I’ve just been watching Doctor Who Confidential, which announced who the Eleventh Doctor is going to be. I’m a Dr Who fan, but I can’t say that I’m very excited about the outcome.
Matt Smith is 26, looks about 17 in real life and judging by the interview shown, has ridiculous hair that he can’t stop faffing about with. He’d fit right in with the cast of Twilight, but I just can’t seen him as The Doctor, no matter how many times Russell T. Davis gushed about his brilliance.
It’s not encouraging. I can only assume/hope he’s a fabulous actor, since based on the interview footage I wouldn’t have cast him in a school play.
Oh well, I suppose I can always watch old episodes on DVD instead and there are thankfully four more David Tennant Doctor Who specials this year before the regeneration hand-over.
