At the Chicago TARDIS convention today, Peter Davison was on stage for a Q&A, and everyone was asking typical questions about his work as the Doctor. Then a girl comes up to the mic and says something like, “I just wanted to tell you that I started watching you as the Doctor when I was 14 and I was really depressed. And I just wanted to let you know that you really helped me through everything. And thank you for that.”

It’s sort of amazing to remember, even amongst all of the drama and fights and wars we may see on tumblr, how much this show means to so many people and how much of an effect it can have, especially to someone who needs it.
