Young Peter Capaldi’s Doctor Who Drawing, Plus Pre-Order His Toy



That’s pretty damn good, kind of a Ralph Steadman/Quentin Blake mix going on. i09 has more, including his attempts to run the Doctor Who fan club back then. I’d say those acts of nerdery paid off. Took a while, though – he started as a teen and finally got to be the Doctor in his fifties. That’s inspiring.

In other news, you can already place your order for Capaldi’s first action figure, a $21.99 Mego-style doll by BifBangPow. No images yet, but expect a cloth outfit and a decent likeness.
