Next up, Mr Smith

Matt Smith is the new Doctor Who, facing the daunting task of replacing David Tennant. It’s an unenviable task, especially from someone I’m sure not many people have heard of.

I’ll reserve judgement until I’ve seen him in action, but on first impressions alone… he doesn’t look the part, and he certainly doesn’t sound the part.

There’s more information about him in this BBC press release.

What do you think?

  1. I think he might just work. He has to be able to be different than David Tennant. He can’t just be a cheap knock off.

    My thought is that he could work quite well as the kind of Doctor who seems (see what I did there 😉 to not have his power sorted out yet. To be quite arrogant with it. But also show that he’s quite scared of it. He needs to learn how to be a better Doctor. And he might well start off being quite a scary Doctor. Might work…

    Anyway I think he can do it – just. But only because they had to make a clean break. I think some of the other people who were mentioned we could imagine exactly what their Doctors would have been, and in general my reaction was “seen it”. They had already established themselves. What they needed, and what they may have got, is a Doctor who doesn’t know who he is yet… let alone us know who he is.

    Agreed.

    After watching the Doctor Who Confidential special, I started feeling a bit better about the whole thing. He’s kinda quirky which will mean he brings something different to the role.

    I just can’t quite see it yet, but I’m almost looking forward to seeing how he does.
