The 11th Doctor, Matt Smith, is never less than charming whenever he is interviewed about DOCTOR WHO, and this bit, from the show This Morning, is Matt at his best. I’m not sure any serving Doctor since Tom Baker has been a better ambassador for the show.
In addition to flogging next week’s Christmas Special, “The Snowmen,” Matt covers quite a bit of ground, including why he incorporated liberal amounts of Clouseau, Blackadder and Frank Spencer into the Doctor, his Mum, the fans (“I think people mistake craziness for enthusiasm”), his “TARDIS boots,” the new TARDIS interior (“space IKEA”), what’s written on that Type 40 plaque in the console room – and hints about the monster in one of the upcoming back eight episodes!
Definitely worth watching. Bonus: The presenters mention the 50th anniversary but do not ask Matt when he’s going to leave the role! Kudos!
