Tom Baker Goodies!

Tom Baker and Doctor Who fans alike, here are a couple of Christmas gifts that you’ll want to find under the tree this year!

The 2011 Tom Baker calendar is available for purchase for £9.99 and will give you 12 new and very informal pictures of Tom to keep you company next year. You can also grab an autographed calendar for £15.00. Kasterborous previously reported that this would be available and now finally you can get your hands on one.

Also available from the Tom Baker official website is an audio recording, read by Baker himself, of his novel The Boy Who Kicked Pigs. Available from it is described as:

“The Boy Who Kicked Pigs, written and read by the great Tom Baker is a gruesome, but hilariously funny story about the fate of a boy with a habit of kicking pigs who causes havoc in the community around him…the book is illustrated by David Roberts whose black ink sketches reflect the bizarre world of Robert Caligari, the boy antihero of the story. Some of these illustrations feature in this download.

“To date, The Boy Who Kicked Pigs is Tom’s only published work apart from his autobiography Who on Earth is Tom Baker?

The Boy Who Kicked Pigs remains in print and is published in a number of different forms – from presentation hardback to paperback – and has been translated into 8 other languages – including Chinese! This very special audiobook includes an introduction by Tom in which he explains some of the background to this gruesome tale.”

The book is full of Tom’s usually weird and wonderful offerings and is truly a delight to listen to, so get purchasing now. To find out more details on how to order these goodies, visit

What happens when an eight year old kid watches the 1993 repeat run of Planet of the Daleks? He pretty much ends up here writing about the show that grabbed hold of him and never let go!
