Television star, David Tennant, has taken time out of filming the new series of Dr Who to record a charity appeal on behalf of Headway.

Following his moving portrayal of a man who suffered a brain injury in the BBC television programme, Recovery, David kindly agreed to narrate the appeal for Headway.

The appeal tells the story of Robert, a young man who was involved in a road traffic accident at just 17-years old. He suffered serious head injuries and was in a coma for three weeks. Prior to the accident, Robert was on the verge of taking his place at Oxford University and had a scholarship to become a pilot in the RAF. The accident changed all that. Like many other brain injury survivors, Robert and his family found support with a local Headway group where he was able to learn to live again and regain his independence with the support of a carer.

The Headway appeal took place on BBC Radio 4 on Sunday 23 December 2007 and was repeated on Thursday 27 December.

You can donate online via the Radio 4 website or by calling 0800 404 8144. Or you can write a cheque to Headway and send it to FREEPOST BBC Radio 4 Appeal, marking the back of your envelope Headway.

You can also help by spreading the word about the appeal to friends, family and work colleagues.

This is a little late, but I just found this. It's at the Headway website.

Don't you think this is a very nice picture of David?
