Kasterborous Defies You Not To Get Teary

It’s fair to say that as I watched The Day of the Doctor at the Middlesbrough Cineworld in 3D last Saturday evening, I got somewhat over-excited.

For one, being surrounded by several hundred Doctor Who fans – most of who were kitted out in fezzes and scarves and other cosplay wonderment – was superb. The popcorn was good too.

Although I nearly did Mrs Kasterborous an injury when the Doctors appeared plotting their ingenious salvation of Gallifrey (I held her hand too tight) and got a smack around the head when the CapaldiDoc glared at the universe (I gripped tighter) nothing prepared me for the floods of tears that followed when this chap turned up.

If you click play, dear Kasterborite, expect to get emotional.

And then tell me… has anyone written any fanfic starring the Curator yet?
