Moths Ate My Dr Who Scarf

According to Toby Hadoke, hetrosexual Dr Who fans are about as common as a shop selling ginger hair dye. In his show, Toby climbs out of his Dr Who closet to tell you about his life, loves and obsession with the BBC cult sci-fi series.

Hadoke's comedy is observational, and although he claims you don't have to be a fan to appreciate it, it really does help. Those of us who can empathise with the geek within us will follow Toby's tale an awful lot easier.

Hadoke's style is similar in many ways to Dave Gorman. He'll often go off on a full volume rant to point out the various injustices in his life, and he's angry about the lack of educational and moral value in contemporary television - citing examples where Dr Who expanded his knowledge and taught him to be a good citizen.

All in all, this is a very funny nostalgic look at a slice of British television history, and how it effected one mans life. May the geeks inherit the earth...

Since you’re here…

… we have a small favour to ask. We don't want your money to support a hack's bar bill at Abattoir, but if you have a pound or two spare, we really encourage you to support a good cause. If this review has either helped you discover a gem or avoid a turkey, consider doing some good that will really make a difference.

You can donate to the charity of your choice, but if you're looking for inspiration, there are three charities we really like.

Mama Biashara
Kate Copstick’s charity, Mama Biashara, works with the poorest and most marginalised people in Kenya. They give grants to set up small, sustainable businesses that bring financial independence and security. That five quid you spend on a large glass of House White? They can save someone’s life with that. And the money for a pair of Air Jordans? Will take four women and their fifteen children away from a man who is raping them and into a new life with a moneymaking business for Mum and happiness for the kids.

Theatre MAD
The Make A Difference Trust fights HIV & AIDS one stage at a time. Their UK and International grant-making strategy is based on five criteria that raise awareness, educate, and provide care and support for the most vulnerable in society. A host of fundraising events, including Bucket Collections, Late Night Cabarets, West End Eurovision, West End Bares and A West End Christmas continue to raise funds for projects both in the UK and Sub-Saharan Africa.
