The eleventh Doctor is Matt Smith. SN likes the hair.
An hour into the audition process they had already seen the eventual actor to take on the role.
Chosen as he was a good actor, definitely. Will be appear opposite Billie Piper again? Could be they may well find some way to make that happen.
As DT say Matt has got to define his take on the role. But I'm quite impressed from what I've seen him in. So all in all well done guys with the casting no wonder RTD is jealous.
18:06 Aw DT's letter to his sucessor. Sweet.
18:21 Excellent Tweet from Wil Wheaton (aka Wesley Crusher from Star Trek: TNG) "Hey, at least the new companion isn't Scrappy Doo" glad to know even the American's are talking about it, ok even if they are in the business.
