Dr Whom?

Those who know me will indeed be aware of my Doctor Who fan tendencies. It's all , I am sure , to do with growing up here in Australia with a healthy diet of BBC imports.
While I have a love-hate relationship with the whole "new who" series, news of a brand new Doctor is always exciting. (note to self:too many uses of the word new in one sentence) So hats off to Matt Smith, the youngest actor yet cast in the role. One thing always guaranteed is that you will be remembered for playing the part no matter how well you work out in it...
While Australians by and large love the Doctor (It still rates it's socks off even when the ABC decide to play it 6 months after the UK run... grumble.) , that seems to be nothing compared to the UK where the news of the new actor was deemed worthy of a time slot of it's own on BBC1.
