The Quarry Theatre presents

John Leeson: A Dog’s Life

Wednesday 12th December, 7.30pm

Update: K9 from the original series will be making an appearance at this event!

An evening of reminiscence awaits!

DOCTOR WHO is the world’s longest running science fiction series and one of the most popular characters to have appeared alongside Tom Baker and David Tennant is K9, the Doctor’s robot dog… voiced by John!

John Leeson: A Dog’s Life retraces some of his steps across a freewheeling and multi-faceted career as an actor, let alone wearing ‘hats’ variously as a hospital porter, a (failed) encyclopedia salesman, a radio and television continuity ‘voice’, a question-setter for the BBC’s ‘Mastermind’, a wine educator and writer, a magistrate, a collaborating playwright, a local political candidate, a provider of onscreen food for ‘Poirot’ – and latterly finding himself best known as ‘the voice of K9’ after nearly 40 years in the DOCTOR WHO dog house!

Now how did that happen? Is he now slowing down?

Come and find out as John invites you to enjoy some of his memories, including those of some of the big ‘names’ he has worked with across the years!
