Who's got my badger? by Gallifrey-Pirate Who's got my badger? by Gallifrey-Pirate
Yep, there'll be a lot of this sort of photo going up on dA but here's my version. So... I went to the 11th Hour this weekend and I had to pause while they changed the disc in the camera... and Mr Smith just looked at me and went "Oh my god... is that a Charlie the Badger???" Within seconds he was faffing with Charlie, I was faffing with where the heck to stand (because he's just a bit too awesome and my brain melted) and somehow we ended up with this brilliant image.

Thank you so much to the lovely cameraman at Starfury in Birmingham for taking this photo. Entirely (c) him for the snap, and BBC (c) for general Doctor Who-ness.

Oh my god, I would have fainted being that close to Matt Smith.
I am envious on multiple levels!
Lucky duck!
Wish I could've done that!

D'aw thank you for the envy |D <3 I'm honestly surprised I didn't faint myself. I managed to find some weird plateau of calm out of the sheer fear and excitement. Hopefully you'll get to do the same one day! -x-

That's an awesome pic.! You should have it framed and hanging on your wall. I haven't ran into any of my heros yet. Meaning a chance to take a photo with them or just talk to them.
Hope to someday meet him as well.

Thank you! I really hope you do get to meet him. He's an absolute sweetie. If I didn't feel like I looked a total derp, I'd definitely have to hang it up. I'm sure I'll work out somewhere to put it someday haha. The best part was definitely the little moments when I got to exchange words with him and the terrifying moment I stood in front of him and asked a question at the panel. I know he's just a lad doing a job, but I can't help the squeeing >.>

Bless ye <3 Yeah... that's probably why my face looked so awful in my first pic with Mr Smith. I was so distracted in the shot with the badger that I looked more natural -x-

Bless you <3 If you want my shirt, it's just a plain old Marks and Spencer's one, haha. I wish it was more like his one, the gorgeous one in Time Of The Angels >.< but I'll have to have one made someday.

P.s. I love the word "faffing." And I like you immediately for using it twice in a row, rapid-fire. Well done. ;D

Very lucky. Makes me laugh how its all come full circle. The Tardis door has the 'St John's Ambulance' badge on it and from the age of 5yrs until 10yrs old kids can learn first aid and do lots of things (a bit like Scouts and Guides) and they are called 'Badgers'. They then become cadets from 11yrs old.
Just a little bit of info there ;-)

You would be there with a freaking badger... I feel like the adjective "epic" is thrown around a little too casually these days, but honestly, it's the only one that comes to mind right now. Lucky! XD

Bahaha XD Thank you <3 Yes, I was extremely lucky that day. Got the chance to speak to him 4 times and each time something happened that meant he actually seemed to see me as a person and not "Rabid Fangirl No. X" Really nice experience. They say "don't meet your heroes". If it's Mr Smith, the phrase does NOT apply.
