BENEATH his air of distraction and flowing scarf, Tom Baker's Dr Who always seemed like he might have a dark side. Now Baker, whose memoirs Who on Earth Is Tom Baker? revealed his own racy past, has written a book with a strong vein of very black humour.

The Boy Who Kicked Pigs, published by Faber in the autumn, concerns an evil little boy who idolises Saddam Hussein and has a peculiar fetish for kicking pigs and orchestrating fatal accidents for those he dislikes. Ultimately, little Robert Caligari himself meets a gruesome end when he encounters a pack of killer rats.
