Matt Smith was announced as the new Doctor Who this evening, and the internet went crazy. Mostly with ‘who?’. I remember him from the BBC’s Sally Lockhart adaptations1, which is good, given that he wasn’t a main character. I can see that he looks the part, too. No reason to think he won’t be cool, and Steven Moffat seems to like him, so that’s fine with me. I’ll miss David Tennant, though.
- incidentally, what’s happened to those? I really liked the first two, and was looking forward to The Tiger in the Well this Christmas, but it never turned up. Maybe Billie Piper spent this year filming Call Girl and being pregnant. [↩]
