Forum rules
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.

Hi Tom, there is a sense of the riduculous don't you think in the vision of a Brit posing with ,
'Best Foot Forward'
'Socks Pulled Up'
'A Stiff Upper Lip'
accompanied by 'Keeping His Pecker Up"

Jolly good show,What?
Take care, Luv Jillx

I've always suspected it was a nanny or a boss or a mother saying these things. They all mean: now don't make a fuss and don't be silly and especially, take my advice and stop thinking.

The last one might be: "And above all, keep your pecker up." This last one would get a gale of laughter in the USA. I often used it in interviews over there and always said with great sincerity and sometimes tears in my left eye.
