What Happened When The Doctors Did Lunch…

So what happens when two versions of the same man are in the same time and place?

Smith and Capaldi

It’s a pair-o-Docs!

Ok, sorry for the bad pun but recently, current Doctor Matt Smith and future Doctor Peter Capaldi were spotted having lunch together at Wolseley in London. When asked about the lunch meeting, Smith told the Daily Mirror that the two had gotten together to discuss the role of the Doctor. But he says that the actor, set to take over the role, doesn’t need any pointers.

I really rate Peter – he’s such an amazing actor and completely right for the part.


We went out for lunch to talk Doctor tactics. I’m not sure if I gave him any real ideas because it’s not like he needs much help. He’ll play the Doctor in his own way – and do it brilliantly. I can’t wait to see what he does with the part.

I, for one, am glad to hear that Matt thinks Peter more than capable of handling the part of the Doctor. It takes someone who has lived in the role to really know what it entails and if someone else could handle it all. But I am still among the few that aren’t completely sure of our new Doctor. I know he’s a good actor, but he hasn’t wowed me just yet. I think it will take fully seeing him in the role and how he plays it to know if I will like him as our beloved Doctor.

What are your thoughts? Anyone else still a bit hesitant in declaring that Capaldi is “perfect” for the role?

Rebecca is still new to the Who world, but is no stranger to sci-fi, being a life long Trekkie. When not watching, reading, blogging, or talking about Doctor Who, she watches so many movies and reads so many books she has to keep a list of both so she doesn't forget any of them. She wishes she could have been with the Doctor and Amy when they met Van Gogh.
