10

The sixth Doctor Who episode of Series 10, Extremis, aired a year ago on this date (May 20, 2017). It was the first episode to the start of the Monk Trilogy. Oh, yes, and the Doctor was blind, adding extra stress and frustration to the poor man. Imagine trying to save a planet you’ve come to love and you can’t even see your own hand in front of your face. The struggle was felt by us all, Doctor. 💔

“I’d tell my younger self: Worrying that you are crap is a waste of time. Worrying that you can’t do it is a waste of time. Worrying that you failed is a waste of time. No one cares. Just get on with it. I’d tell him to celebrate being different. In the end, my Glasgow accent didn’t matter. The fact I was different would provide me with the employment I’ve had.”

— Happy 60th Birthday, Peter Capaldi! (April 14, 1958) ❤

i really do love peter capaldi a lot heres some reasons why:

-he was the lead singer of a punk band called the dreamboys while at art college

-he cites his wife as his first kiss because none of the ones before her mattered because he loves her so much

-he won an oscar for directing a short film about franz kafka which just sounds great doesnt it

-he almost gave up on his career a year later

-when he was a kid he wrote to the doctor who fanclub so much the leaders of it hated him

-when graham norton brought this up he did this:

-he didnt give up on his career and he ended up being his childhood hero ;___;

happy birth peter ily
