In case you have been living under a rock, Peter Capaldi is quickly emerging as the nicest, kindest, fan-oriented guy to ever wear the title The Doctor. A few lucky fans got to see this first hand when Capaldi made a surprise visit to the Doctor Who Experience.
As part of the celebration for the 10th anniversary of the revived series, the Twelfth Doctor showed up in character to pal around with some young Whovians at the Cardiff exhibit. He even helped them escape the deadly clutches of a Dalek and the titular creature from the “Mummy on the Orient Express” episode in season 8. The kids also got to ask The Doctor some delightfully sweet and surprisingly well thought out questions, which Capaldi answered in character as well.A diehard Whovian himself, Capaldi even started to tear up during the Q&A when he mentioned The Doctor’s granddaughter Susan. The first iteration of the Time Lord traveled with Susan before eventually having to say goodbye to her and never returning, despite his promise to do so.
