A further thought on Matt Smith as the Doctor...

So, it's not clear whether newly-announced 11th Doctor Matt Smith watched Doctor Who at all as a kid. As far as I can glean from his Doctor Who Confidential interview, he's certainly aware of the show now, but I think it's safe to say that he's not a huge fan the way David Tennant is.

However, given that Smith was born in 1982, if he ever did watch the show as a kid, then "his" Doctor was either Colin Baker or, more likely, Sylvester McCoy.

And the idea of younger actor playing the part with a touch of Colin's blustery arrogance or, even better, a bit of Sylvester's alien trickster quality, really appeals to me. Provided that said younger actor can pull it off, of course.
