Well according to some stories DT went into acting so he could play the Doctor.
Pity Matt Smith didn't.
What do you mean?

No it isn't?! We're talking about acting so I merely mentioned I don't think smith is very good. Not out of place at all.

But yes, entirely my opinion.

That's not really what you said, though, is it? Oh well. One should expect snark on the internet I guess.

Not to make too fine a point of it, but what I got was "this guy needs acting lessons", which isn't quite the same thing as "I'm not fond of his acting style".

Of course, when discussing art, talking about worth always ends up being a complete waste of time. Stating that one "likes" or "hates" an actor or a movie or a book, that they're "awesome" or that they "suck" is the least interesting thing one could say about them, and is ultimately meaningless.

No, he's just a natural-born wierdo (ala Tom Baker). Even better!

Tennant is a fun Doctor and a fine actor. (His Hamlet is the best one I've ever seen, having teetered well beyond the brink of madness.) But, after seeing how natural Smith is in the part, it's rediculously evident how labored Tennant's performance was. He makes Colin Baker seem calm & easygoing.

No he's not, Smith is nothing like Tom Baker on the weirdness scale. Matt Smith is normal in comparison to Tom Baker.

Re: 50TH Anniversary rumor

It's my personal belief that both Tom Baker & Matt Smith are genuine space aliens who coincidentally happened to be cast as a famous space alien on TV. However, I'd bet they're probably from different planets.

I've been watching Doctor Who for more than 30 years and I know more about Tom Baker than you might think.

This is more than your personal belief. This is a fact.

I don't care. The actor's life doesn't define the Doctor. His acting does. And Smith's feel much more real, more natural than Tom Baker's.
