Doctor Who Fan Capaldi Dreams of Menoptra!
When asked about the early Who series he watched as a child, the Twelfth Doctor actor states:
In that context, they succeeded immeasurably… They were triumphs of imagination.
And further warming the hearts of fans everywhere, Capaldi remembers how he felt watching those 1960s episodes for the first time.
Mr. Capaldi absolutely hits the nail on the head when it comes to how many fans feel about the classic series and exactly why their love of the show has lasted so long. Those done-on-a-shoestring episodes had to rely on a mix of imagination, storytelling, and charm, and it’s easy to see why a now-grown-up Peter Capaldi would want to be the Doctor and create some of those dreams for a new generation.
Kasterborites, do you miss the wobbly sets and flimsy monsters? Do the new episodes feel any less “magical” to you because of the higher budgets and computery special effects?
