I’m as depressed as any Whovian is to find out that Matt Smith
is finally departing the Tardis. Unlike David Tennant
’s departure, which seemed very well-timed in my opinion, Matt Smith
’s upward trend in the role makes me feel cheated that I’m being robbed of this actor when it’s plain to see that he’s only going to get better, demonstrated by his shining performance in Series 7
and his chemistry with the lovely Jenna-Louise Coleman
. He may not have been my first Doctor, but you know what? He was My Doctor (sorry Chris).
I might have continued to be depressed had I not suddenly realised that a fantasy I’ve been having for quite some time now might finally happen. Eddie Izzard
No matter what you think of the man as a comedian, he’s certainly an intellectual fellow and a committed career actor.
