As if you needed another reason to love new Doctor Who star Peter Capaldi; here’s something that will melt the hearts of fans everywhere.
While filming Doctor Who Series 8, the Twelfth Doctor and Jenna Coleman took the time to reassure a little autistic child dressed as a Dalek that it would be okay for him to be the Doctor now.
The clip, posted by a fan to YouTube, was soon turned into a series of GIFS; leading to the aunt of the concerned young girl to post this explanation on her Tumblr page:
Hiya, the little girl in the dalek outfit is my niece, she’s autistic and was finding it difficult coming to terms with the regeneration as Matt Smith’s doctor is her imaginary friend, she was worried that Peter Capaldi wouldn’t want to play with her.
We are very ecstatic that he and Jenna took time to reassure her. He’s brilliant!
