Awesome Fan Lindalee Reacts to Matt Smith Departure
But, after many days of mulling it over, weighing up his tenure and putting her words into context, 5 year old Lindalee has posted on YouTube her thoughts regarding dear old Matt Smith leaving Doctor Who this year.
Now some of you may want to instantly dismiss this video, but we urge you to watch it as it’s a very positive summing up with regards to Matt Smith and his tenure as the Eleventh Doctor. In fact, while we’re all worrying about ratings and the new Twelfth Doctor that we’ll be receiving in 7 months time (we get a total of 2 old Doctors and 2 brand new ones this year – that’s quite an anniversary treat) Lindalee’s message is so positive and so assured regarding the future of Doctor Who that a few people could learn from it.
There will always be change and regeneration in the show but it’ rather lovely so see child’s reaction to it and being reassured that they don’t fret about whether the show will still be successful as an adult fan might. Lindalee is unconcerned about questions that the show might be less entertaining with a new actor in the lead role and more excited about the prospect of a new Doctor – something that I think proves that Doctor Who will carry on for many, many years to come. The change doesn’t signify the end but a new beginning.
It also helps that little Lindalee recommends a classy replacement for Matt Smith when he departs, which shows that the lady has taste!
