BAFTA-award winning Bob Baker, whose career spans five decades is a true giant of the genre.

Having co-written an astonishing 38 Doctor Who episodes writing for 5 different Doctors, the afternoon’s event will also explore his other contributions to iconic series such as Bergerac, Z Cars, Public Eye, and more recently co-writing the enormously successful Wallace and Gromit series of films.

Bob co-wrote many fan favourite episodes of Doctor Who including the 10th anniversary special ‘The Three Doctors’, ‘The Hand of Fear’ which saw the departure of classic companion Sarah Jane Smith as she left Tom Baker’s Doctor and ‘The Invisible Enemy’ which introduced a certain metal dog to the Doctor Who universe.

Bob will be joining us to talk about two of his enduring creations, Wallace and Gromit and K9, who was reintroduced to Millennials in the much loved School Reunion in 2006.
