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.

Your favorite type of question?

Hello Tom. Doubtless you've been asked nearly every question conceivable about your time with Dr. Who. I suspect that some have been asked more than others and that there are certain types of questions that you're asked nearly every day ("How was it being Dr Who?" "What's your favorite episode?" and "Who was your favorite companion," for example).

My question is this: what types of questions do you enjoy being asked the most (this type being one of them, presumably ;-))?

All the best,

Dear Rob in Chicago,

I loved all the companions in different ways and it would not be kind go into details. But I have very tender memories of Lis Sladen. She was well established when I arrived but we both had liverpool in common and that turned out to be important. As to favourite episodes... well, there was one where I was being drowned by the villain played by Bernard Horsefall. It was very controversial and caused a certain Mrs Whitehouse to react hotly. Boy she was outraged! And it got us good publicity and I enjoyed her indignation. She died.

The questions I like are the ones that cue me for "and thereby hangs a tale."

I have good memories of Chicago.

Best wishes from Tom
