So word came down in the last couple hours that 26 year old Matt Smith has won the role of the 11th Doctor on Doctor Who. My first reaction upon hearing the name? "Who??!!" Yes, I have never heard of this guy. Then again I had never heard of David Tennant when he was announced as Doctor number ten and I stomped my feet in anger and denial when he revealed that he was leaving the show. 26 seems awfully young to play the venerable Time Lord, but I'm willing to give him a shot. I just hope Tennant goes out in style once the last of his special episodes airs.

I was a little disappointed as when they started mentioning they had employed someone young I was thinking 'Ooh, James McAvoy'...

Time will tell.
