Me too. Have all of TOMs stories on DVDs but, MOST of them are copies from my VCR tapes so I can play them on my computer. And like everyone else, am waiting for the Official BBC DVDs (with all the nice extras).

I've got all of Tom's Dr Whos on dvd (29 have been released so far in the UK) and was watching the whole "Key To Time" boxset as a Halloween weekend treat, it's an excellent season and "The Stones Of Blood" is fantastic :P

Hope to meet a nautical cove or two online to chat about Tom, "Who", etc :-)

I got into Dr. Who when my local PBS station showed Tom Baker era episodes. Loved the way he played the doctor! It was just so playful and fun even in peril. Truly brought me into the Who fandom.

Tom is a national treasure (a much overused phrase, but genuinely true in this case). I think the reason his Doctor was so successful and remains so popluar is that Tom is a genuine eccentric and just played the part as himself so the eccentricity came across as genuinely off-the-wall and unique, whereas the other actors who played the Doctor were not naturally eccentric so when they try to play it like that it seems forced (David Tennant I'm looking at you!). I've had the pleasure of meeting him briefly twice so far, the first when I was only 5 and he was still playing the role on TV - he turned up at a wolworths in full costume! And second in '97 when he signed my copy of his autobiography and offered me a jelly baby. What a moment!
My favourite Dr Who stories of Tom's are: City of Death, The Ark in Space, The Seeds of Doom, The Robots of Death and The Pirate Planet. :D

Tom is a national treasure


Oh, absolutely. That FACT cannot be shouted from the rooftops often enough. But without taking any honour nor glory from merry olde' england, land of HIS birth; and being a fan from across the pond, it can also be stated; TOM is something of an international treasure too!

Hi to all the new members :P

Another thing that helped Tom's 7 years become THE classic time for "Who" was that there were some fab writers too, Chris Boucher, Terrance Dicks, Douglas Adams and my favourite.....Robert Holmes, lots more too.
