I must admit K9 is one of my favourite characters on Doctor Who. When I first met John at a convention last year he was saying that he thought it odd that he would be remembered for the robot dog when he had done so many other things. So when I heard he had written his autobiography I decided I would get a copy and read about all those other things.
I did really enjoy this. John writes very well. His humour and intelligence comes across very clearly on the page. This isn't an emotional book but rather an interesting look at the life of a hard working actor who diversified into voice work, writing, cooking, wine tasting, as well as being a Justice of the Peace. He also talks affectionately about his work on Doctor Who. As well as an amusing story about telling a certain renowned atheist about the ghosts that were in his house growing up. The book is full such anecdotes from his first convention experience where he came 2nd in the K9 sound alike competition to having to get home from filming in Germany in what sounds like a truly harrowing journey. This is one I'd definitely recommend to other fans of K9 it is good to see a glimpse of the man behind the voice.
