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.

Hi Tom,
I just wanted to say thank you for being a fun part of my childhood. I've been suffering from PTSD for the last twenty years or so and have found that one of the many problems associated with the disorder is the loss of good memories. My current therapist encouraged me to make a list of the happy elements of my life and in doing so try to enjoy them again. Hence my writing you. Your portrayal of the good Doctor was incredible. Hiding behind the sofa with my brother during the scary bits was wonderful. I thank you. Hope life is treating you well.

Hi Tom. I worked with you many years ago at The Westminster Theatre. I was ASM on An Inspector Calls. At that time you were reading Conrad and we had lots of discussions about 19th century literature. You encouraged me to go back into learning and inspired me to an OU degree in English literature. It changed my life. I teach English and love my job. Thank you for your inspiration. Jane Alsop (was Frost) x

Just pausing a moment to say thank you for all of the body of work that you have accomplished. I have seen a great deal of it and am reminded of a person who embodies both the idea of a Renaissance noble and a Picasso, who has been brave enough to share his talents with the rest of us. Thank You.

Dear Mr. Baker,

About some time last month I bought the Blu-Ray Disc put out of your first season as the Doctor and I must say I was fairly pleased with the picture quality and all the bonus content including my favorite aside from your interview of course is the Behind the Sofa when you watch all theses episodes with Phillip Hinchcliffe and Elizabeth Sladens daughter Sadie Miller. It was a joy to see your reactions and also that you remember a lot about the production and actors and actresses you were onscreen with. Hopefully they may do more seasons of your series on Blu-Ray Disc. Have a blessed day and hopefully I can meet you if you ever come to Orlando, Fl or the USA for a sci=fi convention because I'd love to have your autographs and the DVD's and Blu-Ray copies of some of your episodes I have copies of.

Hola, O bright and sunny one!

Seeing as it is springtime around here and most people are in winter hibernation mode, re-watching your episodes is a welcome chance of seeing non-black clothing around 🙂

The kids (who're watching it all for the first time) are just as happy to see you as I am, at times rolling down to the floor with laughter. "Doctor, you're too late. - I can't be!", indeed. Never too late, you are...

Hi Tom
So nice that you took some of time to talk to me about our dogs outside Waitrose, the other day. My wife and I think Poppy is also adorable having seen the pictures on your website.
I am writer and I really couldn’t get any work done on my new novel when I got back home having been spotted talking to you by friends. So, you can guess the Facebook traffic afterwards.
Regards
David

I would Love to sit and have a drink with you someday. You provided such a wonder journey for us all and to meet the man himself would make me feel like I was a part of your ( the Doctors ) many stops. I became an actor 4 yrs ago and have been in a bunch of things myself ( Alita Battle Angel out Dec18 is the biggest so far ) but, I'd love to do a skit you you too.

I had my Dr Who monster book signed by Tom in Dartford WHS 1975 at a guess. I often see Tom in our local supermarket and would love to say hello but have not yet had the courage.
Tom, Pyramids of Mars is as great now as back in 1975!

Dearest Mr Baker,

I just want to say a huge thank you for being my first doctor. I had hoped one day to be able to meet you but alas while I was growing up in England I was still far too shy to attend conventions.

However, you were instrumental in me finding a soulmate through the power of Doctor Who who took me to Australia and helped bring out my confidence so that I have since managed to go out and meet like minded people in the world of sci fi, and especially doctor who.
In fact it's because of actors like yourself I have dared to dream and some of these dreams have actually come true.
You were one of my very first inspirations and for that I will always be very grateful.

I am currently working on a cross stitch of yourself. If I get chance I would love to be able to send it out to you to take a look at at and I will gladly pay postage to and from the UK. Or maybe I could send you a photo of the finished product if that would be ok to autograph.

By the way, I thoroughly enjoyed your recent interviews on your newly release box set of your very first season of Doctor Who.

I wish you all the best Mr Baker and again, many many thanks for making my childhood great.

Alison

Dear tom thank you for making my child hood a world of wonder and amazement watching you on tv as doctor who in england as a child, has always stuck with me, my entire life, the memory of being so scared and on the edge of my seat, then waiting for the next episode, through acting you have made so many life richer.
Thank you mate.

Love you Tom! When I was a little boy, my grandmother and I would watch Dr. Who reruns at night here in America. This is one of my fondest memories and I just want to thank you for all the work you put into being the Doctor.

Mr Baker,

I wanted to take a moment today, in the hopes that my expression of thanks for your performances and gifts of yourself to the world bring to you some semblance of the joy you'd brought to me. Thank you, sir, for your inspired presence, and my most heartfelt wishes for all the best go out to you.

Most sincerely.

Dear Tom,

My 90 minute presentation on your life and time as DR. WHO for the astrology group was as well received as any of the others.

For the first time ever, I dressed for the part! I already had the scarf as Mum knitted one for Christmas 1975. Alas, rather than treat it as a priceless family heirloom, the moths had got at it. Yet only certain colours, so it was that in late July-early August Mum set to on regenerating it!

There was a very good review of the talk on my Facebook page by the group secretary.

What an interesting life you have led. I couldn’t wait for you to get out of the monasteries – though I suspect your time in that rarefied atmosphere added to your intensity as an actor. When you played the Doctor, it convinced that you had been somewhere else.

