"In Cincinnati, in a certain locality, there has been an intense excitement occasioned by the discovery that a Doctor had fallen in love with an undertaker’s wife. It might have been a little more natural perhaps, if the undertaker had fallen in love with the Doctor."

At first I thought this was a Doctor Who related rather than an historical post.
"HIS GREATEST moment of Doctor Who fanboy-fantasy realization thus far came when he was called upon for the first time to operate the TARDIS, the homely 60s-era London police box that serves as the Doctor’s vessel for time travel. As he stood surrounded by set technicians explaining how to use it, Capaldi says, “I had to be very patient and not say to them, ‘I know exactly how to operate it. You don’t have to tell me a thing. Moon Man is here.’"
