Looking back: Dr Who in St Andrews!

Dr Who fans converged on St Andrews Book Bang in Market Street in 1978 hoping to have their books signed by the then man of the moment, Tom Baker, a favourite Doctor of many followers of the show.

Lyn Evans commented on St Andrews Photo corner that Tom visited a book group and stayed all day, keeping in character and entertaining the children.

An inscription left in Bren Thompson’s book read: “Love to you, from Dr Who, Tom Baker.”
