One nice thing about the new Doctor...
I don't know what to think about this bit of casting. I have seen the lad in a couple of things and he left absolutely no impression on me. Also, I do think 26 is a bit young for the Doctor...no gravitas to speak of in the under 30 set. Sorry for those of you in that age group...I am sure you have your serious moments. And I know there are many school boy crushes out there on the Jonas Brothers or whomever. Sadly, I didn't go for the late teens and early twenties even when I was 15. I always required a bit of worldly experience before my heart went pitter-pat. Still, let's not sell the lad short...maybe he can carry this off. He's got some huge Size Tens to fill, but he might have what it takes to make our jaws drop and leave all his naysayers enchanted. We won't know much until May 2010.
It's the reek of Twilight in the air that has me more concerned than anything else...that smirk, the black leather, the poofy hair. Doctor Who should define cool...not fall into step with whatever is trendy in the moment. The promo pics speak to me of lack of originality...and that is a bad sign for 2010.
