Hoped as much – but now confirmed … the brilliant PETER CAPALDI is the new DOCTOR WHO.
As always it’s a hard act to follow. Expectations are huge. Matt Smith was a radical choice too – an unknown actor (then!) but he brought physicality, lunacy and vunerability to the role and made it his own. Capaldi is a daring gamble for sure and Christ knows what he will bring to the role. It’s hard to imagine MALCOLM TUCKER delivering such acerbic horrifying insults as THE DOCTOR …

WATCH THIS: Malcolm in ‘THE THICK OF IT’
but then, of course, we know better when we watch other performances by CAPALDI. From the horrific outbursts of Malcolm Tucker we witness this heart-breaking and dramatic outburst of emotion in one the best BBC dramas on TV this year, (also starring the exquisite Ben Wishaw, Dominic West and the amazing Romola Garai). This is Capaldi as the Head of News when he finds out his daughter is dead – the powerful performance still astounds and shocks me.
WATCH THIS: Randall Brown in ‘THE HOUR’
Interesting choice then.
From a DOCTOR WHO fan, who really did hide behind the sofa and have nightmares when the Daleks first appeared in 1963, I wish you the best of luck, Mr Capaldi. I get the feeling we’re in for another extreme regeneration.
BRING IT ON!

Richard Clark-Monks sent this to me …
It’s weird to see 25 of my album sleeves together! I was struck immediately by the diversity of styles. I guess that’s testament to my philosophy of matching the design to the client rather than insisting I push an Airfix style to all. That’s a good thing but still weird though.
Gives an idea of what you can expect during
Exhibition and Talks at the AIRFIX LOUNGE.
Exhibitions FREE – but bought your tickets for the Talks yet?
Only 9 quid for what should be, and I quote …
‘Highly entertaining, often hilarious and possibly libellous,
– an inspiration to both designers and music fans alike.
