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.

Since we are yet to reach 15 questions for the month. I'm wondering if Dirk will let me slip this one in for Tom. I think it's a good one that has yet to be asked.

Dear Doctor,

Out of all the roles and performances you have given throughout your entire career(tv, film, and theater), what was the most physically challenging/demanding? If you can't single out one, that's fine. Just give a few and elaborate on the experiences, if you will. I know that "Doctor Who: The Deadly Assassin" had to be a rather rough experience for you.

Lastly, I thoroughly appreciate all the hard work you put into entertaining us. Can't thank you enough, Tom.

The death scene of Rasputin was very arduous and two days later I was called back from London to Madrid because there was a scratch on the negative! Because they had to reset the scene it seemed to leave some actors free. Naturally several came to watch the death scene and that added to the tension. I never looked at the scene but some people liked it.

Glad you enjoy the Question Room.
