Peter Capaldi Comforts A Nine-Year-Old Doctor Who Fan With Sweet Christmas Letter

With “Twice Upon A Time” over, we said our tearful goodbyes to Peter Capaldi as the Tweflth Doctor. It was said to see him go.

As with everything though, the children who witness their first regeneration take it rough. The Doctor, after all, may be forever. This particular era has ended and a new one will begin come the fall.

Still Capaldi proved as to why he’s an amazing sort of person and Doctor by comforting a nine-year-old fan who was particularly devastated by his departure from the series.

In a Twitter post from Brian McGilloway of Strabane, Ireland, he shared what his son, David, received from Capaldi.

“Dear David,

I hope you are having a very merry Xmas. Xmas is always good fun. Well, not always. Not every single second. Regenerating is not completely good fun. And it usually happens about Xmas-time. But you know what? Even though it can be a little bit icky (like really bad flu) it has always, always turned out good for Dr. Who.

The new doctor always becomes your favorite and the one that goes… well, he never really goes, he is always there, somewhere in time and space, and if you think about him hard enough you’ll see him, and he’ll see you.

t’s like the Doctor says, ‘Everything ends and it’s always sad. But everything begins again, and that’s always happy. Be happy.’ So, have a brilliant Xmas, a happy new year, and a wonderful life — I’m sure you will.

All the best, Peter Capaldi, Doctor ?”

Oh God! My heart! Capaldi is truly a class act all the way. While we’re sad to see him go, we’re excited to see what Jodie Whittaker will bring to the role as the Thirteenth Doctor (and the first woman in the role).
