Doctor Who News Peter Capaldi IS the Twelfth Doctor Who!

Time Lords Do Lunch!

Thee Telegraph’s gossip column Mandrake has revealed that Matt Smith and Peter Capaldi were spotted having a Time Lord lunch yesterday!



Sadly there are no photos of the pair, but we’re told that it was a light-hearted affair, at the “fashionable” Wolseley restaurant in that there London. Said a whispering fellow diner:

It looked like quite a jolly lunch… Peter was laughing a lot.

We can, of course, only guess at what they were talking about. Perhaps it was mocking Steven Moffat behind his back. Perhaps Matt was regaling his successor with stories about Jenna Coleman.

Or perhaps he was explaining how to overcome the negative pull on the helmic regulator.

Peter Capaldi IS the Twelfth Doctor Who!

The laughter, of course, might be attributed to Capaldi – after all, he has just won his dream job. In contrast, Matt Smith is leaving it. And to make matters worse, the Eleventh Doctor actor was apparently aided by a crutch. Let’s hope it doesn’t affect any filming he still has to complete…

    Maybe Capaldi kicked him to try to get him to leave sooner? :)

    Id seen the pic from Reddit of Matt apparently on crutches but there wasn’t any detail to go with it. This seems to confirm he got hurt or something tho.
    And frankly I think he was done filming ages ago.
    Would have loved to be a fly on the wall for that convo!!

    Negative pull on your helmet regulator ???
    You really would want the advice of a Doctor on that one…..

      Or at least reverse the polarity of the neutron flow, and switch up to a positive pull on the helmic regulator. Is that a helmic regulator in your pocket, or are you just happy to see Clara?

    Perhaps Matt was passing on the advice David gave him.

    I heard about this crutch incident. Picture here:

    He’s yet to do the Christmas special/regeneration which is set to film in September. Maybe if they film it a month later he’ll be fully healed and his hair will be a bit longer……if nothing else, I hope they have a good wig for him….

    • avatar krumstets says:

      Alternatively they could insert something into the script where he mentions having just come from the barber’s.

      With as much lying is as done anymore by everyone surrounding the show, I won’t believe it till I see a new pic of him on set in the coming months. Other wise I’ll still hold to my “he’s already filmed his bit” theory. Cause it’s now September and he may be healed but that hair is still extra short. So if he hasn’t they better have an EXCELLENT wig maker on staff. If its a shoddy job it’ll piss a lot of people off. If they do have him use his hair as it is even MORE people will rant if it isn’t any part of the Doc “showing up with a new suit and a haircut” and taking River off to the Singing Towers…
