Former "Doctor Who" star Matt Smith has made a fan's day. Though Smith's time as the Doctor has come to an end, he took the time to send a video to one of its biggest fans, a 4-year-old named Jack Robinson.

According to the Portsmouth News, Jack has an inoperable brain tumor. Ever since he was diagnosed, his family has been doing whatever they can to make his dreams come true. That's where Smith comes in, as Jack is a huge "Doctor Who" fan.


Once word about Jack got out, it was English singer-songwriter Gary Barlow who alerted the child's dad, Terry Robinson, about the video. He's not sure how the story got to Smith, but he's grateful. "His eyes just lit up and he was so delighted," Robinson says of his son. "It has made his day."

In the video, which Smith filmed himself in Texas, the former Doctor sings his own version of the "Doctor Who" theme song and promises to try and see him when he returns to England. This video just cements how Smith is pretty much the coolest guy on the planet.
