This is a heartwarming yet hilarious personal retrospective of a life of Doctor Who fandom. I'm not sure that anyone who isn't a) British or b) like the author, a Doctor Who fan from childhood, would really be able to relate to it on the same visceral level that I can.

"I was vaguely aware that comedian Toby Hadoke has a one-man stage show about being a Doctor Who fan, and got hold of the CD in the expectation of some wry nostalgic giggles but not much more.[return][return]I got a great deal more.

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.

This was cute! Though, considering it is from a comedian, I expected it to be funnier. Ah well. But I did like the production of it - multiple cast members to do different voices, sound effects, even getting Colin Baker to do some work on it.

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.
