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 announces the news on his website.

Desert Island Discs

Dear Tom,

I think that I previously asked whether you had been on this programme. And to my recollection, you confided that you had not - but that you had met Roy Plomley.

Anyway, May's question is this:

Were you to have Roy's replacement - the vivacious Kirsty Young (or whoever does the donkey work on her behalf) - phoning you up, and you agreed to participate, what would your luxury be.....remembering the rules that you're not allowed anything useful that would, in practical terms, make the whole ghastly experience bearable? (The Desert Island that is, not the interview).

Best wishes,

For me it would be desert island hell. I would die very quickly without someone to talk with. No luxury would help.

But I once worked for Roy Plomley in rep. He had exquisite manners and he loved actors.
