Toby Hadoke Chats

Funny man Toby Hadoke chatted to free paper Metro recently about his Doctor Who themed show Moths Ate My Doctor Who Scarf, and how it has developed over time…

Hadoke talks about how the story has been compared to Nick Hornby’s Fever Pitch, as well as taking the showe to the US, and a possible TV version.

It has been compared to that [Fever Pitch]. The important thing was for it to be funny, but also entertain people who’d never seen Doctor Who. It was a sleeper hit in 2006, so we took it back last year, then this West End producer asked would I be interested in doing a major tour.

I have had someone from a production company ask about the TV rights. We did a radio version for BBC 7, which is now available on CD. It’s dramatised, and I got one of the doctors, Colin Baker, and Louise Jameson, who played his assistant, to appear in it. That was the best day of my life. I got him to heckle me.

A TV version would be excellent, I reckon. As long as it is faithful, it could be quite an eye opener for a lot of people out there who still see Doctor Who fans – especially we adult ones – as a bit odd.

Alternatively, I’ve got a list for when the revolution comes, so it’s horses for courses.
