"Sean Pertwee: My Dad Jon was ‘very fond’ of Peter Capaldi"
From promo photos to their costumes, eagle-eyed fans have long been noticing certain similarities between new Doctor Peter Capaldi and the third incarnation of the Time Lord, Jon Pertwee. Well now his son, actor Sean Pertwee, has revealed that the two were friends.
Pertwee, who plays villain Sarazin in BBC1’s The Musketeers alongside Capaldi as Cardinal Richelieu, has been talking about his love of the actor and how close he is to his family.
"My father was very fond of Peter and Peter is an extremely lovely gentleman," he told PA. "He was very kind to my family when my father passed away, he was big fan of my dad’s actually. So personally the Pertwee household were absolutely delighted when he got the role of The Doctor."
He also gave his thoughts on how the 55 year-old Capaldi will fare after the fresh-faced tenure of Matt Smith.
"I think he’s going to bring some real gravitas and weight, which only comes with age. Taking nothing away from Matt (Smith), who I thought was great, I just think he’s going to stupendous. He’s going to have a completely different look.
"He’s such a phenomenal actor anyway I think he’ll be absolutely brilliant. I’m delighted he’s doing it." (x)
PUT IT BACK!!!!!!!
WHY?! You know David looks weirder without his eyebrows like Matt does with eyebrows OVER the thin ones he already has. Now you heard lost-in-the-pit. PUT DAVID’S EYEBROWS BACK ON DAVID OR I’LL EAT YOURS!

Rory Williams character study: Doing it properly
A tiny little character detail I always loved- Rory’s respect for the dead. Whether it’s because of his nurse’s training or some deeper reason, he’s always quietly adamant that things are done properly. Returning Alaya back to her kind, covering up the Doctor, pushing the funeral boat out to sea…whether the dead person in question is a friend or an enemy he treats them the same.
And, in The Big Bang Rory doesn’t get really angry with the Doctor until he casually steps over Amy’s dead body. Watch his face and body language! You can see how this is a man who’d willingly protect his true love’s corpse for two thousand years.
Casual reminder that Jack spent 1874 years buried beneath Cardiff.
Presuming that it takes him four minutes to be revived each time he dies of things which don’t require his entire body to re-grow itself (based on how long it took for him to revive after Suzie shot him), and that it takes six minutes for him to suffocate (brain death occurs roughly four minutes after loss of consciousness), he dies 52 595 times per year.
That means he died 98 563 030 times while buried underneath Cardiff.
People do NOT give this character enough credit. They look at him and they’re like “LOL he makes innuendos and fucks people” and think that’s the extent of his character. But he’s been through so much shit, and he has so much more depth than people give him credit for. He’s so fucking brave, and he’s one of my favorite characters of all time.
