Tennant in Africa

During this time of year, when the BBC broadcasts its regular charity event Comic Relief, there’s no end of celebrities and well known names that want to get involved with the project and do their bit to raise some money.

Previous TARDIS owner David Tennant is no different as he recently went to Africa as part of events in order raise awareness of how money raised during the charity event is spent over there.

Comic relief uses the money raised on its event nigh to help fight the illnesses that are rife among the population and Tennant has kept a diary of his time over there, to be published in the Radio Times, to tell readers exactly what he saw and the people that he met.

In one section he writes:

“Comic Relief asked me to travel to Uganda to see how the money you raise is used where it is needed most… I feel woefully under-qualified and ill-equipped, but I figure I can’t keep reading out the phone number and telling everyone how necessary it is without seeing it up close.”

Tennant has always been one to “muck in” during these kinds of events and his good nature and generous spirit will clearly be seen when clips of his experiences in the country are seen. It’s always nice to see a celebrity give something back!

Various events are taking place over the next nine days for Red Nose Day but the main televised night will take place on Friday 18th March from 7.00pm on BBC One and BBC Two.


What happens when an eight year old kid watches the 1993 repeat run of Planet of the Daleks? He pretty much ends up here writing about the show that grabbed hold of him and never let go!
