Was Matt Smith Disappointed By Later Doctor Who Scripts?
What’s your favourite run of episodes in the Matt Smith era of Doctor Who? Perhaps you’re a fan of the “fairytale” Series 5, or the mindbending/stealing Series 6? Alternatively, you may prefer the cataclysmic events that comprise Series 7 and its various specials.
Speaking to fans at the Wizard World Con last week, (via DoctorWhoTV) Matt revealed his thoughts on what he considered “the best storytelling” during his run on the show.
Series 5… had great adventure and great clarity and I loved that whole idea about the Pandorica and the Big Bang. It was the one I connected with most.
Looking back I think some of my best work was in my first series because I was actually taking real risks and that was a real moment.
Whereas when he recalled Series 6:
I think in terms of revelations River being Amy’s daughter was a bit ‘what the hell?!’
These comments might come as a bit of a surprise so close to the actor’s departure, but do you agree or disagree? The sensible thing to do at this stage would be to throw it open to a poll!
