Who is Toby Hadoke - and what is his show about?

Lee Martin for Gag Reflex Management presents:

Toby Hadoke in Moths Ate My Doctor Who Scarf

A must for anyone that has every had a passion for anything. 

Charting the rise, fall and subsequent rise of a television legend Toby Hadoke presents a personal satirical and razor sharp comic odyssey charting The Doctor's triumphs and disasters, and Hadoke progress from child to man, through obsession, joy and disappointment.

"Utterly hysterical look into the life of someone for whom sci-fi has made the world a better place. Hadoke does an expert job in spreading a bit of the Doctor's joy." **** British Theatre Guide

Part memoir, part tribute, part stand-up, always riotously funny and sometimes surprisingly touching. This award winning comedian's show is a must for anyone who's ever had a passion for anything. An intimate knowledge of Doctor Who is not required, although a disdain for football hooligans and bad TV is!

"Like the new generation of Doctor Who, Hadoke's show has the capacity to wrong-foot you with its emotional kick" - The Times

A sell-out success at Edinburgh 2006 and 2007 (the latter generating 100% five star reviews), the show has spawned a BBC radio adaptation (itself nominated for a Sony Award), proving that Hadoke's comedy doesn't just appeal to geeks - there are appropriately universal joys and observations in this intelligent and moving piece.

"This heartfelt rites of passage memoir does for Daleks and Cybermen what fever pitch did for football" The Guardian
