    I think my favourite bit is “Astonishingly enough there were two doctors in the house, well three if you included me”

    I also liked the bit where he complained his room was too small for a proper hanging.

    I wish I'd lived a life like Tom's but then not everyone can. Francis Bacon buying Tom a GnT was a highlight. That sort of thing doesn't happen to many of us.

    I always thought that a televised biography of Tom Baker's life would be fascinating. Definitely a life filled with great happiness and great unhappiness.

    He really has lived an interesting life, I'd even go so far as to say he's the most interesting man in the world. Can you imagine Tom Baker in those commercials saying "stay thirsty, my friend."?

    I wonder if even Rasputin, whom Tom played in Nicholas and Alexandra, was as interesting as Tom.

    Didn't Rasputin show up in one of Tom's early audios (Tsar wars?)

    Not a chance. The world still exists after his death.

    With Tom, solipsism may be justified at last.

    Many apologies to Brian Blessed
