Eleventh Doctor

So... Matt Smith is the 11th doctor. Even though he had the best odds, I must admit to being somewhat surprised. I have to admit that he had a certain quality, especially around the eyes, and the lower jaw. I liked the thing he was doing with his fingers in the interview on BBC3 tonight, when trying to think of what to say next, the wiggly thing about 20-25 seconds into the clip on the BBC site - that would work in a Doctor, I think (if not over-done).

The main thing for me is to make the Doctor a bit less 'kissy' and more 'other worldly'; some hard SF like 'blink' - and defeating enemies without destroying them utterly (in cases where you want to bring them back without jumping through too many hoops)...

Fingers crossed....
