Matt Smith confirmed.
God, he's a minger!
Thanks all you guys in the UK!
Okay. I take it back.
I bet Jack'll fancy him like mad!
Well, he's a bit young - but better than going the other direction. We'll see.
I am happy with the choice.
Well, good on the production team for keeping this a secret for months. I refuse to attempt to judge this guy until I've at least seen him in something, but I do love the sheer chutzpah of it- oh Steven Moffat, you weren't satisfied with waiting until May 2010 to piss off the fanbase.
Who the fuck is Matt Smith?! Out of all the good people rumoured they pick this guy?
As always, I'll wait and see what he does with the role. At the moment, I'd say he's a little young, but he might do well in the role.
I haven't seen him (or at least don't remember him) in any of his other roles though.
What Brendan said.
Now the Doctor's younger than I am. I'm feeling old. :/
I do believe I called it last night.
The bookies are never wrong. I should have stuck a fiver on it.
Dear God, the last time I saw a forehead like that, it was on the guy who'd discovered fire. He reminds me of Peter Boyle in 'Young Frankenstein'
Lazy choice by the Beeb - a chance to really shake up the character and they're sucking up to their young girl audience.
He does look like a young version of the Frankenstein Creature, doesn't he?
How does picking an ugly guy appeal to young girls?
Out all all the people they pick someone who is about my age?!
The great part of DT is he is older, but not old, and still youthful and fun and daring. Now we have this kid, I was really hoping for someone older!
Well everyone has been wishing for someone who can stay for a long time... He could do 10 years before he's even Tennent's age...
BBC press release here.
He's a child.
If they keep making him younger and younger, sooner or later he's going to regenerate into sperm.
So the big question is:
WHO is Matt smith?
