Jessica Hynes’ Whoodle

Human Nature and upcoming 2009 Doctor Who special guest star Jessica Hynes is one of many celebrities – actors, musicians and sports stars – to have contributed to a gallery of 150 drawings being used by Action for Children.

Others involved include Brian Blessed (Mindwarp), Joanna Lumley (The Curse of the Fatal Death), Alexei Sayle (Revelation of the Daleks), Graham Cole (The Bill, 1980s Cyberman), Tony Adams and Vanessa Mae. Each has doodled the start and end of a personal change at some point in their lives in a single, unbroken line.

Jessica Hynes drew a pair of shoes with a line connecting them to the Old Vic theatre, describing her transformation from shop girl to actress.

“I never gave up and had as much fun working in a shoe shop as I did working on Doctor Who – after all the journey is the thing, not the destination.”

The full gallery – used to highlight the work Action for Children does with the vulnerable – is available at www.actionforchildren.org.uk,
