Doctor Who News Capaldi and Pertwee

Published on October 24th, 2013 | by Drew Boynton

Pertwee meets Capaldi!

The son of the Third Doctor meets the soon-to-be Twelfth in a dramatic recent instagram photo posted by Sean Pertwee.

Sean, the son of 1970s Doctor Jon Pertwee, is quite a popular and busy actor in his own right and has a lengthy list of credits on IMDB, most recently as Lestrade in Elementary. None as yet, though, for the BBC’s upcoming drama, The Musketeers, where this photo seems to have originated from.

The actual key to all of this may be the third man in the picture, Skins and The Borgias actor Luke Pasqualino, who is appearing with Capaldi in The Musketeers and previously acted with Pertwee in the series Jo.

The real question is, why are the three men reeling in obvious horror? What do they see!? An invading Dalek fleet? The identity of John Hurt’s Doctor revealed? Matt Smith’s new wig? Steven Moffat streaking naked through the halls of the BBC?

In all seriousness, it is nice to see these three men together in one photo… and obviously enjoying themselves. It is also very cool to see a semi-link to Doctor Who‘s past and future between Pertwee and Capaldi. And who knows, maybe these men will turn up in a future Doctor Who episode together? One can only hope!

So, Kasterborites, if you could instagram yourself with one Doctor Who star, who would it be?

    Well, I think it would have to be Mad Old Uncle Tom, as we both stare into camera, full of mystery, intrigue, and general bewilderment.
