Re: Matt Smith would have stayed...

To some extent, every time any Doctor has done something wacky, he owes a small royalty check to Patrick Troughton. But they've all still made it their own in various ways.

However one positive of this is that Smith IS leaving. Am I the only one who has become utterly fed up with Smith?
Not the only one but I suspect one of relatively few.

But that's OK. I think I was one of the few fans who was desperately eager to see David Tennant leave when he left.

It's true that, to some extent, Tennant has become the iconic Doctor of the new series the way that Tom Baker was on the old series. I wonder if that will continue to be the case as time goes on? (I also wonder how dominant Tennant really is once you control for the sex appeal factor?)
