The Two Toms

Continuing our celebration of the brilliance that is Tom Baker, Tom Baker Wednesday now features something to tickle your toes!

Get ready to laugh till you cry as we’ve got a very special clip for you to watch courtesy of Jon Culshaw from his one-man ITV show Alter Ego broadcast in 2001. Culshaw of course went on to star in Dead Ringers which featured Doctor Who-related sketches on several occasions, with sketches including Christopher Eccleston telling his parents he’s going to star in Doctor Who, the Cybermen reuniting with the Fourth Doctor and Christmas with the Doctors.

None of the sketches are as sweet or as funny as when Jon Culshaw impersonates Tom Baker (the impression really is spot on, you have to see it to believe it!) to throw a few questions at… Tom Baker!

Witness hilarious one liners as the two reminisce about marriage, Doctor Who and just how fantastic their voices are. And don’t forget to check out the scene at the end where the Fourth Doctor, played by Culshaw, goes to work as a “builder’s labourer” and gets a shock at seeing K-9 and spots a lovely lady!

Jon Culshaw is a well known celebrity Doctor Who fan and even played the voice of the Fourth Doctor in the Big Finish audio adventure The Kingmaker (have you heard that one? It’s utterly brilliant!).

This sketch is truly a joy to watch, not only for the Culshaw impression but also for the very sweet and very witty reactions that Tom Baker gives as he converses with him.

A true delight to watch, my dears, a true delight.
