Peter Capaldi Tells 9-Year-Old Autistic Boy “Sometimes Bad Things Happen” In Special Video Message From The Doctor

TARDIS Tissues Handy?

Proving that Twelve really does care about humanity (really!), Peter Capaldi has sent a lovely video to an autistic child to help him overcome a loss.

The video description reads:

A lovely message from Peter Capaldi to my 9 year old autistic son. This arrived just before Thomas’ nanny’s funeral and helped him to deal with his grief in a profound way. Thankyou Peter so much.

This is what the Doctor is really about. Thanks for being a good one, Capaldi.
