Impersonation of medical practitioners is on the rise

A Home Office report today suggested that it was ‘highly likely’ Doctor Who star David Tennant would have his identity stolen by a younger man ‘within the year’.  The report criticised Tennant, 38, for his lax attitude to personal security, and noted that such carelessness ‘has had serious consequences in the past’, citing the case of veteran actor Colin Baker who was left homeless for 18 months in 1987 after his identity was stolen by fraudster Sylvester McCoy.  Experts have urged Tennant to regularly check his bank statements for suspicious scarf purchases, while police have told him he might also want to keep an eye on his motor and his girlfriend.
