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.

Dear Tom.

I just listened to you reading your autobiography. Like most people I have adored you as Doctor Who. I suppose I was 4 or 5 or 6 in your last years of the show. And as an adult, before the new series started up again, I loved to watch old episodes as a sort of comfort nostalgia thing. But I have to tell you, having listened to your autobiography, you really should have written more! I think I would have loved your story, as you told it, even if I hadn't been a fan as a little child. Perhaps you should go ahead and write some more?

I hope all is well with you now, much love,

Erin

Currently very ill at the moment and can't sleep. so roaming through Audio books on YouTube (apologies for not buying) came across your Autobiography, totally enthralled and soon forgot how unwell and not able to slee, thank you !! I doubt you will recall, once lived just around the corner from you in London, and we chatted while you were repairing brickwall at the front of a house. In my time have had call to speak to celebrities in my time, but NONE were as nice, keen to chat and talk as you did that day. I also am an ex teacher, love reading and consider the English language as the best in the world. Also caught an interview with fellow actor Paul ???? and again, was just blown away with your mastery of the spoken word, absolute common sense, unbound taking the mickey out of your self and zero ego (ie I am a God now). In that interview he asks you why have you not written more and you typically put your self down. What a shame, as you have pure eloquence, total involvement by the reader, your descriptions of your time as a monk, the army and despair when not finding work as an actor are I would say up there with the best writers of our time, so profound. Also the pure joy, non luvvie, love of making kids happy as Dr Who (ie bathing your own children). Your compassion and kindness of cleaning shit from your father-in-law who was so horrible to you. Your honesty of 'enjoying' being liked for your being your self and choosing 'your self' and not acting as Dr Who. Then your admiration for Christopher Hitchens for his passion and anger at how religion does not deserve the respect it is given. Takes a lot to get my respect and admiration being such a grumpy and critical old bugger - but Tom and all those on here I am sure would agree, if there were more 'humans' like you, this world would be a far better world. PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE write more !!

Late Saturday night. Wife and kids are sleeping and enjoying "The Sun Makers" episode. Brings back great memories of watching Dr. Who has a 10 year old back in the 70's. Tom - You were the absolute best Doctor of all time. Have not been able to get into any of the new Doctor Who shows over the last 10 years. Also forgot what a tough ass K9 was PLUS the ladies absolutely brought it back in the 70's. Take Care from Milwaukee, Wisconsin USA.

It is my hope that this message finds you well and in the company of those you care for most. Your wit, warmth, and talent for life spans far beyond the screen, brightening the everyday experiences of those whom are most fortunate enough to make your acquaintance. You have a spark for life that makes one throw off the feeling of humdrum and seek out ones own spark for the extraordinary. Furthermore, no one can ever accuse you of being beyond the reach of everyday people whom wish to show appreciation for the fact that you are you. It is with greatest appreciation that I write these words. May you continue to shine and bring joy to all those around you. With kindest regards, Lori

Thanks for all the fish. You've always been my Doctor. Why am I not surprised Tom Baker is a cat person? And yet, I never knew. Life would have been much less entertaining without you in it. Stay hungry and stay foolish.

Sound as a Pound, Tom. Grew up as you with my favourite Doctor. Only appreciated your extended humour as an adult (bring on the infamous Symphony ad.) Went past Scottie Rd. many a time as a youngster being a Woolyback from Wallasey, but now in London 🙂 Variations by Webber cemented my memories of you in 'The Book Tower' and revered you all the more in HIGNFY. Peace and purrs to both you, Sue and the Burmese Bunch 🙂

Hi, Tom. I just want to say three things.

1. I'm your biggest fan. You're kind, clever, brave, showoff, sartastic, funny, cute, handsome, canny, caring, helpful, smart, big-headed.

2. My favourite six Doctor Who episodes are City Of Death,The Androids Of Tara, The Leisure Hive, The Ribos Operation, The Armageddon Factor, Shada. Because it's really exciting, fun, funny, surprising, little bit scary & cliffhanger.

3. I love Romana II's dress, hat, boots from Shada. I really want a dress like that.


Please reply back to me.


Thanks,

Love, Shani xxx

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.
Scott from Hornell, NY USA wrote on February 1, 2018 at 9:00 am:
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!
