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.

The positives?

Dear Tom,

You have mentioned many of the "glass half empty"aspects of growing older. Aside from the (deadly) alternative, are there any positives that you have found to growing older?

Thanks for keeping the childhood dreams and the adventures of the Fourth Doctor alive!

Dear Anthony,

As I grow older and older, I am filled with dread. Life is so short and time so precious and mysterious. We have so little of it before pop goes the weasel!

Average life: less than a thousand months; less one third for sleep! Four thousand weeks, max! About 28,000 days. About two point five billion seconds.

Look, I won't go, I simply don't have the time.
