So my son and I were strolling across the bridge towards St Pauls Cathedral from Shakespeare’s Globe today in London… And this is what happened. We came across a filming of Doctor Who and I couldn’t believe my eyes. We’re only here on holiday and we had just been to the Who shop were my son was asking about the Doctor and seriously… This is so amazingly unbelievable! Never in my life did I think I’d ever get to meet the Doctor! I am mostly happy about my son’s dream coming true, he is over the moon and says he really believes in the Doctor now.
Also, Peter Capaldi is the loveliest and nicest person I ever met. They had just taken a break from filming when my son called “Doctor!” after him. Peter turned around, smiled and started chatting with him! My son asked him where he had his TARDIS, “just around the corner Peter replied and asked what his name was.
Then I dared to ask if he would mind if I took a picture of him. The security guy objected and began saying something about it being unfair to others and them being busy filming, Peter completely ignored that and said that he was just going to take care of the little fellow first! And he did!
I am writing this down as if I’m able to keep myself together but. .. I am still dying the fangirl death inside and I can’t believe my luck! That the impossible thing happened!
My son and I are counting down to August 23rd now :D
