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.

Meeting creators?

Dear Tom,

I have seen a photo of you dressed as the Fourth Doctor with Daleks' creator, Terry Nation. Did you also meet the creator of 'Doctor Who', the Canadian Sydney Newman? If so I wonder what he thought of your performance of his character?

Best regards,


P.S. Thanks for the heads up regarding the Bruno Bettelheim "The Uses of Enchantment: The Meaning and Importance of Fairy Tales" book which I have just finished and found very enlightening!

I never met Newman or any of the top brass and had no idea what they thought of my efforts. Nor did I care much because the audience figures mattered so much more.

Glad you liked The Uses of Enchantment.
