David Tennant: Matt Smith Has the Right Idea

David Tennant and Matt Smith have chatted about Doctor Who, and the younger actor’s ever-imminent progession to being one of the biggest TV stars in the country.

Tennant revealed recently that Matt Smith and he chatted on the phone, but steered away from dispelling advice (can you imagine DT doing that anyway!?) with the Two Doctors instead discussing the future and how the role and everything associated with it will "unfold"…

"We chatted on the phone not long ago and we did exchange a few opinions on what’s about to unfold for him, but advice is a very dangerous thing. Matt’s got an extraordinary journey coming up in all sorts of ways and I’m sure he’ll find his own way through it."

"I could tell Matt was very up for it, though, and excited in all the right ways. He says he’s going to take it very seriously and he seems to have the right idea about playing The Doctor, so far as I can tell."
