RSC Appeal Update

Image
The RSC have sent an update on their Transform Our Theatres Appeal, which we have been helping to contribute to with our Seat For David Campaign.

They say:
£5.5m left to raise to reach Campaign goal of £112.8m
The fundraising campaign to Transform our Theatres steps up in its final year. Having received three significant gifts totaling £3.6m as well as further funds through our ongoing successful Public Appeal, the RSC has raised a total of £107.3m. With one year to go before the Campaign will close, we must push on with our fundraising and appeal to more people to help us raise the final £5.5m. With the help of some RSC Alumni we have created a trailer We're Coming Home to highlight the urgency and invite people to play their part in reaching our final goal.
Watch the new trailer here.

Headway Essex Update

Image
We know that there is a lot of interest from overseas fans in purchasing the fantastic merchandise that David has designed for Headway Essex.
Headway Essex would like to let all David’s fans know how much they value their support. However, selling their wonderful new merchandise overseas is not as straightforward as some may think. There is a lot of work going on behind the scenes at Headway Essex to resolve this, and they will find a solution to the complexities of Customs & Excise & VAT regulations, and will be setting up an appropriate and secure payment system and related terms & conditions in due course. Many large UK charities DO NOT sell merchandise overseas, but even though Headway Essex are a small charity they are working hard not to disappoint David’s fans who live overseas. Thank you for your patience with this and we will let you know as soon as there is any further news. :)

In the meantime fans from the UK can place orders here.

The new issue of the Radio Times has an interview with the Prime Minister Gordon Brown in which he admits that he thinks that David is the best actor to portray the role of the Doctor in Doctor Who:
John Pertwee, Tom Baker, David Tennant or Matt Smith?
“I think you know what I’m going to say here. Yes. David Tennant is the best.”

He also goes on to show a preference for Hamlet because of David's version of the part:
Hamlet, Macbeth, A Midsummer Night’s Dream, Romeo and Juliet?
“Hamlet [with David Tennant]. I saw it recently.”
