Dr. Who – The Eleventh Hour – American premiere tonight 9/8 C
Update: Variety review here
…Relative unknown Smith makes for a somewhat more traditional Doctor, perpetually distracted and cheerful, but also exhibits more than a touch of “Monty Python” in his abstemious physical comedy, hopping over fences and spewing mouthfuls of yogurt with a strange amount of dignity. Smith is the youngest actor to limn the role, though he doesn’t necessarily look it; he’s angular and weirdly ageless — at times it seems like an alien’s vision of a good-looking young man. Which is, of course, totally appropriate….
It was great, tune in to BBCAmerica tonight for the US premiere (if you didn’t get to catch its brief appearance on youtube…)
