Matt Smith Speaks
An extended interview with Matt Smith from Doctor Who Confidential has been made available online via Youtube (and the BBC Website).
The 26 year old Eleventh Doctor has a big job ahead of him, and he certainly seems to be aware of the demands and stressed that being the Doctor will bring to his everyday life.
"I feel proud and honoured to have been given this opportunity to join a team of people that has worked so tirelessly to make the show so thrilling.
"David Tennant has made the role his own, brilliantly, with grace, talent and persistent dedication. I hope to learn from the standards set by him.
"The challenge for me is to do justice to the show’s illustrious past, my predecessors, and most importantly, to those who watch it. I really cannot wait."
There’s much more to come – personally I can’t wait for the big Doctor Who Magazine interview.
