Tom Baker circa 1979

This post has nothing to do with writing for DWM. Instead, it’s just a handy place to lodge this short but rather lovely video which I uploaded to YouTube. It shows Tom Baker circa 1979 (identified by the fact that in a later sequence I’ve cut out, there’s a cab adorned with an advert for 2000 AD featuring the logo the comic used over ’79 and early 1980) in Beaumont Square, East London, 1979. He’s attending a charity event held by the London Taxi Drivers’ Fund for Underprivileged Children.

There he is, his Tom-ness, surrounded by balloons and admirers, signing autographs. I like it when he spots the camera, does a wave and rubs his nose.

Thanks go to Elaine Penn who passed the footage on to me in the first place.
