A few photos of Peter Capaldi, Jenna Coleman and Tom Riley filming Doctor Who series 8 episode 3, called “Robots of Sherwood”, in Fforest Fawr. You can probably guess who Tom is playing!
Okay, who gave Peter Capaldi a cape?
Mission complete! I’ll post this on my findpeter blog later but wanted to share with you guys first.
I hadn’t intended on going today after the 7 hour stint yesterday but one of the fans I was chatting to wanted to buy a print from me so I headed over. There were a few folks from yesterday there already and we had a good chat about all things Who.
Then, suddenly out came some crew and there he was. This time I wasn’t shy and yelled “I HAVE A GIFT FOR YOU PETER”. A few seconds later, not giving the crew a choice, Peter had stomped his way across to us.
He was very gracious and kept thanking me for the gift. He offered for photos which we weren’t expecting (we all had a look of bewildered panic when he suggested taking some). He was being pushed for time so the pictures are rushed - AND I LOOK LIKE A NUMPTY - but it was all really lovely. I said to him that I hoped he liked the print and he said “I’m sure I will, thank you”.
So there we go. I can now sleep for a week.
Mark Andrews at Big Chief Studios, the maker of the action figures, commented on the meeting and photo shoot:
"Both Matt and Karen were amazing, we have had the pleasure of meeting them both separately before, but together their chemistry is electric.”
