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.

Knees up?

I hope the end of summer finds you happy, content, and ready to face the change of season. I write after reading your comments that arthritis bothers you when you walk. Have you considered knee-replacement surgery? I ask because my dear friend Annie had both of her knees replaced some years back. It took some convincing because Annie was 82 and (being Scottish) said it wouldn’t be worth the money as she would not be alive long enough to enjoy the new knees. She changed her mind and received almost immediate relief from her pain, walking with ease three weeks after the surgery. Now she is puttering about happily with her beagle at the age of almost 90.

If you feel acquiring artificial joints is the slippery slope towards becoming a Cyberman, I fully understand. Either way, may the autumn find you enjoying many walks with Poppy.

Your fan,
Huey Long

Dear HL,

I did not mean to complain. I am very resolved to endure what cannot be eased. But thanks for the lovely story of Annie and your wishes for the autumn.
