Doctor Who: read the fan letter bookies’ favourite Peter Capaldi wrote to Radio Times aged 15

via radiotimes: 

Yesterday, Peter Capaldi’s name entered the frame as the 2-1 favourite to play the next Doctor, the 12th or possibly 13th Doctor (depending on how we’ll factor John Hurt’s incarnation into the official sequence).

How likely is such a high-profile casting? Despite Steven Moffat’s wish for an older Time Lord, the former The Thick of It star’s availability and how much dosh such a top-drawer actor might cost the BBC, the most important factor that could swing it is that – like David Tennant before him – Peter Capaldi is a Doctor Who fan. And I mean a HUGE Doctor Who fan.  

He was a key figure in the world of fandom in the 1970s, even pre-dating the formation of DWAS (the Doctor Who Appreciation Society) in 1976. Aged 15, he pinned his colours to the mast in thisletter published in Radio Timesin February 1974.
