Series XI

Barker's first appearance was as Shaft 14 in the Series XI episode "Give & Take", but arguably his largest role came in "Krysis" where his voice was given the to The Universe itself, albeit while doing a Morgan Freeman impersonation. He also impersonated David Attenborough for the season finale "Can of Worms", as well as playing the Croquet Announcer in "Officer Rimmer".

Series XII

In the Series XII episode "Mechocracy", Barker appears as Dispenser 402 and other A.I. voices.
