Look Who’s Talking

Hirst Books have announced the release of Look Who’s Talking, a compilation of former Doctor Who star Colin baker’s weekly column in the Bucks Free Press.

Colin Baker - Look Who's TalkingTo many, Colin Baker is the sixth Doctor Who; to some, he is the villainous Paul Merroney in the classic BBC drama The Brothers. But to the residents of South Buckinghamshire he is a weekly voice of sanity in a world that seems intent on confounding him. Marking the 15th anniversary of his regular feature in the Bucks Free Press, this compilation includes over 100 of his most entertaining columns, from 1995 to 2009, complete with new linking material.

With fierce intelligence and a wicked sense of humour, Colin tackles everything from the absurdities of political correctness to the joys of being an actor, slipping in vivid childhood memories, international adventures and current affairs in a relentless rollercoaster of reflections, gripes and anecdotes.

Pulling no punches, taking no prisoners and sparing no detail, the ups and downs of Colin life are shared with panache, honesty and clarity, and they are every bit as entertaining and surreal as his trips in that famous police box… for a world that is bewildering, surprising and wondrous, one need look no further than modern Britain, and Colin Baker is here to help you make sense of it all, and to give you a good laugh along the way

We’ve featured extracts from Colin’s column here on Kasterborous from time to time – if they’re good examples of what is likely to be in this book, then it’s oing to be well worth the money!

Visit hirstbooks.com to purchase a signed copy of Look Who’s Talking for just £9.99.
