Viewers “Won’t be disappointed”

Creative Consultant for BBC Books’ range of Doctor Who books, Justin Richards, has revealed to the Coventry Telegraph that viewers “won’t be disappointed” by the new Doctor, Matt Smith.

Richards – whose Apollo 23 is one of the first Eleventh Doctor novels  – says that while values remain and mannerisms change from Doctor to Doctor, you can only get so much from the scripts. While he doesn’t say as much, it seems as though he’s had a sneak peek at least one early edit.

“We’re all sworn to secrecy of course but I’m confident viewers won’t be disappointed.”

“David Tennant was absolutely brilliant”, he says, “but what I have seen of Matt Smith is very good so it will be a very interesting new direction for the show.”

Apollo 23 is released on April 22nd.
