Nik Nak’s Daily Teaser — 1-7-2017

Bleugh … 

I feel knackered … !

To be frank, though, that’s my own fault.

I will insist on staying up late, watching TV.

Which will probably tell you a lot.

Or, at least, that season one of American Horror Story is worth watching.


Which reminds me.

It’s a Saturday.

And it’s the last Saturday that Peter Capaldi will be appearing as the Doctor.

Bar the Christmas special, his era is over.

Which is something of a shame: Capaldi’s era, with it’s Hincliffe and Holmes era feel, it something I’ve found very watchable.

Talking of the special?

There’s been rumours that the Christmas special won’t just see a regeneration.

But the return of the First Doctor: played by David Bradley.

Capaldi’s regeneration?

Sounds interesting … !


Let’s move on, shall we?

And a thought …
“I was the first man to put on a dress and play it straight. That was something very fresh. Still is.”
Jamie Farr, born 1st July, 1934.
