Christopher Douglas performs and co-writes the award winning ED REARDON’S WEEK for Radio 4 which recently completed its eighth series. He is also the voice and co-creator of the world’s most disappointing cricketer Dave Podmore. ‘Pod’ has been a Radio 4 regular since 2001 and was a Guardian columnist for ten years. Christopher writes and directs the improbably long-running career of uber-thesp NICHOLAS CRAIG (played by Nigel Planer) on BBC TV and Radio 4.
His stage work includes SCOUT’S HONOUR (Standard Best Comedy nomination), THEATRICAL DIGS, AN EVENING WITH NICHOLAS CRAIG and ED REARDON: A WRITER’S BURDEN.
He has written for the Times, Guardian, Independent, Wisden and many other publications and among his books are I, AN ACTOR, DOUGLAS JARDINE – SPARTAN CRICKETER and THE WORD OF POD.
Other radio credits include two plays – THE ENGLISHMAN ABROAD and DOLLY, two series of MASTERING THE UNIVERSE starring Dawn French and three series of BEAUTY OF BRITAIN starring Jocelyn Jee Esien.
