Capaldi in Dislocated Thumb Shocker!

The Twelfth Doctor almost didn’t have ten fingers. Well… sort of. Ish.

In a story that sounds like it was devised by the Master himself, incoming Doctor actor Peter Capaldi was injured during one of his final days of filming on the BBC’s new Musketeers show. He got his thumb wound up in another actor’s costume during a fight scene when the unfortunate injury occurred.

Luckily, the finger faux pas will not inhibit Doctor Who‘s filming in any way.

Showing true toughness – and saving some of that regeneration energy that has been so… handy in the past – Mr. Capaldi snapped his own thumb back into place! I think even a Dalek might pass out at the thought of that!

So, Kasterborites, have you ever suffered Doctor Who-related injury at home or in the workplace? (And broken hearts due to Matt Smith or David Tennant leaving don’t count!)

Drew has been a fan of Doctor Who ever since he flipped through the channels late one night and saw a girl blowing up an army of funny robot men with nothing but a slingshot and some old coins. He currently lives somewhere in the woods of Missouri with his beautiful wife Barbara.
