Filming for the next season of Doctor Who has been under way for a while, and intrepid fans have been tracking down the shoots to get a glimpse at the happenings. Seeing the new Doctor, Peter Capaldi, is probably at the forefront of any visitor’s mind, and that was definitely true for one little girl in a Dalek costume. Roxann and her family luckily happened upon shooting in Cardiff. Over at her blog, her mother says:
“My youngest has autism and when matt smith said he was leaving she was worried, because she goes on adventures with doctor who and Clara and she was worried that the new doctor ( Peter ) would not like her and wouldn’t want to join in her games.”
So, Roxann patiently waited and she finally got her chance to talk with Peter Capaldi. The new Doctor reassured Roxann in the sweetest way. He took out his phone and scrolled through photos to show the girl one of him, Matt Smith, and Jenna Coleman. Then he told Roxann, “They say it’s okay for me to be the Doctor, so I hope you think it would be okay for me to be the Doctor too.” Sniffle.
