Matt Smith (age 26) is the new Doctor Who
http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/entertainment/7808697.stm

Since Steven Moffatt, the new producer, has been on record saying the Doctor should be an older man, why he's following in the footstep of ageist pig Russell T Davies is a good question. (As everyone knows, Russell is on record saying anyone over 45 is too old to play the role. Which is strange, the first three actors were older than 45... Tom Baker was 40... )

(has Moffatt's comment)

(contains a response over RTD's bullshit ageist line)

So now Moffatt has proven himself an outright liar, I wonder what else will be revealed about his mark on the show...

William Hartnell - and I remember seeing the first episode live - yes I'm THAT old. And he was born in 1908.
