Toby Hadoke: Superfan

It’s the kind of title no one wants to see linked to their name in the press – but comedian and writer Toby Hadoke has been coined "Superfan" by Digital Spy!

Toby Hadoke’s Moths Ate My Doctor Who Scarf one-man show was broadcast on Radio 4 in 2007 (and is available to buy) compared Matt Smith’s casting as a 26-year-old to that of Peter Davison in 1981, when he was just 29.

"I hated Peter Davison when he was cast because he was young," he said."He wasn’t The Doctor I was used to, and because I was going through that adolescent phase of fandom where you actually get your joy out of the programme by being cross with it.

"Fortunately I’m a grown up now, and Peter Davison is one of my favourite Doctors."

It’s a good sign really that the majority of those taken by surprise with Smith’s casting should eventually come around.

 "Matt Smith’s interview showed him to be offbeat, mercurial and possessive of wonderfully expressive fingers. I await his performance with optimism and wish him the very best of luck."

And so say all of us!
