Tennant plays good Doctor for charity

DR WHO'S Scottish star David Tennant has donated the script from his first appearance as the timelord to an Edinburgh charity event.

Tennant, 35, who grew up in Paisley, has given a signed copy of his script from the Christmas special to Hatwalk 2006, which starts on May 31.

The charity is aimed at raising funds for educational work and support for vulnerable children in Scotland by showcasing hats and selling items at auction.

The catwalk shows will take place over two days at the Mansfield Traquair Centre in the city.

They will feature creations by students and also milliners who have worked on films such as the soon to be released Da Vinci Code and the Harry Potter series.

It is the second time Tennant has given a signed script to charity in the Capital.

Last month the actor donated his script from the first episode of the current Dr Who TV series to the annual Christian Aid book sale at Edinburgh's St Andrew's and St George's Church.
