Behind the scenes Edit

A Bear Called Paddington was the first book in the Paddington Bear series of children's books.

The series as a whole has several notable Doctor Who connections. Bernard Cribbins narrated two Paddington music albums released in 1975.

John Standing and Jon Glover have both voiced the character Mr. Brown, in the 1989 animated TV series, and the 1997 animated series The Adventures of Paddington Bear, respectively. Cyril Shaps and Nigel Lambert also leant their voices to the latter series.

Most recently, the live action Paddington film series featured Hugh Bonneville, Hugh Grant, Michael Gambon, Jim Broadbent, Peter Capaldi, Matt Lucas, Matt King, Geoffrey Palmer, Joanna Lumley, Ben Miller, Aaron Neil, Tom Davis, Sanjeev Bhaskar, Maggie Steed, and Meera Syal among its cast.

Mark Benton also appeared alongside the film version of Paddington in a Christmas advert created for British retailer Marks & Spencer in 2017.

Ben Whishaw, who voiced Paddington in the film series, was among the actors tipped to play the Thirteenth Doctor, before Jodie Whittaker's casting. [1]
