This week brought an avalanche of awesomeness in the form of set reports from Hull, giving us a first look at the cast of The Personal History of David Copperfield in their glorious costumes. How could I not draw them? And so far I’m halfway through the book.
The film is…
At the 92nd Academy Awards, nominee/winner for
Best Supporting Actor
Best Adapted Screenplay
and everything else
@andymedcalf Nice to meet Peter Capaldi today. Lovely chap. It’s his first time in Hull - filming David Copperfield - he was keen to talk about Mick Ronson (he’s visited his memorial). pic.twitter.com/RSWeQIYZyw
@CarrieRose_ I can’t believe I also got to meet Peter Capaldi on the set of David Copperfield yesterday! I love how his costume gave me serious 12th Doctor vibes haha! He was so lovely stopping to talk to everyone! ❤ pic.twitter.com/TKlrVBmBYz
And I’m reposting this one to note that this is the one year anniversary of Peter’s last day filming Doctor Who. It seems fitting that he’d spend part of the day signing autographs, taking selfies and by all accounts drawing some daleks for fans waiting for him near the set.
@jaquigbythesea Had to pinch myself this morning when on my way to work I bumped into Peter Capaldi. Come to #hull where the streets are lined with the country’s finest theatrical and film making talents. #cityofculture pic.twitter.com/glUZzCxrM2
