Welcome to my website. I hope you enjoy reading it, and that you find what you are looking for.
A reminder below of the “Beast from the East” last Spring – the bonus being a lovely image for Xmas
My most recent venture in the Theatre has been to appear in “Once Seen on Blue Peter” – a play by Tim Whitnall, at the Edinburgh Fringe 2018 where it received 5 star reviews.
I visited The BBC at Media City in Salford Quays recently and was flattered and thrilled to discover I was included in the Blue Peter Gold Badge Walk of Fame outside the studios, and leading to the BP garden.
I was privileged to visit the University of Central Lancashire, UCLAN, in March where the students and staff had produced a recreation of one of the missing Doctor Who episodes, “Mission to the Unknown” which was the “teaser” for the massive 12 Part serial “The Dalek Masterplan” in which I appeared with William Hartnell, the first (and to my mind) the best ever Doctor. It was a splendid piece of work by UCLAN, directed by a senior tutor and Doctor Who fan, Andrew Ireland. We now await the BBC’s decision on whether it will be released on DVD. It certainly deserves to be, and has caused an enormous degree of anticipation from fans of the programme.
DOCTOR WHO (Peter was companion to the original Doctor, William Hartnell)
BLUE PETER ( Presented the show for ten and a half years, 1967-78 )
WITH ANIMALS ( Remember Lulu, the baby elephant from Chessington? and much more)

I have taken note of the following from Pip Madeley on Twitter. I am unable to edit the early part of my CV from an earlier website so I acknowledge the omission here. Thanks Pip. x
Your CV is incredible, Peter! I did spot one omission, your memorable appearance in ‘Phoenix From The Flames’ on “Fantasy World Cup” (ITV 1998) with Baddiel & Skinner, see here: https://youtu.be/S5-BDAUgpFQ (skip to 21mins 30secs in)