And at times your life has been so amusing, even amid the drama. The Bear in WINTER’S TALE, the Station Hotel, how Time Lords listen to water.

While you had worked your way up, played the National Theatre with Laurence Olivier and major roles in movies, many of the parts were bearded…or otherwise hairy! So that in the 1970s – from the general public’s point of view – it seemed you really had materialised from nowhere and must somehow really be DR. WHO.

From all those people saying you were nothing, you’ve certainly had the last laugh.

Hyeon Su from chungnam in South Korea wrote on August 19, 2018 at 11:40 am:
I'm glad I finally got in touch with you.

I am a fan boy who lives in Korea. I'm younger (only 21) and I live very far than average fans, but my passion for you and Doctor who never fall behind.

When I first came to love Doctor Who in Korea, the information about the classic series was almost hard to find.

But I started to know one by one of the classic series with a constant passion.

And when I first discovered about the 4th doctor, I heard that you led the heyday of Doctor Who. And the more I learned about you, the more I learned why.

Even though I didn't understand your lines at the time because of my poor English skills, I fell completely in love with your doctor. Strange and unpredictable behavior and language matched the freedom and wonder given by the show.

It was like being a Doctor Who fan of the '70s, falling into your magic through the screen.

The wish of Korean fans, including me, is to actually meet the Doctors, their life heros.

And I met eight doctors at this year's LFCC event. But I'm afraid I haven't met you. Because my flight arrived in London on Friday night.

The regret then makes me sad.
I am happy to deliver my feelings that I did not convey at the time through your site.



Thank you for everything. Being the Doctor, inviting fans to join the Wonderful Adventures, Thank you for still being with us....

I don't know when, maybe I won't see you forever, but I want to talk to you face to face at least once.

I hope the day comes.

I always think about you when I see your autograph which I got from this site.
Dennis from Fall River, MA USA wrote on August 19, 2018 at 3:30 am:
Tom, as I look upon you in your elder years that trademark toothy grin continues to bring a smile to my face with much love and appreciation for the memories you have provided me in my youth (perhaps a brown felt hat and multi-colour scarf would add a nice finishing touch, also 😀). May the future bring you continued health and happiness.
Jason Tugwell from Clovis wrote on August 18, 2018 at 5:33 am:
I would simply like to say thank you Mr. Baker, for your work with Dr. Who.

My only access to the show was visiting my grandparents in Salinas California as a child, my grandfather was retired air force and had his own dedicated ham radio room. With his knowledge, he had built an antenna capable of picking up BBC, and this is where I had the pleasure of being exposed to alternatives to American television, including Monty Python.
These were some of the happiest times of my life, and I am grateful for being able to catch your performances.
Thank you ever so much, and I wish you and your family well.

Cheers.

Having watched you every week as DR. WHO in the 70s & 80s, I'm delighted you're back in this world with ongoing adventures.

Tonight I'm giving a Powerpoint Presentation on DR. WHO: THE LIFE & TIMES OF TOM BAKER for the Northern Lights Astrological Society, Blackpool Cricket Club 8-10.00pm.

Looking at your entire life from Scotland Road, DR. WHO to national treasure from what we know and using various astrological charts/techniques.

I've given similar talks on William Hartnell (2015), Patrick Macnee, Patrick Troughton (2016), Jon Pertwee (2017), Roger Moore & Robert Vaughn. You are the first live subject!

There was a photo of you and the Daleks in the Blackpool Evening Gazette today, chiming in with the talk.

I hope I do the talk and you justice. That is as well received as the others.

Continued happiness,

Hi Mr. Baker,

I just wanted to say I really enjoyed your work as the Doctor. When I was a kid, my dad and I would sit down and watch Dr Who every night (it was on late at night on PBS here in the States). I have very fond memories of spending those times with my dad. He and I both loved your Doctor, and I consider you my Doctor.

Doctor Who was my first real exposure to sci-fi, as a kid, and I loved it! I've since become a total Doctor Who fanatic. I've seen every episode, from William Hartnell to Peter Capaldi. While there are many great actors that have played the Doctor, I will always consider you as THE Doctor. Thank you for bringing such life to that role.

Hi Tom

A short time ago Dunhelm opened in Hastings and I almost walked into you... I was sure right away, then you spoke to your wife and the voice just sorted it.

I didn't talk to you because I am the sort of person that likes privacy so left you to your shopping trip.

But for me you ARE Dr Who, in the 1980's my mum knitted me a "Dr Who Scarf" and my then girlfriend and now now of over 30 years wore it stringing around and between our necks.. But of course being made of wool it got longer and longer so had to abandon it, but I remember John Pertwee VERY well indeed but Dr Who for me was Always Tom Baker... Romana and the key to time etc

Hello Tom,
I really should have said hello to you,in Waitrose at Hawkhurst the other day.Truth to tell I am still in awe of you as the Doctor.More than this your Captain in Blackadder has become a joke(in a nice way)between my partner an I.Any nudity at home results in variations on "Oh, you have a womans leg"(we are a gay male couple LOL) etc
Keep well. and much respect (and love)

Hello Tom,

I firstly want to say how brilliant you were as the doctor. In my eyes you are still 'The Doctor'

I have a lot of your episodes on my DVD shelf at home. I feel very proud of that collection!

I am also an artist and I feel that you may like my artwork as it lends itself to science fiction as well as surrealism. You can just google my name.

All my love to you
