Scottish actor Peter Capaldi is not only one of the best doctors to ever exist on "Doctor Who" (still can’t get over the spoon battle with Robin Hood, tbh), he’s also a super awesome human being IRL.
Capaldi recorded this sweet video message after receiving a letter from a nine-year-old autistic boy whose nanny recently passed away. The best part is, he does it completely in character as the Twelfth Doctor, even mentioning his partner-in-crime, Clara.
“Sometimes bad things happen to us. And you know what, Thomas? Sometimes sad things happen to us too,” Capaldi says to the camera. “So it’s nice to know that there’s somebody like you out there who’s on our side. And you should know that we’re on your side too.”
According to Ross Goddall, the video arrived just before his son Thomas’ nanny’s funeral. He said it “helped him to deal with his grief in a profound way.”
“Made such a huge difference and helped him cope with the hardest of days,” Goodall posted on YouTube. “It was an incredibly kind thing to do that has help Thomas gain perspective and not feel so alone in his grief. This message seems to have given him the strength to keep going, with his chin up.”
Is there anything in the world cuter than this?!
No, Clara, there is not.
