HadokesonicActor, writer, and comedian Toby Hadoke has penned a sequel to his acclaimed show Moths Ate My Doctor Who Scarf.

My Stepson Stole My Sonic Screwdriver is to tour on preview before being taken to the Edinburgh Fringe.

Teasing the new show, Hadoke, who also acts as a moderator on classic Doctor Who DVD releases and is a contributor to the Doctor Who Magazine column A Battle of Wits, said: "It mentions Vernon Dobtcheff, Meglos, genocide, and Fear Her - and it is nice about two of them."
Inspired by an obsession with Doctor Who and picking up where Moths Stole My Doctor Who Scarf left off, Chortle Award nominee Toby Hadoke's highly anticipated second show is compelling, incisive, and universal in appeal. Join him as he takes you on a heart-warming journey that begins with losing a partner, ends with gaining a stepson, and pays homage to the restorative powers of the Time Lord in between. Intimate knowledge of the TARDIS is not required to enjoy this bitter-sweet comedy of parenting through sci-fi evangelism.
Directed by Mark Attwood, it will be previewing as follows:
  • Sunday 1st July: The Beacon, Tunbridge Wells (NB: Free entry to ticket-holders of Friday 29th June performance of Moths Ate My Doctor Who Scarf)
  • Friday 20th July: Bedford Fringe, The Howard Room, Bedford Corn Exchange
  • (to be confirmed) Sunday 22nd July: New Diorama Theatre, Triton Street, Regent's Place, London
  • (to be confirmed) Monday 23rd July: XS Malarkey, Fallowfield, Manchester
The 60-minute production will then transfer to the Edinburgh Fringe, where Hadoke will be performing it at The Gilded Balloon Teviot every afternoon from Wednesday 1st August to Sunday 26th August, except for Wednesday 15th.
