Tom Baker: A Bakerís Dozen Theatre Reviews


A Boat In The Back Yard

"Tom Baker plays the strange brooding old man with the boat-dream who makes strange observations on humanity, life and living and has some keen flashes of humour."


The Strongbox

"Tom Baker as the photographer has a prodigious part and his antics, his florid speech, his foppish and extravagant mannerisms are a joy to watch."

Arden of Faversham

"Tom Baker and Bill Greaves, the hired assassins, are most amusing and do not spare themselves even physically In some real knock-about comedy."

not the usual urbane domestic schemer but an undisguised predator who stalks her with un-winking eyes, leaves dangerous questions hovering In the air, and signals his successes with mirthless flashes of shark-like teeth."

"[Tom Baker] times his lines with the skill of a variety comedian, from the dry and wry to the exuberant."
