I think I could live with never, ever, ever hearing Matt Smith say "Baby" again. Weird. ^______^




And furthermore:

I particularly like the logic in this comment by Kit (sixth one down, and arguing with the OP somewhat):

"Smith isn't just good at portraying an old being in a young body, he's extraordinary at portraying the Classic Doctor in Matt Smith's body, in a way that Eccleston and Tennant either couldn't or didn't wish to. For the viewers who are familiar with the old series, this provides a convenient shortcut to characterization- we know Smith's Doctor already because we've watched him for 26 years, and we see a character arc spanning the entire course of the show's run. It's illusory- it was created by chance and actor changes and cobbled-together plot arcs penned by writers who never even met- but especially for someone like me, seeing the show after the fact as a single aggregate entity, it's impossible not to read it as teleological. This season and Smith's Doctor become a late chapter in a thick book rather than an independent novella, and so for us the character isn't a cypher because the character work was already done in earlier chapters."
