Publishers Blurb :

The hilarious, rumbustious and gloriously indiscreet autobiography of the most famous and best-loved Doctor WhoTom Baker’s autobiography covers his childhood in the poor spirited Irish community in Liverpool, during which he developed a penchant for lying, a passion for football and a suspicion of priests; his six years as a monk – in which he spent much time trying to avoid eye contact with others; his struggling times as an out-of-work actor and; on to appearances alongside Olivier at the National Theatre, to work with Pasolino and, finally, his time as the ultimate Doctor Who.Far exceeding the usual expectations of an actorly autobiography, Who on Earth Is Tom Baker? is a blackly comic scream. Baker is the kind of man who could drink the old off-the-wagon Anthony Hopkins under the table. He is a natural writer of Rabbelasian, or at least Spike Milligan, proportions and is, of course, one of the most familiar faces in the British acting world.
