Angel Coulby, who stars in BBCâ€™sÂ Merlin (and was also in 2006â€™s The Girl in the Fireplace) has given her opinion on Eleventh Doctor Matt Smith. In an article published by Digital Spy she commented:
“I was really impressed…I actually saw Matt Smith… a long, long time ago… in a play in Manchester. He had quite a small part but he really, really stood out. And I kind of thought he’d be a bit of a star… and now he’s Doctor Who, which is amazing and brilliant. And I think his assistant [Karen Gillan] is brilliant as well. There is a really good sort of new dynamic that they have going on.”
Angel also mentioned that she is unsure how long Merlin will carry on for as characters seem to be getting to certain points where there is no more to write about them:
“I always imagine that once Arthur and Guinevere get together, we’ll be coming towards the end of our story,” she explained. “But I don’t know exactly what they’re planning for it.â€
Thank heavens for Doctor Who and its versatile format which means it will go on forever and ever, thereâ€™s always one show you can rely on!
