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.

David Essex As The Doctor

Over the years everyone's favourite Time Lord has been played by a variety of actors young and old. I've come up with a suggestion that perhaps one day he could be played by an actor in his sixties who's also a pop singer, probably at the height of his fame at the start of your 'Doctor Who' career. Dave could make a rather timid Time Lord; if pursued by an aggressive looking alien creature he could suddenly grab hold of his assistant shouting "For goodness sake, hold me close, don't let me go!" Do you have an opinion on this & if so is there anyone in control of things at the BBC you could mention it to?
P.S. I found out yesterday it's not just my idea there's a group on Facebook who want him to play everyone's favourite Gallifreyan as well
“Oh yeah, you really got me now, you've got me so I don't know what I'm doing"

Dear Philip,

Sounds a great idea. And if the BBC could clear copyright he could talk entirely in the lovely lyrics of great songs and the villains talk back in the lyrics of terrible songs.
