Publisher's Summary

Sir Tony Robinson is a much-loved actor, presenter and author with a stellar career lasting over 50 years. Now, in his long-awaited autobiography, he reveals how the boy from South Woodford went from child stardom in the first stage production of Oliver!, a pint-size pickpocket desperately bleaching his incipient moustache, to comedy icon Baldrick, the loyal servant and turnip aficionado in Blackadder.
It wasn't all plain sailing, though. Along the way he was bullied by Steve Marriott, failed to impress Liza Minnelli and was pushed into a stinking London dock by John Wayne. He also entertained us with Maid Marion and Her Merry Men (which he wrote and starred in) and coped manfully when locked naked outside a theatre in Lincoln during the live tour of comedy series Who Dares Wins. He presented Time Team for 20 years, watching countless gardens ruthlessly dug up in the name of archaeology, and risked life and limb filming The Worst Jobs in History.
Packed full of incident and insight, No Cunning Plan is a funny, self-deprecating and always entertaining listen.

A great listen by a talented story-teller

I enjoyed this highly entertaining autobiography full variety and comical incidents. The author, though famous for his loveable character Baldrick in the Blackadder series, is obviously a multi-talented man, who, by his own admission lacked formal education, but can turn his hand to writing stories for children, create historical documentaries and be a knowledgeable presenter of archeology programmes. He doesn’t flinch from describing his failures and weaknesses and is modest over his successes. He comes over as a devoted father, a loving husband of three wives and a dedicated political activist.

Reading his own words greatly enhanced this audio book.

Fairly honest and quite funny

I feel I know Tony quite well now. His openness in sharing his success, let downs and blunders are so human, refreshing and entertaining. Thoroughly enjoyable.
