Starbasegeek.com would like to join other Doctor Who fans from around the world in wishing Tom Baker a happy birthday today. For many Whovians of my generation, Tom Baker is Doctor Who. Personally, my favorite has always been Jon Pertwee, but Tom Baker was the Doctor when the show was brought over to the US in the late 1970s.

Tom Baker
It’s staggering to me to think that Tom Baker is 81 years old. In my mind’s eye, he’ll always be the wildly energetic Time Lord that kept a bag of jelly babies in hand whilst running around with that giant scarf. He had a large number of incredibly strong stories, such as Genesis of the Daleks, City of Death, Pyramids of Mars, Brain of Morbius, The Robots of Death, Horror of Fang Rock, and The Talons of Weng-Chiang. It’s also always a treat to see him as the bad guy in The Golden Voyage of Sinbad, an awesome movie to watch.

Again, our happy birthday wishes to Tom Baker and we wish we could buy him a pint at his favorite pub.

  1. The Tardis = : D

  2. The greatest jester to grace the cosmos to be sure! The Master of Masters to be revered by all jesters, clowns, jugglers, buffoons and fools! Traveling throughout time and space to spread the word of chaos and confusion! No one can withstand the power of the gravitational pull of his circular logic and legerdemain! One could go mad simply by listening to his incessant techno babble and jibber jabber! Would you like a Jelly Baby?! Hee hee! Ho ho! Ha ha!

    ‘The jester is an annoying fellow…’

  3. Him best Doctor ever! With curly brown hair and floppy hat and silly scarf! Him ride around on me lumpy boil back! Me shuffle back and forth and be best companion ever! Me better than dumb metal dog K-9! Me big star now!

    No kill I!

  4. A time traveler that flies around in a little blue box sounds like questionable magic to me but for a man that doesn’t carry an axe he has the heart of a warrior! He uses his wit and words as ammo, bombarding his enemy with deduction and logic, and at times they seem more dangerous than any weapon I know of! It would be an honor to share a nice tankard of dwarven space ale with him and join him in battle with my trusty axe!

    Grum is not dum!
