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!
