the best memories I have of time with my dad was watching a trio of programs on WTTW, the local public broadcasting station. 10 pm meant "Monty Python," 10:30 was "Dave Allen At Large" - and then, at 11, I waited to hear that welcoming theme music that signified "Doctor Who" was on again. For my father (as well as myself), you have always been the definitive Doctor (though I admit I've yet to watch the newer series). Dad passed away a year ago, and I have found the best way to honor his memory has been to watch episodes from your time as Doctor Who - and, dear sir, it has been exactly what the doctor (or is that "The Doctor"?) ordered to help with the emotions that precede the sad anniversary.

Thank you for all the years of great memories - not only on my behalf, but also on my dad's. I only wish he had been able to convey his gratitude to you himself. Wishing you continued good health and happiness.

Hello Tom,
Firstly, like many of my fellow fans, I hope you are doing well. Secondly, I would just like to say thank you. Thank you for being pretty much the essential version of the Doctor; easily recognizable, very likable, quirky yet grounded, and basically fun all around. Thank you for sticking around and doing more Doctor Who for Big Finish (loved The Trouble With Drax and The Crooked Man) and literature (finished Scratchman a few days ago. Marvelous work! So glad I got the bookplate to go with it!). Thank you for laying your heart bare before your fans in both your autobiography (which, while outdated, still feels very raw and personal) and your interview with Nicholas Briggs for "Tom Baker at 80" (a very touching session). I feel like I know you both as the Doctor and as Tom Baker. I see myself in both of you, and I hope to become more like you; kind, caring, funny, the list of quirks is endless. I may not have been around when you hit television screens everywhere from Britain to America, but I am still, from now until...well, until I pass, a massive fan of yours. So, thank you for having that much of an impact on me and millions of people everywhere.
Wishing you well from America,
Tyler "Trademark" McBee
