IMDb profile

Bob Baker (born 26 July 1939) was a Doctor Who writer most notable for the creation of K9, a character he partially owned the rights to. He made use of these rights in authorising the creation of the K9 TV series. He often wrote with Dave Martin.

Beyond the world of Doctor Who, Baker's greatest success is as a writer for Aardman Animation's Wallace and Gromit series. He co-wrote the short films The Wrong Trousers, A Close Shave and A Matter of Loaf and Death with animator Nick Park, and was one of four credited writers on the feature film Wallace & Gromit: The Curse of the Were-Rabbit; he received a BAFTA for The Curse of the Were-Rabbit and another for A Matter of Loaf and Death.

A Close Shave features a robotic dog as its antagonist.
