New Doctor

Here’s some very important news. The BBC has announced a new Doctor:

Doctor Who? After months of febrile speculation the BBC tonight revealed the identity of the 11th Doctor.

Not a prominent black actor, nor a woman, nor any of the high-profile names touted to play the iconic Time Lord.

Instead, the honour of wielding the sonic screwdriver and battling Daleks and Zygons has fallen to relative unknown Matt Smith – at 26 he is the youngest Doctor in the 45 years since the Tardis first landed at the BBC.

Smith, from Northampton, whose TV debut was in the 2006 adaptation of Philip Pullman’s The Ruby in the Smoke, which also starred former Doctor Who companion Billie Piper, said he was so excited at landing the coveted role he paced his room for three days smiling to himself. “I’m flabbergasted. I haven’t slept, really, to be honest,” he said….

As a person who remembers the very first Doctor I’m looking forward to the new season. I hope he gets it going again with Rose/Billie Piper.
