Whether you’re a critic or a jaded fan, perhaps the best response I can give is not to say “Watch Heaven Sent” or any of the other amazing episodes this man has done. Or the convention appearances and interviews he gave with Jenna Coleman. No. My response is this video showing Peter Capaldi improvising an entire performance as the Doctor at the Doctor Who Experience in 2015. During the Q&A he remained in character and gave an emotional response to wanting to see his granddaughter again. And then he more or less reaffirms the Whouffaldi concept by stating outright that the Doctor loves Clara. And look at the kids hanging on his every word. This is not a slight against the other actors who played the role, but while I know Tom Baker and Jon Pertwee and I think even William Hartnell made the occasional public appearance in character, I don’t think there is precedent for the level this event reached. In some respects this could almost trigger a debate on whether there is canon here.
I popped into the Doctor Who Experience once. I had this Saturday off and I thought of what I could do this day. So I decided it is going to be Doctor Who at the Doctor Who Experience. My wife actually persuaded me to do it. She said “you are going to make a lot of people very happy”. And I did. But they made me so happy, just by their affection. There were hundreds of fans and more kept on coming. I was kneeling down because I had my photograph taken with some children and suddenly this little girl screamed “Doctor Who”. And she came running and threw her arms around my neck. She was very small and she totally believed in Doctor Who. It was absolutely lovely. That was a wonderful experience. You are at the centre of a child’s utter believe in the magic of this character.
I haven’t really posted much about this but at the 1st of May me and my best friend Hanna went to the Doctor Who experience! It was so unbelievable to be there! We could stand inside Ten’s TARDIS aka the TARDIS of my favourite Doctor! that was so unbelievably cool and i’m so happy with those great detailed photos I shot there
