After months of speculation, the next incarnation of everyone's favourite Time Lord has been unveiled.



Matt Smith, star of the BBC's Party Animals, has been announced as the next Doctor and will take over from the immensely popular David Tennent in 2010, after the completion of four hour long special episodes. Smith, the youngest person ever to play the Doctor, beat veteran actors like James Nesbitt and Sean Pertwee to the role and ended rumours that the next Doctor might be a woman.



Smith had this to say on his casting, "I'm flabbergasted. I haven't slept really! [Doctor Who] is an iconic part of our culture, and now I'm taking that on. It's nerve wracking. Exciting. Exciting. It's an iconic part of our culture, my grandad knows about it, my dad knows about it, it's been going since 1963 it has the iconic status of Robin Hood or Sherlock Holmes."



Steven Moffat, who takes over from Russell T. Davies as executive producer after the special episodes are concluded, was full of praise for the young actor. "The Doctor is a very special part, and it takes a very special actor to play him. You need to be old and young at the same time, a boffin and an action hero, a cheeky schoolboy and the wise old man of the universe. As soon as Matt walked through the door, and blew us away with a bold and brand new take on the Time Lord, we knew we had our man."

Yeah, he seems a bit "off" to me, though I haven't seen his acting, so I can't say anything :|



Regardless, with Moffat as lead writer, the new series is going to be awesome. (but I wish Tennant would stay :cry: )

That hair looks weird on his head.



Dr. Who was acceptable to me, hope this does better but it'll take like 10 years for the new series to come to our tv network. :|

At first I saw that picture and I didn't think he was right.



But then on the news they did a feature on it, and they were saying that to play the Doctor, an actor needs to be young, charismatic and eager, but also wise and old. I think it actually applies to this guy, he should be good.

As long as he plays it well, and the storylines remain good, then I'm content.

The plots were ok, but they never really jumped out at me as amazing.



Also, for a returning, modernised, updated series which is one of the BBC's 'best' programmes with a big budget, I find the graphics are pretty bad.

I wonder what this new guy is going to be like. He's not exactly the most handsome incarnation, but if Moffat say's he's the perfect person for the job, I'll take his word until the start of next season.



I wonder who his companion will be?

That was the whole point of the original Doctor Who...in the 70's and 80's, the show was making buttloads of money, but they wanted to keep it low budget so they could go out and use all the money for ice cream (I don't know...)

That's exactly what I'd do.



And I think that's almost a direct quote from an interview with Simon Pegg after Shaun of the Dead was released.

Ugh, old topics. But with the new season starting up and Matt Smith's confidence in the role growing (which he's doing wonderfully in I think) I think it's fair to bump it. This season was filmed in the states, primarily in Utah. It's kind of funny, because that's where the new season of Torchwood: Miracle Day is going to be partially filmed. I kind of hoped that meant another convergence soon.

On a side note though...

Bit of sad news: http://www.bbc.co.uk...lisabeth_Sladen

It is with much sadness that we can announce Elisabeth Sladen, the much-loved actress best known for her role as Sarah Jane Smith in Doctor Who and CBBC's The Sarah Jane Adventures, passed away this morning. She was 63.

Lis first appeared as Sarah Jane in Doctor Who in 1973 alongside the Third Doctor Jon Pertwee and stayed for three and half seasons working alongside Jon and the Fourth Doctor Tom Baker. She returned to the role on numerous occasions over the years and, in 2007, was given her own spin-off series on CBBC - The Sarah Jane Adventures - where she would appear alongside new Doctors David Tennant and Matt Smith.

Saw the first episode of the new season. It was in memory of Elisabeth Sladen.

Got to admit it was quite a plot twist.

That's Steven Moffat for you. He's an absolute GENIUS.
