  • Peter Wyngarde

    Anyone know if the rumours of a Peter Wyngarde biography are true ? And if so, when it is expected to be on sale.

    Always thought it a terrible shame he didn't often appear on our screens after 1980. Would loved to have seen him onstage too. Ahh, that voice.

    Coming this autumn...

    For the first time ever in print, the life story of a television and style icon



    'PETER WYNGARDE: A LIFE AMONGST STRANGERS' Written by his friend, partner and soulmate of 30 years, Tina Wyngarde-Hopkins, this is both a biography and memoir

    Peter Wyngarde: the name elicits memories of an actor with worldwide renown and instantly adhesive star quality. During a more leisurely time, so far from internet gossip as to be barely recognisable, this is a biography that glued two people together for several decades to create a journal of the rise and relaxation of a household name and the adoration they enjoyed.

    The author has not placed their subject on a pedestal to unwittingly create an epic story of fame, fortune, the price of both and the cost of each other. With a wealth of stories to fascinate and appal in equal measure, and given it’s subject’s continuing fascination for a more worldly generation who would barely have heard of the power of the Lord Chamberlain, there is plenty to consume a worldwide readership for the story of someone whose fame hid fragility but whose status was the stuff of legend.


    “Elegantly crafted, intensively researched and presented with the utmost honour, it is highly commended.”


    “A wonderful, fascinating book.” Steven Berkoff
    This book is set to dispel all the newspaper gossip and Internet rumour you've ever read about Peter Wyngarde!

    There is a Twitter page for the book but the actual publication date seems rather nebulous. It's at @tinawyngarde
