Ah, the trials of fandom ...,
This review is from: Moths Ate My Doctor Who Scarf: The BBC Adaptation of the One Man Show (Audio CD)
It's a good thing that both Toby Hadoke and I are Doctor Who fans, because I might never have heard of him otherwise. Toby's one man show (done with assistance in this case by Colin Baker and Louise Jameson, among others) is brilliant; by turns laugh-out-loud funny and bittersweet, and seems strangely familiar. Oh, that's right, I'm an aging Doctor Who fan myself! This isn't all Toby has done, of course, and I highly recommend a Google search to see what else he gets up to.
If, however, you have ever been a fan of anything, particularly a fan of Doctor Who, and have faced the developing paradoxes that inevitably occur in a world that frowns on imagination and escapism, then you owe it to yourself to either buy this CD, or else download it LEGALLY. Toby is brilliant, and shouldn't be cheated out of his royalties by people who just want free stuff.
Either way, you'll find yourself feeling amused, entertained, and quite possibly nostalgic. Thanks, Toby, and keep up the stellar work!

I feel compelled to add that I now worry about my own scarf, which is sitting in storage while I am deployed overseas.

I had the luck to see Toby's one-man show at the Gallifreyone convention in LA this year. Hilarious! Some of what he talks about really hits home. Almost uncomfortably on-target. Highly recommended.
