A fantastic adaptation for radio of Toby Hadoke's one-man comedy show "Moths Ate My Doctor Who Scarf". Both funny and touching. Required listening for Doctor Who fans, or anyone who wants to understand why Doctor Who fans are so passionate about the show.
Paul Doody
Toby Hadoke is a comedian who puts his love of Doctor Who into his stage show. This is the recorded version, featuring Doctor Who star Louise Jameson. Excellent and very funny.
