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.

Hi Tom - my nan always said we were cousins - not sure if this is true but I'll cling to that legend 🙂 I hope you and yours are well. I've just been watching Dr. Who (Baker vintage) and still love it. My dad (a scouser of course) was in the merchant navy too sailing out of Liverpool, he was a contemporary of yours, a steward though he never sailed on the Queen Mary. Anyway, just wanted to say hello and that you are well loved, you are the Doctor!

Hello Tom.

I hope you're well. I have been a fan of yours for as long as i remember. one of my earliest memories is cuddling up with my dad to watch Genesis of the Daleks. The first book i remember reading was the novelisation of Horror Of fang rock,and every time i read a doctor who book growing up, i imagined you in the role. in my mind, you had dozens of companions, Ian and Barb, right through to Ace and Mel. I could never really picture another actor as the Doctor. When i was about 7 my grandma was knitting a jumper, and i asked her to teach me how, so i could knit a scarf, in my mind it was going to be just like the Doctors, miles long and multicoloured. I think i managed about 4 inches before giving up and going off to do something else, but the thought was there! Even all these years later, hearing your wonderfully reasonant voice sends me right back to being a kid again.

I really just wanted to say thank you. for making me become the man i am today, for teaching me the value of kindness and compassion, and for many, many years of entertainment through time and space. You truly are an inspiration sir.

You know I have always wanted to travel back in time in the blue box with the Doctor, the one with big hair, scarf and teeth. As a young boy I would watch the travels of the Doctor and wonder oh dear holding my breath thinking how's the doctor going to gt out of that one. Now I am much older and stores don't hold my attention as they once did, until Scratchman. So for a little while as I listened to Scratchman I traveled back in time and was a little boy again holding my breath wondering oh dear how was the Doctor going to get out of this one. Thank you Doctor, well done.

Mr Baker,

I was a Who fan here in the States in the early 80s. I had to watch it on Canadian channels when the atmospheric conditions were just right. I wrote you at the age of 13 in 1983 and not only did you respond, you sent an autographed photo. I treasured that pic for years, until a flood took much of my property in 2003. Of all the loss that photo was the greatest.
Now,I just found on your site the autographed photos section, which I just ordered. I’m so glad you’re selling these. Thanks and thanks for the years of entertainment and enlightenment (love interviews with you).

Hello Tom,

I would just love to say that you are my hero! - when I'm feeling a little down or have had a hard day for whatever reason, But when I put a DVD of your performance as Doctor Who (number four) on the television my happiness goes right back up again. I'd just like to say that I love you as an actor and always will and I love you more so as being Tom Baker as you're such a nice and caring man.

You've helped me over the past few months through an upsetting time I went through and you've made me come out on top! You know. Thank you for everything Tom.

I'll always hope to meet you one day. But if we don't it's been marvellous, The way you've been Doctor Who and made me smile.

All love and forever my very best wishes to you,

Hello Mr.Baker its been a while since I got in contact with you. I recently viewed some of the season 18 blueray discs @ a friends and almost fell about laughing @ the Galactic holiday tour package on the extras. It was more in the vain of 'Little Britain' in style and humour.I wish I had a Blueray player myself.
I think your doing very well for 85. I say this because my mum is 81 and I wish she was fit and well. I also loved 'Day Of the Doctor'2013 I still Adore you.

regards Christopher Anderson

For Tom:

For all of the moments. For all of the hearts you have touched. For all of the futures you inspired. One day not so long you gave life to character that began as just a few words on paper. That life grew and it became a part of that greatest passion within yourself. All of those children who looked at the telly and saw in that life the best part of themselves. In a moment they touched out to a hope that they too could become a hero. So many ideals start from the passion to create something meaningful. There will be a tomorrow because of Artists like yourself who believed in the power of expression. The impact of which is still being felt today. No man can be asked to be perfect but in his unique and even sometimes rough approach to art, perfection becomes he. That is what makes of a legend and that indeed you are and forever will be. I was a child of that time and never shall I forget those words and images that inspired me to inspire others to be inspired. Heroes are made from those who sacrificed and never compromised the art of being themselves.

Mr. Baker
Thank you.

