Forum rules
Start new topic to post your question. One question allowed per member per month. Ask one concise question per post, and please refrain from including information and comments irrelevant to your question.
These questions are for Tom to answer, so please do not be tempted to post a reply to someone else’s question. If you have a comment, post it in the Fan Community → About Tom’s Newsletters and Answers to Questions subforum.
Please do your research before asking a question and try not to ask questions which Tom has answered before – either here or in interviews such as the Doctor Who Magazine articles available on this website in the Doctor Who section. If your question is factual, please try googling it first to see if you can find the answer.
Questions about whether Tom will appear at a convention or in a particular programme or film are wasted questions as he cannot talk about any offers in advance, and the moment agreement is reached, he will announce the news on his website.
From May 2011, Tom will answer a maximum of 15 questions per month. Questions which do not meet the above criteria will be rejected.

Good evening Mr Baker (Well its evening in Aus), my question is simply...

Do you still get surprised when people tell you you are their hero?

I wanted to know this because I myself am sixteen, only found out Classic Who existed one year ago and instantly fell in love with it. I consider you my hero, just as I do Lis Sladen (if only I could tell her). You both have been an inspiration and have helped me to develop values and memories I cherish every day.

Thank you for being a hero 30 years after your role,

Your fan down under,
An apple a day keeps the Doctor away,
But if the Doctor is cute, then bugger the fruit!

Dear Samantha,

I am used to being called a hero but always amazed when it happens. People still give me babies to hold and some older fans give their grannies to hold. Some grannies proposition me. Yes!

Best wishes
