An Autobiography

Available from

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 Wilcox 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 (now 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.

The hardback edition of ‘K9 Stole My Trousers’ will be released in June 2013. Pre-order today and receive your copy signed by Bob Baker himself.

      I think he should, especially for the fiftieth anniversary. Even if it’s just a dream sequence or flashback scenario. 🙂
