Matt Smith has been tapped to replace David Tennant in 2010 as Doctor Who.
Lead writer and Executive Producer Steven Moffat said "The Doctor is a very special part, and it takes a very special actor to play him. You need to be old and young at the same time, a boffin and an action hero, a cheeky schoolboy and the wise old man of the universe. As soon as Matt walked through the door and blew us away with a bold and brand new take on the Time Lord, we knew we had our man. 2010 is a long time away but rest assured the Eleventh Doctor is coming - and the universe has never been so safe."
The BBC posted an interview with Matt.
I am not sure how I feel about his casting. He will be the youngest Doctor, replacing Peter Davison who is one of my favorite Doctors. I trust Steven Moffat. He has made a lot of great decisions about the series, and I trust that he will do what is best for the series.
