Cover blurb:
"The Doctor will never change. He may grow old and fade away, but he will always be the same... so the fun is — how do you colour that?"

Ask DOCTOR WHO fans who their favourite Doctor is and the majority are likely to name TOM BAKER's portrayal above all others. Much of Tom's popularity has been fuelled by his reticence to appear in public or discuss his time in the programme. Little is actually known about the man or his memories of being the longest running Time Lord troubleshooter.

At last this has changed. In an exclusive interview by NICHOLAS BRIGGS, at the location used for THE ANDROID INVASION, Tom discusses frankly his life and career.

Cover blurb:
Mysterious.

Bohemian.

Enigmatic.

All these words have been used to describe Tom Baker and his portrayal of the fourth incarnation of DOCTOR WHO. For seven seasons, longer than any other actor, Tom brought the series to new heights of popularity around the world. The locations for the story "The Android Invasion" provides [sic] the backdrop for a rare and very candid interview with the man some people say was the definitive "WHO".

"BRILLIANT, best Myth Makers yet..."
