In the real world outside the Whoniverse (“What?” I hear some of you say, “what world is this that you speak of?”), ex-companion Noel Clarke – Mickey Smith to the Ninth and Tenth Doctors – has had a “boy done good” moment.
Clarke has been conferred as an Honorary Doctor of Arts at the University of East London.
The thirty five year old star of Kidulthood was presented with the award at the London 02 recently and couldn’t be happier about it:
“I love doing what I do and to get an honour for that seems strange, but I’m also very thankful.”
Noel has proved time and time again his versatility and talent in the roles that he has undertaken so it’s fantastic to see him getting some recognition for all the hard work that he does.
Congratulations Mr Clarke!
