Robert is a comedian, actor, presenter and writer. He’s perhaps best known for his role as Kryten in hit BBC comedy Red Dwarf and as co-presenter of Channel 4’s Scrapheap Challenge, but has more recently forged a strong position for himself as an automotive journalist.

Robert started writing and producing videos about cars almost by accident after creating the Carpool series, in which he interviews celebrities and other guests while giving them a lift in an eco-friendly car – usually a Toyota Prius. Robert quickly gained support from Toyota and was offered countless drives in all kinds of vehicles, from the pure electric Tesla Roadster sports car to the Honda FCX Clarity hydrogen fuel cell car, reporting on each via his popular blog. As a result Robert has become an expert on green cars – in particular electric cars, launching EV web series Fully Charged in 2010.

  • Llewellyn Plugs In: Pedal Power

    Last week I went for a delightful cycle ride in the rolling hills of South Gloucestershire. I was rapidly transported back to my childhood when I took part in forced bike rides with my family, oh the joy.
