And there goes another one. Matt Smith is the Doctor that really seemed to appeal to the American audiences, since it was under his term the show really started building popularity in the US. It'll be interesting to see how the next Doctor goes over with Americans.
I don't really think it was Matt Smith...I think that Doctor Who has steadily been building a US fanbase since the start of the new Series. NuWho had a build-in audience in over yonder, but over here it pretty much had to start from scratch. Those people that liked it shared it with their friends, who then shared it with their friends, and so on, until finally it was kinda-sorta heard of.
