    Colin Baker's career as an actor spans six decades of television and theatre. To many he is Paul Merroney from the BBC's much-loved 1970s drama The Brothers. To others he is the unhinged Bayban the Butcher in Blake's 7, or Inspector Morse on stage. Or perhaps some know him best simply as Colin Baker himself, the man who entered the jungle and won over the nation in I'm a Celebrity, Get Me Out of Here. Yet, millions know him best as the colourfully-dressed Sixth Doctor in Doctor Who, a character that has endured - and will continue to endure - through generations. This is Colin's own story, in conversation with interviewer Nicholas Briggs. Colin Baker's known and much-loved to Doctor Who fans as the Sixth Doctor, a tempestuous, passionate traveller of time and space. His appearance as a psychotic space-criminal in Blake's 7 story City at the Edge of the World is one of the most regarded guest spots in this popular BBC Sci-Fi hit. Colin has also found different audiences with his appearance in I'm a Celebrity Get Me Out of Here in 2012, as well as becoming a familiar personality in shows such as Come Dine With Me, and Celebrity Antiques Road Show.

    Audio
    Benedict Cumberbatch reads Ian Kelly's biography of one of the most beguiling and controversial individuals of any age. In this fascinating biography of the notorious libertine, Ian Kelly draws on documents by Casanova, his friends and his lovers (male and female) in order to bring fresh insights to the man's life and world. The sights and smells of Eighteenth Century Europe are brought keenly to life, as are the colourful incidents of Casanova's life. As the young cleric he embarked upon a scandalous affair with a married woman, fleeing eventually to Constantinople. He created a stir at the French court of King Louis XV, began intrigues in London that led him to a soaking in the Thames, and sought to meet Catherine the Great at a ball in St Petersburg. His own memoirs ensured his lasting fame, and changed the way we think and write about ourselves and about sex. Benedict Cumberbatch (Sherlock; The Imitation Game; Star Trek Into Darkness) is the reader of this abridged edition, first broadcast on BBC Radio 4 Extra.
