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.

Dear Tom,

(I hope you won’t mind me calling you Tom. I still feel a bit guilty for the time I greeted Nicholas Courtney by his first name. He seemed a bit taken aback. Was I overfamiliar, do you think? Anyway, he was v kind and talkative. A lovely man.)

Do you plan to write another book? Because you have such a devilish sense of humour, and an original way of seeing the world, it would be so nice to read a humorous tale or series of essays penned by you. I always look forward to your interviews in print ‘cause you make me laugh so much, and laughter is the best medicine, isn’t it? It must be lovely to know how happy you have made so many people in the world. You have certainly made this fan very happy! I wish I could give you a hug! : )

Take care,

David Lambert

Dear David,

During my two thousand, five hundred and fifty five days in Doctor Who, the affection of the fans kept me going during some dark periods; all gone now, but the fans remain loyal and affectionate still and I am grateful.

I don't plan a book but I'm doing a bit of charity work for the local hospice this autumn. I shall read a horror story I have written and submit to a rigorous interview in front of a very live audience. All this in October in Hastings.

Thanks for the hug.
