From the Inside Flap
Tony Robinson is a much-loved actor, presenter and comedy icon. His career has lasted over fifty years, taking him from child stardom in the first stage production of Oliver! through a series of sometimes riotous misadventures before he landed the role of Baldrick, loyal servant and turnip aficionado in Blackadder.
Along the way he was bullied by Steve Marriott, snubbed by Liza Minnelli, and was pushed into a stinking London dock by John Wayne. He infuriated Rex Harrison, wrote and starred in Maid Marian and Her Merry Men, and created national outrage in the cutting-edge comedy series Who Dares Wins, before exposing his bits in the live touring show with great aplomb. He also presented Time Team for twenty years, coralling a group of quirky, opinionated academics as they ruthlessly dug up countless gardens in the name of archaeology.
Now, in his long-awaited autobiography, he also reveals his passions and commitments, writes about his friends and family, and describes the sadness of losing both his parents to dementia. Packed full of incident and insight, No Cunning Plan is a funny, self-deprecating and always entertaining read.
