Who On Earth Is Tom Baker: An Autobiography
I wasn’t originally going to review this book as it probably won’t interest most people, but I was just too astounded by the content not to.
For a brief background, Tom Baker was the actor who played the fourth doctor for the BBC series Doctor Who from 1974 to 1981 and my favorite doctor. This autobiography however has me questioning my taste. Why? Penises. More specifically, Mr. Baker’s fascination with them, or at least his own.
Having never had a fascination with penises, or indeed genitalia in general, I find this somewhat horrifying. What’s more, he never uses the word penis. Instead “skittle” is his choice of euphemism.
If like me you are American, Skittles are a candy, which will never be seen in the same light again. I’d regale you with some quotes but I shared one with my friend G and she hasn’t spoken to me since. Also I don’t have permission to do so.
If you are a Doctor Who fan and love Tom Baker, I do not recommend this book. I can’t stop spraying my Kindle with Lysol frankly.
As an aside, Battle Bots is back on ABC on Sunday night! I love this show! Try it! (Not you G, I already know you won’t like it).
