About the Author

Mr Bernard Cribbins has been showing off and telling stories since the beginning of time. As an actor he has appeared in films alongside Peter Sellers, David Niven, Peter Cushing, James Mason and Jerry Lewis, and he has rarely been off the small screen since it was invented. Highlights here include The Wombles, Doctor Who, Fawlty Towers, The Good Old Days and, of course, Jackanory. As a singer Bernard has infiltrated the Top Ten twice (so far) with 'The Hole in the Ground' and 'Right Said Fred', both of which were produced by the legendary George Martin. His ambition is to play Clint Eastwood's father in a western and he lives in Surrey with his wife, Gill.


The wittiest, warmest celebrity memoir I can remember reading -- Jake Kerridge * Sunday Express *
A rollicking good read - charming, unassuming and full of amiable, homespun wit * The Oldie *
Cribbins is reliably fascinating. This book is an essential ramble around his life and times -- Roger Lewis * Daily Mail *
A jaunty read, as jaunty as Cribbins is in person * The Times *
The book reads like . . . it's Bernard sitting down and telling a story -- Steve Wright * BBC Radio 2 *
It's written in a conversational style which is breezy without ever getting cloying. It's wonderful. It's almost as if it's just been transcribed -- Danny Baker * BBC Radio 5 Live *
It's hard not to smile turning the pages of Bernard Who? * Trinity Mirror *
In this chirpy memoir, the veteran actor looks back on 75 years in show business . . . Delightful reminiscences abound of an eclectic career . . . A fitting celebration of one of our most versatile and enduring acting talents * Sunday Express *
Listening to Bernard Cribbins talk about his life is just like sitting in front of the telly on our mother's knee hearing him read a story for an episode of the BBC children's show, Jackanory. A master storyteller who feels like a great friend or a kindly uncle from the moment he opens his mouth . . . Bernard is full of memories and anecdotes from a jam-packed career * Yours *
He's an all-rounder: a comic actor who can move you to tears; a shapeshifter who is always somehow Bernard Cribbins. If anyone else subtitled their autobiography '75 Years of Doing Just About Everything', it might seem like hubris but in Cribbins' case it looks like modesty . . . Now 89, he remains the voice of our childhood . . . he trots through his life's adventures with a candour and ease . . . He writes as he talks so you can "hear" his voice * Daily Express *
Hugely enjoyable * The Weekly News *
His matey memoirs achieve his self-proclaimed aim of capturing the feel of a natter and a pint down the pub with an old friend. A gentle, endearing read that is just the thing for a cosy, fireside read on a winter's afternoon * The Herald *
Funny, charming and anecdote-filled memoir * Readers Digest *
