Buona Fortuna Numero 12

Very pleased with the news that Peter Capaldi is to be the 12th Doctor, he was my favourite choice.

Nice to have a Doctor that is older than me (just) again !

In another one of life's strange coincidences, I notice that his father emigrated to this country from Picinisco in Italy - which is the same place that my mother emigrated from, probably at about the same time for similar reasons, I imagine.

Her maiden name was Ferri, and here is a photo of her and my father (on the right), on their honeymoon, visiting their relatives in the 1950's.

If Peter fancies a practice spin in the Tardis he'll receive a warm Italian welcome at the Cottage!

Who's Who 3

Another contender for the 12th Doctor - Damien Molony.

If they bottle out of going for an older Doctor, I think he could be a good choice. Once again, he is an actor who has pulled off mixing the light with the dark, and is used to taking over a lead role from a departing actor.
