Peter Capaldi is Doctor Who...?
Cheesy as it is, I can't let this momentous news pass without comment - I actually squealed and clapped my hands together when I saw that Peter Capaldi is to be the new Doctor. As C said - 'I'm one hand-shake away from the Doctor!' As I quickly corrected him, he's actually one peck on the cheek away from the Doctor... The Doctor and I went to Glasgow School of Art, both doing illustration, and he was as interesting and charismatic back then as he still appears to be now. Lovely to see a proper big, goofy grin from him on the telly last night when it was announced - he must be chuffed to bits! Of course, cue a sleepless night for me, with full-blown mid-life crisis, thinking, 'Erk, one of my contemporaries is going to be THE DOCTOR....! What have I done with my life!!'
