I am a regular presenter on The 7th Dimension, BBC Radio 4 Extra’s science-fiction hour between 6-7pm and midnight-1am every Saturday and Sunday. I do three week stints every couple of months. I also regularly see out the year on the show, presenting a round up of the notable losses to the world of science fiction and fantasy in my annual obituary slot.
It’s a great hour of archive gems including everything from Journey Into Space to Fear On Four and – you guessed it – Doctor Who.
I have also been lucky enough to get whole three hours on BBC Radio 4 Extra’s Archive Hour presenting The Golden Age of American Radio. It got great write ups in many publications including the Radio Times (see below), the Telegraph and the Spectator.
“The whole thing is presented with spark by Toby Hadoke – try it, it’s fun” – Gillian Reynolds, Telegraph
“Presenter Toby Hadoke does a super job” – Simon O’Hagan, Radio Times (Pick of the Week)
Other radio presenting includes Michelle Around Midnight (BBC GMR) and The Allan Beswick Show (BBC GMT – guest co-host holiday relief). I have also banged on alongside Anita Anand, Richard Bacon, Stephen Nolan, Phil Williams and Edwina Currie on their Five Live shows which has involved verbal sparrings with various loons like Christian Voice and Tory MP Philip Davies. I have been a guest on almost every regional radio station in the land, including providing light relief during GMR’s live election coverage. I have also, I hope, provided some levity on Justin Moorhouse’s Key 103 show, for Smug Roberts on Revolution, Terry Christian on GMR, Serious About Comedy (BBC 7), Sunday (Radio 4) and The Fred MacAulay Show on BBC Radio Scotland.
I also did a snippet of Moths Ate My Doctor Who Scarf on Radio 4’s Loose Ends alongside the legendary Bernard Cribbins, and have been a guest contributor to Radio 4’s The Last Word.
