Things have gotten so bad that at first I thought "touching letter" was a written accusation he'd inappropriately touched the kid.

Dated the letter 1913... Hmm...

Unfortunately Peter wrote the letter with the voice of Malcolm Taylor, so it started off with "Listen to me, you little gobshiet..."

I can't remember if a Farker told this story or if I heard it on a podcast but this reminds me of a story told not terribly long ago, right after Roger Moore passed.  in the 70s, the kid was a child actor and had the chance to work with Roger Moore, who of course he knew as James Bond.  During a break in shooting, the kid goes up to Moore and says, "sir, are you James Bond?", right in front of the entire crew.  Moore goes, "oh no, that's just a characer, my name is roger moore!"  the kid was kinda bummed out.

later on, Moore goes up to the kid and pulls him aside, and privately tells him, "of course i'm 007!  I'm on a mission right now as matter of face.  but i couldn't say that in front of the crew.  some of them might be Blofeld's men.  Can you keep my secret?"  the kid lit up.

decades later, the grown up kid meets Moore at some function, asks him, "do you remember meeting a kid back in the day, blah blah blah?" and Moore claimed he did remember.  "I was that kid!"  Moore supposedly laughed his ass off when the guy told him the story.

"Dear David,  Don't worry. It's not gone forever.  I'll regenerate a new one if I need it"

Was this supposed to be the story about the kid who met Roger Moore in an airport, and then that kid grew up and worked a UNICEF event where he met Roger Moore again?

......sure!  in broad strokes, yeah, the kid meets Roger Moore, then meets him again, whatever, 3-4 decades later or some shiat.

Maybe it's just me, but when I was 9, I didn't think that TV show characters were real people and what happened to them on TV actually happened to them in real life.

I've been told that my Great Grandma had the same reaction. If she saw an actor who had been "killed" in an earlier show or movie she would get all worked up wondering how they came back to life.

I had random things sort of like that. Like watching the Les Miserables 10th anniversary concert at 14 years old, I thought the actors really hated each other.

Or one of my favorite ones was it took me till 18 to realize that she was singing on a stage with a matte painting and not outside:

Wonderful, Wonderful Day - Seven brides for seven brothers

I can be really dumb sometimes.
