And The Eleventh Doctor is............

The Eleventh Doctor

Matt Smith although relatively unknown, has appeared in Alan Bennett's play 'The History Boys' at the National Theatre in London, and alongside Christian Slater in Swimming with Sharks in the West End.who has previously starred alongside Billie Piper in 'The Ruby In The Smoke'. At the grand old of 26, is the YOUNGEST actor to play the part - Peter Davison was 29 when he took over from Tom Baker who was 40 (previously the youngest actor).

MS: "I've got this wonderful journey in front of me where I've got this six months to build this Time Lord - and that's such an exciting prospect."

Smith will be the 11th Time Lord and will take over from David Tennant who leaves the show at the end of 2009. He will be seen in the forthcoming fifth series that will be broadcast in 2010.

I have seen his work over the years and he has been excellent in each part he has played, let's hope he does te role of The Doctor credit!
