BARMY bakers told a disabled boy's mum he couldn't have a Dr Who birthday cake - unless he got star David Tennant 's permission first.
Asda bosses claimed it would breach strict copyright laws unless the actor agreed to have his picture on 11-year-old Robin Freeman's cake.
But then mum Jane, 36, asked The Sun to help.
And we raced one of our copyrighted pictures of Tennant as the Doctor to the store in Cannock, Staffs.
They finally agreed to bake Robin's special cake and, complete with 11 candles, we rushed it to the church hall where he held a party for 20 pals.
Last night Jane, from Rugeley, said: "You saved the day." And Robin, who suffers from dyslexia and learning difficulties, added: "It's been a good birthday ."
Asda said: "With the Sun's help we were happy to produce the birthday cake the boy wanted."
