"David Lloyd was the perfect TV producer – exuberant, energetic and ebulliently enthusiastic about pretty much everything. This book finds him charmingly in his anecdotage, recalling with vim and vigour all the many twists and turns of an extremely productive life. 'Start the Clock...' charts his transformation from shy schoolboy, beset with eczema, through am. dram. actor, via stage school to his first job as assistant floor manager at the BBC – the start of a long and happy involvement with lights, cameras accompanied by a heck of a lot of action. David was lucky to be at BBC Wales during its golden age of drama, and at HTV when the company made some of its most distinguished programming, much of it made by Lloydy himself. Those of us who worked with him were lucky to share some of those times with him, and this book makes me laugh and smile just as amply as being in the warmth of his company. A fabulous man. A lovely book. And, tellingly, a record of what now feels like a passing age of television." - Jon Gower
