Tom Baker - Who on Earth is Tom Baker (Read by Tom Baker) (1997 HarperCollins Audiobooks Ltd UK) Abridged
You wonâ€™t have to hide behind the sofa while listening to this tape â€¦Imagine a cross between Spike Milligan, Peter Ustinov and David Niven and youâ€™re some way to imagining the writings of Tom Baker.
After an Irish Catholic childhood, God service, National Service and a spell in the Merchant Navy, Tom Baker became an actor. Widely experienced in film, theatre and on television, he is most well known, in sixty-eight countries, for his portrayal of Doctor Who. To many, he is the ultimate Doctor Who.
Far exceeding the usual expectations of an actorly autobiography, â€˜Who on Earth is Tom Baker?â€™ is a richly coloured, startlingly wild black comedy. Tom Baker is the kind of man who could drink the old off the wagon Anthony Hopkins under the table and who spends much of his leisure time mowing the grass around his own gravestone in the local churchyard. His memoirs are full of anarchic humour with surreal, ribald and revealing anecdotes.
