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 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.

Questions a tad off?

Many times, you have described Doctor Who as being a fond memory so much so that you have returned to be with your fans. However, many of the questions asked by us fans, tend to get the bitter end of your bitter sweet memories since some do not go back and look at already answered questions. The constant reminder that you do not watch your own episodes, the way you describe yourself during the tenure as being an obstacle. As a fan, I don't intend to force you to recollect what you disliked, what questions could be used to get more at your happy days and the moments that made you smile? We're here to celebrate the good and great times and you're absolutely included. XD
Si-Fy and Fantasy, that is where my heart lies. To Doctor Who and its 18 years of brilliance, still waiting on the 50 yr anniversary!

Dear Cloak,

But it can't be all good times. There was some very creative tension in rehearsal and I was not always tactful in my reservations.

But there was method in my not wanting to watch myself as Doctor Who. It wasn't because I didn't love the series, it was because - unlike my viewers - it was impossible for me to see or judge it objectively. I may not have been happy with the way it was edited and it might have affected my performance. I lived the part - I didn't want to spoil that freshness by watching myself do it.

I think my happiest days were with PHilip Hinchcliffe. He was so young and glamourous - and so intelligent. He still is!
