The Eleventh Doctor leaning and posing beside companion Clara Oswald for a Leica M3 selfie

2

So, Time Lords use Leica, eh?

Oh you, Eleven! The shutter button is on the other end!

The photo above shows British actor Matt Smith and actress Jenna-Louise Coleman posing for a selfie using a nice Leica M3 camera. It’s just one of the photos taken by Mark Harrison for a feature on The Times Magazine. Smith famously portrayed the eleventh incarnation of the Doctor, while Coleman starred as his latest time travel companion Clara Oswald for British science fiction TV show Doctor Who.

Aside from the lovely Leica M3, the Doctor — I mean Matt Smith — was also photographed holding a Rolleiflex TLR camera. Seems like Time Lords have a taste for luxuriously awesome analogue goodies, don’t you agree?

    What Else Can You Do with Lactase?

    A few months ago, I thought I had an intolerance against the milk sugar lactose. I got stomach aches every time I ate something with milk in it so I used lactase to prevent it. But when I consulted a doctor to be tested, they said it was something else.
