It’s always good to learn from the best, and few writers have had the success of Bafta award winner Bob Baker, whose career spans many genres, shows and fictional universes – including Doctor Who.
As the co-creator (with Dave Martin) of K9, Baker added a key element to Doctor Who during its 1970s peak. Beyond Doctor Who – where with Dave Martin he wrote six serials between 1971 and 1977 before contributing a further three scripts solo – his other credits include television scripts for Bergerac, Z Cars, Shoestring and Thick As Thieves.
