So, David Tennant has hardly even departed and we’re onto Matt Smith already.
The new series, destined to commence from Spring 2010, marks the transition from the long-standing team of David Tennant, Russell T Davies and Julie Gardner to Matt Smith, Piers Wenger and show-runner Steven Moffatt.
Moffat has been responsible for many of the stronger episodes in the new series, but whether the tone of new Who can radically change, and risk upsetting new fans brought up on Tennant and RTD, is another thing entirely.
This trailer from the BBC shows Smith’s Eleventh Doctor with Amy Pond – played by Karen Gillen – adventuring against Daleks and Weeping Angels, amongst others.
There’s also Alex Kingston as River Song, the Doctor’s lover, and a brief glimpse at what may be the new TARDIS interior in the trailer.
Still, the most extraordinary thing about the new 2010 Who trailer is Matt Smith’s face.
