[krvod url=https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KtPtUezpKEs]In the midst of all the excitement leading up to Peter Capaldi’s first episode as the new Doctor, we pause to wish him a most happy birthday.

Peter Capaldi was born April 14, 1958, so he’s 56 years old today.  One of the lesser-known facts about Peter is that he grew up as a Doctor Who fan himself, and did fan art of it that is rather accomplished and shows genuine artist ability.  We present a video from Doctor Puppet, hand made stop motion animations made in New York City, which honors Peter, his clever drawings, and the day of his birth.

Being the Doctor is, for him, the culmination of a lifelong dream. Welcome to a new and larger world, Mr. Capaldi.  We hope you’re ready.  We know we are.

Happy birthday.
