THE latest Dr Who, Peter Capaldi, has sent a message to campaigners who are working on proposals to secure the future of Upper Norwood Library.
The greeting from the Time Lord came as the library prepared to hold a Doctor Who day tomorrow (Saturday) to coincide with the 50th anniversary of the television series.
His handwritten message says: "Save the Upper Norwood Library from extermination says the new old Doctor Who Peter Capaldi."
Robert Gibson, co-chairman of the Upper Norwood Library Trust, which is preparing to take over the running of the library in Westow Hill, said: "Someone who knows Peter told him about what we were doing and we were delighted when we received the message.
"It was very timely."
The Dr Who day will run from 10.30am to 4.30pm with events including a Dalek treasure hunt, a raffle, a Dr Who quiz and an art competition.
Youngsters will be invited to make Dr Who masks and bookmarks and join in a Dalek fighting game.
And everyone is being invited to come along dressed as their favourite Dr Who or another character from the series .
Mr Gibson said: "This will be fantastic community event for young and old alike, so come out from behind the sofa and join in."
