Why am I reading through posts on Tom Baker’s website (yes, he has a website)?
Oh, right, because occasionally this happens:
Question asker: So, as I’m currently trying to finish my ph.d. about the “Relationships between the Doctor and Early Male Companions beside the Obvious Female Damsels in Distress”, might you have any light to shed upon the issue of the Doctor’s lesser than usual friendliness towards mr. Sullivan?
You must remember that I came from somewhere else, a place where patience and politeness were not highly regarded. I had also just gone through a process called regeneration and found myself in a new body which felt very very odd. I also felt that Harry was better looking than I was, and I was jealous. Before this transformation I was taller and wore elegant clothes with lovely frilly shirts and spoke with a charming lisp and also dyed my hair white. So I hope you will forgive me my slight impatience with Harry in the early days. Later we became great friends though the BBC did not write about this.
All the best
"So you are going to lose everything you love, family, friends and all possessions. And so am I, and so is everyone. This is a scary thought, so scary that most faith people can’t bear it. I personally embrace it and meantime try to be cheerful and offer to carry old ladies’ bags. I also laugh a lot though that may be nerves. Who knows?"

and this is why I love him so much
