Doctor Who – Matt Smith’s Doctor’s Appointment

The cat is out of the Tardis-shaped bag. David Tennant’s successor, the man who will take over as the 11th Doctor from season 5 in Spring 2010, is…

26-year-old Matt Smith. He is the youngest actor ever to land the iconic role – fifth Doctor Peter Davison was 29 when he was given the role in 1981.

Smith is probably best known up to now for his role as Jim Taylor in BBC drama The Ruby and the Smoke and its sequel The Shadow in the North, alongside Billie Piper (who played former Doctor Who companion Rose Tyler) as author Phillip Pulman‘s heroine Sally Lockhart.

He also appeared with Piper in ITV2’s Secret Diary of a Call Girl and had a leading role in BBC Two’s political drama Party Animals, in which he played a parliamentary researcher.
