Tom Baker versus Frank Bough - the movie!
I watched that strange interview that Tom Baker did with Frank Bough on an old 70s edition of Nationwide the other day. He obviously was in a bit of mood.
The peculiar shots of Tom used in the run-up to the feature suggest a man completely befuddled by the situation and his terse answers to Bough's 'Sunday colour magazine' questioning cement his reputation as someone who doesn't suffer fools.
It's a strange beast to be sure. And one that begs the question what happened off-screen to lead Tom to be so off hand and flippant.
We will probably never know...
