A nice intimate chat with my favourite Dr Who

I love Tom Baker, the best Doctor ever, subjectively. This recording is a fireside chat with tea and crumpets, chatting about his life. To know him is to love him . Any questions? lol.

Who was and is Tom Baker!

Great time listening as always... has a way of storytelling that captivates. A peek behind the scenes of the man who would be the 4th.

The Wonderful Tom Baker!

This is an enjoyable listen. Tom recounts some of his past in an amusing way. Toms autobiography “who on Earth is Tom Baker” is a title to seek out. Probably the best autobiography I have listened to, but does not appear on Audible as of date. Hopefully they will offer it soon!

Easy Listening

A little glimpse of Tom Baker’s life as an interview, At 80 he is as witty, cheerful and engaging as ever. Very easy & enjoyable to listen to, if you loved him as the 4th Doctor Who you’ll love listening to this book.
