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.

Bedside Manner

Dear Uncle Tom,

They say that Doctors make the worst patients. In your autobiography you mentioned that you once worked as a nurse in the army. I was wondering, when you succumb to man-flu, are you a good patient or do Sue, Poppy, Larry and the cats all run away?!

Best of health,

Antony, I don't succumb to man flu.

When ill I try to be cheerful and am always grateful, eloquently so. It is a strategy that NEVER fails. I once nursed an ungrateful patient and was so unhappy I longed for death to get away from Him. I did once in my army medical days have an ungrateful patient with a dangerous heart condition; are you with me? Anyway, to get to the crux; he needed a bedpan urgently, and anticipating this frequent request, I left the stainless steel receptacle heating up in the hottest part of the sluice. Still there? Right, as as the bell rang and the red light flashed I was in with the pan, the heavy towel protecting my hand from the terrific heat.There was no malice in me, I promise. In one easy movement I lifted the ugly old ingrate up and popped his pink **** onto the very hot metal. Never had I felt such passion from a patient before. As his **** sizzled he flung his arms around my neck and pressed his hairy top lip into my jugular vein. Lawks, what a fuss! When your turn comes, Antony, and it may well be sooner than you think, don't make fuss.
