Oh how I love it when Doctor Who comes into conversation on a Paul mcCartney website. My two favourite forms of entertainment together and I'm not alone.
Off to see the new episode/movie 'Day of the Doctor' on the big screen on Sunday. Have not atinicpated anything with as much excitement since I was a child. John Hurt is obviously a link between the 8th and 9th doctors as evident through the clip 'Night of the Doctor' on the BBC website. How this makes each Doctor the number they are is too confusing for my small brain - but really who cares. After all they can't stick to twelve generations or the show would not be able to continue for another 50 years.
As for Matt smith he was brilliant although I think hindered somewhat by some overly-awkward scipts from Steven Moffatt. Strange how this great writer of Blink etc, managed to make DW too complex for the average viewer. I will miss Matt smith very much but look forward to Peter Calpadi as I think it right that the continual run of young looking Doctors is becoming overtly trendy.
