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.

Your interview on Graham Norton's radio show reminded me of the time in 1971, when you were invited by Nadia, our drama teacher, to speak to a class of American high school students. You were playing at the Old Vic in the National Theatre's production of Merchant of Venice. It was so thrilling to listen to your class as a one of those students who lived in rural Maine, and, then to see you in Merchant, and in Nicholas and Alexandra, which you had just finished filming!

I've always loved your work, made even more special by the fact you took your precious time to speak to 20 kids who were studying in the UK that summer. Thank you so much!

Hello Mr. Baker! (or Tom, I don't know which you prefer).

I would have written you a letter, but I read that you sadly cannot reply to those. Firstly, I would like to explain that even though my email says 11th Doctor, you and your incarnation hold a very special place in my heart and mind. Soon, I will be purchasing your book 'Scratchman'- cannot wait to read it! Even if I never get the chance to meet you in person, I wanted you to know that you are an amazing person, and you will never be forgotten. I also wish to become the Doctor someday, and even if I do not, I will continue to write DW stories, which I plan on publishing eventually. While there is more I would say, I don't wish to take up too much of your time, and I honestly can't think of what to say.

Wishing you a very happy, very joyous, belated birthday, Tom! Stay childish (because there would be no point in being a grown-up, otherwise).

-Daniel S.

Wishing you a very Joyous and Happy Birthday. And might add to a very young Mr. Baker. Just got done watching The Talons of Weng-Chiang - many of my favorites. A quote you said in the show, if I may: "There's a one-eyed yellow idol to the north of Khatmandu, There's a little marble cross below the town; There's a broken-hearted woman tends the grave of Mad Carew, And the Yellow God forever gazes down." I'm looking forward to all your new adventures - especially your new book - Scratchman. Always from a loyal fan. Barb Smith.

Greetings from the U.S.A.!

I may be a little behind, but I wanted to wish you a very happy birthday and to thank you for your portrayal of the fourth Doctor Who. Your stories were the first episodes I watched of the show, and I've been hooked ever since.

Best of luck in all your future endeavors.

Wishing you a Happy 85th Birthday and many returns of the day. My young Son's first few words were "Doctor Who" as we watched the series weekly here in the US during your time as the 4th Doctor.

Happy birthday for yesterday, Tom Baker. Being 67 myself (not quite 85), I enjoyed the seasons when you were the Doctor and they were first shown on television in Australia, especially when Sarah Jane Smith (Elisabeth Sladen) was your companion. The Pyramids of Mars episodes are still my favourite. I hope that you enjoyed celebrating your birthday anniversary and all the best for the rest of 2019 and the years to come.

Thank you Tom, take care.

The Time Lord reaches 85!
Tom, I wish you a Very Happy Birthday!
You are an international treasure, and my personal favorite.
I was recently asked "If you could meet anyone in the world you haven't met, who would it be?"
My reply was "WHO indeed... Tom Baker!"
I was a bit concerned when I didn't see the annual Christmas message on your Facebook Page, but after seeing your birthday message, I can see you are looking just fine.
God Bless You, Tom Baker. <3 <3

Dear Tom,
Happy Birthday!
It's funny, but I can'y believe that it has transpired that you are 85 (and still looking strong and great!) and I am now the same age that you were when you left Dr Who (47 years old).
Thank you for all you did and are still doing for all of 'us' fans - who love you so dearly.
You are a truly great man.
Best regards, Richard.

Happy 85th Birthday Tom

Also, I know you criticised your last season of Doctor Who, but what came over on screen was a more straight forward performance with the occasional funny thrown in.

Should be knighted

A very happy birthday (should be 'Sir') Mr. Baker. Along as a fan of your tenure as The Doctor, I have always found myself enjoying anything you have done throughout your wonderful career. Hoping it continues for many years more to come. Best wishes...

You were my doctor when I was growing up and you remain my favourite.
I'm rewatching all of Doctor Who and an halfway through the fourth doctor. I loved seeing the classic episodes and the way you bring the character to life.

HAPPY 85TH BIRTHDAY, TOM! I have always been enchanted with the way you play Doctor Who! Your Doctor is so very inspirational and fun... so full of heart (2 of them, in fact!) and soul! ... I just saw the KBTC PBS Television Doctor Who Marathon 2019 last night, which included 'The Pyramids of Mars'.... It was a truly delightfully entertaining experience. These Doctor Who episodes never get old, but are forever fresh! Thank you so very much for being our Doctor! Warmest wishes, Your Fan, Robert

Happy Birthday, Tom! To this day, the Doctor Who theme music makes me feel happy excitement and anticipation. You were my doctor. I spent every Saturday night with you, and I was moved to tears when your Doctor regenerated. Seeing you as the Curator in 2013 was another tearful moment, but from joy. Thank you for so much happiness through the years.

With great affection,
