In celebration of Doctor Who’s 50th anniversary, acclaimed comedian, Sony Gold nominee and Who's Round mastermind Toby Hadoke is performing both of his Who-themed solo shows, Moths Ate My Doctor Who Scarf and My Stepson Stole My Sonic Screwdriver, in a West End double bill for one night only on Sunday, 17 November 2013 at 7pm.
No super fan’s 50th anniversary celebration will be complete without this unique opportunity to see both Moths Ate My Doctor Who Scarf and My Stepson Stole My Sonic Screwdriver, presented together for the first, and quite possibly also the last, time.
Moths Ate My Doctor Who Scarf
Get out from behind that sofa and get aboard Toby Hadoke’s TARDIS on a trip through time – charting the rise, fall and rise again of a television legend. This delightful show is a personal, satirical and razor sharp comic odyssey from child to man, through obsession, joy and disappointment.
‘Like the new generation of Doctor Who, Hadoke’s show has the capacity to wrong-foot you with its emotional kick.’ – The Times on Moths
My Stepson Stole My Sonic Screwdriver
Join Toby as he takes you on a heart-warming journey that begins with losing a partner, ends with gaining a stepson and pays homage to the restorative powers of the Time Lord in between. Intimate knowledge of the TARDIS is not required to enjoy these bittersweet comedies of parenting through sci-fi evangelism: Hadoke's compelling and incisive shows are universal in appeal.
‘This heartfelt rites of passage memoir does for Daleks and Cybermen what Fever Pitch did for football. Hadoke’s superior stand-up skills mean that everyone can enjoy the ride.’ – The Guardian on Stepson

It's ten years since Nick Briggs became co-executive producer of Big Finish Productions. His friends and colleagues celebrate this fact in a not entirely serious tribute.
