Tom Baker was born 20th January 1934 and today celebrates his 80th birthday!

Of course, we all know Tom best for his portrayal as the legendary fourth Doctor. A role he remained in for seven years between 1974–1981, making him the longest serving incarnation to date and the one most fondly remembered of the classic era.

Fortunately Tom was able to make a brief but unforgettable appearance for Doctor Who’s 50th anniversary last year as the mysterious Curator. Will we ever see him again? Who knows…

Happy birthday, Tom! Have a jelly baby on us.

UPDATE: BBC interviews added.
