Unsure as to whether this is narcissistic or now, Smith seemed generally unconcerned, effectively declaring himself a born again geek. He even tunes in to watch it live!
“Yes I do watch the show as it goes out. I’m a complete geek.

There are of course shades of Tom Baker here – the actor, who in later years claimed that he never watched Doctor Who while he starred in it, famously dropped in on a family just before an episode aired in the mid-1970s so that he could see how it turned out.
