It can be said, without debate, that Tom Baker’s turn as the Fourth Doctor is one of science fiction’s most iconic performances. The booming voice, the alien-like persona, the cocksure attitude; every bit the “genuine article.” However, if all you know of Baker is his time in the TARDIS, then you are certainly missing out. As incredible a performer Tom Baker is, he is equally an immensely interesting person. And now is the best time to get to know him!
Originally released in 1997, Who On Earth is Tom Baker?: An Autobiography gave an incredible insight into the life of the most popular actor to portray our beloved Time Lord. Of course, now it’s 2014 and books tend to disappear and go out of print over time; what’s a curious modern Whovian to do? Fear not, dear reader! The autobiography is now available in Kindle format from Amazon!
Detailing his life before, during, and after Doctor Who, the book is a must read for fans, new and old. Who On Earth is Tom Baker? is currently available for the fantastic price of £4.94. Now, dear reader, the question is this: have you read the book and what did you think? If you haven’t read it, are you planning on picking it up? Sound off below!
