I think I finally know what ‘getting old’ feels like – I’m only 27 (born in 1981) but having just watched Matt Smith (26) announced as the new Doctor Who – I feel old.
He’s only a year younger than me (born in 1982) but when someone is announced as the main character in one of the biggest and most established shows on television – and that someone is younger (even if it is only a year) than you – it kind of hits home a bit.
But to be honest I’m pretty pleased with the choice – having seen and loved him in Party Animals (the only show he’s been in that I’ve actually watched) I think with Steven Moffat at the helm he will be able to pull both a dark and flipsiided whimsy of a Doctor out of his hat.
Actually I really hope he has a hat – I think the time has arrived for a Doctor to have a hat – nto sure what type of hat as long as it isn’t a baseball cap – actually I think he needs old fashioned clothes – something you wouldn’t expect a twenty-something year old to wear.
Anyhoo – I have to make tea for my wife so I’ll leave you with a few YouTube videos until I can process the information further and bring you more of my thoughts.
Oh and there is the new Torchwood miniseries in 2009 as well – a week long special. Not to mention the books, audiobooks and eighth doctor radio series.
