Bob Baker and Dave Martin met in Bristol during the late 1960’s. Their very first attempt at writing together almost made it to the big screen and from that time they’ve never looked back.

From the classic days of drama at HTV, working on shows like Sky and King of the Castle they progressed in the 1970’s and early 1980’s to becoming regulars writing for Doctor Who.

Their most famous creation is a robot dog which became a popular and unique assistant to The Doctor for four years and spawned its own television special.

In this Myth Makers, Nicholas Briggs discussed with Bob and Dave the creation of K9, its treatment by other writers, how the special K9 & Company came about – and what they thought of it!

Bob and Dave also reveal the ideas behind their Doctor Who scripts and discuss a working relationship spanning thirty years which has allowed them to pursue separate careers which include detective novels for Dave and the award-winning Wallace & Gromit for Bob.

And the future? …will K9 be back?

myth_makers_christopher_ryan.jpg ? In Stock £9.99

Christopher Ryan was born in London on the 28th of January 1950. He trained at the East 15 Acting School and began his career with The Glasgow Citizens Theatre in 1971.

 

Christopher’s first love is the stage and he has an extensive credit list for roles in theatres across the UK. It was while appearing in Can’t Pay, Won’t Pay at the Criterion Theatre, that he landed the role of Mike in The Young Ones. This led to parts in Bottom, Absolutely Fabulous, Only Fools and Horses, The Green, Green Grass, One Foot in the Grave and many other television series.

 

But to Doctor Who fans, it’s his monstrous performances as Kiv, General Staal and Commander Starkthat he is best known for.

Myth Makers David Brierley

mm brierley.jpg ? In Stock £9.99

At first glance, David Brierley would seem an unlikely choice to take over from John Leeson as the voice of K9. As one of Britain’s dedicated character actors David had built a career in television, theatre, radio and commercials that paid a living and still allowed him to walk down the street unnoticed. He was happy – he didn’t really want to be K9’s voice!

 

Perhaps it was the wealth of experience that David could bring to K9, his ability to give K9 more depth, that appealed to Christopher Barry and John Nathan-Turner when they were casting for Creature from the Pit. Whatever their reasons – they wanted David.

 

In this Myth Makers, Nicholas Briggs finds out why David finally took the job and the challenges and rewards he found. And why did he leave after only one season?

 

All this and more in the latest Myth Makers release.

Myth Makers Dick Mills

mmdickbig ? In Stock £9.99

"We found to our cost, and the Radiophonic Workshop's cost, that making it look easy proved to be our downfall."

In 1963, he helped DELIA DERBYSHIRE transform RON GRAINER's written DOCTOR WHO theme tune into sound and music.
