You may be asking yourselves ZOMG! How did that happen? The answer's easy as pie. Last weekend, Peter Capaldi, Doctor Who showrunner Steven Moffat and frequent Who writer and Sherlock co-creator Mark Gatiss appeared at the Doctor Who Festival in Australia, aka the Land Down Under.

While there, the Time Lord hopped onto a plane (instead of getting into his TARDIS, which would have been so much FASTER) and headed to New Zealand to visit the Shire, sonic sunglasses in tow. You can see two cool shots of the actor on his visit to Hobbiton and Bag End, Bilbo Baggins’ beloved hobbit hole and home. Check out the pics below, and let us know what you think!
