Dr K has a very particular look, and has at various times been said to resemble Richard Nixon and Michael Gove.

Not to be confused with the Mark Kermode who is the President of the ATP Tour or the Mark Kermode who is the President of the Manx Nationalist Party.

It has recently come to light that one of Dr K's absolutely favourite things is to take a very hot bath whilst reading Private Eye and drinking an ice cold Asahi beer (other hop based, brewed beverages are available).
