The 4th doctor will go down as the best
personality in WHO history. Thanks for
sparking my interest in time travel and science. I hope to travel to London in the next couple of years and meet you. Thanks
for all the child hood memories and I'm
looking forward to viewing my
pre-purchased DVD from Amazon of the NEW "Shada"...
Very Exciting, Thanks Tom.

I was just perusing the net as I was listening to the Audio "The Gallery of Ghouls" and my eyes went saucer wide when I saw you were in Dungeons and Dragons! OMG! That's just overwhelmingly awesome! (yes, I'm a nerd who actually likes the AD&D stuff - I used to watch the animation of Dungeons and Dragons as a kid)

Thank you for all your hard work and all the joyous stories I get to listen to.

Dear Tom

Thank you for giving us years of entertainment as an actor! As a kid my Sister & I used to hide behind the sofa when Doctor Who came on our TV, then we'd venture out to watch you in action (we were scared of the dalek's & cyber men).

I've been lucky enough to meet you several times when I worked in your local Tesco years ago & I recall us chatting about places you visited & your love of Sushi if I remember correctly.
If we didn't have the fruit & veg you were wanting you'd make our staff & customers laugh by 'politely' saying to us (in your commanding voice) that your friends the dalek's will pay us a visit.

I now work in your local British Heart Foundation shop where you ever so kindly signed one of Doctor Who books for one of our customers recently. 'Thank you for doing that Tom'.

Best wishes
Martin Reeves

Hello, I just want to say that you were the Doctor that my mum grew up with when she still lived in the USA. Now, I've never seen any of the Classic Doctor Who episodes, but after watching some clips from the official Doctor Who YouTube channel, I now understand why everyone still remember you to this day. I even pay tribute to you by having one of the costumes that Penelope Bunny (One of my characters from a series I created called Adventures in the Cartoon World) wears based on the clothes the Fourth Doctor wore. Thank you.

Thinking of you today because I found that a new friend is a Dr. Who fan, and your name came up (of course). That sent me to my photo albums, and THAT set me to reminiscing about all the times i got to see you in the U.S., in two plays in London, and one in Dublin. Such wonderful memories. Please know you are always adored, never forgotten, and a permanent source of joy to all of us out here....much love and best wishes to you.

Just finished re-watching "The Vault of Horror" (1973). Segment 5 "Drawn and Quartered" in which you played "Moore" was a true pleasure to watch, you gave (as always) a winning performance. Sir, you are a true artist and a master of the "Craft" of acting.

Dear Mr. Baker,
Thank you for being such a great person and actor for your Doctor role. I have seen every episode since the beginning and I believe you are the pivotal point for making it last.
I'm write your guestbook entry for an invitation to our wedding because you are an inspiration to me.
Even though the event is arriving soon, I wanted to invite you.

Dear Tom,
It’s 40 years ago this very day that my mum took me to Gloucester to meet you at Merrett’s Book Shop. I was a very excited teenager and it was such a thrill to meet you. You were so kind and chatty to everyone despite clearly having a heavy cold. I was only able to see you because our school was closed to 5th and 6th formers to save heating fuel as the tanker drivers were on strike!!
You chatted to both me and my mum like an old friend and signed a book each for us. I still have the books and my mum and I looked at them today recalled that special time with you.
Thank you for being my teenage hero. I lived for Saturday tea times to see you fighting for good through the universe. Meeting my hero was a red letter day for me
Thank you!
Happy Days
John Martin

Hi, Tom. I left this message on your Facebook page but want to have the best chance of you seeing it so I'm sending it here, too.

A belated and very early Happy Christmas and many happy new years to you, Tom. I listened to you read your autobiography, and just wanted to tell you what a sweet, inspiring man and hero you are to so many, myself most definitely included.

As someone who was likewise not always treated kindly growing up, I can resonate to the effect that can have on a person. It is important to know that those feelings of self-loathing and inadequacy are not true, and when we feel them we must think of something or someone we love, and use the subsequent elation to reconnect with the love we have for ourselves, however off the track and in the bushes it might be when we have to go look for it.

You are my favorite Doctor. The warmth you felt when that boy who had been in his own little world for years threw his arms around you in the children's hospital when you visited as The Doctor, and all the other times since you have warmed hearts and thrilled minds...that is real. That is who you are. Go to that place whenever you feel down and remember it is you who made people feel good, because just playing The Doctor is not what warms hearts. It is the man who makes The Doctor. Doctor Who is not an inspirational force for good simply as the shell that any actor can inhabit. It is the man who inhabits him, who channels him from the myriad worlds in the multiverse where he is actually traipsing around time and space, who makes The Doctor special. You are a man like no other who has become him, and who always was even before you donned the hat and scarf. You are a warm, funny, wonderful adventurer whose good humor is not only infectious but a balm to any who have the pleasure of your company or see you in any role.

Anyone who knows you should consider it an honor to be your friend, and that includes yourself. You are your best friend. We all are to ourselves, regardless of those who may make us think and feel otherwise.

Thank you for sharing your essence with the world. I hope to be able to thank you in person someday. All the best. Be Well. Be Happy. 🙂

Dear Mr. Baker,
I have been a fan of yours for a long time. My brothers and my Mom and my cousin and I used to watch Dr Who on Saturday night . I can remember when my Brother Tommy lived up North and I still lived in the South. I was living at my Moms along with my youngest Brother Johnny and Etna my first cousin . We would all watch Dr. Who together. Even though Tommy was so many miles away he would call . He was watching the same episode so we all got to watch together just like he was there with us. Tommy and Mom are gone now but you were their favorite Dr. along with Johnny, Etna and me. I just want to Thank you for all the favorite memories of Dr, Who.

I just finished watching Shada. Thank you so very much.
I have been a fan of Doctor Who since you started the series. I am 50 years old and discoved Doctor Who on BBC after getting cable television in our home. You were playing the Doctor at that time (1975) and I have been a great fan of the show ever since.
I am a fan of all 13 Doctors but in my opinion, the Forth Doctor is still my #1 favorite after all this time and I still watch regularly.
Thank you again so much for playing the Doctor!

Mr. Baker,

I would like to wish you a very warm - but belated - Happy Birthday. I hope that your day was wonderful and that this year brings you great joy, health and blessings.

I first had the distinct privilege of meeting you at a small Doctor Who convention in Palo Alto, CA some 30 years ago. The generosity of your time, stories, and fondness for all the fans - including my time I was able to talk to you - is still like it was yesterday.

I look forward to hearing the latest Big Finish work you have been involved in.

I just wanted to thank you so much for being such an extraordinary person.

Dear Tom,

I have been a great fan of yours since I was a very small child.

I have very happy memories of watching you in doctor who, and quite funny ones from your appearance in blackadder.

I am now 18 - it is funny for me think I've been your biggest fan for 15 years now!

This year I dressed up as the 4th doctor for comic con. I never felt so confident before with my very long scarf, matching hat and suit! A lot of people recognised me which was very nice also.

I met with some whovians - we all spoke about how you were the best doctor and how we'd all loved you. I was able to purchase an authenticated autograph also! It's one of my prized possessions.

Now that's the part I find the most amazing. Many many years later, people still love you as the doctor. My granny loved you, my dad did, and I'm sure my own children will be able to experience the absolute wonder of watching you as the doctor at some point. Just like the doctor himself, your story will live on!

Sorry for the long and somewhat silly message. In short, thank you for so many happy memories, maybe someday I'll officially shake your hand and say thank you formally. I will never forget you - even when I'm 900 years old.

I wish you the best and good health for the coming year 2018.

Kind Regards,
Sorcha Noone
