Cover Story: Who is Peter Capaldi?

A 51-year legacy, a role embodied by 12 predecessors… Expectations swirling around the latest star of Doctor Who have been galactic. Now, with the launch of the Tardis only weeks away, it’s time to consider the career and accomplishments of Scottish actor Peter Capaldi

Six writers reflect on their experiences of the touring troubadour, Bob Dylan; Lee Zachariah flies into the world of superhero films…their fortunes, their flops and their future; Mitchell Jordan discovers that Courtney Love still conquers all; and in ‘Roving Eye’, we see ‘street art’ from Sydney’s alfresco Elizabeth Street Gallery.   

The star of this edition’s ‘Vendor Profile’ is Garfield from Adelaide. And we have ‘Streetsheet’ contributions from Gary in Newcastle; David S, Christine H and Stuart B in Sydney; and Richard in Perth. We also have a great illustration from Kate C who (with Gus the dog) sells The Big Issue in Melbourne
