Doctor Who is all about nostalgia for me. When you watch a single television show for over thirty years you begin to feel a bit attached. I’ve a lost all ability to critically judge the show by now and pretty much everything they do is magic. I think it can be universally accepted that the twelfth Doctor’s (Peter Capaldi) meeting with actress Katy Manning is actual magic. She was the third Doctor’s (Jon Pertwee) companion from 1971-1973 and one of the favorites.
It is not a secret that Peter Capaldi grew up watching Doctor Who and that his style draws significant inspiration from his predecessor. It is completely fitting that Katy would visit the set and recreate the iconic photo below to the delight of Who fans everywhere.
