Cover blurb:
This is a fascinating documentary about Tom Baker. It’s unauthorised by the BBC.

The Doctor is everyone’s favourite Time Lord. And Tom Baker is everyone’s favourite Doctor.

With his manic grin, his wild hair and his mile long scarf, Baker became the definitive Doctor. His wicked sense of humour and naturally gentle personality added whole new dimensions to the character.

This video includes a highly revealing interview with Baker that’s never before been seen on television or video. Margarita in hand, he soaks up the California sunshine and talks openly about his time as the Doctor.

And with interviews with DW fans and experts, the video provides fascinating and original insights into both Tom Baker the actor and Tom Baker the Doctor.

Produced and directed by James Engwell

So read the text on the VHS release of this rare documentary in 1997. Roll on 25 years and Reeltime Pictures has managed to make it available to fans again, in a restored version worthy of DVD.

As well as Tom Baker, the documentary features interviews with ELISABETH SLADEN, NICHOLAS COURTNEY, MATTHEW WATERHOUSE and TERRANCE DICKS ... making it a truly unique production.

SPECIAL FEATURE: As a bonus, we’ve included a new short documentary THE WHY AND HOWE OF WHO, looking at how and why the video was made, featuring those involved, including director JAMES ENGWELL and presented by DOCTOR WHO historian DAVID J HOWE.

This production is not made with the consent or approval of the BBC or BBC Studios. Reeltime Pictures are solely responsible for the content.
