Review:

“Simply wonderful”
Eclipse Magazine 11/97

“Baker’s superb delivery of his own fine, funny prose shows how tape can enhance the printed autobiography.”
Guardian 13/11/97

From the Back Cover:

WHO ON EARTH IS TOM BAKER?

You won't have to hide behind the sofa while listening to this tape …Imagine a cross between Spike Milligan, Peter Ustinov and David Niven and you'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, 'Who on Earth is Tom Baker?' 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.
