With Christmas almost upon us and the latest Doctor Who Christmas Special nearly here, we thought it would be a good time to look back on some of David Tennant's finest moments as the Doctor in his Christmas Specials.

Baby Lifeline Announced As Official Charity Partner For You, Me And Him

Image
Baby Lifeline has today announced that it is the official charity partner for David Tennant's new film, You, Me And Him.

 =Baby Lifeline grew from modest beginnings in Coventry. Former nurse Judy Ledger founded the organisation in 1981, driven by the experience of losing three premature babies, in order to raise funds for a single neonatal incubator for Coventry's Neonatal Unit. Since then the charity has spread and now offers charitable funding to units nationally. Baby Lifeline has raised over £10 million to help purchase specialist equipment and provide training. However it is still a sad fact that 1 in 154 babies are either stillborn or die within 7 days of birth, and 42% of all claims against the NHS are made against maternity departments. Baby Lifeline hopes to reduce these numbers significantly. Judy has told us that the Government is now listening to their concerns, putting money into hospitals and pledging to train 6000 health professionals.
