Peter Capaldi

How Much More Proof Do You Need, Internet: Peter Capaldi Is AWESOME!

Few months ago, some fans had an idea to show support to Peter Capaldi and welcome him to his role on Doctor Who. Following the lead of the owner of the Tumblr blog F***YesPeterCapaldi, people created drawings and artworks to be combined into a scrapbook to be sent to Capaldi in December as a Christmas gift.

As with loads of other fanmail sent to stars, those sending it don’t necessarily expect to get anything in return. There are some celebs who make it a point to look at all or part of the mail the public sends them. Sometimes, the assistants or others the star employs will send back a postcard or quick letter or maybe even a nice photo signed by the star.

But this tribute apparently touched Mr. Capaldi and he felt the need to do a little more…

He didn’t just send back a nice signed photograph or letter. He went a little further.

At least 2 of those that contributed to the book have received signed postcards, each with a different bit of artwork drawn and painted by him behind the promotional image of him as the Twelfth Doctor!  

One of those that received a postcard, Erin, wrote on her blog something that seems to completely sum up Capaldi and his fan interactions and just who he is in general -

Point is, Peter Capaldi is not just taking on his dream role; he’s aware that he’s just inherited a huge worldwide fanbase, and is trying his very hardest to do right by them. It’s a masterclass in class, so shoutout to the Doctor, for being the Doctor for us, before series 8 has even aired.

Now this isn’t to say that every fan that sends something to Capaldi will get such a lovely item back from him. But it goes a long way in showing all of us what a lovely person he is and I think even how excited he is to have this role! Peter Capaldi is AWESOME!

About

Rebecca is new to the Who world, having only recently watched the entire new series in a span of 8 days. She is no stranger to sci-fi though, being a life long Trekkie and has vague memories of seeing the 4th Doctor on US television as a child. When not watching, reading, blogging, or talking about Doctor Who, she is a fan of pop culture and loves movies and books so much she has to keep a list of both so she doesn't forget any of them. She also likes to make attempts at various forms of art including photography and painting. Rebecca is currently working her way through as many classic serials and as many books related to the show that she can find and wishes she could have been with the Doctor and Amy when they met Van Gogh.
