Have you ever wanted to shout at the automated phone system, rail against the state of the roads or wonder why oh why bureaucracy has to get in the way of everything? Colin Baker has been writing a weekly column for his local paper, the Bucks Free Press, for the past 21 years, giving readers the benefit of his wisdom on many and varied topics. Now you can enjoy a collection of Colin’s Bucks Free columns, all in one place.

Colin Baker describes himself as actor, columnist, writer, husband, father, Wycombe Wanderers fan, grumpy old man, and amateur zoo keeper.

For the past 21 years, Colin has written a weekly column for his local newspaper, the Bucks Free Press, discussing many and varied topics from renewing his car insurance to local government, from football to the state of the world. Colin continues to write his weekly column. He is aiming for the world record of the longest running weekly column by one author, without a break … whatever that record may be! He can also be found commenting on the world at large via his Twitter feed.

For many he is Doctor Who, having played the role during the 1980s and still happy to meet fans all over the world at conventions and fan gatherings. With many acting credits to his name including The Brothers in which he played the ruthless Paul Merroney, he is a well-respected figure equally at home on the stage or a television screen, and in more recent years starring once again as the Doctor in audio plays by the much respected Big Finish Productions.

Includes illustrations by the award winning Owen Claxton, who also created the cover art and the image of Colin for the back cover.

Please note, this book will be despatched end of February/beginning of March 2017.

    I read his other two Bucks Free Press books last year and absolutely loved them especially because you can pick it up – read a few and because they aren’t connected – can come back to it anytime – so good

    Pretty good way to get a dedicated signature from him if you dont want to go to a convention.

    He’s starting to remind me of my late Grandfather. He always used to write stuff in the Times that was occasionally a bit controversial and it got published quite frequently too.
