Matt Smith's Doctor

I'm only 3 episodes in to season 5 of Doctor Who (so no spoilers, please!), but wanted to log in my surprising love for Eleven and Amy.

So far, despite Matt Smith being (I think) the youngest Doctor on record, he actually comes across as more fatherly, even grandfatherly, toward the humans than Nine or Ten did. The old-man clothes might be part of it, but his mannerisms (and those brow ridges, somehow) are too. In short, he had me at his faintly shocked delivery of "Get a girlfriend, Jeff!"

And Amy--feisty! Scottish! Ginger! Yay! I'd totally want her if I were gay.

It feels like a completely clean start to me: new companion, new Doctor, new TARDIS even, with the plus of having Moffat as chief writer. That whole oddly-human angst of Ten's that I did love at the time but which was emotionally exhausting--eh, we're done with that, we're starting over with plain old fun.

But the Daleks in fresh new Kitchen-Aid colors? That was just silly. Come on.

New Who icon to come, as I get further along and find 11th-Doctor moments I want immortalized. In the meantime Ten can stand in.

Moffat's good at crafting creative sci-fi-based plots rather than just wallowing in the "ending the world again" drama. I credit him for a lot of the improvements.

I think Steve is definitely appreciating Amy as well. ;) Those short skirts...

Me: "Should I get a skirt like that?"
Steve: "Just get a normal skirt and cut it in half."

I have a girl crush on Amy/Karen Gillan. You're not alone.

And YES. To all of this.

She makes me want to groom my eyebrows so they're as cute as hers.

Hee! And a kissogram, too--lots of sexy potential there. I feel sure that point will crop up again. Kudos to Matt for defying his age and making a great 900-year-old!

I already like him from what little I've seen. Looking forward to seeing his future greatness too!

From what I've seen of Rory so far, I like him quite a bit. He's the type of sweet, smart doofus I can completely relate to. :)
