ED2012 Comedy Review: My Stepson Stole My Sonic Screwdriver (Toby Hadoke – Festival Highlights)

ED2012 4/5 Reviews ED2012 Comedy Reviews

The Master of everything ‘Doctor Who’, Toby Hadoke, presents the eagerly anticipated sequel to ‘Moths Ate My Doctor Who Scarf’, putting ‘number one’ fans to shame. Hadoke’s descriptions of episode plots are quicker than the speed of light. If you think that you’re a fan of the Doctor now; you’ll leave the show thinking, “No…I just watch television”. This entertaining spectacle is not just for budding ‘whovians’, however; I personally have never seen a single episode but found Hadoke to be quick witted, gloriously self-deprecating and a captivating storyteller, especially in touching on his relationship with his deaf stepson. Even if you’ve never heard of a Dalek, the Doctor or David Tennant, this show will entertain.
