Friday 11th February saw the launch of National Doodle Day 2011, the eighth event organised by the charities Epilepsy Action and The Neurofibromatosis Association. As with last year, a number of doodles from stars associated with Doctor Who join others to help raise money to help those afflicted by those illnesses.
This year two Doctors have submitted illustrations, Peter Davison and Christopher Eccleston, with companion entries from Bernard Cribbins and Freema Agyeman. Other guest stars from the show include Matt Baker, Jeremy Bulloch, Brian Cant, Martin Clunes, Graham Cole, Michael Gambon, Sarah Greene, Felicity Kendal, Harry Lloyd, Geoffrey Palmer, Nigel Planer, Paul O'Grady, Russell Tovey, Zoe Wannamaker, and Don Warrington. It is also possible to vote for your favourite celebrity doodle.
Doodles from previous years can be purchased on t-shirts and other items in support of the charities from PhotoBox; last year included items from Catherine Tate and Elisabeth Sladen, with previous years including Colin Baker and Louise Jameson.
The auction is currently running on Ebay, and a full list of the celebrity doodles are available on the National Doodle Day website.
