And the New Doctor is…

And the New Doctor is…

The Eleventh Doctor has been announced, and he shall be 26 year old Matt Smith. (Mind you, by the time he premieres, he’ll be 27.) Smith (Ha! A Doctor who really is named Smith!) has previously appeared in Ruby in the Smoke, The Shadow in the North, and Secret Diary of a Call Girl, among other things. You can check out his IMDB listing here.

So, there you go. The youngest ever Doctor will appear via the usual regeneration scene on Easter of 2010. It looks like that is when they are playing the last of David Tennant’s four specials. The next series will then start a few weeks later. What do you think? I’m off to watch Ruby in the Smoke so I can see for myself what sort of actor he is. I’ve been meaning to watch it anyway.

    I must be ageing – his surname didn’t sink in. Maybe he has a secret middle name that is ‘John.’

    Life is strange: when the Doctor had white hair I was a toddler and now he’s half my age.

    I would describe my attitude as cautiously hopeful. He’s got the intense, strange part down. Hopefully he can do the brainy part as well as the older-than-the-universe part. :) I’m still angry that there’s a regeneration coming up so soon, but sometimes change is a good thing.

    Ditto, Dr. Geek

    That would be hilarious, Gillian. I wonder if there is some way that we can find out his middle name. Hmm…

    I’m with you. Deb. Cautiously hopeful.

    The Shadow in the North sure was awful, eh folks?

    Ben, I haven’t seen it. But I had sort of worried that was the case. Thanks for the warning.
