So, tomorrow night is the first outing of the New Doctor, number 11, Matt Smith. And to be honest, I wasn’t that keen on him. I mean, look at him:
And now lets look at David Tennant:
I’ll be honest and admit that I only started watching Doctor Who when The Tennant was in it. I went back and watched the first series with Christopher Eccleston, but the Tennant will always be my Doctor.
He can even pull off being a transvestite in the 90’s! (Oh Rab C Nesbitt, I could never understand you as a kid without the subtitles, and now I can understand you, I can’t watch without the subtitles for old times sake!)
Sorry, there was a point to this post besides looking at David Tennant.
Anyway. Matt Smith. I’ve not really read much about him on purpose, because I don’t want to make a decision on him till I’ve seen the first episode, but I caught him on the Zane Lowe show this morning (which was bloody amazing actually, a great alternative to Chris Moyles) and I like him. Honestly, someone who gets that enthusiastic over playing a Radiohead track, or Nessun Dorma at 5 to 10 in the morning is pretty awesome. Its just made me even more excited about the new series. Yes, he’s not going to be the same Doctor we love, but isn’t that a good thing?
Doctor Who: The Eleventh Hour can been seen on Saturday 3 April on BBC One at 1820 BST.
