First look at Matt Smith's Eleventh Doctor

This morning, I came across quite a few stories on this Doctor Who blog Life, Doctor Who and Combom about Matt Smith's Eleventh Doctor.

Filming has begun for season 5 of Doctor Who with new Doctor Matt Smith and his new companion Amy Pond played by Karen Gillan. BBC News says that ''The Time Lord's new look consists of tweed jacket, bow tie, rolled up trousers and black boots.'' I personally like the look of this new Doctor, which is both boyish and nerdy. The Daily Mail Online calls the look '' more retro and slightly Science teacher-esque.'' However, I’m not overly enthusiastic about his companion’s ''eighties'' look.

The website also provides us with a look at the Tardis, sporting differently colored windows – black and grey instead of white. We have yet to see the newly redesigned interior.

We also have confirmation that Alex Kingston is returning as Professor River Song. Since she’s a Stephen Moffat creation, I’m sure he will find a way to account for the fact that she seemed to have know David Tennant’s 10th Doctor rather than Matt Smith’s 11th one. Go to the blog for a plethora of pictures and set reports that are continually updated.

You can also view an interesting slideshow here.

  1. Why it keeps changing the Doctor? I don't get it.
    I like the way you write. You have rythm.
