old glasgow

Glasgow High Street from the Cross. Taken by James Craig Annan in 1868 when he was commissioned by the Improvements Trust to photograph the slums of Glasgow’s old town which were due for demolition under the Glasgow City Improvements Act of 1866. The dark and narrow closes off the High Street and Saltmarket could be difficult to photograph but he overcame the problems and produced an important and sensitive account of the terrible living conditions.

Peter Capaldi to leave Doctor Who

BREAKING NEWS! “It (the new series of Doctor Who) will be my last… I feel it’s time to move on,” says actor Peter Capaldi. Peter confirms he’ll be stepping down in Xmas 2017, but “I’m still Doctor Who! We’re doing epic stuff! I’m not done yet!”

Mr Capaldi shocked fans by making the announcement during a BBC Radio 2 show with presenter Jo Whiley. He said he will leave Doctor Who at the end of the year. "I feel it’s time to move on,” he said.

The 58-year-old Glasgow-born star became the 12th actor to play the Doctor in 2013.

Okay just saying you are all going to have to come revive me if the Philinda’s Glasgow mission was the reason that Papa Fitz left…and since Coulson never joined up, this mission didn’t happen, and Papa Fitz was in Fitz’s life with AIDA helping things along by making FItz the son Papa Fitz wanted….even more if Papa Fitz WAS/IS indeed in cahoots with Radcliffe and/or AIDA in the real world.
