Robbie Coltrane and David Bradley Doodle for Charity
Posted by Megs

Actors Robbie Coltrane (Hagrid) and David Bradley (Filch) have sketched original drawings for a charity eBay auction. The auction will begin on eBay on National Doodle Day – September 17th.

Since National Doodle Day began in 2004, doodlers far and wide have raised over £180,000 for Epilepsy Action, all to improve the lives of people with epilepsy.

Each year Epilepsy Action supports over 2 million people through a range of services,
including the Epilepsy Action Helpline freephone 0808 800 5050, branch network, events
and website.

  • £18 – pays for a helpline adviser to reassure someone coming to terms with a diagnosis
  • £48 – can help give a new local support group the resources to be there for more people
  • £100 – means 47 children can learn about epilepsy and stay safer
  • £450 – can give a specialist volunteer the skills and resources to train staff in schools, care homes and workplaces

David Bradley to Star in Doctor Who Anniversary Special
Posted by Megs

David Bradley, better known to Potter fans as Argus Filch, will be playing a Time Lord in a 90-minute BBC Drama special in honor of Doctor Who’s 50th Anniversary.  The special is entitled An Adventure in Space and Time, and David will be portraying William Hartnell (a previous Doctor Who actor) in the story.  Doctor Who first aired on November 23rd 1963, so this special will tell the story of the genesis of Doctor Who and the personalities involved.

David had the following to say about the roll: “I’m absolutely thrilled. I first heard about this role from Mark Gatiss while watching the Diamond Jubilee flotilla from the roof of the National Theatre. When he asked if I would interested, I almost bit his hand off! […] Mark has written such a wonderful script not only about the birth of a cultural phenomenon, but a moment in television’s history. William Hartnell was one of the finest character actors of our time and as a fan I want to make sure that I do him justice. I’m so looking forward to getting started.”

The writer, Mark Gatiss, said: “What a cast! I’m utterly delighted that everyone’s favourite Time Lord will be in such brilliant and stellar company. We have a terrific team who can’t wait to tell the fascinating and surprising story of how the Doctor began his journey through space and time.”
