If I’m already working with you on an event, let me know what you need and I’ll write a bio especially for your print and web campaign. But if you just need a quick one or you’ve no intention of ever hiring me yet have a sneaking curiosity about who blathered away at you on the phone, here’s what you want.

It’s a collection of text, images and links that you are of course free to use in any way you need. I would ask that you include a link back to here, And if you use the photo of me, please credit the photographer Andy Pilkington and link to his site at


For the quickest, easiest and very nearly accurate bio, you can always see the Wikipedia page that the very loveliest of Doctor Who fans wrote for me: William Gallagher on Wikipedia

Alternatively, here’s my official bio as at December 2013 (250 words).
