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.

How did you find out you were the going to be the next doctor?
