Career Buxton's first television appearance was in an episode of Channel 4's Takeover TV as a man called "Louise" dressed as a Klingon, complaining about Star Trek: The Next Generation being taken off the air. In 2005 he moved from screen to stage, performing character-driven comedy at the 2005 Edinburgh Festival, with a show entitled "I, Pavel", for which he grew a large beard.
Expanded extracts from the Xfm radio shows have been released as podcasts, which were placed in the UK's top 10 most downloaded. In November 2007, Buxton recorded the video for "Jigsaw Falling into Place" for British band Radiohead, which was the first single from their album In Rainbows. He has released a number of popular videos on YouTube, and was commissioned to produce a pilot programme for the BBC based around work of this kind. He is also the narrator of some of the titles available on the Ladybird Classic Me Books iPad app, including Goldilocks and the Three Bears and Three Little Pigs. Guests have included Louis Theroux, Jon Ronson, Caitlin Moran, Michael Palin and Joe Cornish.
