LATEST UPDATES (as of February 2016):

Right you lot, I am not a natural Adonis but I have been hitting the gym and eating Ryvita in order to get into shape for the Manchester 10k run in May. I would like to raise a lot of money for The Psoriasis Association so please sponsor me here.

My Radio 4 play, The Dad Who Fell To Earth, was nominated for Best Scripted Comedy Drama and the BBC Audio Drama Awards. It made the long list of six and then the short list of the final three. It lost out to the excellent In And Out Of The Kitchen but seeing as Cabin Pressure was the other runner up it’s not bad company to have been in.

Lots of obituaries have been necessary lately alas. A sad duty but one I am honoured to have been asked to perform by The Guardian for Robert Banks Stewart, Don Leaver and Anthony Valentine and by the The Herald for Kenneth Gilbert and Robert Banks Stewart

We’ve started work on a short film I have written called Fuzzy.

I have recorded some commentaries for Fantom Films for the recently recovered Doctor Who stories The Enemy Of the World and The Web Of Fear as they sadly didn’t get any on the official BBC DVDs. They are available here.

OLD NEWS BUT STILL PERTINENT – I set myself an enormous task in 2013 – to interview someone from every single televised Doctor Who story. These are being broadcast as a series of podcasts, found here. I outline my plan here. Updates are here.

  1. Hi Toby,

    I really enjoyed your radio 4 play (say that phrase rather quickly for instant hilarity…). Impressive juggling act between daft jokes and real emotion – with a soupcon of who-isms for the cognoscenti. Cheers!

  2. Adored your play “The Man Who Fell to Earth”. It became quite sad towards the end – for those of us who have lost our parents will know. All in all, great stuff indeed.
