Peter Capaldi's Heartfelt Message To Young Fan Transcends Time And Space

You could travel through time and space and never find a sweeter story.

After receiving a letter from a young, autistic fan, Peter Capaldi, a.k.a. the new "Doctor Who," sent the fan a heartfelt message. From the YouTube description, it appears the 9-year-old boy was about to attend his nanny's funeral when he first saw the video from Capaldi. The actor told him, though sad things can happen when you're traveling through time, "It’s nice to know that there’s somebody like you out there who’s on our side. And you should know that we're on your side, too."

The recent "Doctor Who" season finale has reportedly received a lot of criticism for how it dealt with the subject of death and cremation, but it appears Capaldi couldn't have handled this situation more perfectly.
