The new Doctor is…Matt Smith

by on Jan.03, 2009, under Television

26-year-old Matt Smith, who appeared in the British series Party Animals, as well as alongside Who companion Billie Piper in The Ruby in the Smoke and The Shadow in the North as well as an episode of Secret Diary of a Call Girl will be the next (and youngest) Doctor, according to the Doctor Who Confidential special which just aired on BBC One. Such a young actor has an uphill battle in front of him…

    You are quick doc

    Where you sitting and refreshing the page? *g*

    Well, that kid is too young – the only good part is, i suppose, his companions are going to be young female hotties 😉

      I have my spies…actually, first word I got was from someone in England giving updates on a Disney related board of all places 🙂 BBC Entertainment still hasn’t updated their main page, but someone found the link.

    My favorite comments about him so far….

    1. His hair: “half a Flock of Seagulls”
    2. At this rate, the next Doctor will be sperm.

    That being said, I watched the “extended interview”, and one thing that’s worrying is him talking about developing his Doctor over the next 6 months… but Moffat said that he walked in and did a totally original take on the Time Lord, he had it nailed, etc. So if they’re both right, someone needs to tell Smith to not develop it any further.

    Oh, and I love his nervous mannerisms. That finger wiggling – that’ll be awesome to see on The Doctor.
