Bob Baker Autobiography: K9 Stole My Trousers
The book which is due to be published 10th June pays tribute to some of the finest talents in TV that have worked alongside Bob during his rich and varied life; from his work with Nick Park on Aardman Animations’ Oscar and BAFTA-winning shorts, The Wrong Trousers, A Close Shave and A Matter of Loaf and Death, and the feature film The Curse of the Wererabbit to the recent regeneration of K9 in the 26 part series K9 & Friends.
A stalwart of HTV, Bob has worked with Sir Laurence Olivier, Leonard Rossiter, Ron Moody, Toyah Wilcox and Trevor Eve.
Among his many TV credits, Bob wrote several episodes of Bergerac starring John Nettles and the smash hit children’s show, Into the Labyrinth; Bob also script edited the popular crime series Shoestring. As part of a writing partnership with Dave Martin, meanwhile, Baker wrote The Claws of Axos (1971), The Mutants (1972), The Three Doctors (1973), The Sontaran Experiment (1975), The Hand of Fear (1976), The Invisible Enemy (1977), Underworld (1978), The Armageddon Factor (1979), as well as his solo Doctor Who script Nightmare on Eden (also 1979) – so expect plenty of Time Lord recollections!
The hardback edition of K9 Stole my Trousers can be purchased now on Amazon, priced £19.99
