Apparently, today is the 83rd birthday of Tom Baker who played Dr Who in the famous BBC TV programme which is still running to this day.
Here's a lovely story about Tom Baker posted by Amanda on Twitter.
So Happy Birthday, Dr Who!
I went to the same school as the new Doctor Who, Peter Capaldi, so let's hear a cheer for our old alma mater, St Ninian's High School in Kirtintilloch.
Now as I recall Peter Capaldi was the year below me at St. Ninian's, but I remember him having an interest in acting and performing because he was never much into football which was my big thing at secondary school, apart from getting myself a good education.
Anyway, I suspect Peter will bring something different to his role as the new Time Lord and wouldn't it be great if the new series worked in a topical reference to the looming referendum on Scottish independence.
Maybe the new Doctor even has a vote on 18 September, if he's resident in Scotland that is, but then again being a Time Lord he probably knows the result already.
