|Matt "Doesn't He Look Tired?" Smith
Back in November I mentioned him as a possible (albeit as sidenote
) in THIS
post and yesterday I dismissed him as being too young and a bit too similar (despite his quality) to Davey T
(I'm sure the BEEB ain't complaining) but MATT SMITH is
The Eleventh Doctor.
Hands in pockets? Worra scruff!
enjoyed Party Animals
(the only thing I've seen him in) and was greatly disappointed when it was cancelled; it even made my end of year Top Ten. Full marks to The Moff & Co.
for being so brave in casting such a whipper~snapper AND
an unkown (though people who watch telly 'properly' know who he is).
"Cam's calling me Matty S, already??"
I'll be honest with you reader, when Davey T
was announced as Chrissy E's replacement I had no strong feelings either way; though I didn't think he looked very Doctor~y.
My hopes were neither high or
low. I'm not a prediction kind of guy, that's just the way I roll. But the casting of Matty S
(as he will now be known) does get the ole trouser region braced for some action in a very real and meaningful way.
He seems as excited as I am!
He does have a 'look' and those who have seen him will not doubt his acting chops. Most amusingly, however, is The Guv'nor himself, Stevey M
who prefers 'older' actors to play The Doctor
and has cast the youngest ever.
The future is lookin' good. Just a bit annoyed we have to sit through a year of Davey T
before the new guy takes over (that is a joke
for those too idiotic to realise)... Now can we get Andrea Riseborough
as a companion?
