Peter called his agent back to see if he got the part and her first words were “Hello Doctor”
He wrote a letter when he was fifteen about celebrating the 50th anniversary and now, in that year, he’s playing the Doctor.
He saw Matt’s first episode and went up to him and told him how great it was.
He’s been a fan pretty much all his life and knows the Doctor, AND NOW HE IS PLAYING HIM.
