Matt Smith is the Doctor

Doctor WhoThe BBC, having masterfully kept its casting decision under wraps for over a week, broadcasts a special edition of the making-of series Doctor Who Confidential, announcing that 26-year-old Matt Smith will be the eleventh Doctor. The youngest actor ever to play the part, Smith’s casting attracts controversy on the basis of little more than a few rushed, disjointed interview segments in Doctor Who Confidential. His first appearance as the eleventh Doctor is virtually an entire year away at the time of the announcement.
