“Baker’s superb delivery of his own fine, funny prose shows how tape can enhance the printed autobiography.”
From the Back Cover
WHO ON EARTH IS TOM BAKER?
You won't have to hide behind the sofa while listening to this tape …Imagine a cross between Spike Milligan, Peter Ustinov and David Niven and you're some way to imagining the writings of Tom Baker.
After an Irish Catholic childhood, God service, National Service and a spell in the Merchant Navy, Tom Baker became an actor. Widely experienced in film, theatre and on television, he is most well known, in sixty-eight countries, for his portrayal of Doctor Who. To many, he is the ultimate Doctor Who.
Far exceeding the usual expectations of an actorly autobiography, 'Who on Earth is Tom Baker?' is a richly coloured, startlingly wild black comedy. Tom Baker is the kind of man who could drink the old off the wagon Anthony Hopkins under the table and who spends much of his leisure time mowing the grass around his own gravestone in the local churchyard. His memoirs are full of anarchic humour with surreal, ribald and revealing anecdotes.See all Product Description

Not one for faint hearts and not a book to enjoy. Neither is their any depth, what are described are a series of befuddled mixed up scenes which go nowhere to a answer the question of the title.
Who is Tom Baker? Answer from this book is an almost continously depressed social inadequate, of negligible talent who somehow has survived despite being totally screwed up by events in his life. Not what I wanted to read.
