Local Tom Baker

Tom Baker – the one and only – has been in the press alot recently as part of promotion for his “comeback”, the Doctor Who audio adventure serial Hornet’s Nest. Most recently he spoke to his local publication, the Rye & Battle Observer.

Naturally it is full of those remarkable observations and anecdotes only Tom Baker has, including this spot-on observation:

Relishing his past – “Being an old Doctor Who has its social advantages. I’m licensed to offer jelly babies!” – he is nevertheless fascinated by current developments, such as allowing product placement on British commercial TV.

“That’s really going to change things. Did you see The Truman Show? Wasn’t that a wonderful film? Always taking him by the elbow and moving him into ads.”

And on the matter of his website, www.tom-baker.co.uk, Tom would like everyone to know that this is his only website ever.

“This is the only one,” says the 75-year-old emphatically with that distinctive, rich, deep voice. “A lot of people have said they have got the official site but they haven’t.”

So now you know. It’s a good interview, head on over there now!
