Peter Purves Book Signings

Happy Birthday to Peter Purves who launches his autobiography today as he celebrates his 70th year!

The launch of Here’s One I Wrote Earlier takes place at The Kennel Club in London’s Mayfair today, with Peter beginning publicity for his book this morning (February 10th) on BBC Breakfast News.

Here’s One I Wrote Earlier - available from Amazon for just £11.39 – should be of huge interest to fans of the 1960s Doctor Who era as it covers Peter’s time on the series as well as referring to some interesting relationships.

As well as various local TV appearances, Peter is also set to be seen on The Paul O’Grady Show (broadcast scheduled March 19th) as well as Richard & Judy, and The Wright Stuff.
