The Diary

  • GLASGOW-BORN actor Peter Capaldi is getting good reviews for his new role as Dr Who.

  • WE pass on the thoughts of former police sergeant Alfie Moore, doing stand-up at the Edinburgh Fringe, who told the website Three Weeks:

  • A CHAP from Glasgow, now living in the rural south of England, tells us he applied for planning permission with his local council to have a bothy built on his land.

  • THE mothballed Byre Theatre in St Andrews has been saved by the university, which will take it over.

  • SAD to hear of the death of former Scottish Education Minister Sam Galbraith who, as a former neurosurgeon, was one of the brightest politicians in Scotland.
