Haven't posted in ages, and yay be it that Doctor Who has finally prompted me to.

Matt Smith = the Eleventh Doctor.

First and foremost, he is so, so young, and he looks it. I don't care what Moffat said about him seeming older - he doesn't. He's very quirky looking. Possibly moreso than Tennant. And like Tennant he's an 'unknown' but unlike Tennant he hasn't been acting for like, over a decade. THAT SAID. I really like him. I've seen him only in The Ruby in the Smoke and I remember loving his character at the time. In any case, his youth, eccentric looks and possible lack of experience are all valid points, of course they are, but I am still extremely positive about him and willing to give him and the DW team the benefit of the doubt. Ten / Tennant was my first Doctor, so this will be my first changeover, but I'm really into it. Like they said on the Confidential, regeneration is really exciting, wondering what you're going to get in the new Doctor. Given all the things that seemingly go against him, his youth, his inexperience, etc, I actually think it could all make him even more interesting and his introduction will make the DW team really reach for the highest heights to prove his worth. I can't wait to see it.

I'm basically sitting back and enjoying the obvious wank explosion. I mean there's wank in the DW fandom over window sizes and hairstyles, so I really ain't takin' the temper tantrums and toy throwing very seriously. DW is an awesome show and I really look forward to seeing what they do with Matt's Doctor. The bitchy stomping of a few hundred disgruntled people who haven't even had the chance to see him in action yet matters very little in the end.

And on Paterson Joseph, I really really really wanted him... but y'know, there's always next time! PJ for Twelve? ;o)

HI! He is a surprise, but I think a good one.

I've been meaning to do a catch up post over Xmas but totally forgot! College is hard work! I'm done with semester 1, will get my results in Feb. Eeek! I'm optimistic though. I'm going to keep trying my best in sem 2 anyhow. I'm doing an elective about Cleopatra! We get to watch the Liz Taylor film. It's crazy! I can't wait!

And as a 21st birthday present my mother's helping me pay for a trip to Australia either summer of 09 or 10. You should tell me where you were that time, maybe give me some ideas on where to go. Also, how's your edumacationising going!? ;o)

PS yey Australia! My angst and excitement over my trip reminds me of when we first met ;) Anything you need/want to know, don't hesitate to ask.

I'm just going to use my Jack & Martha icon again here now xXx
