AN ORIGINAL signed script from the cult BBC sci-fi show Doctor Who is to be auctioned off as part of this year's Weedon Bec fete – the first event like it in the village for several years.

Organisers are holding a sealed bid auction for the script, which is for a

two-part episode in the most recent series entitled 'Rise of the Cybermen' and

'The Age of Steel', shown earlier this year.

The script has been signed by its writer Tom MacRae, who comes from Weedon and who has agreed to open the fete on September 23.

Mr MacRae is also hoping to bring along other signed books and memorabilia for the event as well as

a copy of his first book 'The Opposite' – a picture book for children.

Sealed bids for the script should be sent to Mr J Wilshire, Hillcroft, New Street, Weedon, NN7 4QS.
