Doctor answers charity's call

DR Who star Christopher Eccleston is to become an ambassador for learning disability charity Mencap.

Eccleston, 41, pictured, researched the issue for his 1991 film role as Derek Bentley, who was hanged in 1953 for the murder of a policeman.

Bentley, who is said to have suffered from a learning disability, was later pardoned.
