New Doctor Tests Patience

Who? Doctor Who fans must be scrubbing their heads. Matt Smith, hardly a household name despite his sub-Twilight neck, jaw and hair -line, has jumped past hopefuls such as women, black actors, and thespians of note, to become the next Doctor in the British classic series. I hope the next Poet Laureate is not some equally inauspicious and undeserving whipper-snapper. Smith was good in those Pullman TV shows, but not stellar. The BBC should have done more.

Every single time the actor playing the doctor changes, I complain about it. (Nobody can really compare to Tom Baker.) But then frequently I eat my words. Maybe this will be the same ... or maybe this new guy is going to travel only to the 1980s, where he can sing Duran Duran songs.
