Hadoke stages Who double bill

Published July 16, 2013

Comedian Toby Hadoke will have Weeping Angels crying with laughter and Slitheen splitting their sides when he stages his two Doctor Who themed solo comedy shows as a double bill at the Garrick theatre on 17 November.

The award-winning comedian will bring Moths Ate My Doctor Who Scarf and My Stepson Stole My Sonic Screwdriver to the London stage for one night only in celebration of the long-running science fiction TV show’s 50th anniversary.

Both shows blend personal tales with a fan’s obsession, Moths Ate My Doctor Who Scarf focusing on the rise, fall and rise again of a television behemoth, while My Stepson Stole My Sonic Screwdriver follows a journey that starts with the loss of a partner, ends with gaining a stepson and pays tribute to the healing power of television’s favourite Gallifreyan.

Hadoke’s double bill will entertain audiences at arguably one of London’s busiest theatres. During the week, the Garrick hosts big-haired rock musical Rock Of Ages, which will be joined from August by the return of family hit Horrible Histories – Barmy Britain Part I. The first part of the deliciously gruesome tale of days gone by will be replaced in September by Barmy Britain Part II.
