These questions are for Tom to answer, so please do not be tempted to post a reply to someone else’s question. If you want to make 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 announces the news on his website.

Many thanks for answering my last question, I am indeed a fan of Big Finish and really looking forward to your forthcoming adventures. :D

During your 7 years on the show you worked with four script editors, namely Robert Holmes, Anthony Read, Douglas Adams and Christopher H. Bidmead. I wondered if you can share memeroies of working with each of them and whether you agreed with one editors vision of the show above the others ?

Dear JR,

I socialised a lot with Douglas Adams and found him very easy to deal with as script editor. Bob Holmes was the most experienced and had a lovely sardonic quality and a very sharp sense of humour. He did the Leisure Hive I think. I hear tell I was sometimes tactless in my suggestions. It's too late for apologies and I suppose I was guilty. I still am guilty.
