LATEST UPDATES (March 2017):

I have been commissioned to write another play for Radio 4. It won’t be on until September though (I have to write it first!) but the provisional title is Grand Designs of the Third Kind. Thrilled to be embarking on another one – which will again be produced by Charlotte Riches for the Afternoon Play slot.

I am touring in John Godber’s April in Paris with Little Diamond Theatre Company: we’re going to Halifax, Blackburn, Oldham and Rhyl. Promo here. Venue at date details here. There’s a nice write-up for it here.

I will be in episode 3 of the new Radio 2 Barbara Nice series which has just started: it’s great fun and stars the brilliant Janice Connolly alongside top talent like John Henshaw, Sally Lindsay, Brigit Forsyth and, um, me. Ann Veronica, which I recorded for Radio 4 (with Bill Nighy and Geoffrey Whitehead), will be on iPlayer until the end of March : here.

I have done an In Memoriam video commemorating contributors to the Doctor Who universe who died in 2016. Watch it here.

My Guardian obituary for director Philip Saville be found here.

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.
