Time Lord at the Academy
Here's a picture of my pal Michael the (possible) Whovian with actor Donald Sumpter at the final home match with Man United. Sumpter played Rassilon the Lord High President of the Time Lords in the last series of Doctor Who, before being told to "Get off my planet!" by Peter Capaldi. He also played a captain in the Jon Pertwee story The Sea Devils back in the 1970s and I remember him having quite a saucy role in The Buddha of Suburbia. Donald had a season ticket in the East Stand so let's hope he'll be bringing his Time Lord regalia to the Olympic Stadium next season along with a few mates from Gallifrey to heal any time rifts.