Kindest regards
Always

Pleasant

Dear Tom, it gave us great joy to listen to your familiar tones on Radio 2 a few weeks ago. Growing up with you as our favourite Dr, this interview inspired us to write to you. We live in a little riverside village called Stoke Gabriel, Devon, and even here we have a link to you. A dear friend recently passed away in our village who worked alongside us in village shows that we have been involved with, and I'm hoping his name will be familiar to you, Mr. John Cox. John was a 'Soundman' on Dartmoor in the 1970s when you were filming Dr.Who and, as he knew we were avid fans of yours, would always enjoy telling us stories of the filming on the Moors and also of a photograph he took of yourself during filming. Your words to him were 'And this one's for you John'. We have been lucky enough to see the photographs of the cast and yourself on the Moors. We hope you are well and look forward to seeing you on the screen in the near future.
All the very best Sarah and Jon Cornish XX

Dear Mr. Baker,

I first saw Dr Who in the early 80's when I was 7 years old or so. Recently i remembered the re-runs that were aired on public television PBS and how I was turned on to Dr Who. I remembered how I used to sit up late watching them and getting in trouble. I remembered how I enjoyed the 4th Doctor the most! I am now 43 and have recently started binge watching the 4th Doctor episodes reminiscing classic TV. The information on the internet available about the cast of Dr Who led me to this website. I am thrilled to sign your guest book and be able to personally thank you. You are a special part of Dr Who that will never be forgotten. I wish I could go back in time and enjoy it all once again. =)
Thank you for all you have done.

Sincerely,
Bill Howell

Dear Sir Tom,
As a little girl in Texas, all I wanted was to grow up to ride horses and solve mysteries. Then, when I turned 15, my Mom rented Star Trek the Motion Picture. That changed everything; I became a science fiction junkie. It took me a long time to discover Classic Doctor Who. But from that first instant, you were my Doctor, and Sarah Jane was my favorite companion.
Thank you for “Scratchman,” it’s the best Doctor Who story I’ve ever read. It’s also my favorite audiobook, because of your wonderful voice bringing every character to life. I laughed along with you so many times - and held my breath when the TARDIS was in danger - it was like the Doctor was reading me a bedtime story! The timing couldn’t have been more perfect. I needed something to take me out of my world for while, and there you were. (As always.)
Now that all the 4th Doctor’s episodes are finally available on streaming, that opens up a whole new world! I intend on sharing them all with my young nephews - one of whom takes strongly after his Aunt - I know you’ll be his doctor too.
I do hope I’ll get to meet you in person someday, but until then, I just wanted to say that you’re my hero, and you’re wonderful. Thank you so, so much - for everything.
God Bless you,
Casey J.

Dear Mr. Baker,

In the 70's your show gave me great solace during a turbulent and difficult childhood. It was an oasis of light during dark times. As an adult I would like to say thank you so very much for your portrayal of the Doctor and for the comfort that it afforded me. Thank you!

​Greetings from America, Mr. Baker!

You have banished our winter doldrums as we enjoy the acerbic wit of "Who On Earth Is Tom Baker?" and your chilling narration of "Scratchman." Tonight we joined other scarf wearing fans at the special screening of "Logopolis" and eagerly await your seventh season on Blu-ray. Thanks for continued years of your unique gifts to our tedious planet.

Tom,

You introduced me to the wonderful world of British television back in the 70's when I first discovered Dr Who on our local Public Broadcast System affiliate. You are my favorite Dr, and I love the commentary sections that you have participated in. Thank you for all of the laughs you have given so many of your fans, as well as enlightening me to the wonderful world of British television!

Yours,

Today @5pm I'm leave to go see on the BIG screen Doctor Who: Logopolis. I think back to the time when in 1981 I got my first 5 mins of Dr Who in WTTW (PBS Chicago) while I was switch to watch OUTLAND on HBO, I watch it butt loads. Every Sunday, I had to switch thru WTTW and every time I watch longer, not even knowing what I was watching, Just knowing I loved the Sci-Fi. I was hooked. Every Gerry Anderson show I had watch as kid were made more real. The scripts were corrie but once I got to know the doctor thru you, the show was great to watch. It took more time for the wife to come around to WHO. I didn't know what I seeing was not the way the show were aired in the UK. WTTW had stitch the 25 min shows into a single show that run an hour to 2 hours. It was more to the liking stateside was use too. I have seen every show there is to see except for what lost to time. I have even seen your Home's. I can't even begin to tell you how many time I Have seen the Day of the Doctor. The only movie that top it in 2001: With over 250 viewing. David, Matt and Peter are caring on your great legend of the Doctor.

