Hold on to your sonic screwdrivers, because this story is adorable. The student body at UK’s Oakley Junior School got a big surprise last week, as Matt Smith showed up for a Doctor Who viewing party. Four of Oakley’s writerly finest entered into a script-writing contest sponsored by BBC earlier this year for a chance to see their three-minute episode of Doctor Who come to life. The students were planning on getting a sneak peek of the episode, but weren’t expecting to see Matt Smith himself. Yet another reason to love Matt Smith.
The special episode will air on BBC Three this Saturday, Oct. 1, but you can get a better look at the visit (and the sci-fi-loving students) in a video on BBC’s website.
