I presented three hours of archive radio gems in The Golden Age of American Drama on BBC Radio 4 Extra on Saturday 23rd September. It was Pick of the Week in the Radio Times and got great reviews in the Telegraph and the Spectator. It’s on iPlayer here until October 22nd.

I will be performing at Take Back – Resistance, more script in hand political theatre, in Manchester on October 2nd.

I am writing another Radio 4 play – a scary one this time. Details of this very exciting project will be forthcoming once a couple of important t crossings and i dottings have been done.

Volume Two of Running Through Corridors ia out now and available from Mad Norwegian Press or Amazon (or in the shops), whilst Dead Funny: Encore (a volume of short horror stories by comedians which features a piece by me nestling amongst works by more estimable types like Stewart Lee, James Acaster, Robin Ince and Rufus Hound) is out now.

  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.

  3. Hi Toby enjoying reading “running through corridors two” greatly ( when does vol 3 come out ? I hope the what between volumes isnt too long this time) but on page 119 you say Robert Holmes made up the word “Tellurian”. Sorry he didn’t make it up, it’s rooted in latin, meaning “things of or pertaining to the earth”
    One of the things I still love about Dr Who is it often sends me scurrying for the dictionary, though Robert Holmes does that more than most writers. He sent me to look “Tellurian” up when I watched the repeat in the five faces of Dr Who back in 81.
    When does the dvds of “moths” etc come out ?

    Best Wishes

    1. Ah, I sit corrected. Nice nugget of info, thanks. And thanks for reading.

      Not sure re: DVDs and Volume Three. Hopefully there latter won’t be as long: I prodded Rob the other day. Watch this space…
