Search - List of Books by Bob Baker

Bob Baker (born in Bristol, England in 1939) is a British television and film writer.

His most famous contributions have been as the author of four scripts for the Wallace and Gromit films The Wrong Trousers, A Close Shave and The Curse of the Were-Rabbit and A Matter of Loaf and Death (in which a character is named after him).

Bob Baker is also known for numerous scripts for the Doctor Who television series between 1971 and 1979 including:

  • The Claws of Axos (1971)
  • The Mutants (1972)
  • The Three Doctors (1973)
  • The Sontaran Experiment (1975)
  • The Hand of Fear (1976)
  • The Invisible Enemy (1977)
  • Underworld (1978)
  • The Armageddon Factor (1979)
  • Nightmare of Eden (1979)
For all but the last of these, Baker collaborated with Dave Martin. Together they were nicknamed "The Bristol Boys" by the Doctor Who production teams with whom they worked.

Baker and Martin's most notable contributions to the Doctor Who mythos were probably the robot computer K-9 (created for The Invisible Enemy) and the renegade Time Lord Omega (created for The Three Doctors, Doctor Who's tenth anniversary story). Several of Baker's stories had elements of hard science not often found in Doctor Who, although they have also been criticized for scientific inaccuracy. Together with Martin, they also created fantasy television serials for children including the 1975 Sky.

Baker's other contributions to British television include scripts for episodes of Shoestring and Bergerac. On 16 March 2006, it was reported in the free newspaper Metro that he was working on a new animated series featuring K-9, K-9.

Baker currently resides in Stroud, Gloucestershire.

Laurie Booth working with Baker have recently created a website ([1]).

As of 2010, Baker is now the only surviving scriptwriter from the Third Doctor era.
