I know I never heard the name "Matt Smith" before his casting was officially announced.
I'd actually seen him a few years earlier in The Jewel in the Smoke
with Billie Piper, but I didn't realize that until I read it somewhere, because I hadn't remembered the name or much else about the production (except how lame it was to do something called The Sally Lockhart Mysteries
and just have Sally stand around while her sidekicks did all the mystery-solving).
