Toby Hadoke

Toby Hadoke is an actor, writer and stand-up comedian. He is the resident MC at the multi award winning XS Malarkey, and hosts regular nights at the 99 Club Leicester Square and the Manchester Comedy Store.

His one man show Moths Ate My Doctor Who Scarf won plaudits at the Edinburgh Fringe, toured the UK and internationally and spawned a Sony Nominated radio series. It was last performed with its equally acclaimed sequel, My Stepson Stole My Sonic Screwdriver, at the Garrick Theatre in London's West End where both were recorded for DVD.

His television appearances include Phoenix Nights, The Forsyte Saga, Holby City, Casualty 1907, and many more, whilst on stage he has worked at the Royal Exchange Theatre, Manchester, the Duke's Theatre, Lancaster, and the Ludlow Festival.

He is a prolific voice artist and radio actor, and has written plays for Radio 4 - the latest of these, The Dad Who Fell To Earth, was a finalist for Best Comedy in the BBC Audio Drama Awards. He has moderated commentaries for many of the Doctor Who DVD range as well as for certain BFI releases, and has written for The Guardian, The Independent, Doctor Who Magazine and SFX.

The second volume of the book series Running Through Corridors, a chronological celebration of Doctor Who co-written with Robert Shearman, was out in December 2016.

His Who's Round podcast (for which he has interviewed hundreds of people who have worked on Doctor Who including Russell T Davies, Waris Hussein and nearly all of the Voord) will probably only end when he dies.
