Peter Capaldi has signed and donated one of his last Doctor Who scripts to an online charity auction.

The signed and personalised script for the series 10 finale, The Doctor Falls, will be auctioned off at the first virtual version of the annual Capital Si-Fi Con.

The event will take place on Saturday March 13 in aid of Children’s Hospices Across Scotland (CHAS).

Mr Capaldi, the 12th incarnation of the Doctor, said: “I am delighted to donate this personalised shooting script for The Doctor Falls by Steven Moffat to be auctioned for CHAS at Capital Sci Fi Con.

“Reading the full script gives an insight into Steven’s beautiful work and this truly is an amazing collector’s item for Doctor Who fans.

Mr Capaldi attended the 2019 convention in Edinburgh’s Corn Exchange, and last year he donated the script for Heaven Sent – with an added illustration making it a one-off – which raised £4,460 for the charity.

Other items to be auctioned include a dressing gown worn by Emma Thompson in Men in Black 2, and a personalised video from Sabrina the Teenage Witch actress Melissa Joan Hart.

Fiona Leslie, senior community fundraiser at CHAS, said: “We are absolutely delighted and privileged that Peter is once again supporting CHAS through Capital Sci-Fi Con which is now in its sixth year.

“Since 2016 the Con’s organiser Keith Armour and his team have raised a phenomenal £312,000 for CHAS and we are indebted to them for their determination in ensuring this year’s event could still go ahead virtually after it became clear a physical event wasn’t going to be possible because of the pandemic.

“With Keith’s vision and support from stars like Peter we hope sci-fi fans from across the world will join in the fun online to raise funds to help children with life-shortening conditions and their families across Scotland.

“Stay tuned to the Capital Sci-Fi Con website for the auction link going live in early March plus further updates.”

Tickets for the Virtual Capital Sci-Fi Con 2021 cost £3 and are available now.
