Nice praise for Matt in the Slate Dr. Who blog
This is a key, defining challenge facing any actor playing the Doctor. Doctor Who introduces new monsters and aliens each year, to be sure, but it also has a decades-spanning tradition of bringing its most popular monsters back for return engagements. Meaning that at some point a classically trained actor is going to find himself pretending to be awestruck and terrified staring at a beloved but goofy-looking adversary based on an ultra-low-budget design from the 1960s.
