Toby Hadoke 2: Electric Boogaloo

Any fan of Doctor Who worth their salt will know of Toby Hadoke, if not from his one-man show Moths Ate My Doctor Who Scarf, then for his moderation of commentaries for the classic series DVD releases and for his regular column in Doctor Who Magazine.

Comedian, actor and writer Toby HadokeNow he’s getting ready to put on a show again for fans old and new, as his new show My Stepson Stole My Sonic Screwdriver is taking to the Edinburgh Fringe (putting on a show there is something that most stand-up comedians do at least once when they’re starting out) for most of the month of August.

The show apparently

“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”.

His first show was very well received, so this one sounds like it should be well worth a watch!

Before the August Who-a-thon, there are some preview dates around the U.K (the ones without links to ticket sales are not yet confirmed):

28th June Tara Arts, London

1st July The Beacon, Tunbridge Wells

5th July Lantern Theatre, Sheffield

19th July A Laugh Inn, Stockport

20th July The Howard Room, Bedford Fringe

22nd July New Diorama London

23rd July XS Malarkey, Manchester

The main Edinburgh-based show is at the Gilded Balloon Teviot from the 1st-26th of August (except the 15th for some reason) and tickets cost £6-£11 and can be bought here.

Be sure to let us know if it’s any good! We’ll probably end up sending Our Northern Benevolent Overlord to cover it. If we do, you know where we are!
