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.

I told you before how sick I was last year. Your WONDERFUL BOOK lifted my spirits so much. Your words tickled my imagination. I could see the entire story in my mind. Then when I heard you read the story on CD. Your voice was like am oasis to a dry sandy desert(I was the dry sandy desert). I want YOU to know YOU will always be a hero.
This is not the first time you have been a hero for me. I did not grow up during a terrible war thankfully. But I grew up in a private one. One many children see called alcoholism. Parents fighting and beating on each other. Until the alcohol wins over all. During this time what gentleness you get there was always a threat of beating hanging over your head.
I will admit when I saw you acting as Doctor Who. I was in aw of your masculinity and yet your gentleness. A gentleness like nothing I had never seen.
THANK-YOU for showing me there is gentleness without brutality.THANK-YOU. BE WELL. Sandra
You were the Doctor I grew up with. One day maybe we Americans can try Jelly Babies.
I echo sentiments from others that you please take care to stay healthy in this crazy time.
However, my greatest concern is your soul. I think it would be awesome to spend time with you in Heaven when the crazies of our lives are done. I pray that you trust in Jesus Christ to forgive you of your sins. We all have those. Jesus died and rose to give us eternal life.
This letter probably seems odd and off. However, the opportunity to write something that you would read seemed to need an important message.
I’ll keep watching, and listening, in hopes to one day see you. If not on this side of eternity, prayerfully the other.
I do hope you're well. It's time like this, more than ever, we need the Doctor.
I just wanted to drop you a line to say that I've been rewatching some of my favourite Doctor Who episodes to lift my spirits. Escaping reality with the Doctor has proven to be a tonic, now more than ever.
Thank you for the years of happiness you've given myself, and others.
Could you please give us a Facebook update on how you are doing?
I am writing today to express how grateful I am for all the years of pure entertainment you have given me, I have been watching you from a very young age and even though I have grown into a man now I still feel a child like glee when ever your presence graces my TV screen. I must also compliment you on your story telling abilities every interview I have seen you in has had gripped just as much as your acting roles, Many have also had me in stitches and it's nice to hear a real person who was once the "tea maker" on a construction site elevate to a national treasure. I feel that not many actors can achieve what you have in your ability to play such a wide range of roles so well from the beloved Doctor Who to the villainous Koura from sinbad. I wish you well in all your endevours and good health for the years to come and all you may bring in the future. a great big thank you for your time and all you have given to all your fans.
And a great big thank you from me.
Hope you are well and safe
I grew up in the 70s and was fortunate enough at the time to watch all your dr who stuff. You WAS my doctor I grew up with watching and so consider you THE doctor. No one else can touch you In my opinion. Your earlier stories especially were the greatest in WHO history. You are a very extraordinary man and a hero to all and continue to be so. I wish you and your family all the best and to stay safe in this crazy time we are all sadly experiencing.
God bless you
I wish you and your family safety and good health.

Keep safe and well

I recently sent you a topical "virus-based" message about the 1977 "Doctor Who" classic "The Invisible Enemy" and Coronavirus (Covid-19).
Not even the Timelords of Gallifrey are immune to Coronavirus! Closer to home, in the news, it was announced that Prince Charles has tested positive for the virus. Also on the news was a message from your female counterpart, Jodie Whittaker, in character as "Doctor Who".
Tom, you need to speak to your fans! I feel sure your fans would appreciate hearing from you in this time of crisis. Speaking for myself, I'm concerned for your health and safety! How are you and Sue coping? Are you self-isolating? Have you stopped working? And on a topical and slightly humorous note, have you got enough toilet rolls? 😂😂😂
Please Tom, send a message to your fans via your Website, to reassure us you're safe and well! We would love to hear from you.
Please look after yourself and Sue.
Have just discovered your Offical Site! I am going to have a good look around!
Happy times and places 🙂
Love you and seeing you and your pets in the country. Hope you are well and stay well.
I'm glad that you seem to be healthy and well even though you are 86 years old.
I only just discovered this, otherwise I would've put something up much sooner.
You are one of my favourite Doctors ever, and I admire you a lot. I'm glad that you came in Day of the Doctor as the Curator. You were great as the Doctor, I wish you'd come back as Fourteenth. My mum used to watch Doctor Who when she was little, and she mostly watched Fourth Doctor. She was scared of the Daleks but she really liked your acting as the Doctor.
I wish I could meet you. You are a fabulous role model.
P.S. I love cats too!
Do you recall, as "Doctor Who" in 1977, you once battled a VIRUS in the story "The Invisible Enemy". The story memorably introduced K-9. When people were infected by the virus, they would say, "Contact has been made".
Well, the world now also faces a battle with a real-life virus: Coronavirus (Covid-19).
Tom, as you are an octogenarian, and are in the "high risk" group, please do take extra care to protect yourself and your wife! You are incredibly precious to your fans, and we love you very much!
To borrow the line from "The Invisible Enemy", contact must NOT be made!
Please stay safe, Tom!
Know you will always be a real life hero to me!
The Timeless Child.
That's a great new concept they've introduced for The Doctor and your Doctor was just that.
Deep, playful, and erudite.
Thanks for all the fun.
And The Curator is back! Wow.
Then some how.I can't even remember how I found out about the book you wrote, Doctor Who The Scratchman. I wanted to read the book. I ordered it. For the first time in months I was excited. When I found out you narrated the book on CD I had to get those too. I could hardly wait. For the first in a long time I had something good to look forward to. When the book came I could hardly wait to open it. I couldn't hardly put it down. You are a wonderful writer. I enjoyed it from cover to cover. When I got the CDs and heard you reading your book. I enjoyed it very much. Some how you have lifted my spirits and gave me the ability to keep going. I am off the walker. Walking on my own around the house. Just using a cane when I go out to help with balance. The way I was going I am not sure if I would be here I was so low. I had stopped caring about me. Thank-you for saving me by raising my spirits and giving me a smile again. Sincerely, Sandra Evans
Hay Tom I was not able to wish you a happy birthday but I was able to watch you first doctor who episode Robot. I always love watch Doctor Who, but I always find my self watching the classics especially you’re time as the Doctor. Thanks for bing my favorite Doctor and there will always be a place in my heart for you.
I wanted your scarf, jelly babies & to travel with you. I remember you from Sinbad, Harryhausen movies are still timeless. You are & will forever be the definitive Doctor!! I did finally get the scarf & wear it all the time. Thank you for inspiring not only a generation but the universe. 🦇
I have just now come across Big Finish and in particular your work there reprising the fourth Doctor. What Joy! You were *my* Doctor Who, from when I was growing up, and I have always loved your work (both as the Doctor and otherwise) and it was a real thrill to hear you once again with Louise Jameson, or rather hear the Doctor and Leela 🙂 . You took me right back to my childhood – thank you!
I remain constantly delighted to see and hear of your ongoing activities.
With much affection, Chris.
