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.

Hello, Doctor Who! :P

I listened to a radio adaptation of John le Carré's spy novel The Russia House and was I pleasantly surprised to find that it had you in it! :lol: :P

Having listened to and enjoyed the story, I was just wondering if you have ever read any of his novels, like Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy or The Spy Who Came in from the Cold. If so, did you enjoy them?

From your number one fan, Anthony! :P

Dear Anthony

The Russia House was my first big lead on radio. Barley Blair?

I read all of the early novels and enjoyed them. My favourites were A Murder of Quality, filmed as A Deadly Affair and especially The Spy Who Came in from the Cold.

Poppy sends her regards.
