BBC teases image of Peter Capaldi's mug

THE BBC has released an exclusive picture of new Doctor Who Peter Capaldi’s mug.

As the corporation stokes excitement with a constant flow of Capaldi information, fans are feasting their eyes on the drinking vessel that the actor uses between takes.

36-year-old Whovian Tom Logan said: “It’s more curvaceous than I expected, and the ‘Tea’ logo with the letters at funny angles is very unusual.

“It suggests that the new Doctor will have a quirky sense of humour and be a sensualist with an appreciation of the female form.”

Who fan Emma Bradford said: “Looking at the mug, it’s easy to imagine Peter Capaldi enjoying a variety of drinks from it.

“Tea, obviously, but also coffee and the occasional hot chocolate for a treat. Maybe even water.”

The BBC refused to confirm where the mug was Capaldi’s personal property or one of a mismatched ‘pool’ of mugs provided by on-set caterers.

A spokesman said: “To find out you’ll have to watch the forthcoming BBC2 four-part special Capaldi’s Mug.”

Angry Birds admits to being Islamo-fascist boot camp

The makers of Angry Birds have admitted that the game is a virtual training camp for militant Islam.

Following an undercover operation by America’s National Security Agency, developer Rovio revealed it was secretly based in the Pakistani city of Peshawar and its chief executive now has a drone hurtling towards his face.

A Rovio spokesman said: “We believe that pigs are unclean animals, just like you are. So, in the game, the pigs represent you and your perverted western desires.

“We are the beautiful birds with genuine grievances that will bring your society crashing to the ground.

“It helps to strengthen the ideological commitment of our trainees, while also being fun.

“We were going to call the game ‘Perverted Western Desires’ but we thought that would be a bit of a giveaway.”

Nikki Hollis, from London, said: “To me it’s just a thing I do for hours on end when I’m supposed to be working.

“But now you mention it, I have been drinking less and thinking that all my friends are total sluts.”
