Join in the Dr Who 50th Anniversary celebrations with Toby Hadoke’s long-awaited sequel to his Sony Gold Award nominated Moths Ate My Doctor Who Scarf.
Intimate knowledge of the TARDIS is not required to enjoy this bittersweet comedy of parenting through sci-fi evangelism: Hadoke's compelling and incisive shows are universal in appeal. This Chortle Awards 2012 nominee has an acid tongue and a warm heart.
Join Toby as he takes you on a heart-warming journey that begins with losing a partner, ends with gaining a stepson and pays homage to the restorative powers of the Time Lord in between.
‘Like the new generation of Doctor Who, Hadoke’s show has the capacity to wrong-foot you with its emotional kick.’ The Times
‘Laugh-out-loud lines and spot-on ad-libs... you’ll want to applaud his virtuosic performance.’ **** Exeunt

|Tales from the Shadows
Beyond Eternity Promotions
Edgar Allan Poe is the undisputed master of gothic horror. His dark tales have for successive generations thrilled, excited and terrified. His macabre imagination explores the darkest, deepest recesses of the human mind and the furthest reaches of the paranormal. Claustrophobic nightmares of murder, madness and torture are his signature and with these retellings by master raconteur Andrew Meller (An Audience with Sherlock Holmes; Talbot House and An Evening with the humour of Bob Newhart & Tom Lehrer) you will be left transfixed and petrified.
Terror fills the auditorium when Andrew brings to life, in his own, inimitable style, Poe’s greatest characters and most menacing scenes. Audiences leave his performances paranoid, looking over their shoulders for unseen predators. His words haunt their dreams for nights after.
Most definitely not for the faint hearted or weak minded, this is a show for those who revel in being scared!
PLEASE NOTE: THIS SHOW IS NOT SUITABLE FOR ANYONE UNDER THE AGE OF 14
SPECIAL CHRISTMAS MATINEES AT 2:30PM ON SAT 14 DEC, SUN 15 DEC & SAT 21 DEC
