"People often don't know what you're talking about."

The Doctor is coming....

YEAH!!! I loves me some new Doctor Who.

The trailers don't give much to go on but it looks like Matt Smith may be compensating for his obvious youth by giving his portrayal a little more gravitas than David Tennant did. And if that's true then it's an excellent way to go.

This is one of the things I love best about Doctor Who, it's the thing that has allowed it to survive for over 45 years, and it's the thing that would probably never have been allowed on American TV... That the lead actor can leave and be replaced. Heck, that the entire cast can leave and be replaced by a new one and you actually look forward to the changes! Each new Doctor is different than the one before and each new actor brings something a little different to the table. And now it's about time for a new buffet to begin. All new dishes to sample and only a tantalizing glimpse of what's going to be on the menu.....

Drat. Now I'm hungry.