The kids today don't understand what you, sara jane and steward did for Dr Who. It were sad day to hear of they passing and the show did them great respect when they did.

#LLAP to the all the Doctors!

Just finished Scratchman and it's INCREDIBLE!!! So, so, so good. Favourite character - apart from the Dr of course - is Mr Tembel. The repartee between him and the Dr is the most bonkers, hilarious prose I have ever read!! And I loved the twist with the 'lady' that pops up in the book as well ... 😉😁😍 Bravo Sir Tom Baker!!!

Dear Mr Baker
I just stumbled apon this site and I desired to share with you, the wonder that I still carry with me. My first Doctor Who experience was John's regenerating into your doctor and I having no idea what I was watching. Back when the television only had 3 channels plus PBS. Most of my Sunday mornings during the 70ies 10am PBS I was there. Thank you very very much -Dave

Dear Doctor,
Last year I had the privilege to have met yourself at London film and comic con. I’d like to thank you so much as you signed a birthday card for my Dads 50th. His birthday was last month and he was over the moon to have such a personal message from yourself. It will always be a moment to remember seeing his face be transported to being a kid again as he read your kind words.
Forever grateful,

Hi Tom
I was browsing some old 70s & 80s music on youtube yesterday and to my utter surprise and delight it offered up a link to one of your old Cybermen episodes! You're my favourite doctor so I thoroughly enjoyed watching it - one good thing about getting older is the failing memory, so I would swear I'd never seen it before! Now its pointed me at an episode where you take on the daleks - can't wait! Thanks for everything...
Kindest regards

Hi Tom, We've been in the same room on more than one occasion with the first being in a department store in Australia in the 70s, which ended with my (about) 6 year old self in tears because we were fourth from the front of a queue to meet you and you had to go.

I'm turning 50 this year, so I no longer cry about it but I remember that day so vividly because you were my hero.

I've just finished the Scratchman audiobook. Thank you so much. It was wonderful to hear your voice and your laugh caused me to break out in some of the biggest smiles -- which of course had everyone on public transport staring at me strangely. Your treatment of dear old Harry and Sarah brought tears to my eyes.

I can only hope that the BBC will consider doing an animation of it. Thank you. Thank you from the bottom of my heart.
Matthew Matthew from Wiltshire wrote on March 8, 2019 at 8:19 pm:
Dear Tom.

I have ASD or Aspergers to be specific. They are very few characters and indeed actors who can make a character who is “alien” yet loveable. You succeeded in Doctor Who. You made an intelligent slightly aloof alien acceptable to the World.

Many of those who have ASD struggle to fit into this very confusing world. We adopt masks to fit in. But when we see fine actors, like yourself in Doctor Who, we connect with you. We can enjoy your adventures vicariously and feel perhaps, a little more comfortable with ourselves.

I’m pleased I can do this again with ScratchMan. I started it tonight and it is a good read.


With sincere best wishes for the future.

Matthew.

Dear Tom:
YOU LITERALLY SAVED MY LIFE!!!!!! YOU STOPPED ME FROM A SUICIDE ATTEMPT. YOU HAVE EFFECTED MANY LIVES BUT YOU SAVED MINE TOM!!!! I hope you read this.
I was born in 1964 in the USA and have lived here since. I grew up watching your show here from 1974 into the 1980s including reruns.
I was in college suffering from undiagnosed BiPolar. Things seemed utterly hopeless. The night came to say “goodbye” (stupidly). I was watching the Armageddon Factor where you said every Life was sacred and worth saving discussing Lalla Ward’s character. I imagined you talking to me and “putting your Finger aside your Nose with that grin.” I began to cry and remembered how you endured challenges in your life I had read about. Honestly, I thought “if Tom could endure his loneliness and become someone that effected so many lives” you would want me do the same.
On difficult days that still come in life, I wanted you to know Tom, that your strength saved a Man’s Life. I hope that gives you some strength as you gave me yours. Thank you Tom. Bruce
