Doctor Who and science go together like peas in a pod, so it comes as no surprise that the Time Lord himself only went and turned up to the March for Science in London today (April 22).

Well, when we say Time Lord, we mean Peter Capaldi – but we guess you have to live in the real world sometimes.

The actor turned up to the London part of the global march earlier today to show his support for scientific progress, as well as to raise awareness of science's potential.

And it's safe to say that marchers were pretty happy to see Capaldi turn up and get involved too, with many posting their own pictures of the actor taking part on social media:

The worldwide marches are also in defiance against Donald Trump's dismissal of climate science and proposals to cut scientific research.

The official website reads: "At a time when fake news is rife and independent experts face challenges in getting their message heard, the March for Science is a celebration of the vital role that science plays in each of our lives and the need to respect and encourage research that gives us insight into the world.

"The March for Science champions science and the cross-border collaborations that are vital in enabling progress."
