Manning Praises ‘Extraordinary’ Smith

Former Doctor Who companion Katy Manning has been praising the performance of current Who star Matt Smith.

Manning will reprise her role of Jo Grant (last seen heading off to the Amazon with Professor Jones in the 1973 classic The Green Death) in The Sarah Jane Adventures double header Death of the Doctor.

The episode sees the previous unacquainted companions united after the Doctor is declared dead. The pair soon get down to old business discovering an interstellar conspiracy gathered around UNIT HQ where the fate of the Time Lord lies in Clyde’s hands…quite literally.

She told TV Choice:

“His physicality is one of the most extraordinary things I have seen. I think it’s wonderful and so appropriate, so creative with this new Doctor.”

Manning also praised the ‘miraculous job’ he has done following on from the great men that went before him- even going as far as suggesting that Jon Pertweewould be pleased withthe choice of Smith for the role:

“He would be thrilled, but he’d be giving us notes!”

The first episode of Death Of The Doctor screens next Monday, 25th October, at 5.15pm on the CBBC Channel.

Everyone has a favourite Doctor and mine - just for his honesty, his fairness and his ability to not notice the Master's awful, awful disguises/anagrams (Sir Gilles Estram!?!) - has to be the Fifth Doctor, Peter Davison. The stories didn’t serve him as well as his acting served those stories.
