Toby Hadoke Nominated

Toby Hadoke’s one man show Moths Ate My Doctor Who Scarf was last year recorded as a radio serial, and the BBC Audiobook recording of it has been nominated for a prestigious Sony Radio Academy Award, reports the Official BBC Doctor Who site.

An autobiographical walk through time, Moths Ate My Doctor Who Scarfmarried the timeline of Doctor Who history with observational comedy and excerpts from Toby’s teenage diaries.

Who keeps a diary?

Apparently the diaries include how Toby coped with being bullied, explain why he never got the girl (there was only one at his school) as well as detailing how being such a fan helped to actually get the girl!

Toby commented on the nomination: "It’s been quite a fortnight for me – I made my West End debut with the stage show and on the opening night an old friend of mine sent me a message saying that the radio version of Moths was up for a Sony. Something that never even entered my radar."

Toby added: "It’s especially pleasing that producer Paul Hardy and BBC 7 will get some much deserved kudos from The Sonys, because without their unfailing enthusiasm and hard work on the project, I wouldn’t be in this happy position."

The CD is still available to purchase in shops or online, while Toby is currently touring the the UK until June – you can find more on that at Quintessential Comedy.
