In Which Whovian_Vie Met Peter Capaldi

It’s not too often that I am starstruck.

Then again, it’s not too often that I get the chance to BE starstruck. I’m not a celebrity chaser by nature, but when the opportunity came up for our TARDIS prop to be featured on television (specifically, the Space Channel in Canada) and participate in a meet-and-greet in Toronto on October 4th with Doctor Who principal actors Peter Capaldi and Pearl Mackie, and showrunners Steven Moffat and Brian Minchin; it was impossible to decline.

Let’s just say that the experience was so incredible I am still lost for words. All were gracious and articulate, and Peter Capaldi would top the guest list were I to transport us all back to the halcyon days of the literary salon. After a long day of nearly non-stop media, he still made time for the throng of fans waiting for him outside 299 Queen Street West, because “I used to be […] on the other side of the fence and will never forget that.”
