Last Saturday, the BBC announced that little-known actor Matt Smith will become the 11th regeneration of The Doctor in 2010. Current star, David Tennant, plans to leave the show after four special episodes this year and Season 5 begins.
I just finished Seasons 1-3 last night and i'd be lying if I said that i'm not kind of bummed Tennant will be leaving the show. He's brought such depth to the role and I know i'm not alone in saying that he may just be one of the best Doctors to own the title.
That said, i'll give the 26-year-old, youngest actor ever to play the Time Lord a chance...I would have never thought i'd fall so hard for this show again, so stranger things have happened. Good luck, Mr. Smith...er, Doctor.
