Baker #501.

Oh Tom Baker Say It Aint So. The last interview? Hope not. This is a man whose brain bubbles with anecdotes like an active volcano. A force of nature in every sense of the word. And yet he is also a man who probably understands when to leave the stage better than most.
             It is just us who compel him to stay. We never want not to hear that voice.
             In his bloody eighties and still causing trouble. Did anyone read any of the newspapers this week as he lambasted the elderly for voting for a British exit from Europe. He was told off for letting down his age group. Here is a man who will not be told off. A man who's voice rings out as strong as he wishes. A man who is entitled to his opinion even if you do not agree and a man who has earned the right to speak his mind. Actually as have nearly every man or woman of his age. They deserve respect and they deserve support. Perhaps we are not going to like all the wisdom they have to share but we have to listen. Even when they do not agree. Because like it or not "they" are "we".
             I am so looking forward to reading this interview.
             How else could you follow up that last big #500?
