[edit]

ACTOR Christopher Eccleston received substantial undisclosed libel damages yesterday over a claim that he reacted violently to a suggestion about how he should portray a role. London's High Court heard that the 40-year-old — the next Doctor Who — was caused distress by the book 'Laundrettes And Lovers', a tribute to film company Working Title.

In the book, Michael Hirst, who wrote the screenplay for the film 'Elizabeth', in which Mr Eccleston acted, alleged that the actor reacted violently to his suggestion how to play a particular scene, saying that he would never allow himself to appear sexually impotent
