[Updated] Peter Capaldi Designed An Adorable TARDIS/Paddington Bear Statue For Charity
Marmalade and fish sticks, anyone?

Sure, the upcoming Paddington movie looks like a childhood-ruining monstrosity of Michael Bay proportions, but look at this incredibly cute silver lining!
According to BBCAmerica, the Paddington Trail is an interactive, semi-permanent treasure hunt across London honoring beloved characters in children’s literature while simultaneously raising funds for the National Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Children. As part of his role in the upcoming film, Capaldi was asked to design a Paddington for the trail, and honored Doctor Who by creating a TARDIS-inspired bear (bigger on the inside for marmalade sandwich storage purposes, notes the BBC) with a Dalek on his back. Capaldi’s Paddington has been placed, appropriately, on the Prime Meridian line in Greenwich, the exact place from which we human’s mark the beginning and end of time and space.
Emma Watson and various other public figures are also slated to participate on the Paddington Trail, which means a lot more adorableness is about to come down the pipe–you can even check out Benedict Cumberbatch’s Sherlock-inspired bear below.
All is forgiven, Paddington. I think.
