New Doctor Who Announced

We told you yesterday that the New Doctor Who would be announced today and indeed he has. Matt Smith, star of the BBC show Party Animals becomes the youngest ever timelord. Smith is only 26 years old and will take over the role in 2010. The teases about the announcent said that the new Doctor would be unique. I fail to see how Smith validates those claims. Unique might have been a woman, a minority, or Dundee resident Stuart Wood. I guess we can chalk up the pre-announcement hype to exaggeration. Smith might be great but I don’t think the choice is as groundbreaking as the BBC public relations people would lead you to believe.

Any Doctor Who fans out there? What do you think about this pick?
