Extraordinary Face

Appearing as part of a list of things to look out for in 2010, Matt Smith is described by new Doctor Who Executive Producer Steven Moffat as “very quiet” in the new Radio Times.

While the hardcore David Tennant fans might well be slightly afronted by Smith’s appearance on the web on the day of the Tenth Doctor’s departure, it’s fair to say that with a new series of Doctor Who in just a few months time, you should be dealing with this by now…

“At times he’s very quiet,” the Series 5 head writer told the magazine. “The strong, quiet man. Some of his most powerful moments are when he’s very, very quiet… very, very gentle, in a way that a very powerful person can be. There’s a scene I watched just recently in which he was chillingly good: a big confrontation-with-the-alien scene, and instead of playing it – as he could have – in a much more bombastic way, he was very quiet, very matter-of-fact, very simple.”

He finished: “He’s a very distinctive actor, and he has the most extraordinary face. And the camera loves him, so you’ll be seeing a lot of that face, suffering, in close-up, I tell you!”

The Eleventh Doctor will be with us soon.
