So Matt Smith is the eleventh incarnation of the Doctor in Doctor Who.
Does anybody else, upon watching the BBC video, think that producers wanted to/were told to get someone “David Tennant-y”? Because that’s what Matt Smith seems like – a low-rent version of David Tennant, and worse one who doesn’t seem to innately understand the awesomeness of Doctor Who (something Eccleston and Tennant both always brought to the role). Blathering on about how the role is “iconic” and how even his granddad knows who the Doctor is isn’t actually a reason to want to play the Doctor. Well, that’s not true, it is. It’s just not a particularly great reason.
