DOCTOR Who fanatic Ellis Boyd celebrated his barmitzvah at Beth Hamidrash Hagadol Synagogue on Shabbat.

And a full-size Tardis and 'luminous' green meal was a centrepiece during the festivities.

The son of Lisa and Iain Boyd, of Alwoodley, Ellis recently started attending King David High School in Manchester.

A keen swimmer, Ellis enjoys design technology for which he received a prize while at the Grammar School at Leeds prior to switching high schools.

He also enjoys computing and is a Zone member. A scout with 22nd North Leeds (Hillel) troupe, Ellis is following in the footsteps of his grandfather Martin Boyd, who was a cub leader for more than 30 years.

Great-grandmother Pauline Boyd, grandparents Bernice and Martin Boyd and Joan and Roy Williams along with guests from Israel, Bournemouth, Manchester, London and Africa attended the simchah.

Ellis has a nine-year-old sister, Natasha, who attends the Grammar School at Leeds.
