ladies and... well... ladies, we have a new doctor!  
It's been announced! Matt Smith is going to be the 11th Doctor and I honestly couldn't be more thrilled! There have been a few complaints that he's too young (psh, I'll complain when the Doctors under drinking age) and too ugly (ARE YOU KIDDING ME? THEY'RE SURELY BLIND!) but I think he's going to be the best doctor yet :D

So be sure to check out this very awesome picture of him and the massively more awesome interview of him re: the revelation he's the doctor. He's so cool with his gestures and his accent and his everything :D Side note: he reminds me of Mr. Pattinson. I think it's the hair.

To be totally honest, I've never been a fan of 10 and we barely even got a chance to see 9 so I'm thinking 11 will be my doctor <3 This coupled with the fact that Steven Moffat is the new head writer is going to make season 5 un-flippin'-believable! Aargh, why can't it be 2010 already!

And now, if you'll excuse me, wikipedia (and not IMDB for some reason :/) has just informed me that he was in an episode of Boston Legal so I must go watch that right now!

edit: okay, well wikipedia was wrong, that's why it wasn't on IMDB. Lets see if it was right about The Secret Diary of a Call Girl :D

WOAH. do you know who that is? It's Jim Taylor from shadow in the north which had all sorts of lovely people in it.

Season 5 shall be interestingly awesome.

ps. why awake so early?

well if it has your thumbs up and Matt Smith in it, I'm off to find a copy :D

my sleep patterns are totally nuts lately, going to sleep at 5:00am and waking up at 2:00pm, so my plan was to stay up later than usual: 1:00pm and then wake up late: 9:00pm (I just got up) and hopefully I'll be able to stay awake until a normal sleeping hour tomorrow and everything will be good again :D

I object to your title. Dude here!

I just found out about the news from wikisurfing before I checked my dailies. Otherwise I would've found out from your post... Anywway. He didn't seem as charismatic to me as Tennant does and seemed a bit rambly in the interview. He didn't seem to hold my attention as much. Of course, Ten is my favourite doctor (I've only seen the new series though) so it might just take some getting used to on my part.

Why must they psych us up so much so early? The Doctor Who PR team are evil.

hehe, I know. But as far as percentages on my flist go, we're greatly outnumbered. It was a joke :P

They are evil. I am SOO psyched now! I can't wait to see 11 in action already! I love his crazy rambling and uncharismaticness :D

Nine and Ten had their moments for me, but neither one of them are MY Doctor. Here's to hoping Eleven finally does it for me.

Yeah, definitely. They've never really felt like mine either. Hopefully lots of people continue hating on his uglyness and he can be my (fine... OUR) own personal doctor <3

I really hope that he stays around for at least 2 seasons and that he lives up to my expectations. Then again, Stephen Moffat has never let me down yet so... :D

LOL :D The hate just makes me like him more.

Same here! =)

yeah, I'm getting a little nervous though. I've seen a lot of... love for him recently *shudder* oh no, he's popular now, I don't think I like him anymore!!

hehe, I kid :P :D

Ha! Considering your excitement, I don't think I could've believed it anyway. ;)

You're the first one on my flist that's absolutely positive:) Had you heard of him before?

I'm carefully optimistic, I think a lot of great things can be done with a younger Doctor to shake up the traditional role. But we'll have to wait and see how he acts.

I hope for his sake he's not familiar with internet, though. The things people say about him!
Josh: doctor whoblueymcphluey on January 4th, 2009 12:50 pm (UTC)
and I don't even think this post conveys how absolutely positive I am. Although I must admit, I'm being my usual somewhat shallow self and to some extent judging his awesomeness by his appearance. :P I love that he's a little awkward looking and that people are calling him ugly

No, I've never heard of him before (although I had seen and ignored him in The Secret Diary of a Call Girl) but that interview instilled me with all kinds of faith in him. :D

Now I'm just trying to find a way around making a wallpaper with such a low quality picture :P

I wish I was optimistic about the new doctor. But I'll just have to wait and watch.

oh how could anyone complain about that?
Joshblueymcphluey on January 4th, 2009 05:57 pm (UTC)
oh, I know! As I said, they're clearly blind. Or insane maybe?
