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 Tom,

My question is this; If you could share a pint and a bit of conversation with any historical figure, who would you choose and why?

Thank you Tom for taking the time to answer and all my best. :)

Dear Karen,

I would have liked to have a beer and skittles with Robert Louis Stevenson. His name jumps into my mind because I once played Long John Silver in Treasure Island. I murdered a few pirates and got away with it.

But Stevenson's genius was to be able to make these dreadful villains very entertaining and even, dare I say it, lovable. While the Squire and the Doctor and the rest are not so lovable. Alchemy! I'm talking fiction of course because in real life I would have run a mile from them all.

Poor Stevenson died young in the South Seas.
