uh…Matt Smith? So um, yeah.
I’m not shocked that Doctor Who is going with a relative unknown for the role, but the fact that Smith is by far the youngest actor ever to play the Doctor seems like they’re going for a wildly different direction in the 2010 series.
Granted I was hesitant about Tennant taking over after Christopher Eccleston’s all-too-brief stint, but he’s gone on to become my all time favorite Doctor.
So that’s it, folks. Once the Christmas special airs in the US, we’ll only have 3 more ‘specials’ spread across 2009 before the next official series begins.
Man, I hate waiting.
