Product Description

Product Description

Bob Baker, co-writer of three Oscar and BAFTA winning Wallace & Gromit films, creator of K9, and writer of numerous Doctor Who episodes, releases his autobiography this June.

A stalwart of HTV, Bob has worked with Sir Laurence Olivier, Leonard Rossiter, Ron Moody, Toyah Willcox and Trevor Eve. Among his many TV credits, Bob wrote a number of episodes of Doctor Who with co-writer Dave Martin, several seasons of Bergerac starring John Nettles (of Midsomer Murders fame) and the smash hit children's show, Into the Labyrinth; Bob also script edited the popular crime series Shoestring.

Bob is perhaps best known for 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.

Among his recent work, Bob has just finished the first 26-part series of the regenerated K9 Adventures, currently showing on the Disney Channel and Channel 5 and is gearing up for a second series in the coming year.

Bob’s life has been rich and varied; his adventures outside of his illustrious career range from a wine-tasting tour of France and mad sea voyages with the legendary Keith Floyd to playing jazz with John Fortune of Bremner, Bird and Fortune. K9 Stole My Trousers is a tribute to some of the finest talents in TV in the last fifty years, both people Bob worked with and people he considered himself lucky to know in his personal life.

5.0 out of 5 stars The quiet genius! 4 July 2013
Format:Hardcover
This is a fantastic read. Witty, fun and full of amazing life stories from a screen writing genius of our times. Bob has been there done it and got the T shirt, BAFTAs and OSCARS too! Each page you read leads you to another moment in a personal journey that has touched more lives than many people know. If you've loved the original Dr Who series, Wal & Grom, Bergerac, Shoestring, and a whole host of other family favourites including the new series about K9 for which Bob was the creator then this is a must read.
Little know of the 'quiet genius' of Bob Baker and this book should be the start of a bigger profile for a man who's legacy is already the stuff of legend!

5.0 out of 5 stars A cracking read 2 July 2013
By R...
Format:Hardcover
This is a brilliant memoir from Bob Baker, creator of K9 and co-writer of the Oscar & BAFTA winning Wallace and Gromit films.

Funny, engaging and undeniably interesting - this is part autobiography, part social history and at other times it's a rollicking adventure on the high seas with his friend Keith Floyd.

On finishing, I couldn't help but think to myself, `life should be an adventure'. Bob Baker has certainly embraced that ethos over the years and it shows through all of his ups, downs and escapades which he relates in an exceptionally charming manner.
