Tom Baker: “Doctor Who Almost Makes Me Immortal!”
Tom’s reign as Doctor Number Four lasted from 1975 to 1981, making him the longest-running Doctor… But how does he feel about that?
“Well, it’s a bit daunting really. I’m now 29,200 days old. It’s a pretty daunting thing. I can’t believe it, you know – all that time has passed. Isn’t it amazing; it almost makes me immortal – people are still stopping me in the street and saying: ‘you were really influential in my life.’ I like that a lot…”
And in the minds of many-a-generation, Tom will always be their Doctor. He’s right, of course: it’s a sort of immortality!
