Watching Doctor Who with Tom Baker

tom bakerA curious tale from the Lancashire Evening Post:
A playwright is on the hunt for a Preston family who invited Doctor Who star Tom Baker into their home to watch an episode of the cult sci-fi series.

The star arrived at their front door on November 13, 1976, as he was travelling back from a fan convention in Blackpool.

He could not wait until his return to London to see the latest episode and so found himself sitting alongside a stunned family as they watched him on screen.

Now, Scottish writer Simon Farquhar is researching the incident for a new production he is penning for the BBC, titled Teatime with Tom Baker, and is asking for the help of Evening Post readers.

  1. I'd have been more alarmed had it been a Dalek.
