Barnaby graduated from the Guildford School of Acting in 1992 and has worked extensively in theatre, radio, television and films ever since. 

“I’ve no idea whether Barnaby Edwards’s mellifluous and unashamedly emotional voice is anything like Thomas’s… but for the first time I found myself sympathising with the man, complexes, confusions, chips, warts and all.”
— Sue Arnold in The Guardian (Edward Thomas - Audiobook of the Month)
