Backtime memories?

Dear Tom,

A few years ago, you provided your voice to "Sarge the robot" in a low budget Sci-fi movie called "Backtime":
(these were the only pictures I could find from it on the web as it doesn't really exist anymore)




I wonder if you have any memories of it? I don't suppose you dressed up in the robot suit? I do recall there was mention of an off-screen character called Leela ... It had a good plot about a young couple who travelled through time pursued by two people who turned out to be themselves from another time?!

Anyway I hope that Year 78 is good for you in every way and that you enjoy your cake better than this chap!


Best regards Monsieur (tips hat)!


P.S. I read that American comedian Steve Martin had always wanted to play Doctor Who. When he was cast as the Dad in the "Cheaper by the Dozen" family movies he requested his character be called "Tom Baker" in your honour -- this was summarily granted and is the closest he came to playing the role! Had you heard of this?

No, I have never heard that story.

Steve Martin would be a wonderful Doctor Who. He would be a wonderful God. And if he did God I would believe in him and die for him. I believe in Steve. Bring him on.
