Peter Capaldi Wanted To Run The Doctor Who Fan Club | SFX


If you saw Doctor Who Live on Sunday night, or our previous posts on the subject here and here, you’ll know that Twelfth Doctor Peter Capaldi is a lifelong Doctor Who fan. But did you know that the youthful Capaldi was so keen on the series that he wanted to run the Official Doctor Who Fan Club?
Further proof that the actor is One Of Us comes in the book The Official Doctor Who Fan Club Volume One (published last year). It recounts how the dormant club was taken over in January 1971 by Edinburgh-based 13-year-old fan Keith Miller. He was given assistance from the BBC, who agreed to post off copies of his newsletter to save him money on postage. He also maintained a regular, friendly correspondence with Sarah Newman, secretary of Doctor Who producer Barry Letts.


You know what we think? Chances are, somewhere out here on Tumblr, the 16th Doctor is reading this post right now.
