My girls meet Peter Capaldi ( little Dalek )


Peter capaldi and Jenna Coleman talking to myself and my two daughters. 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 on our holiday to Cardiff we fell onto pot luck. We had gone for our lunch at eddies diner and came out to find that doctor who was being filmed. We had a chat with the crew and Jenna and Samuel had photos done with the girls. We were told Peter was not coming down for filming. After telling the crew about roxi and her games with dr who ( Matt ) and the worry she has about Peter. We were told to come back the next day.

So we went back chatted with more crew who told us to come back later when they had built the tardis. My daughters were so giddy Bernadette my eldest wore her tardis dress and Roxann my youngest wore her dalek outfit. We went for dinner as the crew didn’t want us waiting in the cold. Bernadette ate her dinner so fast and ran back down to watch them film. We arrived 10mins later and were allowed to sit at the side of the set while Jenna did her take. While we where watching Bernadette sent me a message of her with peter, I was so proud of her that she had done that on her own as she is so scared and timid. Kudos to Bernadette.
One of the crew waved us down but as we got there Peter was needed for a rehearsal. So we were then sat back on the bench to wait.
As we sat there a lovely member of crew said not to long now just sorting it. Next thing a man walks over to us and says to Roxann hello what’s your name, she didn’t answer so I did he then asked how old she was and she whispered 5. He said well im the director and would you like to come with me. We followed him and he called Peter over. Peter and Jenna where lovely and so understanding. Even though Roxann wouldn’t look at them or talk…which is due to her autism. She took everything in that was being said to her by peter. We spent about 10mins with them and I can not express how over joyed and thankful I am to the crew for making both my daughters dreams come true.

I was then shock to get a text from my sister to say that Roxann and Bernadette’s meeting with Peter capaldi was trending over the internet. So this is the reason for me doing this blog so you all know nothing was planed it was sheer luck on our doctor who hoilday to Cardiff which I’d been saving and saving for.

Thank you for taking the time to read this
Adama, Bernadette & Roxann

  2. I was so moved by what Peter Capaldi did.I had a lump in my throat as I was reading.
    Just another reason to love Doctor Who. Everyone of them are down to earth people.

  3. Thank you so much for sharing this beautiful story. Doctor Who is much more to me than just a TV show and has helped me through some tough times. It really restores my faith in humanity to see the cast and crew take time out for the people who really matter, fans such as your daughter.It puts a smile on my face. Kam

  14. I just wanted to say hello…I have Asperger’s and my son, who has Autism as well, are huge Doctor Who fans. Matt Smith is and always will be MY doctor. I cried for days before and after the regeneration. I haven’t been able to even watch old episodes b/c I cry all over again. As you well know, we don’t like change. But I must say…seeing your story and how Peter treated your girls…I have hope that the Tardis is in the right hands and I’m now fully prepared to give him a chance to be a good Doctor (just not MY Doctor!). So thank you to you and your girls for helping others of us in the Autism family who are Whovians and still having trouble with all of this! I hope Peter mesmerizes us all!

    • Thank you for sharing.
      Am sure peter will do a fine job.
      And I hope that you all like my next blogs. They will not be as exciting as this one tho haha. Just about our life and about the negatives and posatives of autism and how we get on day to day ect.
      I hope you and your family enjoy the new series if doctor who. X

  15. I love hearing about stories like this. All the Doctors are wonderful and many of them did such sweet things, especially for the children. Tom Baker visited schools, Matt Smith visited a kid in a hospital somewhere, and I’m sure there are more stories about all of them.

  28. Beautiful, beautiful story. No celebrities nor divas… an incredible show because of the humility in their hearts. I hope someday I can meet Matt, David and Peter. I have cried, laughed and got a number of emotions because of their great performances throughout the series. I know it’s a bit late (2016) but please tell your daughter on my behalf that I really loved her Dalek costume💜. Greetings from Chile.
