No Emulation, Says Smith

Matt Smith is Doctor WhoNew Doctor Who Matt Smith has explained that it is pointless to try and emulate any of his predecessors.

Speaking to AOL TV, the actor once again admitted to being a fan of Patrick Troughton, while also revealing that he is in fact in awe of each previous actor.

“In terms of emulating any of the past Doctors, I don’t think that’s something you can try to do or think about.

“I know it’s a cliché, but I can’t believe this is work. It never gets dull because each month there are new characters and actors coming in.”

Matt Smith’s time is almost upon us – with The Eleventh Hour on premiering this Saturday 3rd April at 6.20pm, a new issue of Doctor Who Magazine due later this week and a Radio Times cover (more news on that at 12.01am), this long-awaited new era of Doctor Who is ready to go!
