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.

Your Two Chances

Dear Tom,

In your autobiography and Reeltime video "Who On Earth is Tom Baker?" you mention that God gave you two chances, though you don't explicitly state what they were. This has puzzled me for some time and I hope you don't mind me asking you what they were? I think you might have alluded to: (i) recovering the next day from taking the Tofranil tablets and (ii) your successful current marriage, though maybe those two things could be something different entirely?

If you would rather not answer this question and it's too personal, I understand. Then maybe you can share your thoughts of how it is to have been the 'father-figure' to a generation of children around the world? It is touching that so many children in care homes and broken families looked up to your Doctor and he made them feel reassured and safe.

What a wonderful legacy!

Dear Anthony,

I never read my autobiography so the points you raise are a mystery. If ever I do read the book I'll look out for that statement. Perhaps my words were intended to be ironical because God had by then been abandoned.
